I’m not a particularly acquisitive fashion lover. You won’t ever find me lining up outside a store for the launch of a new collection, or joining waiting lists for It Bags. But, once in a blue moon, something captures my imagination and my want want want alarm button goes off.
Which is what happened with the first iteration of the Nike x Liberty Dunk Sky High Liberty Print Trainers. Because, oh, I do love a bit of Liberty print, a lovely piece of Tana Lawn, a ditsy 30s floral print.. Unfortunately they were one of Liberty’s most popular collaborations, and sold out immediately at Liberty.
And then when I was visiting Nike Olympic HQ here in London last week I was told there was a new print wedge coming out. And today I saw it online at Liberty in all its glory. The Nike Dunk Sky Hi Sport high top remixed with the classic Pepper floral print in a purple and yellow colourway.
The 1980s classic has been redesigned and fitted with a concealed wedge platform and, most importantly, it’s STILL AVAILABLE for £95 of your British pounds. I love this trainer: its perfect for the English summer, pretty, warm and high enough to keep your feet out of the puddles. Also: sort of sporty-looking for our Olympic summer. All WIN.

(For the record, the Liberty in the name of this blog is to do with freedom & has zero connection to the store, love it as I do.)
