Hi guys! How are you? I hope you’re well, and if you’re not then I’m sending hugs your way! I don’t often share style posts on here, although I post quite a few ‘outfit of the day’ posts over on my Instagram. But these trainers are so beautiful, I had to show you them! They are the Adidas Cloudfoam QT Racer trainers, from Brantano.
I was very kindly sent these trainers by Brantano for review purposes, but as always, all opinions are truthful and entirely my own.
I’ve been wanting a pair of trainers like this for literally over a year! I love black trainers with a flash of colour or pattern. Ones which are smart enough to wear with jeans and not look like you’re going for a run (which I very definitely am not…!) I wear a lot of ballet pumps and a lot of boots, but I wanted something in between the two. Something waterproof and sturdy, but more suitable for all seasons (boots are usually left behind in the summer months!) So the Adidas Cloudfoam QT Racer trainers were the perfect fit for me 🙂
I have to admit, it was the pattern that drew me to these. They could have been any brand, I just loved the pink, purple and blue floral pattern! Since pink and purple are my favourite colours, I wear a lot of them – so these trainers should go with most of my wardrobe! I kind of wish they didn’t have the black stripes (they are a kind of rubberised finish), but that’s what you get with Adidas trainers.
I’ve worn these with leggings and a dress (as you can see!) and also with black jeans so far. I liked them with both 🙂
The first thing that struck me is how light they are – they are literally like picking up a feather! They’d be amazing for taking on holiday as they’d take up so little of your luggage weight allowance. They are a nice, streamlined shape with a fairly narrow toe. The soles are white and really thick and bouncy.
Oh my days! These trainers feel like walking on clouds – seriously! They are so soft, light and bouncy. Not that I can run any more, but I imagine they would be great for running in – super light.
They are more narrow at the toe end than any trainers I’ve worn before. It makes them look less clumpy, but you can feel the tightness around your toes. It is not uncomfortable, just something I was aware of. You can adjust the laces to give you a bit more width around the sides too.
Where to Find Them
My trainers were from the Womens Shoes section of the Brantano website here (although they may have them in store too, depending on stock). They cost £48 – although I think Brantano currently have 20% off.
