Adidas Shell Toes are back!!! I know I’m a little late to this party but they’re back!!! What I’m about to say makes me sound really old, but…. I owned a pair of these the first time around, I must have been around 13 years old. I had a good giggle with a friend the other day reminiscing about how we used to wear them. The laces would be baggy, allowing the tongue to stick out an almost right angle, they used to be so loose on my feet I had to slide around in them. Back then I used to style them with baggy jeans and more than likely a billabong hoodie, I was a total surf chick wannabe, with no surf!
Over 15 years later and they’re on the soles of my feet again, bright white and a little more bouji with the inclusion of some gold on the tongue. This time around though I’ve styled them a little more differently; skinny ankle grazing denim, a big cream cosy jumper and my new teddy bear coat which I got for Christmas. I was after a coat like this for a while, one that’s long but not too smart so it can be worn over jeans and trainers. This is perfect, I found it in Bluebird on Kings Road just before Christmas, I couldn’t make up my mind at the time but unknown to me my boyfriend took a sneaky pic of the label and it was under the tree on Christmas Day, expect to see it in a lot of instagram snaps over the next few months.
These pics were taken the other day, we managed to duck out into Hyde Park in between rainstorms. I just about managed to dodge any muddy puddles to keep them shiny white as new.
