A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the new sneaker range and said I would give a full report once I received my own order. I explained ‘private’ shoes are but also how very demanding the wearer’s culture is. They simply must be on fad. No doubts, no exceptions, no more messing. And now I must tell you these babies are EXACTLY RIGHT and do the job. I waited till I’d worn them a few times and to observe how they felt before putting down this for you — relaxation? style? fashion? Essentially’do they feel trendy?’ . Sneakers have to be right And this is because you know how it works shoes — we call them coaches in the UK — that they just must be right. Almost every aspect of footwear can feature some sort of compromise or design with fashion and could be improvised. Because of the amounts spent on branding, likely with trainers, it is OUT or IN. A style feels trendy or it seems done with. And I have to tell you it is the sole time I have thought beforehand when buying elevators:”will they be correct? Will I be cool with them” Before they were received by me. And I’ve spent years essentially not buying elevator sneakers due to these nagging doubts –“are they OK? Can they seem strange?” I advised you in my earlier cautious bit how it had taken me a few years. Right on trend And allow me to inform you that my own two pairs from the men at GuidoMaggi — I’ve the Giant Cougar as well as the Munich styles — are only totally fab. I can’t tell you just how much I’m into them and how they’ve piled my socks off collection. After wearing them I don’t have any doubts at all, specially. Here’s the secret. The Giant Cougar fit the current tendency for the chunky or’ugly’ sneaker that is around and will be for some time. And also the Munich are a sort of lesser key but distinctive’class’ coach that goes with dark jeans and even the really skintight spray-on skinnies I like to wear. Plus they have the fantastic feel of distinctive but not which looks just not quite or as if you are looking too hard and spending a lot just to look hip and a high brand made.
