I’ve tried my fair share of trainers in the past. And pretty much all of them I’ve had to wear in.
The one exception to the rule, however, is Nike Air Max. My beloved ‘Thea’ trainers are covered in paint from house renovations so it was about time for an upgrade. And we all know I’ve been after some colour in my wardrobe lately…
I’m in no way exaggerating when I tell you these feel like gloves for your feet. Super light and you feel like you can run a marathon (which is pretty much what I do everyday rushing around on appointments like a mad woman, desperate to get on that tube before rush hour). They’re not the cheapest trainer on the market but the Nike Air Max 90 Ultra 2.0 Flyknit is the one (or you can shop the range at Nike).
I’m also embracing the colour pop and feeling very ‘Sporty Spice’. You might have noticed lately I have been wearing more and more brights. Not head to toe (yet), but a bit of ‘infra red’ to bring out my minimal classic pieces is working out well for me.
I’d never been one to match my shoes to my bag.
But lately I’ve been drawn towards ‘matchy matchy’ and it feels okay – the trainers have just that hint of neon so it lifts the navy. I do, however, love to mix fabrics and shapes – which is why I wore these with trousers and not jeans for this post – I love the opposites of smart, wool fabrics with sporty shapes.
Sizing-wise, if like me, you don’t wear socks (sorry mum!), I would probably size down in these half or even one as they’re so light. But as far as comfy trainers go, these are pushing their way right to the front of my shoe cabinet (as I still haven’t actually put my wardrobes up, yet).
