I put some new shoes on & suddenly everything is right


Hello there! Last week I was taking a bit of a browse at shoes on SportsDirect.com, I didn't really intend on buying a pair... until I saw these bad boys! To be completely honest, it wasn't the actual style of the shoe that made me want them, it was the colour (as sad as that sounds!)I’m a real sucker for pastel colours & this pastel blue (almost duck egg blue) had me sold! The best thing was however, the fact that they were reduced from £29.99 to £17.99 (what a bargain!!)! Unfortunately, I can't find them on the website to link them!


So, the shoes are suede and so soft – amazing! The design is pretty plain which means they’ll practically go with anything, but as you can probably tell from the above photos I’ll more likely be wearing them on days when I feel a little casual! I guess you could probably wear them with a bright dress if you wanted to tone it down a little during the day and keep it comfy! They’re lace up, but for some reason I think they look better with the laces tucked in (but that's just me!), they're super comfortable and so soft on the inside, so your feet aren't going to blister (woo!)! I'm not usually one for wearing trainers, but I love these! What do you think?



Also, I'll leave you with some shoe related songs that you can check out if ya feel like it!

  7. Your shoes are the perfect example of comfy meets beauty- its really hard to find trainers that meet both categories and you've won the jackpot. Love the colors! Any type of blue is my favorite color, and this one is such a gorgeous shade.

  9. Oh, they are so lovely! I'm sure you will have a good time wearing them and your feet aren't going to hurt even after walking long distances :) Nothing is as comfortable as trainers - that's a fact. And I fell in love with this colour too, very nice

    P.S. you've got a great music taste ;)
