When it comes to shoe shopping I’m the first one
to admit that I find it a miserable experience, nothing ever seems to really
fit me that well, I’m scared of heels even though I love them and don’t get me
started on dolly shoes!
So when I saw that Barratts were kindly offering people the opportunity
to review some of their Hi Top Trainers I admit I hesitated for a few
minutes, that was until I clicked on the link and saw what was on offer…I
didn’t look back after that!
I chose the Odeon Stud Trim Lace Up Hi Top Trainers in tan as firstly, I do not own any
brown/tan footwear so I thought they would be different and secondly, I’m a bit of
a sucker for the studded detail on things at the moment.
These arrived extremely fast after I had ordered them which
was fantastic as I got to wear them a lot sooner! As you can see below they are
a nice tan colour which incidentally matches a nice tan bag I picked up in the
sale last month. As well as this they have brass coloured square studs along
the back of the heel which I think is a nice added touch.
Now, when I first put them on they did feel really quite
tight and I was worried that I may need the next size up, however; once I had
loosened the laces (and had removed my thick granny socks) they fit like a
glove! I was amazed at the difference just loosening the lace had made.
I wasn’t sure what to wear with these at first as
my idea was to put on my thick cosy tights from Primark; however I had left
them at university, booo! So, the next best thing on offer was my black jeans
which I think looked ok in the end.
These trainers do come in black too and at the
moment they are just £20 in the sale, I honestly think this is an absolute
bargain price for this pair of trainers. I picked up a size 6 as that is normally my
size in most places so I would say that these do come up pretty true to your
There is a nice variety of Hi Tops to choose
from so do have a browse, I’m already eyeing up a pair of the Skechers ones!
