in training

Better late than never! This week’s – as it turns out: rather divisive – style column.

When I “need” new shoes I don’t usually go: I MUST have sneakers. Immediately! My routine is that I swap the old pair of Converse for a new pair of Converse every couple of years, normally around the time the old pair have holes big enough to soak up puddles. At first I bought the shoes in black, then in white (the question “Hi-tops or Lo-tops?” is as superfluous as the question “St. Pauli or HSV?” – if you have taste you shouldn’t have to ask it). It’s time for a new pair of trainers again and I suddenly think I might’ve outgrown my Converse. I blame Lexi and her Isabel Marant sneakers. Since they’re completely sold out, how about a pair in grey from New Balance? Or maybe the Nike AirMax? Or a pair of white Supergas?

Which trainers would you buy right now?

      Oh! In Blue Iris mag ich sie aber sehr. Und in weiß allerdings auch. Bin immer noch unentschlossen, welche die nächsten Turnschuhe sein sollen. Gerade denke ich: New Balance. Schon, weil ich in denen zumindest so tun kann, als sei ich irgendwie sportlich. Ha!

      Vielleicht ging es bei der Kontroverse gar nicht um Turnschuhe. Sondern um den Vergleich St. Pauli/HSV! Damit bin ich nun wirklich zu weit gegangen.

    Buy a pair of Ann Demeulemeester or Raf Simons sneakers…. or if that’s a bit excessive upgrade to a pair of John Varvatos converse

      Thanks, Ashley! I still haven’t bought a new pair. And all of these sound like I was right to wait. Now, where’d I put my credit card?
