On the Run – in Liberty for Nike trainers

Always eager to try out something a bit different but comfortable in the footwear department, I was excited to receive this box from Liberty this week…

…which contained these imperial purple liberty print free 5.0 trainers by Nike.  One of several styles, you can see the rest of them here.  They are part of a range of heritage and modern Nike classics, which have been remixed with Liberty’s iconic lagos laurel print. Having loved liberty prints for as long as I can remember, and being a fan of trainers too – although more often in a sporting kind of way – for me they were a match made in heaven.

The first thing I noticed was that the laces and the toe details were slightly off centre – which took a while to get used to. However, never one to be put off by things that are slightly different, I grew to like them.

Unfortunately they were a tad on the small side for me and Liberty have sold out of the next size up, so I guess that it just wasn’t meant to be.  However, were they to become part of my wardrobe, this is how I would wear them – very simply with navy trousers and a breton top.

In the colder months I would also add a sleek tailored crombie style coat and a smart handbag.  They would have been perfect for the days I spend a long time in the shops – comfortable but a bit quirky.

Hopefully it won’t be too long before there is an A/W collection out. This time I just need to be quicker off the mark!

Today’s outfit – Cos trousers, FC jumper, Liberty trainers

    Don't be fooled by the source. If j d sports had sent them would you have worn them? No! Stop being ridiculous x x

      That's so funny – I asked at my local running shop whether they stocked them but they didn't. JD sports would have been fine though – at least I wouldn't have had to pay the postage. xx

      Hello! Yes, converse are great aren't they? Although they are flatter than these trainers. No, I paid for the trainers – I always state if anything has been sent to me either to review, or as a gift.

      Hello Liverpool Lass – good to hear from you! That's really kind of you to say that you like the blog. I liked the other prints too – but then I have always been a Liberty fan!

    Love them. Chasing around a young toddler means sensible footware. I'm always looking out for nice looking trainers to go with jeans.

      Hi Sylvia – oh yes, I remember those days well- the need for something that you can put on in the morning and then not think about until the evening. Happy days!

      Hi Andress – glad that you like the blog, thanks for that. I thought that the trainers were a bit different too, which is why I liked them. The comfort of a trainer but without the full on sporty look – just a shame they didn't fit!

    I have been lusting after a pair of the Nike/Liberty trainers for ages since seeing them on another blog (TNMA). But I am on a self imposed spending ban! Something for later on maybe? I have a vague recollection of OH saying he was going to buy me something extra for my birthday …

    Great look! The trainers are comfy and the slim fit trousers look really polished – best of both comfort and style! Love!
