New Kicks

A place I always visit in Hong Kong for one reason or another is Mong Kok. There are lots of fun malls to browse here but it is also the home of lots of streets which specialise in different items like Aquariums, Pets and Interiors. Mong Kok is pretty fun for street signage in Hong Kong. It’s such an explosion of colour. I kind of miss that.

On Fa Yuen Street is the market which is full of random things to buy…lots of cheap fashion, fruit sellers and items which wouldn’t go a-miss at the ultra touristy, Ladies Market. Sam was the one who introduced me to the market and it’s a lot of fun to browse!

A little further down the street (it’s a pretty long street) there is an area that is nicknamed ‘Trainer Street’ which sells, you guessed
it…lots of trainers! Here you can find both new styles or cheaper trainers which are from a few seasons ago.

Trainer St

While I was in HK, I bought a pair of Adidas kicks too. I love them but I haven’t owned any trainers for ages (I guess Converse don’t count) so I’m still trying to work them into my wardrobe. They’re pretty fun and I’ll have to feature them in an outfit post.

SAM_0509The awesome guys at Cloggs sent me a pair of trainers too and I was the good big sister and I sent them to my youngest sister instead who is a massive fan of Vans shoes. They arrived in the UK before I flew back from HK so I surprised her on Skype with these. She was over the moon with her shiny new shoes!

They’re pretty awesome for Summer (even though we are still waiting for it to turn up here in the UK!) and my sister always wears them with denim shorts, t-shirt and a backpack slung over her shoulder. Are you guys into trainers/sneakers? What styles do you usually go for?
