You know, readers, fashions and tastes may change, and I’d be the first to admit that I like lots of things now that I probably couldn’t even have imagined wanting to wear a few years ago, but in all of my shoe-buying years, there is one mantra I’ve never changed my mind about. It’s this: sneakers should not have heels. Ever.
This possibly seems a bit rich coming from someone who tends to think that most shoes could be improved with the addition of a bit of a heel, but nope: sneakers should not have heels. It goes so much against the grain that I just can’t bring myself to accept it – and I don’t think it looks good, either. Buy heels, or buy sneakers (if you absolutely must), but never the twain should meet as far as I’m concerned.
Of course, that’s just me, and that’s why I’m not even remotely tempted by these heeled trainers from New Look. Are you, though? If you are, you can buy yourself a pair here, for £30: they’re also available in black, too.
