Relaxed.

Friday, 27 December 2013

I've finally managed to get sucked into the trainer trend, and for two reasons. Firstly because my beloved Vans kicked the bucket (The holes in them have become too much to bear and they smell horrible) and secondly because weirdly enough, you can actually dress trainers up so it seems. I strongly disliked trainers for a while because of the whole Lily-Allen-Dress-And-Trainers circa early 2000 stigma I had attached to them, but it seems i'm eating my words because I am irrevocably in love. 

Surfdome were kind enough to send me a new pair of kicks just in time for Christmas, and apart from the relaxed style, the Reebok Sprintsation's are stupendously comfy and it makes a nice change from the stiffness of my usual Converses and Vans (Surfdome also have other Reebok trainers available here if you want to take a peek). I wore these all morning, afternoon and night on boxing day without socks and I didn't feel anything in my metatarsal region, plus they were so easy to slip on and off in between trying on sale shoes. Absolute bliss, considering I was running around central London fighting my way through the Boxing day sales.. Speaking of which, I have a funny story to tell but i'll save that for another post.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I'm still reeling from one to many Yorkshire Puddings and i'm spending my free time browsing sales and preparing myself for the new year!
