Gimme Sneakers

Last year I bought my first pair of high top trainers from Jimmy Choo. I have showed you these before in a previous post here. From this day on I have been a fan of high tops. The star Jimmy Choos are really heavy and uncomfortable so I don’t wear them much. I then bought two pairs of Isabel Marant heeled sneakers which you have also seen before in a previous post (see image below). I love these but I am literally living in them. So I wanted to buy a new pair so these don’t get ruined or before I get bored of them.

I wanted to share with you the ones I found and the ones I bought. They took Four weeks to get to the UK as I ordered them from my fav website ‘Nasty Gal’. I still do not have them as they are sitting at the post office waiting for me to pay the evil customs charge. The charge I have is £208.59, yes I bought more than the sneakers!

The nude ones also come in white and cost $95 (£60.) Below you can see the designer version by Sandro. I have longed for these for a while but didn’t quite love them enough to spend £360 after the Marant ones I bought. They look very similar, no?

I also bought these bad boys. They are basically the casual version to my Jeffrey Campbell heeled boots with the spikes. These ones cost $215 (£135) also from Nasty Gal.

I am not crazy about sneakers, I don’t think I will ever wear them, no matter how cute

I think these are a case of love them or hate them. My feet need a break from killer heels sometimes.x

Ballerina flats are the best. I love Marc Jacobs mouse glitter ballerinas. So cute! Even though I hate mice, long story!

If real mice were covered in glitter, I might even get to like them 😉 And if they smelled with Chanel that would be great too 😉
