…and the rest of this week’s Shoes News
Regular readers of this blog will know I am a HUGE fan of Rogue Matilda. The brand’s founder, Katie, has such a fantastic knack for knowing just the right amount of quirky without going OTT, and I don’t think I’ve ever worn a pair of her shoes out and not received a compliment (in fact, I wore some on This Morning last year and Eamonn Holmes loved them so much he said he was going to dig out his old golf shoes).

The new season has just gone on sale and it’s gorgeous. There are some variations on some of Katie’s classic Rogue styles, as well as some cool flatforms and bright animal print sneakers. It goes without saying that in my experience, they are also some of the most comfortable flats around, so basically it’s an all-round win.

adidas reissues the 80s Continental
adidas Continental trainers, £74.95 ([AD] adidas.co.uk)
It’s a well-known fact that I love a retro adidas sneaker, so I was thrilled to get my hands on a pair of Continentals last week (these were a gift from adidas). Originally released in the late 1980s, these are slightly more robust than my all-time favourite adidas – the Gazelle – and I love their aesthetic. I’ll be 100% honest and say they’re not immediately as comfortable as a Gazelle, and are a little harder to style with their chunkier proportions, but they look cool with jeans and, as I’ve discovered through a bit of research, particularly good with elasticated hemmed jeans which makes sense; I had a pair in the late ’80s and I loved them!
3 of the best…wellies that don’t actually look like wellies
With the arrival of Storm Erik this week, I realised that we have officially entered spring storm season. A time when you’re feeling spring-like, so don’t really want to wear your winter boots, but still need to keep your feet dry. So it’s time to welcome the wellies that don’t really look like wellies – a stylish alternative rubber boot to see you right through past the April showers.
