Ostensibly this post is about my new shoes, but Posetta Baddog only has to see a camera to want in, so here is a photo of me in my new shoes + P Bad.
I love love love the latest iteration in the Nike x Liberty collaboration, and scooted up to Liberty’s shoe department quicker than a small quick thing, a day or so after they launched, en route to a meeting. Luckily for me they still had a few in stock, as they are selling out as soon they go on display. (It’s easier to find them online here.)
I had thought I was going to buy the Dunk Sky Hi Trainers, but was finally seduced by the walking on clouds feel of the Navy Bourton Liberty print Air Revolution Sky Hi Sneakerboots from the Nike x Liberty collection as I bounced around the shoe department, chuckling to myself like a loon. They are hands down the most comfortable thing I’ve worn on my feet in years.
That’s because they have an Air-Sole unit, which gives impact protection as well as a concealed wedge, which is good for me, as I look a little stumpy in trainers. (I know there’s a love/loathe thing going on with wedge trainers, but I fall firmly on the love side. Wedge wellies on the other hand are a foul aberration.) Mind you my sister thinks my new trainers are the ugliest thing she has ever seen, and shakes her head sadly whenever she sees me bounce in on them. I say Who’s wearing the cheery comfy shoes hey? THAT WILL BE ME THEN
riginally inspired by the first Nike basketball shoe, the navy paisley Liberty Bourton print adds a new twist to the iconic style. It’s a classic Liberty print: Bourton has been on classic Liberty Tana Lawn since 1987, but it was first produced on dress fabrics in the 1960s and was described at the time as coming from the Liberty archive.
I was also thrilled, as I had found a long mislaid £100 Liberty voucher wedged in the back of my desk drawer, so my shoes cost me £72.
The rest of the shoes in the range are on this slideshow, and below I’ve put together an edit of other great wedge trainers around at the moment.
I am wearing:
Chinti & Parker Star-print cotton-poplin dress £142 (gift)
Jaeger coat (bought from a sample sale. There’s another great mohair one here)
Ferragamo Navy cashmere scarf (seat gift at a dinner)
(Please excuse the slightly out of focus pics: Lil’sis was snapping away, but her MS makes her hands quite shaky. I always love the photos she takes, so fuzzy be damned.)
