When I was younger I use to love trainers but then I grew up out of that phase and didn’t own trainers (other than a running pair) for years. I relied on my trusty Converse until I began to see people start to wear trainers with smart coats. I was in two minds about ordering these, I knew I wanted them but would I actually wear them?
I got these on the ASOS sale for about £50-60 but once I used my student discount and vouchers I paid nearly nothing and I just couldn’t resist!
Recently I have just been struggling to wear anything else; they’re comfortable, warmer than my Converse and I can even wear them with my favourite smart coat. I am now eyeing up some more colours or even a pair of New Balance’s and wondering how I have fallen in love with trainers. Everyone seems as surprised as I am, even my little cousin asked me why I am wearing boys shoes, not because they are boy shoes but just because they are far more like boy shoes than what he is use to seeing me in.
I do struggle a little to make them look a little smarter (don’t worry I don’t ever wear them with tracksuits and t-shirt, promise!) but I usually pair them with my favourite GAP jeans, a nice jumper (this one is from Zara) and I chose this time to wear my favourite Superdry Timothy Everest Town Coat and my trusty Zara City Bag.
Talking of bags I am on the hunt for a new one but I just can’t find the perfect one. I hate going to look for them, instead I just always buy a bag when I find one I love but I haven’t fallen for any since the Zara City Bag and that was about a year ago!
I’ll keep you all updated on whether I end up caving and buying another pair of trainers, if I find the perfect pair I don’t think I will be able to resist!
Do you wear trainers? What do you think of wearing them with smarter coats?
