One thing that surprises a lot of people when I tell them, is that I didn’t own a pair of trainers for about 9 years.
I mean, I had some in school for playing sports (not by choice, I can assure you) but I never wore them ‘casually’ or as a statement. For years I would walk around in brogues, boots or Converse. I could never imagine myself wearing Sneakers for anything other than to run in, until recently… I really liked the look of wearing New Balance with a suit, a huge part of the J.Crew ‘look’ – so, I spent a good two weeks trying to decide on what style and colour to go for. I ended up buying a grey suede pair and a navy pair. This was a huge leap into new territory for me and one that I found quite difficult!
