Even though all sports shoes are on the up (because working out has never been more popular – thanks Team GB) it’s the non-practical ones that are flooding the high street with their constant appearance.
We don’t mean impractical in the Lady Gaga footwear sense – the world isn’t quite ready for those sky-scrapers just yet – we just mean that fashionistas are opting to pair their skinny jeans, flirty skirts and cute shorts with lace-up trainers instead of the traditional pumps, wedges and even high-heeled stilettos that they previously favoured. This might also have something to do with Brit model-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne, who always opts for comfortable clothing and footwear when she’s off-duty.
With that in mind, we urge you to check out these fierce and fabulous studded Erratik lace up trainers from Wildpair.com. If you’re going to buy one thing this lunchtime (as well as your actual lunch and the new issue of Marie Claire obviously) let it be these monochrome beauties. You’ll get a lot of use out of them and can pair them with virtually everything apart from your elegant evening wear. Heck you can even wear them underneath a posh gown if you’re channelling Kristen Stewart. We’re all about the attention to detail, which is why we love the side zip and stud features on these shoes – they only make us love and crave them more!
