Trainer Love

December 6, 2013

The amount of trainers I own are definitely not in proportion to the time I spend exercising. I adore them though: I love how these days it’s acceptable to wear a lovely silk dress and slap on a pair of Nikes to dress it down a bit. I love how comfy they are on the school run (though obviously no literal running takes place) and I love the pop of colour they can bring to an outfit.


My newest loves: New Balance Running Shoe, £71.99

Trainers remind me of when I was at school and it was totally acceptable to strap on my Filas with my 90s high-rise stonewashed jeans to go and loiter outside New Look. I still remember my lilac platform pumps from Miss Selfridge with the fondest of memories: evidently I’ve always enjoyed wearing trainers until the cows come home.

As a fully paid-up sneaker fan I have a Pinterest board dedicated to my favourites and have a wishlist of ‘trainers I need in my life’:


Via Six Feet From The Edge


Via Alice & Sara

Starting with these Black Nike Free 5.0+. I love to see them with an all-black outfit or to chic up a pair of bright trousers (of which I have plenty); these are first on my list.


Via What I Bought Today 


Via The Frugality

Next up is a pair of grey Nikes with neon trim: similar are these Nike Free Bionic training shoes for £71.99.

For me, trainers MUST be worn with skinny jeans or leggings; I’ve recently been sent these confident curves leggings from Isme and they are amazing, they hold everything in and give a lovely silhouette. A bit of grey jersey and tailoring or leather on top and job’s a good’un.

    […] for me to steer away from what I like to term this ‘mumiform’. I have an obsession with bright trainers, which though comfy and functional allow me to show my personality via my feet. I try not to wear […]

    My Nike wedge hightops are practically glued to my feet. No school run running involved here either. xx

    An, love the ones with a dash of neon :)
    It’s hard to believe the reign of high tops could be over – if South London is anything to go by NB are the ONLY footwear to have :)

    LOVE this look and your new trainers! Can you tell me more about those Isme leggings please? The only leggings I’ve ever bought are rubbish. Are the Isme ones amazing? x

      They really are amazing! I thought, how good can leggings be? But these are super comfy and hold everything in wonderfully x
