Hi, my name is Sian and I like shoes!
Last week it was all about shoes. I had such a sh*t week at work that I decided to tick off one of my ‘40 things before 40‘ list items and purchase a pair of Louboutins. It made the week feel so much better and they are beautiful. Not content with those dream shoes, I’ve wanted a pair of converse for ages and ages as I have a few pairs of jeans and need a smart/casual pair of comfy shoes to go with them so they popped into my shopping basket too. The gorgeous trainers arrived last week from New Balance and they fit like a glove. I cannot wait to try them out in Chamonix trail running next week. And then, last but certainly not least are my new La Sportiva B3 mountain boots. I have wanted a pair of these for an age – longingly looking online at them daily. Every time I go to an outdoor shop, I pop over and stroke them. 😉 Anyway, I went to a lovely shop in Keswick and got fitted for them and decided to go for it. I negotiated the price too so got 10% off, which on £300 is nothing to stiff at. Now I have my very own boots ready for climbing mount Elbrus next year.
