Shwings Giveaway

What do you call shoes with wings?

'Shwings'.  Obviously.

We were sent a pair of these very cool footwear accessories from Find Me A Gift to road test.



I picked the  blue metallic ones as I knew they'd go nicely with Ruby's blue sequin baseball boots (secretly hoping I'd get to 'borrow' them for my Converse too).

They simply attach through the laces so will work on any lace up trainers, boots or shoes to add a temporary pizazz to your tootsies.



Mix and match, swap them, double them up...

Ruby wore them on Sunday for the first time and due to our hectic schedule, they were certainly put through their paces.  We were up bright and early and on the 8.30 train to London to see the film preview of Sammy's Great Escape (you should go see it at half term, it's brilliant).  After face painting, balloon modelling and general popcorn stuffing, it was off to China Town.  We popped into the Chinese Centre to check out their New Year celebrations, then we strolled through China Town and stopped for lunch.

My shoes are better than your shoes, ner ner na ner ner

After that, it was off to the Natural History Museum to see the dinosaurs, before the long journey home.

After about a million steps, escalators, on and off tubes and trains all day, the Shwings were holding their own.  I smiled to myself every time I heard passers-by comment 'cool shoes' or people turn around to look at them.

They were a real talking piece with tube travellers asking where we got them from and Ruby obligingly cat walking them for everyone.

Home at last
