I find it hard to dress down at weekends, mostly because I am a shirt pear shape and flats don't really work too well on me. In winter I tend to stick to skinnies / leggings and knee high boots but these seem to be out of favour this year a bit.

So in a bid to dress down but still wear heals I'm wondering if these new wedge trainers might be my friend?

Something like this although not exactly what i'd be looking for!?!?!

Or are they just fashion victim fugly - not sure I can pull them off at 32!

You can so pull them off. I want a pair minus the wedge!! I'm tall and not a heel fan so at least you are lucky in tht respect.
I've seen some lovely ones in river island that don't break the bank

I am soon to be 36 and wear Ash wedge trainers. They are great :-) I wear with skinnys and flares.

Ohhh the ash ones are quite nice but totally out of my budget - I think I'll start with a cheap pair and see if I like them. Biggem, I wish i didn't have to think about wearing heals all the time! Off to check out the RI website

Office had some too - I am jealous of it heel wearing!!
Let me know what u decide on please...if its the mulberry / claret RI ones I will be V V Jealous!!

This thread refers. Opinion seems to vary!

hmm now biggem, although I like the red ones i think even that may be a style stretch too far for me wink

I really hate the wedge trainers look. Screams 90s / Spice Girls to me. I know loads love them though

Oh they're really hideously ugly.
