Trainers: Nike Stefan Janoski

I'm not normally one to dedicate a whole post to one item, but I like reading up on things in a little more detail sometimes, plus I've fallen in love with said item. A pair of trainers. I'm not a trainer person. Period. My first ever pair of trainers at age 11, were second hand from a friend of mine... who was a boy; I experimented with the usual converse and vans but outgrew them in my (very) late teens and that is pretty much my trainer history.

So what lead me to but a pair? Well, I went to Japan. My initial thought process was 'I'm going to be doing a lot of walking and don't want to run the risk of A)hurting my feet B) ruining my shoes.Yea, all my flat shoes are comfortable but not exactly made for wear and tear so I started looking around. I knew I wanted black or navy to go with anything in my wardrobe and I wanted to be able to wear it with jeans, and dresses.

I went with the Nike Stefan Janoski  as they were the simplest trainers there and seeing my needs were not too specific ie. I didn't need them for doing any actual sport so I settled on these ones. I didn't know how much I would love them until I started wearing them either and now I'm back from Japan they have creped into my autumn wardrobe with ease. I almost don't want them to get dirty as I used to hate shiny new converse, but the aim of keeping these clean with me is already gone.  I wear them with skirts, shorts, jeans pretty much anything :) Look out for them in my next outfit posts.
