Trends Hot List: Father’s day special

Superstar trainers, here we go…

Adidas’s iconic ’70s basketball shoe, the Superstar, turns 50 this year. To celebrate the brand has pimped the shoe’s shell-toe, which now features a cross-hatch texture (main picture). Available in four monochrome colourways — all black; all white; black with white detailing; and white with black detailing — the updated Superstar is a wardrobe staple. £79.95, adidas.co.uk

Bubbly personality

Boost your father’s bath time with a stress-busting bath soak from the handmade London brand Soapsmith. Camden features Dead Sea salt, coconut milk powder and essential oils, including bergamot. £25, soapsmith.com

Massage gun empowers muscles after exercise

More of us are exercising at home but fewer of us are able to go to see the physio or get a massage to sort out any sore bits. That’s where Power Plate’s targeted massage gun comes in. Powerful yet quiet, it uses vibration technology to increase blood flow to those aching muscles and fascia. £299, powerplate.com
