Adidas Originals Stan Smith Leopard via Foot Asylum*



Ask me a few years ago if I’d ever consider wearing trainers then you’d get a big fat hell to the nope. Trainers for me have always been something to be worn exclusively for sport and even then it was a struggle to even find ones I liked then. Fashion Trainers became a thing circa 2014 and show no signs of leaving the fash pack any time soon. In the spirit of at least trying to embrace a trend I got heavily into Skate shoes - Although that’s debatable if that came with the fact I’ve basically reverted back to the 2005 emo version of myself. Checkerboard Vans forevz.

I’d tweeted about these particular Stan Smith trainers and the guys at Foot Asylum noticed my tweet and offered them to me. I was a few clicks away from purchasing them myself but I thought, what the hell. So I accepted in the hopes to try something new.

I haven’t regretted it one bit - These bad boys have barely left my feet. Super comfy, easy to wear and slipped right into my everyday dressing without fault. The leopard print brings out my secret scene kid without being over bearing and the black with white sole is chic and minimal. Paired with a pair of Jamie Jeans, a vest top and a longline duster it's a outfit made in sartorial laziness heaven.

I'll feature them in a proper outfit post soon but damn - I had to rave. I never got trainers as an actual fashion item but now I think I get it. Stylish and comfy. What more could a girl want?

  5. In NYC, sneakers are everything. I've never really taken an interest in them--I've owned my share of Pumas but never anything too name brand. I did get a pair of the wedge sneakers which I never really wore. Hmm. I would rather just have a pair of chunky boots!

  6. I love wearing trainers everyday now, even though I doubted i'd ever wear them for anything but the gym! I've got a fair few pairs of Puma Suedes that are my go-to ones. I love the look of these though!

  11. I'm so with you on trainers: I would never have DREAMED of wearing them outside of exercising, but now I can't get enough of them! I love your choice here, the pattern is fantastic!

  25. I know what you went through...I never was a trainers girl either but found my dream pairs. Leopard Vans...Once you found the perfect shoes you won't even take them of.
    Really like your Stan Smith, would be a pair I consider buying.

  31. I like these as 'fashion trainers' because they don't look like you couldn't be bothered to change your gym shoes. I really don't get it when people wear Nike Free Runners with jeans though. It makes no sense.

  33. !!! How I Get My Husband Back With The Help Of Dr.jerry !!!

    “LOVE is the key to LIFE”. That was the word from Dr jerry when I consulted his powerful Love Temple. I married the wrong man; I realized that after four years of our unfruitful marriage. Everything was going from Best to Worst in our life, no child, I got demoted from work after our marriage, my husband was sacked a year after. His application for new job in various offices was constantly declined even though he was qualified enough. I was made to take care of my family with the low income I earn get that wasn’t enough to pay our rent. We keep praying a seeking for help from some people, my friends laugh at me behind because I was advised not to get married yet.It was one Thursday night that my husband woke me up and told me that has thought enough about our crisis, he said that our crisis is not ordinary and it’s beyond our spiritual level. He suggested we should consult Dr jerry from testimonies he showed me online about how he has been helping families. I was afraid, I don’t like evil or spell but I supported him to contact him if he can help us. We consulted him viajerryspiritualspelltemp@gmail.com and he replied positively after 20munites with congratulating email that he can help us but he will need our pure heart and trusts in his work if he will cast the spell on us and purify our life. We agreed to his terms. He cast the spell and told us to expect results within 5days. I waited for three days nothing happened, so I started having doubt and blaming my husband for emailing Dr jerry. It was on the fifth day that my husband was called for an interview and he got a well-paying work, I was prompted to a higher position. I missed my period on the 5th day and it was confirmed that I am with a baby. Things have really changed for us for good and we now have our own house and cars. I will never forget what Dr jerry told us “LOVE is the key to LIFE”, this word keep me going. People that laughed at us are coming close for help and I am delighted to welcome them because my family is now blessed. Dr jerry is a savior and man that keep to his word even when I doubted his powers at the end of the spell. Thank you great Dr jerry and your Oracle for helping us via jerryspiritualspelltemp@gmail.com and I will keep spreading this message to people in need of help. also contact him for help.website address: jerryspiritualspelltemp@gmail.com ;)
