I’m not ordinarily a fan of neon colours. As a child of the 80s I feel I’ve had my day-glo days and feel no real need to revisit them, but there’s just something about these Janoski’s I love!
The tiger stripes compliment the neon colours perfectly and make them seem less ‘in your face’. They go with a surprising amount of clothes (I know I say this a lot and maybe they just go with my wardrobe because it is full of crazy colours and styles, but I think even the tamer trainer wearer will find them easy to style). I opted for the black laces to start with, but they also come with neon yellow ones. Maybe I’ll rock these out come summer!
Although I love how these trainers look, they hurt like hell to wear. Apparently Janoski’s are really tight as standard (I’ve been assured they will give with time), but they pinch a lot and should be worn in in short bursts at first. Don’t be tempted to go a size up just so they fit more comfortably. They will then give too much and become loose.
If you fancy giving them a go then check out the Welcome Skate store site for these and many more. The staff are really helpful and know their stuff too!
