If you’ve been looking for the perfect sneaker to invest in this season, look no further. When it comes to choosing a trainer it is often hard to choose from the sea of shoes out there, which is why we’ve put together a list of sneakers inspired by birthstones.
A birthstone is a gemstone that represents a person’s month of birth, and have been around since the early 19th century and were standardized in 1912. The gems range from colorful stones like ruby and topaz, to clear stones like diamonds and pearl, and were once used as “magic stones that would make the birth easier.”
Take a look at our list of sneakers based on your birthstone below, ranging from adidas and Nike trainers to luxury options from Balenciaga and Gucci. Keep reading below to find out which shoe you should invest in, and let us know in the comments which stone is yours.
