So the Rio Olympics kicked off yesterday, and Converse have done something brilliant to celebrate.

The brand was Punkawala, and it makes shoes inspired by travels in India, but created right here in London. There are only four designs available at the moment but […]Read more "New shoe brand discovery: Punkawala"

If you’re not already familiar with the brand, Teva makes really practical sandals – […]Read more "Teva’s new slides"
