I’m still trying to figure out if it’s a blessing or a curse that trainers have become a trend. It’s a blessing in the sense that? well, must I explain? It’s pretty much a given that they’re comfortable, uncomplicated and offer endless options.?What’s not to like? Except now I find they’re all I want to wear. With every outfit. To every occasion. Every. Single. Day.
For a girl who isn’t remotely athletic, I own an awful lot of trainers, and I know I’m?not alone in this. It means a lot of spending, a lot of wardrobe space, and a lot of time spent obsessing over the latest pair of trainers to have hit the shelves. I just can’t stop. It’s an addiction. And thanks to my?obsession, the spring I have in my step is no longer metaphorical, thanks to my?new adidas INIKI and their boost sole.
