Trainers = the thing on your foot you wear if you're good and you exercise
Sneakers = if you are American/have lived for a long time in America
For the purpose of this blog post I shall refer to the highlighted item as a pump or trainer but it may be that you call it a sneaker. Where possible, I shall refer to how the brand in question phrase the said item.
A while back I was working with our local shopping mall and I was helping style the models in 3 different shops - Jigsaw, Mint Velvet and Joules. One of the models had THE MOST AMAZING pair of silver pumps on - they were from Jigsaw. Yesterday, on Avenue 57, I spotted another pair of silver pumps on this amazing lady, this time from Boden (but appear to be last year or before because I can't find them online today). And so now the obsessing begins .. I WANT SILVER PUMPS/TRAINERS but I do not want to pay the earth for them because I also need some white converse and I haven't even STARTED on summer sandals for the season ahead. The reason I haven't is because I'm not actually convinced we'll get one (just like last year's wash out).
So after a quick search I have found the following for sale today:
Jigsaw Satin Trainer - £55
So after spending too long searching and not finding a cheaper alternative to the Jigsaw silver pumps it looks like I'll just have to buy those! I love them!
If you spot along the way some silver pumps/trainers/sneakers, please let me know! If you own some, please make me jealous and post on Avenue 57.
