I have recently talked about it in my last post: One of my current missions is to build an optimized, timeless wardrobe. For the last years, I had always been quite an impulsive shopper, which resulted in a colourful and fancy wardrobe with unique clothes that I absolutely love, but in the end most of them don’t fit together too well, resulting in an acute case of “I have nothing to wear”.
Sometimes I just need this one thing to pull my outfit together, something casual and basic that adds a relaxed vibe to the whole look. Last week I found exactly this: Simple yet stylish black sneakers. I knew I needed some for a while now, but couldn’t really bring myself to choosing and investing the money until this day that I tried on each and every single pair of shoes that I owned with my outfit, discontent with all of them. So I went to this vegan shoe store (yay Berlin for having things like vegan shoe stores!), got these Ethletic Fair Skater sneakers and barely took them off since then. Their made from fairtrade organic cotton, sustainably produced rubber and completely vegan.
I really do love them and have a strong feeling they will become a wardrobe staple for me sooner than I can say “fair sneakers” – what do you guys think?
