What springs to mind when we mention the name Andy Warhol?
A colourful Marilyn Monroe print?
It’s time to talk about my love for Dr. Martens boots. It all began when I was in primary 5. I had to have the classic black 8-eye boots and I wore them with everything. I mean everything. To school with my uniform, to the school disco with my polka dot shirt dress, to family parties and basically everywhere I went. Funnily I’m now in my 30s and I still wear a polka dot shirt dress, it’s just a bit bigger.
The Chuck Taylor has been the world’s most loved trainer for almost a century. And that’s not set to change. In what was perhaps the biggest sneaker news of the year, Converse released the Chuck Taylor II, an updated version of everyone’s favourite trainer. The first four colour pack featured the classics – red, black, white and blue. Now Converse have unveiled the Chuck II in a limited edition shade called Volt. It’s a bright neon shade inspired by the Lunarlon technology that the new Chuck II features.

July 2015 saw the launch of the hotly-anticipated Converse Chuck II, the biggest update to the Chuck silhouette since its initial release back in 1917. With the success of the improved classic, the brand seems to be on a mission to update their iconic plimsolls with new and improved technology for next level comfort and style; ladies and gentleman, meet the brand spanking new Converse Jack Purcell.
Yes, that’s right – summer’s over friends; the signs are everywhere. It’s getting colder, rainier and we’re turning on that central heating (or at least discussing it with a sad shiver). What dark thoughts. It’s okay though, every cloud and all that – we all get to refresh our wardrobes. Treat yourself to new shoes, boots, trainers and the most fun purchase of all – wellies. In particular, Havaianas wellies.
