Trainer, sneakers, hi-tops whatever you like to call them are having a bit of a moment, it seems everywhere you turn everyone is wearing them, and I couldn’t be more pleased about this. I know they are not always the most glamorous, well except if you buy ones with lots of glitter and sequins, but most of all I love the comfort and durability of trainers.
For the most part I am a heels and boots type of doll, but my guilty pleasure is trainers, and generally classics or cute gets my vote. So you can imagine how excited I was to see Pastry at Cube PR’s latest press day.
Pastry is the creation of Run DMC’s daughters Angela and Vanessa Simmons, who launched the trainers under their family’s Run Athletics shoewear line back in 2007, and I just love their fun and quirky approach to trainers. I remember the first pair I bought came with a cake recipe – I hope that is still a feature.
My favourite shoes on display had to be the Pastry x Hello Kitty collaboration, which is a Foot Locker European exclusive!! I am a sucker for a collaboration, and I love a bit of Hello Kitty, how cute are those kitty’s in sunglasses on the laces – LOVE!!!
These bad boys hit stores on December 1 – in Blighty, Italy, France, Spain, Germany, Ireland and the Netherlands, and I can tell you I have already added those white and silver ones to my Christmas wish list *cc. Santa*.
The Pastry Paris Lover shoe is also a cutie, updated in a fresh light blue, I love the sequins and the cris-crossing straps overlay.
