What are people's thoughts on slip on trainers? Kurt Geiger type thing with a thick sole.

I am 45 but feel and dress quite young. But are they too try hard?

I had these is pinky colourway last Year and might buy in silver this year, they went with everything and I wore loads. They may not be clumpy enough for you? They were super comfy too. I'm same age as you.

I have the pinky Clarks too-I love them. So comfy. Although need a wee sock liner thing with them.

I saw these advertised the other day and are meant to be invisible when worn with trainers which sounds good. Has anyone tried them?

Thanks all. I have very narrow feet, wonder if they'll stay on! Don't Superga come up wide?

I personally don't like them. But I'msure I wear some things you don't like....

I wear them all the time , superga are big ish . I have plain white ones and leopard ones . I'm a very casual dresser though .

I have narrow-ish feet and don't find those superga wide on me. Though I've only worn them a couple of times so far so I don't know if they'll stretch and get wider after more wear. They don't seem stretchy - the leather feels quite stiff so I don't know how someone with wide feet would comfortably get them on when new.
