I am clueless.

I need a pair of trainers - to wear with dresses and jeans/harem pants on holiday. Something I can walk all day in (I am also taking Ecco ankle boots & Birkenstock patent black sandals).

I'm preferring something colourful - perhaps red, yellow or turquoise.
I have a funky/bright rather than a classic/stylish style.
However I also like the Stan Smith style in black.

I quite like adidas and New Balance but don't really have a preference.

I also have size 9 feet so most "womens" trainers are out.

Looking online and I feel like I've fallen down a rabbit hole and it is destroying my brain.

Woden do some lovely trainers - similar in shape to New Balance. I love the rose gold ones!

Woden's are quite nice but only go up to 41 - I need a 43 sad

are these FitFlops naff or nice? I have a few FF sandals I love.
I don't mind Fugly shoes but these are very borderline:

Not keen!

What about some Adidas Gazelles in a funky colour?

Oooh thanks PNGirl

I have been looking at the green Gazelles on offer already and I do love the Red Superstars.

Very reassuring - thank you.

I ordered the red Superstars, plus a black pair of cheapies just in case:

Between Gazelles and Hamburgs adidas have got tons of colours. Look on the Size? website.

No worries! I've been stalking coloured trainers myself...

BeMorePanda Tue 14-Mar-17 15:21:38

there are just too many trainers int he world to choose from.

I'm a 9/43, but a 44 in Nike (errr) and can recommend Air Tavas. Beware of Nike Air Theas though as they go up to a 9-9.5, but are flipping narrow shock

Red gazelles!

Adidas Superstars or Gazelles all day long. Size 15 hubby and size 7 me love them both ❤

I'm also a 9! And a genuine 9, a lovely 43. This make see want to buy shoes I do find in every colour 🤣. UGG have lovely large sizes and a good selection of casual shoes. Hush Puppies and Clarks do 9's too.

I hear you @Mumbyday - 43's are very limited. Germany is good for 43's 😀
