Sneakers. They’re a pretty basic, essential footwear item, right? Not for me they weren’t. In the past I’ve been notoriously allergic to exercise and one great way to get out of it was to not own any appropriate footwear. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a pair of runners in my cupboard on and off since my school years but they rarely saw sunlight. That all changed late last year when I underwent a forefoot reconstruction. As a result it has forced me into wearing sneakers regularly. The healing process is a good 12months and in that time it’s recommended to wear runners, sneakers or any shoe that isn’t too tight or form fitting. My poor, sad collection of heels have been locked away this year but luckily sneakers are so acceptable as fashion footwear these days because I’ve been able to get away with wearing them to some pretty unconventional places.
Barely 3 months in to my recovery I felt a new monster rise within. A sneaker obsessed monster. Now I fear I may never wear heels again! Who can blame me, checkout some of the amazing footwear that you’ll never regret wearing on a night out.
