I do like the Nike shoes but normally I do prefer the Adidas shoes just mostly because I think they look nicer. That's certainly not the case with the Nike Finstar! I loved the way they looked from the first moment I saw them and they where on sale which always helps of course! I bought these for 35 pounds which is a really good price!
I choose these ones because I wanted plain white trainers instead of the full colourful ones and these really cached my eyes. They are simple white with a Nike logo and nothing else. I just loved the simplicity of them and think they really look great. You are a bit casual but more sportive. I trust Nike as a brand and always know that they make good shoes. I had a pair before and they where really comfortable.
I love the way they feel and from the first time I tried them on I could feel they would be very comfortable. They fit really well around my feet without being too tight. You can tell they are a bit flexible when you are walking so they move along with your foot. Also the bottom feels soft and give good support especially around the ankle part.
These shoes look great with just a pair of jeans and really finish the whole casual look. The problem I do have and that's not really the fault of the shoe but more me, is that the shoe is white. I always have so much trouble with keeping it nice and neat. The shoe is very easy to clean luckily but it's more me that's too lazy to actually clean the shoe.
I think I had a bargain with the 35 pounds I spend on these shoe and think I have them for over a year now and they still look good and are very comfortable. I would certainly recommend these shoes and they are from Nike so you can't really go wrong with them.
I was in quite a bad need for a new pair of white trainers. The ones previous had seen its time and was coming close to having conversations with it. With the birthday close by it was a good time to hint to the other half of the things I wanted :-P.
After looking at numerous sport shops and seeing mutli coloured, air bubble filled trainers at such stupidly high prices I was beginning to think I wasn't going to find anything and end up sulking like a 5year old. Luckily we had one more place to go and this is where I found these babies.
The store was Schuh. My trainers are like the ones shown but have two baby blue stripes on the side. they were the first ones to catch my eye. They didn't have colours of the rainbow on them and weren't chunky either. These are a nice slender trainers. I got the Mrs to do the honours and ask the noble employee for a size 8. I sat on the chair like Borat thinking I was king of the Castle.
They arrived and thankfully the full pair was in the box. I have on the odd occassion had to make do with one display trainer that has been worn by everyone and one new one. I undid the lace abit and put the left foot on. Being on the thin and slender side I had a feeling they would be quite uncomfortable as I couldn't see where they would put any padding but to my surprise they were unbelievably comfortable! I tried on the right foot as well and did the customary walking round the store getting the feel for them, stopping now and again to check myself out in them. I looked quite good.
After my little catwalk around the store I said 'She'll take 'em' as the humble Mrs was going to purchase them and off she went to the till. The price for these were £54.99 which considering trainers slightly under this and above I thought to be a very good price. It felt like a combination of the slender Converse meeting the chunky cushioned £100+ nike trainers. I felt proud of myself.
As said above the trainers are very soft and comfortable to wear out and about. I tend to wear these with jeans and they look very good. My jeans tend to be a bit of the long side and due to the trainers being quite low and slender I tend to get them slightly shredded so it won't be for those who like to wear long baggy jeans and to keep jeans unshredded.
The trainers were made from Leather upper and have them in either Black or White with the changes being the Nike tick and the middle part of the side of the trainer.
All in all I highly recommend these trainers. I had had them for about a year now and haven't shown one sign of wearing off or any stitching out of place so they are very sturdy aswell. I liked them so much that I bought a black pair aswell and am thinking of buying a few more, but maybe when the sales kick in lol.
Prices will also vary from £49.99 to £54.99, maybe cheaper on sales, I think £30.
