XTI // Wedge Trainer at Barratts

Wedge trainers aren't exactly new, at first I didn't understand why an earth you'd want to take the sports wear from the gym and turn it into a fashion hype!? I mean there's plenty of pretty shoes lined up in the shops...they may butcher your feet at times but they look great!? During the sales I started to come round to the idea of wedge trainers. I spotted a few designs on the high-street, hit the shops to find that not only did they lack quality but they were a lot less comfy then some of my sky scraper heels!? Surely there had to be some comfort out there.
While browsing Barratts offerings I spotted these babies from XTI, a brand I hadn't stumbled across before. They were and still are reduced, along with an added 20% off code now advertised on the Barratts website. My wedge trainers arrived incredibly quick, while delivery was free. Already impressed I couldn't wait to try them on before wearing them as much as I can over the past almost two weeks.
So what makes them so special? Comfort. Normally with any wedges and heels I have to wear them around the house before I even dare the shortest of outings with them. Despite being a UK4, they fit a UK3 perfectly. They hold my narrow foot in place, they're cushioned, I almost feel as if I'm bouncing. While having weight to them, they're incredibly light and easy to walk in at just 3 inches high. The triple Velcro fastening won't be to everyones cup of tea, but it sure makes it easier to take them on and off while out shopping.

  2. I was the same as you, I didn't get it right away. Now I love them though, sadly they don't do my size anywhere here. In fact, they haven't really made it out here yet really. Sure they will soon enough though. Yours look great! :)

  5. These look amazing! I've been after some wedge trainers for ages but I have been struggling to find a pair with my tiny feet. Even the size 3s are usually too big so I am gutted as these are really nice :)

  7. Love em. Couldn't wear them though. My orthotics will only fit in normal trainers. Which is why I am lame and always wear trainers instead of pretty shoes otherwise my feet go inwards and the pressure on my ankles means I can walk like.. ten steps. D: So totally glad trainers are becoming trendy XD
