…or trainers, as we Brits know them!
Sneakers, trainers, kicks, creps, doesn’t matter what you call them – I LOVE THEM!
I have always loved trainers (I will use the UK term, being a Brit myself) ever since I can remember. I can’t even pinpoint why, really. I was basically semi-feral as a child, and spent a lot of time outside in the garden. Trainers made my outdoor activities that much easier – they’re good for mucking around in, comfortable, good for running in, climbing trees, riding bikes, kicking boys….
When I got to secondary school, it came to my attention that trainers were Very Important. You had to have the coolest trainers, otherwise you were basically pure scum. A social pariah in own brand trainers. Heaven forbid I had anything less cool than Reebok trainers – I would just die. I remember my Mum buying me a really nice pair of New Balance trainers – they were so comfortable and I did secretly really like them – but because they weren’t Nike or Adidas I was a little bitch about it, so much so that I got a new pair of Nike trainers for Christmas that year!
Now I am not a brand snob when it comes to clothes at all. I will wear whatever I like regardless of how much it costs or what make it is – as long as I like it, then I could not give a shit about what anyone else thinks. However, when it comes to trainers, I just love the brand names. I had a small cull of trainers last year because I had SO many pairs, and I managed to get it down to 14 pairs. Those 14 pairs are a mixed bag of brands – Nike, Adidas, Converse, Fila, New Balance, Vans – but even having said that, it’s not so much the fact that they’re a brand name that makes me love them so much.
I just love the way they look, the way they feel – they are so comfortable, they don’t hinder me in any way whatsoever. High heels inevitably hurt – whether it’s blisters or pinching or just aching from having your feet and legs shoved into unnatural positions. Trainers never betray me in this way! I used to spend all day at school in heels, all day at work in various offices in heels – heels look great but they are uncomfortable and painful and they can sod off into the sun. Plus you look like a twerp hobbling in heels that are legitimately crippling you. Stop it. Put some trainers on. They’re brilliant.
To my mind, trainers go with everything! I wear them with jeans, leggings, skirts, dresses – I have smart trainers, for nice occasions, and scruffy ones for everyday wear. I have shit ones for taking the bins out, I have sturdy ones for stomping on things (people) with. I have sparkly ones and soft fabric ones and multi coloured ones – the list is endless. And I always want more!
So it’s just as well that rather a lot of my fans and followers are also into trainers as well! I will put on a pair of heels for a session, but invariably I have kicked them off within about ten minutes of arrival. I love my sessions with one of my regulars who just LOVES trainers as much as I do. He requests I bring a few pairs and I model each of them in turn, allowing him to worship them and then trampling all over him. IT IS SO SATISFYING. If I am comfortable, then my session is going to go a hell of a lot better than if I’m not. Simple!
I recently ran a poll over on my Twitter, asking which trainers people preferred – Converse, Adidas Superstar, Nike Air Max or Fila Disruptors. Interestingly, the Converse just nailed it – when these happen to be probably my least favourite out of those options! I far prefer Nike Air Max – which came a close second – far more comfortable, a classic shape, the ultimate shoe of my youth. But it’s good to know which particular brand is more popular within Fetish Clips – keep an eye out for more Sneaker Fetish clips in my clip store! It is always pleasing when something I genuinely enjoy is also lucrative professionally; although these days I’ve found that when I focus on the things that I personally enjoy within my work, then the results are much more genuine and ultimately make me more money.
You can order a custom video requesting a particular pair of trainers – if I don’t have them, you can buy them for me and have them sent to me. I always appreciate those who feed and share my trainer addiction! Contact me directly either via the contact form on the homepage, or over on TiffanyNaylor.com to discuss options for this.
