I need some. That is all.
Seriously though trainers have come through trumps recently and its now acceptable to achieve a look that isn't just about bragging having just stepped out of the gym a la Kim Kardashian. The thing is the choice of colour, design and brands is immense and I don't do choice well.
With my Converse I kept it simple-White vs Navy - Boot vs Shoe.
I know the look I want. The I've dressed nicely but I didn't try too hard look. I may have some gold in my outfit or a funky necklace, but I just casually threw on my trainers. (Not sure I own any gold clothing right now but you get the point)
I've been reliably informed by my husband that the Wedge style is a no go for me. He laughed and made that disgusted face whilst I tried a style on doing my best "I can make these look sexy to you" walk.
I broke a little inside of course, I thought they made my bum look great. When I showed him a amazing pair of ASH boots better than half price that made me want to lick my laptop screen, he "almost" liked them but put doubt in my head.
-They are Suede Hollie (so?!)
-Will you wear them when it starts getting warmer? (I would sweat it out)
-They are that price for a reason, something better is coming. (Yeah Yeah)
-Will they be 'out' of fashion next month? (ermmm)
Doubt-Oh how I hate doubt. It plagues most of my choices in life.
The pair of Trainers that I see myself in and have been hankering for are the Nike Blazers. I like the red, I don't know why as I have always disliked the colour red. However it seems to be slowly creeping its way in my wardrobe like poison ivy.
Will red go with most outfits though? I doubt it will but I can sure as hell give it a go!
Or do I forget the Nike Blazers and go for Nike Air Max? I so wanted to be down with the cool kids when I was a child and I had no idea that the money tree in my mums garden was not real. I was desperate to have some alongside those Adidas leggings that everyone was wearing (or so it felt like). Do I finally get my childhood wish instead? They could probably provide more comfort but do you put comfort over fashion?
