“ Brand: Babycham / Type: Trainers „
Most men can pull off a more rugged look quite easily, though it is important to use discretion when choosing the four staple items I recommend to build a proper
The Leather Jacket - Forget the trench-coat and stick to half-length or three-quarter length leather jackets. Leather trench-coats are generally associated with the
goth subset or the like. Whether it is new, or worn - leather looks better when broken in to fit against the shape of your body - ensure that the garment is genuine
leather, and not vinyl or pleather. Nothing says poseur quite like a false leather jacket.
The Leather Boots - While cowboy boots might be overdoing it, leather dress or casual boots can look extremely good when paired with some well-travelled, well-worn
denim jeans. Mark Nason is most likely the best men's designer in this area, with his "Crowbar" styling being a leader of the pack.
The Denim Jeans - Avoid black, grey, or white jeans as well as the typical "work jean" dye. Dark blue or indigo denim jeans with brown or slight charcoal fading are
the real entrants to look for, enhancing and emphasizing a more tumbled look.
The Fitted T's - This one is a bit flexible depending upon your own build, though I strongly recommend wearing clothes that fit more snugly with this type of outfit
unless you are quite out of shape and sorts. Black is the colour of choice, and a screen printed design is acceptable, though not preferable. Plain black or a plain
black with a slight design works best, though navy and dark brown may also fit depending on the colour of your jacket, boots, and jeans.http://www.yalla2shop.com
I was out shopping with a friend one day when I came across some funky trainers by Babycham, I never knew they made shoes at all - to me Babycham is a drink! I was drawn to these trainers as they looked bright and colourful yet comfy and casual, I particularly loved the bold, rainbow, star and heart pattern as I had never seen anything as unique on a shoe before.
These shoes are very funky, as well as the vibrant patterns on a grey fabric upper the laces are a vivid contrasting blue with the inside of the shoe being a lovely shade of purple. The original babycham logo is embroidered on the side in baby pink and the soles remind me of converse as they are the same white non slip rubber. Babycham really went to town on these trainers as even the bottom of the shoe is highly decorated, the sole being made out of purple rubber with stars, flowers, cherries, bolts of lightening and the babycham fawn all patterned on the rubber.
When compared to converse I would say that the soles of these Babycham trainers are a lot thicker, I have jogged in mine and they proved to be extremely comfortable, as comfortable as if I was wearing specialised trainers for running. I have worn these trainers a lot and walked a fair old distance since I've got them yet they don't show any signs of wear, I was half expecting the soles to come away from the shoe or for them to rub my feet red raw!
These trainers are very versatile and I've worn mine with several styles and cuts of jeans as well as leggings and they look fab each time; Babycham trainers are casual but still have that stylish unique edge about them that make then stand out when compared to conventional trainers. Several friends have commented on my choice of footwear and asked me where I got them. I payed under £30.00 for mine and to me they are worth every penny, they look fabulous but still give my feet the comfort that they need. Very good quality, I would definately recommend them, though they are quite a young and modern style so maybe not suited to everyone's taste.
I bought a pair of babychams last year out of Office and found them very comfortable and durable. i wore them constantly and even went on a few mountain walks in them. after a lot of wear they started to let in water so i replaced them with these Babychams. I love the shoes, very comfty and stylish, great for wear with a pair of jeans, cut up trousers in the summer etc. The only thing I would say is that they suit a wider foot and for anyone that has a back problem, and needs to wear a heel these are not for you. also if you like wearing your shoes tightly laced, do no go for these. They will lace but it takes away from the look of the shoes. overall I feel that they are well worth the twenty two quid that I paid for them and I would def recommend.
A few years back, when shopping in tREDS I spotted these shoes called 'Babychams' I think this was mainly due to the bright colours and uniqueness of the shoes appealing to me.
There were many different designs, however I personally went for the more subtly pair which was this grey one with metallic rainbows down the side, I mean subtle compared to the bright orange or bright pink pairs that they had in stock.
The pair that I got were £25 at the time of the purchase, however have recently seen this design on M&M for around £12 and on Amazon for a similar price.
The shoes / trainers themselves had a grey canvas body with a big, wide white rubber toe. The toe also has a pink trim around the far edge, I think this was just to add to the design of it and to make them stand out even more.
On the actual canvas there were little multi coloured motifs, such as stars and rainbows and as they were metallic when they hit the light they became very bright and were slightly sparkly.
The trainer had very wide laces, the sort that remind me with 'skating' trainers and were in a lovely bright turquoise colour. I was also surprised to find that the laces kept this colour and even after going to theme parks and walks in the woods they remained this colour! The tounge is also very wide and although it is hard to see in this photo, the tounge had a design that it sort ot pokes out the top of the shoe. As I have said it is very big, also very padded which makes it comfy and like cushioning on the top of the foot and avoids laces from digging in.
The sole was also made of a rubbery material, with the same colour turquoise as the laces running through it. The sole I found was very easy and comfortable to walk on, it sorted had this 'bounce' when you did walk, which may be due to the thickness of the sole. I find that on some of me other trainers that the sole wears down quickly, however these have now work down as of yet, which is pleasing.
The shoe itself is very comfy and could easily be worn for long periods of time or long walks, without the need to take them off or without them rubbing.
I have also had numerous comments on this shoe, saying how unique and pretty the colours are, so if you are looking for something a little bit different, yet with a name that it still recognisable than I guess you should chose these.
They are avaliable in Uk size 3 - 8 and in most places will cost you around £25.
It all started four years ago, it was my best friend's hen do at Alton Towers. As we were walking around I spotted girl wearing the most gorgeous trainers, they were all sparkly and glittery and I wanted them.
When I got home I made it my mission to find these trainers, I'd noticed that they said Babycham on them and so my search began. I didn't find the exact ones she was wearing but I did find others I liked and so my obsession began.
The pair I'm reviewing now were a birthday present from my boyfriend last year. They are the "Rainbow Stripe" version, sometimes advertised as "Rain", mine are mainly grey marl in colour with a neon coloured print on them. The print is rainbows, hearts, stars, clouds and glasses. I have to admit when I first saw them I didn't really like them a lot, I'm not sure what it was about them but I just didn't think "wow". Now though they are one of my favourites.
The main body of the trainers is grey in colour, and mainly made from cotton jersey fabric. The toe cap is made from white rubber, edged in a bright pink and the heel is a grey patent material. The heel has an embroidered Babycham doe on the outer edge. The visible lining of the trainers is a gorgeous purple material, which has a slight sheen to it.
Each pair of Babycham trainers I have bought has come with two pairs of laces, one thinner pair and a thicker pair. These trainers were no exception and came with a white thin pair and a bright sky blue chunky pair. Most pictures show the trainers with the chunky laces in the bottom eyelets and the thin ones in the other eyelets. I find that there is far too much lace for the trainers this way and having them tucked in my trainers makes them uncomfortable. I just use the chunky pair, which adds more colour to the trainers (if you feel they need it!).
I love the little detail you may not notice at first glance, the trainers have five metal eyelets. Each row is a different colour which co-ordinates with the colours used in the main pattern, three are a star shape and two are heart shaped. The sole of the trainer is a deep purple which matches the lining, it has cute little symbols in the grips such as cherries, hearts, butterflies and of course the Babycham deer.
I find these trainers, incredibly comfortable to wear, the tongue is really padded so you don't get any rubbing on your feet from the laces. I can wear these when I know there will be a lot of walking involved and not worry about getting sore feet. Although they look heavy and chunky, i don't find them to be so when I am wearing them.
When we had the snow earlier in the year, they were great for walking about town as they gripped on the surface really well (and left cute patterned footprints!!). Although they weren't as waterproof as wellies, my feet didn't get particularly wet either.
The other great thing about them is that despite quite a lot of wear in eighteen months, they are still in pretty good condition. The toes do get a little grubby, but I can give them a quick clean with a scourer and washing up liquid which brightens them up again. Because they are grey in colour the rest of them don't really show up dirt that much.
As they were a present I'm not sure how much this pair cost, however most Babycham trainers are about £29.99. This pair is available in black, white, navy and grey. I have seen the white and navy pairs on ebay for £12.95 which is a bargain!! I've also seen the black ones available with velcro straps rather than laces.
