Or what's fashionable... Is it the bright colours or white these days?

Following as interested to, my daughter has a pair of the standard uniform Adidas ones but they are very tatty now.

I find asics are better for their feet and for running, but Nike 'day-wear' might be more a la mode I think.
I had bought her Nike Huarache white ones, but her feet have grown so I've had to return them. Can't get same ones in size 6, so re-thinking my options.

isn't it 97s all the way?

hiddley Fri 24-Nov-17 18:44:13

what are they now when they're at home? grin

hiddley Fri 24-Nov-17 18:46:44

Christ, just googled, they're way over my budget!

Caulk Fri 24-Nov-17 18:48:09

Huaraches are definitely not worn here. A lot of Nike mesh and NB/puma classic style ones

Caulk Fri 24-Nov-17 18:49:24

Nike Air Force 1?

hiddley Fri 24-Nov-17 18:59:29

Caulk, if you have time, could you link to Nike mesh and NB/PUMA?

I’ve been asked for tn’s or at least I think that’s what she asked for!

lizabes Fri 24-Nov-17 19:11:55

Nike AirMax and Adidas Gazelles are popular with ours but 14yo dd’s favourites at the moment are her Pumas. She’s got them in black and gold and wants this pair as part of her Christmas.

hiddley Fri 24-Nov-17 19:19:10

Think I'd prefer to get her less fashionable ones, and more ones particularly designed for running. She has enough decorative ones.

hiddley Fri 24-Nov-17 19:28:30

God only knows what tn's are!

Dd is 14 and in year 10 and they all want white converse - which is fantastic for winter and mud when you live in the countryside. shock

Caulk Fri 24-Nov-17 19:31:03

Sure. They are all fashion ones though, as are the huraches you mentioned.

New Balance and Puma as photos

The silver NB ones are cool.

hiddley Fri 24-Nov-17 19:36:02

Do you guys buy decorative pairs and proper running type ones? Dd is into a lot of sport.

hiddley Fri 24-Nov-17 19:48:10

What about these ones?

hiddley Fri 24-Nov-17 19:52:34

I don't think the decorative types would withstand a hockey match or 12 laps of the pitch during PE. Might be a little painful!

Caulk Fri 24-Nov-17 19:55:15

Here it’s PE trainers that stay in PE kit, running shoes for club runs and then 2 or 3 pairs of fashion trainers/converse.

jaimelannistersgoldenhand Fri 24-Nov-17 19:56:35

Dd likes Nike Roshe, Adidas NMD R1 in Black or Dusky Pink

jaimelannistersgoldenhand Fri 24-Nov-17 19:57:39

Dd has different trainers for sport and fashion.

Justgivemesomepeace Fri 24-Nov-17 19:57:57

Mine has specific trainers for sport and trendy ones for hanging about in. If she does a lot of sport don't let her do it in some of the fashion trainers, she'll get injured.

hiddley Fri 24-Nov-17 20:02:40

Ye, so far I buy proper running ones and she buys cheap decorative ones from Primark herself with her pocket money. Budget I have left is just for either one or the other. I might go for those Nike ones. And ask my Mam to get her more trendy hanging out ones.

Which does she need?
