Nike Hi-Tops: Schuh Ebay Store

You might have noticed these shoes in my last Sunday Summary post and ohmygod I am in love with them! They are so comfy and effortlessly cool with jeans and a tshirt. I've added my bright pink H&M blazer to this outfit to make it a bit more 'sports luxe'. I really like this blazer as it looks good dressed up or dressed down, which is always useful!

I had to dig these jeans out from the back of my wardrobe to wear with this outfit, and I must admit they're a little bit tighter than they used to be! I used to wear jeans every day, but somewhere along the way I got distracted by skirts and dresses and abandoned my old faithful Topshop Pippas. Sadly Topshop don't make the Pippa style any more but I've got my eye on the Kristens instead. The blue denim pair would be great for 'everyday' jeans, and the peachy ones are gorgeous and would be great for summer. I'm on a spending ban at the moment, but I might see if my budget can stretch to the blue pair as jeans are pretty much a wardrobe essential, right? Right.

The shoes themselves are amazing and look great with jeans. Unfortunately I don't think I'm quite cool enough to pull them off with skirts/dresses but I shall do some experimenting and see! I've wanted a pair of hi-tops for ages but wasn't willing to pay £50+ for them as I don't think I'll wear them all that often. So when I spotted these on the Schuh Ebay page I had to snap them up. I ended up getting them for £13, absolute bargain! The Schuh Ebay Store sells shoes that are ex-display, returns, slightly faulty etc. and most of the auctions start at 99p. Usually you can barely tell there's any 'damage' so you're basically getting a brand new pair of shoes for a fraction of the price! My hi-tops had a tiny scuff-mark on the black part but I wouldn't even have noticed it if it hadn't been pointed out.

Do you like wearing jeans? What other outfits would you wear hi-tops with?

  6. I love the colour of your blazer, it's a great match with the hi tops.

    I pretty much live in jeans, skinny ones mainly. I did go through a flares phase once! Hmmm..... :D xx

  10. I use to hate wearing jeans and I still like jeans on a case by case basis but I've warmed up to a pair or two. My first love will be dresses and skirts though. I like being able to act like a dork in jeans, because it is hard to climb about and stuff in a dress/skirt. I love the colors in the high tops.

  11. I have a pair of shoes like these, and I am always freaked out to wear them because you can only really wear them with jeans and jeans frighten me these days! You look so so so cool though. Love how the blazer matches the shoes :)

  12. Love your hi-tops and especially the hot pink blazer. I'm always in my topshop jeans they are the most comfortable jeans I've ever bought and worn!

    I'd definitely wear hi-tops with chinos or leggings, a slogan t-shirt and some aviators for a effortless summer look :)

  15. SUCH a bargain! I'm impressed! Unfortunately when I do sports luxe all the local chavs start smiling at me instead of throwing insults - somehow I'm doing it wrong.
