I finally got a pair of hi top wedge trainers just after Christmas, my heavy hints failed to turn into a Christmas present so I bought them myself for half price (before they sold out).
I have started with a subtle pair. All black with a slight wedge to give me a little extra height as well as making them good for casual days out, the office and, depending on the outfit, nights out.
And at £25 I feel they are the perfect entry-level hi top. A kind of gateway trainer to a whole collection, nay family of ultra comfy hi tops.
Yes, I now have a massive weakness. I see images of new shiny, pastel coloured, fawn coloured, Liberty print covered trainers and feel an urge to add another pair to my wardrobe.
Why the ones I already own are lonely I think. It would be mean not to give them another pair to sit with. My ballet pumps have created a gang that owns the best shoe storage areas. My boots hang around in dark corners and my hi tops feel a little left out.
So I am looking. Take a look at these beauties…
