Infants Nike Huarache have become increasingly hard to come by, so finding a few pairs for sale online is most welcome. However, the pairs available usually don’t last long as they sell out extremely fast. It’s hard to understand why Nike don’t release more kids / toddlers pairs of Huarache’s because the demand is there. This White and Black pair are excellent. They are more white than black, which makes them a nice choice for summer wear.
However, they do have a black toe cap which is definitely a plus when it comes to toddlers trainers as it helps to hide the inevitable scuffs and dirt that will show up over time. What trend conscious toddler doesn’t want a pair of Huarache’s to hang out in!
Actually it’s the parents who call the shots and are the trend setters at that age. And I don’t think a toddler could afford a pair of these..As you are probably aware, genuine Adult Huarache’s are not cheap. They are either close to, or a lot of time, beyond £100. So expect to pay just below half price for the infant examples. This pair are priced between £48 – £55.
Yes, that is expensive for a pair of infants trainers, but Huarache’s in these tiny sizes are so in demand that even with a high price tag they still sell out very fast. Nike Huarache are usually quite tight-fitting so consider buying a half-size bigger to ensure a perfect fit. This pair start at an infant UK size 4.5 and go up to a 7.5. Be quick!
Here we have a true blast from the past with these Adidas Torsion (Q22099) Integral S trainers. The dazzling white, black purple and green (Teal) colour way makes them perfect for the summer. They have that fresh and bulky appearance, and sometimes with certain pairs of trainers you can just tell by looking, without even having to wear them, that they will sit really nice on the feet and go well with a whole host of casual and sport related clothing.
They are made from a breathable mesh and suede upper and have the full Torsion bar system within the under sole (Pictured above). And they come with the original yellow Torsion lace tag. Torsion Integral are being sold at under £50, which is a good price for a pair of these 90’s classic Adidas trainers. Sizes are limited from between UK 6 to UK 10. Really nice trainers and great quality for the price.
Another nice pair of Men’s Clarks shoes that are well made, reasonably priced, and easy to live with. Clarks Reeder Step are a great pair of casual slip-on shoes with a relaxed design that features an elasticated strip on each side of the tongue that makes putting on and taking off a very easy task. This also helps with comfort when wearing the shoes as it gives them that extra bit of stretch flexibility that laced shoes, when tied, lack a lot of the time.
They have a nice, moccasin style stitched front upper that goes really well with the relaxed design the Reeder Step have. A great shoe for wearing with casual clothing like Chino’s or jeans. Clarks Reeder Step are quite a low profile shoe which have a thick rubber sole that features side stitching. They have a full leather upper except for three small suede sections, one on the tip of the tongue and one on each side of the heel. While more and more shoe brands seem to be trending at rather high in price it’s refreshing to see the opposite with a lot of Clarks shoes.
Pairs can frequently be found for sale online for really cheap prices. And given the impressive quality of Clarks footwear, it makes it even more of a bargain finding them on sale for such cheap prices. These shoes are reported by most buyers as being true to size and of a good likeness to the pictures, which is always good when buying shoes online. They start from a UK size 6 and go up to a UK 12 with half sizes available.
Other than the Reeder Step, there are other pairs of slip-ons well worth a look. Those are the Clarks Shiply Step, which are fairly similar to the Reeder Step, and a totally different brand of shoe, The Rieker (05354-25) Slip-ons.
Merrell Annex GTX are another pair of tough, earthy hiking shoes built for withstanding hard terrains and stormy conditions. As with most pairs of Merrel Hiking shoes, their overall appearance is a nice mix of rugged, subtle styling, but with a casual, grown up feel that makes them not only suitable for hiking but also great for everyday wear. It’s no wonder Merrell hiking shoes are so popular amongst people aged between 25 – 55. They are great shoes, and they deliver.
Merrell Annex are a personal preference shoe by Merrell. This means that there are so many similar pairs of Merrell available. Whether you buy the Merrell Annex, the Allout Blaze, or a pair of Moab GTX, it basically comes down to which pair you like the look of the most. Of course, each pair does have differences in design and they will fit slightly different, but they all share many of the same features. They are all Gore-Tex, so they are waterproof, and they all have the M-Select Technology, which is exclusive to Merrell that wards off bad shoe odours created by the feet over time.
They also all have the Vibram outsole. So it’s no surprise that the three pairs mentioned are almost identical in their reviewer ratings. The Annex just beats the other two pairs by one point (4.5 rating vs 4.3 and 4.4). They are all equally good shoes. But the Annex are lighter in weight and seem to be less restricted movement wise than the other two mentioned. So they are probably the better pair if your buying them to wear this summer. Merrell Annex are durable. The uppers are reinforced with triple stitching in most locations of potential weakness.
The flat colour coded laces and zig zag styled side sole are nice touches too. Overall they are a good choice, and dare I say it, they are easily the best looking pair out of the three. However, if your going to be doing some heavy-duty hiking which could involve navigating up and down rocky ravines or similar, a pair of Merrell Boots, which offer better overall support would probably be a better choice.
They are not cheap though, but show me a pair of Merrell that are. Now and again sales come do up but it’s not as often as most people would like. Be aware of the sizing with Merrell Annex, which can be a bit on the small side. Some half sizes are available.
If you’re looking for a pair of Sandals to wear this summer that are well made, comfortable and have a look of quality about them you need look no further than the Fly London brand. The brand actually carry the Fly insect as their logo. You can see it on the side of the Fly Kani pictured below.
They have some really nice Sandals on sale. Of course, it’s a personal preference to what pair you choose but some pairs are more highly praised than others. The Fly Keil, Fly Tram, Bron, Oily T-Bar, and this pair, The Fly Kani, consistently receive the best reviews from buyers.
The uppers are made with a soft leather and they have stitching that goes all the way round the lip of the shoe. And they have an adjustable buckle and the trademark Fly insect logo on the side. As with a lot of Fly Sandals, Kani have a very high heel for a sandal. It’s a wedge that’s made from gum rubber.
The overall design gives them a look from a side view that resembles an enhanced version of the old Japanese wooden Sandals (Geta), although these Fly Kani are much more luxurious to wear!.
They are available in sizes from UK 3 to UK 8 and come in Camel Brown, White, Off White, Red, Black and Schwarz. Cost: £60 – £70. Great for the summer. Not your cup of tea? Or looking for something cheaper. Check out this pair of Papillio Pisa floral pattern sandals by Birkenstock which have a cork footbed and a nice relaxed design.
