    Yes. I doubt anyone but the trainer mafia would know or care. Thought they were going to be bright pink.

    Aha I think they are very nice but yeah taste is subjective.

    The standard blacks ones are a bit boring

    I think it might be an age thing for me, but I've always hated gold. I have quite boring/old fashioned tastes for the most part really. Aside from my blue hair.

    Go for it if you want, but remember that the sizing won't be quite the same as with mens trainers

    It could be a bit narrower and you would probably need a size or two bigger if you were to buy shoes sized in women's sizing. It's different between brands

    My feet are quite narrow in truth, and men's shoes are usually are a bit loose. So I should be okay

    the variation between sizes is as great between different manunfacturers and different types of shoe than any percieved difference in fit between male and female shoes.

    Officially UK sizes are the same for male and female ...

    i can be anywhere between 7 to 9 UK / 41 to 43 european sizing depending o nthe shoe and little to do with it;s supposed gender ...

    part of the stuff that ladies shoes are smaller is down to the fact that shoe sizes are based o nthe bare foot and 'mens' hoseiry is usually thicker than 'ladies'

    I'm sure it's not with every brand but I know that some I've come across have different size charts for men and women, with a mens size equalling a size or wo larger. I also wear mens and womens shoes and there if a differnce in most places. Nike, for example, if I try the same shoes in womens and mens sizing the mens fits but the womens is too small in width, and I have to size up by 1. Similar with British Knights. In New Look and H&M I have to size up 2 sizes for womens to fit in length. It could partly be down to shape, but theres definitely a difference to note between them

    Nike size by american sizes and claim to convert to Uk sizes ...

    how wide your feet and your 'toe shape' can impact on shoe sizes - although toe shape tends to be something that is more addressed in fitting pointe shoes

    But females will know he got that from their section. Plus it's shiny on the gold stripes, which is feminine
