Take a quick peek in my wardrobe and you will discover this: I love trainers. Since becoming a mum, it’s not that I’ve thrown my heels out, I just reserve them for dressy occasions, as running around after small children requires comfortable, practical footwear. However, this does not mean I have relegated myself to boring, ugly shoes, as my comfy flats still need to look good. I like to follow this simple guideline: Stylish But Practical. So my sneakers need to sparkle, my trainers need to be on trend and my flats have to be fabulous.
And so do my Shoe Zone red high top trainers. Their delicious lipstick-red hue brightens up my mummy uniform jeans-and-sweater combo a treat. They look far more expensive than their joyfully bargainous price, too, and when you can team comfort with style, what’s not to like? I’ve happily prammed around the park in them without any rubbing, and they are more than capable of a rough-and-tumble play date with a three-year-old, as well as being gorgeous enough for a lunch and shopping date with the girls.
They go with various styles of jeans, as well as leggings and printed trousers. I often feel the urge to team my lipstick or nail polish with them. Because, yes, I may be in my play-date comfies, but that doesn’t mean my standards have to slip, right?
