I have a weird sense of pride when i talk about trainers. Back in the day when we were still 13 in year 8/9 and had an almost chavvy element to our dressing, alot of my(girl) friends wore trainers. Nikes, adidas, take your pick, they wore them. By that time though, I had grown out of the trainer stage by (excluding a pair of converse-style Replays which i ended up selling on ebay). I guess it's the myth in my mind that trainers=chavvy and just don't suit me anyway. But for the chavvy assumption, i'm definitely wrong.
But lately I've been looking at the classic white Keds Champions sneakers and thinking, could i? Would i? I've grown to almost love their simple style, how they can be made tough with a bit of leather and girlier with a floral dress. I'd love to wear them with (hopefully) tanned legs.
The thing is, going back to trainers is unfamiliar territory for me, and the trainer snob in me is screaming 'no!!!'. I'm looking for a delicate looking pair of canvas plimsoll style, so these fit the 'criteria'.
So what do you think? Do you recommend Keds?
The worry I have is that they'll just look mis-fitting on me, but what do you think?
Only honest answers! I love constructive criticism. ;)
