The closest I will get to a marathon is the trainer.
The moment has passed; with some nostalgia, my running days are over. I did love running and pounded the pavements for my fair share but the time has come to preserve the knees and stick with other practices. Change is a wonderful thing so I have no problem with that.
What hasn’t changed is my love of a good trainer. I am happy to find the most comfortable of shoes as a hot fashion item. The powers that be are showing us the sports style trainer with every type of outfit – from the very casual to the quite dressy.
Sneakers and trainers have been a staple in my fashion wardrobe for some time and if it is considered the mode to wear them with the most unlikely of outfits, I am going to. I won’t be wearing the tracksuit and money belt look outside anytime soon, but I will be wearing a skirt, sweater and a pair of trainers often. Or a dress and leather jacket combined with a white or even a coloured pair.
I like Nikes right now.
As much as the designer gang are creating wonderful combinations and styles I am too mean to pay extravagant prices for this type of footwear. The Nikes do the job every time and now they are playing along and showing very fun colour options available.
If the sneaker/trainer trend is new to your comfort zone, stay in classic colours – the white, grey or black options all gives the look we want. Ready to experiment; check out these beauties in green smoky silver. Imagine with all grey or even camel and grey?
Today it’s grey dress, white trainers and leather jacket later. Tomorrow I’m definitely outing the rose/crimson flash. xv
