This is the context of the above quote:
Although the price tag may put off all but the most well-off fashion connoisseurs there are also some cheaper options for those on a budget, but still hoping to join the trainer craze.
Damian Collins, a fashion stylist, recommended a Nike style called the Blazer, which cost £60.
When I Google Damian Collins .. this comes up:
Ok… mate. Who is this random fashion stylist that The Telegraph have got wittering on about creps? People been wearing Blazers for years. I been wearing Blazers for years! 14 year olds been wearing Blazers for years!
Trainer craze my buttocks… creps have always been cool bruv, they just tryna bring them more back in ‘mainstream’ as an alternative to heels. There is no alternative to heels. Just as there is no alternative to a pair of kick ass creps. Jimmy Choo trainers….aiyiii. Just. Say. No.
They always been there, you just need to open your eyes.
I do love the studded Christian Louboutin pair though…
