When Layers&Swathes Met NikeiD.

January 6, 2012

I’d like to begin by saying that this is not a sponsored post.

Last night I surprised myself and did something I almost never do… I read my usual daily blogs, saw a pair of trainers that I instantly fell in love with but were enormously out of budget, searched around for something equally as cool, literally stumbled upon the NikeiD website, spent an hour having a blast customizing some trainers, proceeded to check out and am now awaiting the arrival of some shit-hot high-tops.

There are many unusual behaviors in my above sentence. Firstly, since when was my craving for trainers enough to cause me to impulse buy? IN JANUARY? And secondly… Who do I think I am? Nicki Minaj?

That aside, I can’t remember the last time I had a general auto analysis and so much fun buying something for myself. I felt a bit like Alicia Silverstone in that scene in Clueless with her instantly customizable electric wardrobe. If you’re a trainer girl like me, I cannot recommend the experience enough.

The best part? My feet are going to look cool AND comfortable during London Fashion Week…


In case you’re interested, I went for the charcoal denim twill base with black and purple leather finishes… ;)

    You know, I would definitely wear those – they are wicked!

    I’m in the market for some hightops and never thought about Nike ID!


    Thanks L&S xxx

      Glad I could help! You do realise that if you’re going to do this – I’m going to have to come over and watch so I can go through the whole process again?! Its honestly SO much fun!

        Yeah, of course, I am after something a bit different so your advice on the matter would be most helpful.
