My Love Affair With Trainers

Can we just take a minute to appreciate how beautiful the weather has been (on and off) recently? What better weather to shoot my new love for trainers than in the Spring sunshine?

I first dipped my toe into the trainers ocean with a pair of all white Adidas Superstars. I’d been eyeing up the superstars for a while but with my clown sized feet I thought trainers would look far too manly on me. Turns out, they look pretty damn great, I have to say, I’m in love. I wear them all the time and they don’t look scruffy or chavvy – words I’ve used to describe trainers in the past.

Within a week I was holding another pair of trainers in my hands. . what had become of me?! I’ve caught the trainer bug guys. Loving these pale grey Nike ones I got from Asos, they’re a very different shape to the superstars but I love them equally.

    I love trainers. I started wearing them a lot more often about 2 years ago and haven’t stopped since. Love the neutral colour of the ones you’re wearing.

    I have a weird relationship with trainers – I love them but I always feel like they either make my feet look huge or they look too chavvy. This outfit is like perfect though, and those Air Max’s are sooo nice! I may invest…

    I love trainers.. I’ve worn converse for a couple of years now and I too own the plain white superstars, which, completely agree, are just amazing and so comfy and easy to style. 🙂
    Love these grey nikes.. I have some plain white nike air max’s, but I think they may be a bit too bulky for day to day wear..

      It’s hard to get used to them isn’t it! I think I want a pair of stan smiths next! The Raf Simmons ones are incredible!
