Treasured Trainers

About 4 or 5 years ago, I would be the first person to be immediately hostile towards trainers worn for any other reason that sport. I couldn’t be more irritated by trainers and jeans worn together. Today, everything’s a little different – although I still struggle to accept a pair of trainers such as the Air Max put together with a midi skirt or longer dress, but there’s time for it to grow on me. Trainers with jeans were really popular when I was younger and I just couldn’t stand it, especially white trainers with dark jeans, that look would aggravate me. Today I try to experiment more with my wardrobe, which means going out of my comfort zone, even if it’s just baby steps. I’ve owned Nike trainers for a while, Nike is usually my go-to brand for sportswear, even if do pronounce it wrong. I’ve found that they have a wider variety of shoes, including the ridiculously popular Nike Roshe Run shoes which are worn by a large amount of people. I chose these darker pair of trainers which I actually picked up from the Nike section in Sports Direct (a sports store which sells items for the most amazing prices I’ve ever seen). I paired the navy shoes with jeans of a similar colour, and chose to go for super skinny jeans because I think they suit this type of shoe best. Because the design of the shoe is quite sleek and slim, baggier and wider fitter jeans wouldn’t look as great. On top, I’m wearing a white, knitted 3/4 length jumper which also brings out the white in my trainers and brightens up the whole outfit. To finish the look I’m carrying my favourite oversized bag.
