I have big feet, I'll be the first to admit it. I've always struggled to find shoes that fit me - my 'canoe' like feet (as they've been affectionally called in the past) are a UK size 8-9 (about 42 EU), and not only are they large, but they are also on the wide side. So why am I telling you all of this? Well, it's because when I buy shoes, I occasionally have to stray over to the men's section to get my fix, and these brand spanking new kicks are a perfect example of this embarrassing confession. Apparently Nike hardly ever have anything above a 7 in the women's section, so when I decided that I needed some comfortable shoes in my life, it was over to the men's side of the store for me. 


I would be lying if I said that this purchase wasn't influenced by the gorgeous ViviannaDoesMakeup - she just has such flawless style! So, once I saw this post about her styling her own pair of Nike Free Runs, I knew I had to get myself some comfy trainers of my own. I wanted an 'everyday' shoe, something I could wear with anything, and that's where these bad boys came in. Like I said, I was a tad more limited due to my annoyingly-sized feet, but I managed to find this smart looking Nike 'Internationalist' pair, and for an extremely reasonable £65. Basically, I tend to walk a lot, and I'm sick of having sore feet by the end of the day when the weather is too warm for boot-wearing. In fact, for the last month or so, I've been sporting my Havaiana flip flops - which are really comfy, but not after a full day out and about, not to mention that I can't drive in them. Basically, I am extremely chuffed with the latest addition to my shoe-wardrobe, and I'm sure you'll be hearing a lot more about them in the future...

  1. I really like these! They're comfy, but thanks to the colours still very stylish :)
    For my birthday recently I got a voucher for the Nike ID shop, so I'll be personalising a pair of Roshe Runs soon. Can't decide on the colours though!

  2. Those sure sound like pretty big feet but you aren't alone! I have massive feet for my country standards too! :P Although I have better luck in department stores.. and usually always find something that fits.

  4. Ugh, this is the story of my life. Not sure how UK compares with US sizing, but I wear a 9.5 US(sometimes 10) size shoe. I was actually eyeing the Nike Frees. Black shoes trick the eye into making feet look smaller, plus they look pretty sleek!
