Starting your own business involves a lot of passion, a LOT of hard work and a decent amount of sacrifice. This requires that you refrain from casually browsing the internet for things you don’t really need like, say, trainers. In order to make the sacrifice feel less like a sacrifice, it’s best to avoid temptation. That’d be the wise thing to do. I’m clearly not a wise woman as I found myself ‘taking a break’ last night and casually having a lil glance to see what was new at my favourite sneaker haunts. Next thing I know, I’ve lost an hour of my life I'm never getting back and I'm trying to convince my mates they need to buy the trainers I want but can’t currently justify.
You know my policy on sharing. So, having made a mental list of my current faves rather than waste it I’ll just leave it here in case, y’know you fancy having a look….
Nike Air Max 1 in GOLD(!!)
Why wouldn’t you? Gold kicks that you can customise? This is a no brainer. If you don’t you’ll only regret it. Think how well these will jazz up a pair of black jeans. People will be dazzled by your feet and move out of your path when they see you coming. I love a gold kick so much I wore them on my wedding day and non-stop for a week after that (see picture at top of post) and have two in this post alone.
Nike Women’s Air Max 1 Pinnacle
Two Air Max 1’s on one list? Yes, two. If you’re not getting the gold you should be getting these. In fact, I am telling you to because I can’t and one of us needs to have these. Don’t even get me started on my love of a gum sole. GUM SOLE. This is your must-have Autumn kick right here.
Reebok NPC ‘United Arrows & Sons’
These are nice. Very nice. They’ll go with everything and even if some unthinking stranger ends up throwing a pint of skinny flat white over them, it won’t ruin these gems #kicksforlife
Asics Gel-Lyte V Moonbeam/Light grey
My love of this shoe grows by the day and I think you should make space in your heart for the GLV too. They’re seriously comfy and I love the silhouette aka they look NICE on and once you start wearing them it’s for life. Ignore that this colour appears on the surface to be highly impractical, especially for us mums, that’s what Crep Protect is for!
Adidas Originals Stan Smith Noble Metals
No brainer. Despite your eyes tearing up at THAT price for a pair of Stan Smith's, there’s nothing to think about here, you need these. You will wear these. End of story.
