Fresh Pair of Kicks: The Hottest Trainers to Buy Now and Pay Later

Blog | 19th Oct 2022 | 4min read

Trainers are the all-important finishing touch for any fashionable fit. Whether you’re going for style, comfort, or both — Zilch buy now, pay later can help you bag the latest drop before they fly off the shelves.

We’re proud to be one of the UK’s premier buy now, pay later providers — so you can pay just 25% of the upfront price and split what’s left into 3 further instalments, spread over 6 weeks, with Zero interest at selected retailers.

How it Works:

To purchase your first pair, you’ll need to grab our app off of the App Store or Google Play and make an account with us. Then, select the online retailer you want, or if you prefer to shop your shoes in-person, enable your card for a physical store of your choice. You can shop at any retailer that accepts Mastercard payments.

Before you start sole searching, you’ll next need to agree to our credit agreement. With Zilch, you pay the first 25% of the cost upfront, followed by the next three instalments spread over a six-week window. Or, you can Pay in 1, and earn up to 2% of your purchase back in Zilch rewards. And if you need a little more time, you can always choose to Snooze for an extra four days to make the payment.

We support plenty of your favourite UK shoe shops — even the big brand names like Adidas — so we have no doubt that you’ll find something you love. But if you can’t find your favourite footwear store on our app or website, you can pay a small fee to use Zilch Anywhere, pay the upfront 25%, then spread the cost.

As always, we’re fully transparent — if we charge an extra fee for your selected retailer, we’ll tell you before checkout.

Split the Cost on Trainer Styles for Every Occasion –

The Wardrobe Staples

The classics will never go out of style. Over the years, the top brands have perfected their flagship ‘sneaks and we’ve been stocking up our shoe racks since. But when your old Stan Smiths or Superstars are looking a bit too beaten-up to hit the town, it might be time for a replacement order. Zilch has you covered — buy now, pay later on trainers and spread the cost over six weeks.

The Runner’s Choices

The right running shoe is a more than worthy investment to keep your joints and muscles in robust condition. There are lots of top brands that provide support and long-wear for your runs, from Hoka’s Clifton range to New Balance’s Fresh Foams. To get the perfect fit, you might be best visiting a retailer in-person and trying on a few pairs — but that’s no problem, as Zilch lets you buy now and pay later on shoes in physical stores.

The Street Casual Look

Every year we watch as superstar models descend on the runways of New York, London, Paris and Milan for fashion week — and in between shows, they style it out in their chicest streetwear. Iconic options like Air Force 1s and Yeezys are popular choices for an ultra-modern aesthetic. But even if you’re not stomping the runway, you can dress like you are — Zilch lets you Pay in 4 to split your trainer costs into instalments, or earn Zilch Rewards back on those splurges with Pay in 1.

The Gym Essentials

For when function is just as important as form, you’ll need some hard-wearing, HIIT-worthy gym trainers. SuperReps and Reebok’s Nanoflex series will do the job, combining breathable materials with layers of cushioning in a practical, sleek shell. And there’s no reason to wait — with Zilch, you can buy now and pay later on all your workout-wear — so you have no excuse to skip leg day this week.
