New In: Puma Cabana Racer

I've always loved trainers, growing up i hardly wore anything else (my favourites were a pair of blue Nike Air Force 1's) but i stopped wearing them during one of my many teenage phases.  Recently, i've fallen back in love with the humble trainer with it's comfort, colourways and laid-back coolness. From the Reebok Classic to the Janoski to the Adidas Originals there's something for everyone with collaborations & special releases allowing for innovation combining much loved aesthetics and brand identities.

After my huge wardrobe clear out i realised that my shoe collection was so bland and i thought if i'm attempting to inject more colour into my wardrobe why should it just stop at my clothes?  Although my shoe size has been a major enemy of progress in my goal of creating a more diverse shoe closet i've realised that with some serious research finding shoes in smaller sizes isn't impossible.  I've taken to eBay in my searches realising that some of the high street stores have outlets that sell more of the smaller sizes than stocked in store and it's this that lead me to my purchase of the day.

I spotted these Kids Puma Cabana Racer's on eBay but thought i'd pop into my local Sports Direct to check if they were in stock and save myself the £3.99 postal charge.  Since getting my Nike Free Runs i've been drawn to running shoes because of their sleek lightweight designs and comfort and i thought i'd give Puma a go since i already own some Reebok's and Nike's.  I went for the Puma Cabana's in a blue, grey & red colourway for an old school vibe, quite different from what i'd usually go for but change is good right?!

So there we have the latest addition to my shoe collection.  I'm thinking of pairing these with light knits, skinnies, slit maxis and dresses in summer.  I've come full circle with trainers, rather than being driven by brand names & bulkiness i'm favouring sleek yet bold designs.  They aren't everyone's cup of tea but i think i'll still be loving trainers when i'm 80...

or maybe not, we'll see.
