As Spring has Sprung, I feel I will start to break out the trainers again. I like wearing them with ankle skimming jeans or trousers with no socks. I feel the cold so I have to wear socks in the Winter and letting my ankles see the light of day just doesn't happen until around about now so my thoughts are turning to the trainer again. Last year I purchased my first pair of Ash Jalouse boots. They have been stuck on my feet, worn in so well (so well in fact that there was another bargain purchase last months which I will share next, promise). One trend which I just couldn't get my head around was the wedge trainer. I still have mixed feelings, I still think they look great on others but for some reason, every time I've tried them on, something felt wrong.

Maybe it's the leather, the price tag, the buckles, I'm just not sure. But I just really like the idea of a trainer giving little old me some height. I love wearing a heel which is why I have loved my Ash boots as the heel is the perfect height for every day wear. I don't think I have written them off completely, more that perhaps I just haven't found the right ones yet. I like the look of the Esprit ones below. Maybe it's that they look a little more like a trainer but not as bulky as the Ash Bowie trainer - so a good in between. I also think that the wedge is slightly more discreet which I like.

So have you succumbed to the wedge trainer yet? Or will you be sticking with the flat versions?
