Fab Find: My Favourite Winter Sneakers

I can’t rave enough about these hi-top sneakers from Converse because they are EXTREMELY comfortable and very warm. They’re leather, so they look more polished than the canvas options. Their white soles and toe boxes are iconic, Modern Retro, and add a crisp and prettier touch to the sneaker. They create a tailored fit on the foot despite the size of your ankles, because you can manipulate the width with the laces.

They look streamlined and hip, and work well with cropped pants and jeans. I’ve also worn them with midi dresses and hosiery. They are sufficiently roomy for wider feet, and will accommodate an orthotic if you go up half a size. They run true to size, and work well with socks and knee-highs.

The best part about these hi-tops is their fleece linings, which are super soft and keep your feet toasty warm. The leather is weatherproof, and the soles are grippy and stable on frozen sidewalks.

I was walking around in below freezing temperatures with ice and snow in Salt Lake City for two weeks last month, and these hi-tops are the bomb. I take them along when I see my Dad in the Netherlands in colder weather, and they’re fabulous in the Seattle rain too. Simply wipe them down to keep them clean, or use Oxi Clean on the soles.

I have three pairs of these Winter hi-tops and I’m not opposed to getting more, because they have become a wardrobe essential. I got the black pair about a year and half ago, loved them and got the off-white pair a few months later. This year I bought the cream pair with a watermelon stripe, which work well with a watermelon Furla and new watermelon specs. All three pairs are workhorses, and the most comfortable shoes in my wardrobe. These are 20,000 step city shoes.

There are more variations in colour and style as seen in this collection. Remember that the hi-tops are leather and have fleece linings, and that’s what makes them special and a cut above regular Converse hi-tops. None of the styles have side zippers for easy access, so you have to tie and untie the laces every time. But the most recent pair I got has a hiking boot hook feature at the ankle, making pulling them on and off a little easier and faster.

My favourite sneakers of all time.

Beautiful.

Kate Middleton appeared on The One Show this week to talk to young people about staying safe online.

The Duchess of Cambridge made an appearance alongside her husband, Prince William, to talk about their cyber bullying campaign as part of Anti-Bullying week. They hope to encourage children to spot signs of online bullying with the help of the Kids Online Wellbeing app, which aims to educate young people about how to stay safe on social media.

The couple spoke to hosts Matt Baker and Alex Jones about the work they are doing.

Prince William said: ‘You are creating a practical, powerful tool to help children use their smartphones and social media with confidence and with safety. I am so proud that this has sprung out of the Cyberbullying Taskforce work.

‘It’s now important that our technology partners get right behind the app to make sure all children can benefit. We’re counting on all of you.’

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a stunning turquoise dress by one of her favourite designers – Emilia Wickstead – and teamed it with a pair of black heels.

Eagle-eyed fans noticed that it isn’t the first time that we’ve seen Kate in the dress. She is known for recycling her outfits, and she first wore it back in 2014 when she touched down in New Zealand as part of a royal tour.

The couple opened up about why they decided to get involved with the anti-cyber bullying initiative, with William revealing: ‘I saw that my friends and peers were seriously worried about the risks of the very powerful tools we were putting in our children’s hands.

‘For too many families, phones and social media shattered the sanctity and protection of the home.

Talking about his work with mental health charities, he added: ‘I met families who had suffered the ultimate loss.

‘For too many, social media and messaging was supercharging the age-old problem of bullying, leaving some children to take their own lives when they felt it was unescapable.’
