I'm not quite sure about these trainers. On the one hand, as a short girl, I appreciate the extra lift provided by the small wedge heel, but on the other, there's something rather orthopaedic about them that really puts me off. That may just be the effect of the all-white leather, of course. These are also available in black leather with white soles, and they look a lot less like the kind of shoes you'd only wear because you had to in that colour. If you think they're just fine in the white, though, you can pick up a pair for £55 at Topshop.
