Very good shoes!
19 Oct 2012
Initially I was sceptical. Tech onix is not a colour I have ever come across before even though I did art at school and like to dabble in watercolours every now and then. Because I am very much a boring character when picking out shoes I generally stick to the conventional black or white...tech onix very much looks like black from the pictures, would you not say? Yes it definitely looks black I concluded, so I added to my basket.
I took the plunge and eagerly awaited my tech onix coloured shoes arrival. I began thinking whether I had any other tech onix coloured items in my wardrobe to compliment the tech onix on the shoes...I have many black t-shirts as well as a black polo-neck with a faint silhouette of a sausage dog on the front in what I would describe as a shiny tech onix coloured material.
Three days later the shoes arrived. I can categorically say that tech onix is blue...a kind of dark, navy blue. Well let me tell you I was holding back tears at this point, delusional and sweaty. I thought it best to put down my mug of hot tea and crusty baguette cheese mayonnaise sandwich before someone got hurt. It seemed a good idea to run myself a hot bath with plenty of fragrant matey bubble bath and what they call Christmas mist scented candles. I don't like using Christmassy things in September but it needed to be done. They smell like pure cinnamon.
When I had calmed down I realised that I had nothing to lose by trying them on and the more I looked at them the more tech onix was growing on me. Furthermore I had noticed that they had an extremely soft and towel like lining to the interior which was very inviting.
These tech onix trainers are the comfiest I think I have ever had. A few years ago I re-mortgaged my house to buy a pair of y-3's and I have never come across another shoe that has rivalled their comfort and quality since. These are very much up there and have expanded my wardrobe as well as the colour spectrum. I am now looking for other tech onix coloured items of clothing to truly do them justice.
To summarise this brief review I can very much recommend these trainers...5 stars Adidas!
