The last time I wore a pair of trainers during the day was circa 2000 when it was the "in thing" to team Adidas judo trainers with your Maharishi's. Now that is a trend I look back on with great affection. Fast forward ten plus years and the fashionista's footwear of choice, New Balance.
I have toyed with the idea of getting a pair for months now, constantly telling myself that I was too old for such a trend and to stick with what I know suits me best, ankle boots, ballet pumps etc but blogger images got me all "parisian chic" with their trench and peacoats, skinny jeans and trainers until I eventually convinced myself that there are enough batty old women in the world wearing sports shoes on a daily basis, so what difference would one more make?
Then my size came back in stock in one of my preferred colour ways and the deal was done.
Mine are the 420 style in navy and I have to confess it's been an awful long time since I have worn anything so comfortable. Lots of people have asked about sizing, I took my usual size with no problem.
Frugal February is still in full swing, these were bought in January!
