The Reebok Easy Tones I will admit are well designed, after all they are marketed at women and overall, if its aesthetically pleasing we'll take one. In every colour. But sweet baby Jesus what in the hell were Sketchers thinking?! Reebok design a good looking fashionable work out shoe, and Sketchers come up with what can only be described as Dinner Ladies trainers off the market down the road. Really Sketchers? This was the best you could come up with? The best though is the price, the trainers are £90 and the flip-flops are £35. I have an irrational loathing for flip-flops as it is, this just sealed the deal. The Shape Ups look like something even the Spice Girls would have rejected in the 90s, I know what I'm talking about here. Not only did I own my very own pair of gold Spice Girls inspired platform shoes, I also owned white and silver glitter Sketchers. I know what you're thinking. 'just...why?' Two words: Britney Spears.
The £90 rubber and plastic nightmare from the disturbed minds at Sketchers
I don't even have to explain this it's so offensive.
My best friend and I have discussed many times the irrational panic that you get the first day you go on the beach on holiday and you realise you're going to have to get up from your beach towel and walk, yes, WALK from your towel to the sea. Yep, go on, walk those 10 metres past people you will most likely never ever see again in your life, in a bikini you haven't worn for 12 months. That's the moment when you think you probably wouldn't have minded buying yourself a pair of Reeboks after all....
