Get your feet into these Pumped Up Kicks…
The colourful trainers have spread worldwide, adding a sporty edge to any outfit to keep you on trend for SS 12′.

On the top half, grey marl works perfectly. Remember the attention is on your feet so be sure to keep the rest casual. Hi-tops should always be dressed down with an ‘off-duty cool’ attitude.
A form of trainer is fast becoming the “it” shoe of the season. Unheard of, some might say. But I’m not complaining, for how often do looking stylish and feeling comfortable at the same time mix?

After careful consideration of how to wear the stunning Liberty Blazers, I reluctantly decided against them. For the practicality of everyday wear I opted for the simpler, classic Nike Blazers.

I bought them last week, have worn them every day since and have gained a lot of compliments, I could not recommend them any more.
