Colour Pop Sneakers and The New Style Socks

I’m calling time on the cold and defying the weather by putting away my winter footwear and bringing out my trainers once again. Have had a break from them as it’s been too cold to bare my ankles, but am overcoming this superficial problem by alternative between pop socks (not very sexy but my staple) and if the temperature stays the same (cold) it’s time to grab the ‘fun sock’ trend and put them on display.  There are so many about!

Here is some inspiration that I have taken from Pinterest.

Rainbow stripes are always going to lift your mood!


Topshop Rainbow Socks £3.50


The next big thing are sock tights. Don’t say I didn’t tell you!

Tight socks

Jazz Ankle Socks £6


I also love these to keep your tootsies warm.

Topshop Embroidered Star Sporty Socks £4

Green Star

ASOS Pink Glitter Flame Sock £3.50




So, thats your socks sorted, lets move on to the bread and butter.

Anthropologie Treton Carry 11 Trainers £88

I am often envious of my kids velcro trainers – they are so neat and there is no faffing with laces.  (Although silicon laces are a game changer if you are still a lace up kind of person!)

Pink Trainers

Rose Rankin Corney Low Top Velvet Lip £80

Designed by Rose in London and made in Portugal, her sneakers are all lust worthy. These velvet ones are not only gorgeous but an amazing price for a smallish brand that is stocked in Selfridges.

Velvet lips

Saucony Vintage Trainers £75

I hadn’t heard of this brand but when I was doing my research on ASOS, the colours, style and price jumped out of me. Purple is one of the biggest colours this year and this gives a little nod in the right direction.


New Balance Shoes 373 £37

If you want full on purple, my favourite brand (yes I said it – they are, officially my favourite trainer brand) New Balance once again get it right with these purple and white 373 with a slick of turquoise.

Purple New Balance


B4 Ballerinas Leopard Print and Red Trainers £148

These gorgeous trainers that are made and PERSONALISED in Italy are mega. You should also see the raffia yellow ones too.  Not strictly wipe clean as they are made of horse hair – but too good not to include!




ASOS Didi Strap Trainers £22


Air and Grace Copeland Neon Trainers £149

In an ideal world I, these Rainbow Leopard Print in collab with Dress Like a Mum would be top of my list, but they are sold out so these neon colour pop trainers come a very close second. If you want to veer away from pin, they also come in Neon Yellow.


Hush Majestic Star Trainers £179

I won’t ever get move on from stars. Some say they are 2017 – I say they are now a classic.

Silver Star

Boden Hollie Trainers £75

Avoid looking like Mr Tumble’s spotty bag by keeping other colours in your outfit to a minimum. These are original and with a skirt would look ace.

Boden Spots

Veja Neon Magenta Leather Trainers £105

Veja coming up trumps again with glitter blue and pink combination.



Dune Edris White £60

Trying to find turquoise trainers is hard but these appliqué star sneakers from Dune are pretty and feminine and will sate my turquoise love for the moment.

Dune Edris White

Hope this has been helpful and give you a little hope that the end is in sight!

Have a lovely weekend
