In Training?

I’m sure you can’t have failed to notice the trend for wearing trainers. What are your thoughts?

I have to say that while I do own a pair of converse (only ever worn with jeans or a casual dress or skirt) I really don’t like the look of proper trainers outside of a gym. It might be because I’m not the world’s most sporty person but I just think that with anything other than sports wear or jeans they just don’t do it for me.


Having said that I would wear a pair that look like they have no place in a gym! See bottom picture below, sparkly or animal print is a yes for me. I’m even considering a pair to take on holiday but you can be sure they won’t be gym appropriate.

These are a definite no for me:

The next lot are a maybe – including the skater shoe that’s a huge trend, but I would be concerned they would make my feet look huge.

And finally those I would wear – in fact the over the top gold sparkly and animal print could be the ones!

How about you is it a trend you will be wearing?
