FullSizeRender-3…These Nike Huaraches are aaa-mazzz-iiinng! I never thought I’d be so pro trainers but these days I’m opting for the comfort of a good pair of kicks on a night out, rather than arch aching killer heels. Do not get me wrong, I will forever be obsessed with fabulous shoes; especially when it comes to a pair of designer heels that I’ve been eyeing up for months, while I save/ spontenous splurge; however you simple can not go wrong with practicality and comfy reliable footware. Plus, these particular trainers are gorgeous! Yes I said it! They are amazing; the colour, suede mix, style, petite little size…you name it; the perfect pair of Huaraches! #WishList

Some say  “tamato” and others say tomato.

Plenty say trainers and even more say sneakers…

Most say Adidas, yet others say “Adeedas”.

But whatever twang, dialect, accent or language someone speaks, we all know what is being said (well sometimes). With Nike remaining in the limelight, other sports brands make a Comeback, whilst Adidas host a “Throwback”!

Showcased at the Hoxton Gallery; in the heart of East London; the brand with 3 stripes surly showed its age; with over 600 different pairs of vintage, deadstock , re-issues and collaboration style trainers. (Most to which are owned by one man-and I thought I was a hoarder!) Whether its walk, jog or run; the exhibition was definitely a step back into history- History that I didn’t even know existed. Some of the trainers on display only dated back 10 years or so; however, many were creations from the 90s, 80s, 70s…

For all my fellow fashionistas, footwear lovers, trainer freaks, sneakerheads, avid sporty people and the curious passerbyers; if you do get a chance or happen to be in the area, go and have a look. The space is quite small, nevertheless it’s a space filled with character, colour, culture and lets not forget…cabinets!  And whats more, it was rather interesting to browse through and worth popping into.
