Wimbledon sneakers just got sweet
I’m not going to harp on about the Stan Smith again this Wimbledon season (although if you are interested in its history and that of tennis shoes in general, you can read all about it here) but that’s not to say that there aren’t some tennis-inspired kicks to tell you about this week.
Onitsuka Tiger GSM x Naked in cotton candy, £90 (pampamlondon.com)
Onitsuka Tiger has released its GMS style – which topically happens to stand for Game, Set and Match – in a sugary pink and white stripe in a collaboration with Naked. How strawberries and cream appropriate!
Three of the best…designer sandals that were dead expensive but are now in the SALE!
The sales have started! And while you can obvs pick up a total bargain in Zara, it’s also a great time to hunt down those designer styles you were lusting after months ago and see if they’ve had a ridiculous reduction. These sandals are amazing but there aren’t many sizes left, so hurry if you want to pick up a real steal! Or if your size has been snapped up, it’s a great time to browse these high end websites for stuff you would never usually be able to afford.
Brother Vellies ribbon sandals, £77 reduced from £255 (net-a-porter.com); Salome pom pom sandals, £115 reduced from £230 (matchesfashion.com); Avec Moderation raffia slides, £165 reduced from £325 (boutique1.com)
On my radar: Inch 2
‘Milkshake’ low top leather sneakers, €240 (inch2.com)
‘Ice Cream’ leather high tops, €250 (inch2.com)
One of you lovely lot on Instagram alerted me to the existence of Inch 2, a brilliantly vibrant shoe brand from Latvia. I highly recommend following them for delicious shots of their ice-cream coloured shoes – it’s a delight! I’m particularly taken with the block colour sneakers because they are so much fun, but there is also a really good selection of more traditional brogues and boots. All prices on the website are in Euros but it looks like they do ship FOR FREE to the UK (I have emailed them to check – will update this when they reply!).
