I can understand why people wear trainers, I don’t personally have any and I don’t like them, but they’re comfortable and if you’re not over-bothered about fashion or you’re a trainer type of guy then no worries, I have no problem with you! However…
If you’re the type of girl (or god forbid a guy) who’s rocking a Ralph Lauren polo shirt and your hair is tipped bouffantly over to one side, please remove those overpriced mounds of sheepskin from around your ankles. You’re walking like a gimp!
Now, that may be because you’re ‘just thrown own’ jeans are far too tight for you or because you’re walking on a 1inch, £200 lump of cardboard tattooed with the word Ugg on the heel. They’re called Ugg’s because they’re Uggly and why they were invented in Australia I’ll never know.
Luckily for the Australians us Brits are more than willing to buy overpriced, unwanted goods from afar and then ship them over hear so we can all drag our feet, trip over dust particles and look successfully nonchalant.
And on the opposite end of the footwear faux pas spectrum is the ballet pump. Another ‘wear with anything’, overpriced, overproduced pile of useless crap that is no more of a shoe than a piece of cardboard is.
If you want to spend £100 on a pair of ballet pumps, look like everyone else, be constantly cold and get knee and back problems from shuffling around in a pair of shoes with soles the width of silk then be my guest, but I wont be!
I love my gladiator sandals but I fear they may be next on the overproduced, overdone list L
