Now spring is (allegedly) here, my mind turns to summery shoes and, ergo, to these Bensimon gym shoes. I’ve ordered myself a pair in grey as then I can wear them with navy and black trousers (and my ubiquitous jeans). I love the elasticatedness of them, so much better than laces. They remind me of a pair I had when I went on a school trip to Brittany, aged 12, which were black and elasticated with little badges all over them (hey, it was the eighties!). I have good memories of that trip (strawberry ice cream and hot dogs in baguettes – why are all my memories food related?!) and even better memories of those shoes. Here’s to a trip down memory lane.

  1. I’ve been looking for some like this too! the last pair pictured reminds me of a pair I had as a kid (from the gap!!) that I lost in a sandbox somewhere. 😀
