Fashion fans go wild as M&S' sell-out leopard print trainers come back in stock (but they've nearly sold out already)

Marks & Spencer is no stranger when it comes to launching a cult product.

First came the £199 suede skirt in 2015 – which sold out so many times that the high street stalwart launched a pre-order waiting list – before a trench coat sent fans wild.

Last season, it was a navy constellation-print midi dress that littered our Instagram feeds, as well as the store’s animal print collection. Remember seeing this animal print dress all over your Instagram feed? Yup, us too…

And if you’re a staunch fan of animal print but didn’t manage to get your hands on the cult dress last season, we come bearing good news. The high street giant’s latest leopard incarnation? The £49 Leather Lace-up Trainers.

The brand took to Instagram to share a snap of the shoes with the caption: “Stop what you are doing immediately. Our sell-out leopard print lace up trainers have been restocked online and are available to buy now! If it’s anything like last time they won’t hang around.”

And they were right. The trainers have already sold out in every single size except for size 3.

So why are they in such high demand? As M&S’ Style Editor explains: “There are numerous reasons I’m grateful for the fact trainers are currently en vogue. Firstly: comfort. While I’m happy to brave vertiginous heels or bafflingly strappy sandals when the outfit calls for it, my feet aren’t always so thrilled by the end of the day. No such problem with trainers.

“Secondly, I love the way a good pair of trainers takes the ‘try hard’ out of any outfit, while still injecting a dash of cool into the overall look. A floral maxi dress and court shoes? Bit much for weekend brunch. The same dress with trainers? Perfect. And when they look this good, it almost doesn’t matter what else you wear, because everyone will be staring approvingly at your feet. Unfortunately this leopard-print pair jumped off the shelves but you can still get them in a cool black or white mix.”

Keep an eye on the brand’s Instagram page to check if they’ve had more stock. Step to it!
