Shoes. Basically, a bag made of cow that you put on your feet to stop you getting muddy feet when you’re walking to the shop to buy crisps. I’m not one of those people who goes out of their way to get nice shoes, I’ve had the same pair of trainers for three years, and even though they’re full of holes and have no grip left on the bottom, they’re really comfy and I hope to keep them for ever (or at least until Gem throws them out). I guess I’m kind of a Northern curmudgeon in that respect, the most I’ve ever paid for a pair of shoes for myself was £12, and that was because all the other shops were shut and there was a funeral or something in an hour.

So, when I get asked to review Base London’s AW15 (Autumn/Winter 2015. Took me a while to work that out. No you shut up) I’m somewhat half expecting the population of Huddersfield to form a lynch mob and burn me in a wicker man. just like Edward Woodward, and absolutely nothing like Nicholas Cage. That said, having had these shoes for a couple of weeks (because I am slow at getting round to writing reviews) I can honestly say that I am converted to the lifestyle of fancy designer shoe wearers.
