Back to sneakers














In the last couple of years I haven't bought a pair of ''real'' sneakers. Sure I was buying Converse (more because they look good with anything and I love them, than because they are popular and trendy), but besides them I hardly ever wore other sneakers I had, so there was no point in getting new ones. Last year I realised I wanted to get Adidas Samba sneakers (previously known as Adidas Universal) in white, to this day I think those are one of the most beautiful sneakers that exist. To cut the long story short, they didn't have my size in store, apparently they are considered to be ''male'' sneakers. so they only had bigger sizes, and I ended up ordering them online. For some strange reason they didn't arrive (this never happended to me before), but I got the full refund including shipping (cause Ebay is just awesome like that). 

Sadly, I still didn't have new sneakers and I wanted a pair that's a bit more elegant so I can wear them with dressy outfits as well. Mainly, I wanted to go back to wearing sneakers for the sake of comfort. If you run around doing errands all day, every pair of shoes will become uncomfortable. As an obvious (and serious) over-analyzer when it comes to fashion I started to think what are other sneakers I have had and really, really liked. Then I remembered, my Reebok Classic sneakers I owned since I was 12 and never got rid of. My old pair now looks like it belongs to sneakers museum, but I managed to find the exact same model! I couldn't be happier, they are comfortable, they look nice, I've been wearing them all the time. Even when it rains I don't wear my wellies, I rather opt for these sneakers. Who would have known I would become a convert?
P.S. Post about the growing sportswear and sneakers trend (also known as sport luxe) will be up soon!



Tokom nekoliko poslednjih godina nisam kupila par ''pravih'' patika. Naravno, kupovala sam starke (više jer se slažu uz sve i jer ih volim, nego zbog trenda i trenutne popularnosti), ali osim njih skoro nikad nisam nosila druge patike koje imam, pa nije ni bilo poente da kupujem nove. Prošle godine shvatila sam da želim bele Adidas Samba patike (ranije poznate kao Adidas Universal), do dan danas mislim da su to jedne od najlepših patika koje postoje. Da skratim priču, nisu imali moj broj u prodavnici, jer se one, jelte, smatraju ''muškim'' patikama pa su imali samo velike brojeve i na kraju sam ih naručila preko Interneta. Iz nekog čudnog razloga nisu mi stigle (što mi se nikada ranije nije desilo), ali dobila sam pun povraćaj novca uključujući i poštarinu (zato što je Ebay prosto sjajan). 

Nažalost, i dalje nisam imala nove patike, a želela sam par koji je malo elegantniji, da bih mogla da ih nosim i sa elegantnim kombinacijama. Glavni razlog zbog kog sam ponovo poželela da se vratim nošenju patika jeste udobnost. Kad ceo dan trčite tamo-vamo svaki par cipela na kraju postane neudoban. Kao neko ko očigledno (i ozbiljno) previše razmišlja o modi, počela sam da mislim o tome koje su druge patike koje sam imala i zaista volela. Tada sam se setila svojih Reebok Classic patika koje imam od dvanaeste godine i kojih se nikad nisam otarasila. Moj stari par sada izgleda kao da pripada muzeju patika, ali sam uspela da pronađem identičan model! Ne bih mogla da budem srećnija, udobne su, lepo izgledaju, nosim ih sve vreme. Čak i kada pada kiša ne nosim gumene čizme, radije se opredelim za ove patike. Ko je mogao da pretpostavi da ću da se preobratim?
P.S. Post o rastućem trendu nošenja sportske odeće i patika (poznatijem kao sport luxe) će biti na blogu uskoro!

    1. They really are lovely! I got the European size 38, which is size 5 in the UK and 7 1/2 in the US. I normaly wear this shoe size so I'll say they fit true to size. :)
