Seven Feet Apart 15% saving code
The Original 172 in hot coral, £125 (sevenfeetapart.com)
If you haven’t heard me going on about how great I think Seven Feet Apart trainers are, where have you been hiding?! I wrote about this fantastic brand when it launched earlier this year (you can read that here) and they’ve just brought out some new colours, including this snazzy hot coral suede.
The Original 172 in white/red, £125 (sevenfeetapart.com)
I’ve lived in my white pair – I actually wore nothing else at Milan Fashion Week as a little experiment – and I absolutely love them. As well as looking amazing, they are incredibly comfortable and just get better the more you wear them. So if you fancy a pair for yourself, you’ve got until November 10th to use my exclusive 15% saving code. Simply add EnBrogue_15 at the checkout on the purchase of any full-price trainers. Happy shopping!

Ever fancied making your own shoes?
This week I found out about a fantastic initiative run by a store called Aerende. All of its products are produced by people in the UK who are facing social challenges. Although it sells mostly interiors products (you can have a look at those here), it stocks espadrilles from a brand called Juta Shoes, who provide training and jobs for women in London who are low-waged or underprivileged. Next week, Aerende is giving people the opportunity to make some Juta slippers for themselves. Using reclaimed leathers, you’ll learn how to stitch your slides together and will leave with a pair of your own.
The workshop takes place on Friday November 3rd from 10am to midday, in Aerende’s pop up store at 7 Park Street, in London’s Borough Market. It’s £45, and you can book your place here.
Some more good news from Good News
Speaking of brilliant initiatives, the lovely people at Good News London have teamed up with some friends to create Good Luck Shoes. Their plan is to send shoes to refugees in Europe who arrive on our continent with nothing to wear on their feet. So far, they have already donated 525 pairs of new shoes have started an appeal to raise £1,000 to ship them to a cooperative that runs six immigration centres in Italy. If you would like to help, for £2 you can gift someone a pair of shoes and send a refugee a good luck message. Head to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
