After my 17 mile jaunt in trainers, I had a large blister on my right foot. I consulted daughter.1 on this, and she thought that maybe my 20 year old trainers are ripe for replacement. Looking at them, I can indeed see that they're rather worn, as are two other pair that I have. It's so difficult to throw away things that seem to be working fine.
The walking boots I bought over the internet were a success, so I thought that I could probably repeat that with trainers, so I went to the Sports Direct web site and had a look. I bought two pair of size 11 trainers for £20 including delivery; one has Velcro fastenings, which I rather like, and the other pair has a quite snazzy look to them. Will they fit? Well, even if they don't, I'm only £20 down. But I think they will.
