For girls who don’t want shoes in tampon box colours

I can’t find cool trainers because I refuse to wear them in pink or purple or rancid, pukey pastel. My feet are depressed and my mind is livid. Have you seen the variety that’s out there? We’re not living in 1980 when stores were subjected to your average white Power tekkie with the extra rubber sole on the heel. Or at a push, if you were super-cool, the LA Gear version with little lights in said extra rubber sole section.

There are options. So many. Ones that look like tractors, or space shoes, some that look like socks or toe socks or whatever, most thin as ice and light as air. But as a woman, I can only choose from a select few and even then, I am limited to three colour options. Pink, purple or some pastel junk.
