A bit battered now, but they serve their purpose. These trainers are now my gym shoes.. before that they were actually my going out trainers and I’d where them for comfort. I always find trainers are a bit like t-shirts- when they’re new you wear them on special occasions, you know, the sort of thing you get your expensive perfume out for. Then the dynamic changes and you end up wearing this said t-shirt to bed.
Last week I went on a run with my doggy. It had rained the night before and I really tried my best to avoid the mud, but I felt so bad keeping to the “boring” areas for my doggy’s sake. I then proceeded to run the farmer’s fields; gosh I nearly slipped over, and I could hardly run.. But it was fun. The trainers… well they were a squelchy mess! They had to go in the washing machine (Delicates wash on 30 with a tad of detergent if you’re asking!)
I get most of my trainers from JD Sports as they have a good selection and always seem to have special offers. Also they do quite a few men’s/unisex/whatever trainers from 6-9 (a lot of “men’s” sizes start at 7).
So these are my first handmade shoes: made in Wales! My friend Molly lives in Pembrokeshire and told me about this wonderful company who are local to her… They create these amazing boots in all different colours. Also, because they make them from scratch I only had to buy one pair! Winning!
They are so comfortable, think leggings, cosy cardigan and snuggled by the fire vibes. Although I could’ve gone for funky colour, I had my practical hat on, which often I find takes over, as buying shoes is a bit more tricky for me than it is for others so it’s all about making an investment.
These are SO comfortable and stylish! When I buy from Simply Be, I get wide fit size 6 for my left foot and an extra wide size 9 for my right. Sometimes the wide fit is a bit too wide for my little foot, so I wear an extra sock on that side. I have had lots of comments about these shoes; the pattern is gorgeous and reminds me of William Morris: very opulent colours of teal, pink and gold. I am careful where I wear these booties- they will NOT become work shoes! They’re my fancy boots.
What the Adidas trainers and Simply Be boots actually look like 🙂 I can’t find any of me in my sheepskin boots, but if I do I will add!
Thanks for reading, have a glorious weekend!
