Man Repeller Flatform Trainers

Yep, you guessed from the title. Today's post touches on the subject of man repeller shoes...flatform trainers to be precise. Where do I begin with Flatform trainers? I think the best analogy would be to compare them to Marmite. You either love them or hate them. I know most guys definitely hate them. Platform shoes sure have been taking the fashion world by storm and I guess we have Stella McCartney to thank for that. I know I have been swooning over her lace up platforms for a while now but priced at £600 a pair, it's a no go especially for a shoe I won't wear all the time. 

Admittedly, I have a bit of a love hate relationship with platform shoes. I love the look and effect they add to an outfit but at almost 5'8 with a size 7 foot, I want to avoid looking like I'm sporting a pair of canoes on my feet. Lets face it, it's not a good look. With that said, I really liked the look of these Kurt Geiger flatform trainers and this spotlight shoe of the season really does add a whole new dimension to your standard trainer. I'm all for embracing something new and I must say I do really like the contrast against my white jeans. Are the platform trainers a little too sporty spice for your liking or will you be adding a pair to your wardrobe this Spring? I would love to know your thoughts on the shoe of the season.

I would also like to mention that I have recently published a Spring look book over on my Youtube Channel and would love for you to take a look and let me know what you think. 



  1. Flatform trainers are definitely marmite but I love these, they're actually really chic! Love how you've styled them x

  2. I love flat form trainers and have my eye on some in Zara at the moment. They look so good and I need that. Little bit of extra height! Xo


  3. Oh wowzers, that is one incredible pair of trainers! I'm in love with them x


  4. I agree, the platforms are quite a marmite piece, but I like the stella mccartney ones, and this pair are so good, especially considering they're a fraction of the price!


  5. These look beautiful on your Gem. Personally I love them but would be worried I would break my ankle in them as I am so damn clumsy! xx


  6. Love this outfit. The white jeans look amazing with those shoes. Perfect for Spring!
