Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, we fantasise about being adorned with it. The next best thing to diamonds, are SHOES (sung in an opera voice). One of the greatest pleasures in life is the boost of confidence you feel and the compliments you receive, when you wear a new pair of shoes or trainers.
As girls our love for shoes starts pretty young, the pretty sparkly and pink girl shoes only to be worn on special occasions, those little girl shoes for school with bows or trainers with flashing lights on them. That nostalgia feeling of reliability, feeling special and being one of the coolest kids because you are on trend, puts that little skip in your step. It can be suggested, that this is the rationale as to why we have grown into “Shoe-crazy” “happy feet” adults
In the past few years, trainers which are available at wynsors have been deemed to be only appropriate for either the gym or for super casual scenarios, such as a quick trip to the corner shop or walking the dog. Bought during or after the Christmas period, when we have sworn to burn of every Yorkshire Pudding or turkey we have eaten and to have a healthy, fit new year. To add to our self-conviction, we join gyms and buy a new pair of trainers. The trainers gather dust after a month or two, because we conveniently get too busy…life ay. The point is, trainers have not been considered a fashion accessory, a fashion statement or a fashion anything. This of course is aimed at the ladies, as we have a wide variety of shoe styles to wear, unlike men whose choices are unfortunately limited, but have amazing fashionable trainers to wear.
In the year 2012, we have seen great fashion statements and one of them being trainers. Fashion retailers such as River Island, Top Shop and Wynsors are selling great stylish trainers. The likes of Kim Kardashian and Made In Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh have caught onto the trend and have been spotted wearing a pair or two, assuring us that 2013, is the year of trainers. Trainers have fast become that fashion statement everyone needs, that comfortable yet edgy pair shoes every girl yearns for. Sporty is stylish, and is now part of the everyday wardrobe, whether shopping, socialising or even working.
Fashionable trendy shoes and trainers are available in all sizes, in most retail stores, at great prices. Women’s shoes such as flat canvas pumps available at wynsors and trainers are available in little girl shoe sizes, generating an army of people with “happy feet’s” and little girls feeling special in their shoes.
