Last week Toban posted about her new trainers from NoBull. I checked the site and fell for their Watercolour Floral colour way, and since I was looking to add another pair of sneakers to my footwear collection, I placed an order.

The shoes arrived yesterday, and I tried them on right away and wore them the balance of the evening. I wore them again today, all day, including a 2 hour urban ramble (sidewalks and paved trails.) I think they may just have become my favourite shoes!

Review: They run TTS. There was lots of room for a thick athletic sock, however I replaced the very thin innersole with a green Superfeet innersole (my go to for almost all my footwear) and it made for a perfect barefoot fit. They are so nicely finished inside that there has been no rub or discomfort after 12 hrs wear (including the walk.) They are a flat, low profile shoe with a stiff sole (not cushiony like a running shoe - so be warned.) They would be an excellent cross-fit or lifting shoe! What I like most (besides the signature floral design) is the roominess across the forefoot, without sacrificing a snug heel.

DS#2, home for the weekend, and in need of replacements for his ratty Converse decided that if I liked them, he would like them too - and ordered a pair in Midnight Floral!

Thank you Toban!
