Since the beginning of 2012 I’ve wanted to own a pair of Ash’s Bowie Wedge Trainers. Normally I like to consider an extravagant purchase for a few weeks before making it, but this is the first time I’ve taken nine months to make a decision. This lengthy indecision was a result of the customary question I apply to all fashion trends, “will it/they suit me?”, and in this case I wasn’t sure that they would.
Not being one for actual sports (unless the occasional Zumba class counts), the modern sports trend gives me the chance to channel a sporty edge without ever breaking a sweat. And in the year of the Olympics it's no surprise that sporty styling has pole vaulted into the spotlight.
