My High Heels Collection

Since my teenage years I have always really loved the look of high heels, however since then my tastes have changed dramatically and while I still love heels, I will no longer buy ones that are horrendously painful just because they look amazing They have to be reasonably comfortable and where possible I will buy ‘wide fit’ to save my little toes from the horrendous blisters they are prone to. Having this mindset also helps me save money, as well as keeping my feet happy (not that I get the chance to wear heels often)! Any shoes that make my feet cry are currently being put on or have been sold on eBay – bye-bye, you will hurt me no more! (Edit: some of these shoes have now been sold too after a further clear out).

I thought I would share my remaining collection with you today and link the ones that are still currently available. 🙂 I hope you enjoy having a nosey into my shoe-drobe. If you like this post you might also like to take a look at My Boots Collection!

My Boots Collection

As it’s now Autumn and Winter will be upon us in no time I thought I’d share all the boots I currently own! Boots are the Winter footwear of choice (although trainers are always a winner too) so it felt like a good time to show them, as well as being good for me to see what I already own so I know what I can add to the collection this year. 😉

Of course most of these boots are old from past years so it’s unlikely they’ll still be available but I’ll try my best to find something similar. Most of these are casual but there are a couple of pairs that I would probably reserve for dressier occasions.

So there we have it. All the boots I own. I don’t wear all of them enough tbh so I’ll try and wear them more this Winter, and if I don’t I guess I might as well get rid of some next Spring. I would like to add a new pair of flat black boots, something classy and smart but comfortable. I also really would love a leopard print pair, I’m eyeing up these from Next (£60) and might ask for them for Christmas or my birthday. 🙂

Comfiest Shoes Ever: Nike Juvenate

Trainers have not traditionally been the most ‘fashionable’ of shoes however over the past year or so trainers have become rather on trend. This can surely only be a good thing for everyone, those who love trainers can rejoice in them being ‘in’ and everyone can go about their lives in a delightful degree of comfort. However, not all trainers I’ve ever worn have been comfortable. Many still give you the same blisters and wear-in time as other types of shoe meaning this major perceived ‘pro’ of trainers is redundant. These Nike bad boys however, are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn. I struggled and still do struggle to stop myself wearing them every time I leave the house. They might look pretty good for trainers but they still don’t go with everything so I do have to stop myself.

I only found out about them because my sister had a pair she got last year. She wore them all the time so one day when I just saw them lying around I decided to try one on and immediately I wanted my own pair! I wasn’t always sure about the style and look of them at first, however, they had grown on me and once I’d felt the squishy sole and stretchy upper I was sold.

They are a sock style trainer that you just pull and slip on. Basically, the laces don’t really serve a purpose other than for show but they can help keep the shoe more secure if you tie them tightly. The upper is a flexible mesh which is amazing for someone like me who always gets blisters on their little toes. As it’s so stretchy there’s nothing to make my foot cramped enough to develop blisters. It is breathable which also helps prevent blisters and keeps your feet cool. The sole is so squishy and cushioned it’s like walking on foam, or even a cloud if I may be dramatic. They are also really lightweight which feels so nice, it really makes you realise how heavy a lot of shoes are so it is freeing to wear something so light!

Due to the mesh upper they are not waterproof at all, so this is something to be aware of. They are not something you can throw on on a rainy day! I just wear them for casual day to day outings and walks so I don’t know if they would be a good gym or running shoe – I don’t go to the gym or run. xD I did climb a Welsh mountain in them though and they were great!

From what I saw when I was researching which ones to buy, Juvenates come in quite a few colours and designs. I went for grey as it’s super versatile and less stark than black or white. I bought mine at Zalando with a substantial discount. The RRP for these trainers seems to be £72, however, if you’re savvy and shop around you’re bound to be able to get a saving on that.

That concludes this more unusual post, a ‘shoe review’ if you will. But I just had to share these as I think everyone should experience this comfort! They may not be to everyone’s taste aesthetically, but I challenge anyone to say they’re not very comfortable!
