Alicia Keys loves her Reebok collaboration so much she would wear the shoes "every day".

The star is a big fan of the casual footwear and teamed up with Reebok for a second collaboration recently, updating classic model the Reebok Freestyle.

Despite adding a wedge to the design, Alicia insists she would wear the shoes 24/7.

“I want to wear them every day, not just because they’re mine, [but] because they look great and because they’re comfortable," she smiled to People at the launch event.

The star looked cute and relaxed in a colourful T-shirt teamed with bright green jeans and her new kicks.

Her Reebok Classic X Alicia Keys collection takes the comfort of trainers and gives them an edge thanks to the in-built heel.

Since giving birth to her son Egypt with husband Swizz Beatz, practical fashion has rated highly with the 32-year-old.

“Evolving and becoming a woman has really changed my style,” she explained.

“Style should be comfortable. You should feel great [when you] put it on – although some shoes I wear are not very comfortable. But my sneakers are!”

However, the Girl on Fire singer still likes to look fashionable for special occasions.

She named flowy, silky pants from the likes of Stella McCartney and Chloé her fashion must-have as well as bright items with an "androgynous feel".

She describes her Reebok sneakers as "boy-girly" and they will be available on the brand's website from April 1.
