Commuting - lightweight quickdry trainers for the wet

So the wet has come to Wales, which isn't unusal, but it's a bit too early to give up the cycling just yet and i have to hit my 800mile commute mark.
I'm just wondering if anyone knows of some nice lightweight quickdrying trainers. I've thought about sandals but would prefer a layer between skin and road.

I bought some Lonsdale trainers from that Soccer World/Sports direct place (you know, the cheapo sports shop) a while ago and never really considered them for cycling until recently when I got a new bike and my usual trainers were catching on the chain stays. They seem to be pretty good, stiff, light, reasonable amount of grip but would be better with toe-clips, and plastic coated so they shed the rain. I think they were only about £15.
