French Fancy – sneakers to fall for

The vagaries of spring (read: floods’n’mud) have nuked our white sneaker addiction - seriously, how do you get the laces clean?

In our desire to keep a spring (sorry) in our step and smiles on our faces, we’ve turned to seasonal stalwarts WJ French, whose colourful trainer collection we’ll be teaming with jeans right now and a floaty spring dress in the weeks to come.

Also, is it just us, or have we all forgotten the absolute luxury of getting actually fitted for something, by a real live person, as opposed to buying shoes online, realising they don’t fit, and forgetting to send them back?

Honestly, take five, sit down – have WJ French do the (ahem) legwork.
