What Do Your Shoes Say About You?

We made it to Tuesday Shopcaders, rejoice! To celebrate this milestone, here’s another wonderfully insightful blog post. This time it’s all about which summer shoe you are!

Do you have all the traits of a Jelly Shoe- fashionable but fickle, or are you all about your ballet flats- stylish yet reliable? Find out below!

You are married to your Air Max: Hey, don’t be ashamed to be a trainer!

The first thing you need to do is forget everything you think you know about the sporty look. We’re not talking about full tracksuits and jackets that sports coaches wear when standing on the side lines. You don’t even have to have too much branded sportswear in your look if you’d prefer not to! For the sporty look, we’re thinking casual and airy, but dressed in such a way that if you had to go and play tennis or run around at the click of a finger, you’d be able to do so comfortably.
