How do you express your creativity? Is it through your trainers?

    Radio 4. My beloved Radio 4. Really scraping the barrel today.

    'Sneakers' as a symbol of masculine success. 'Sneakers' as an expression of individuality. 15 minutes of this ker-rap from assorted fashion (and I hesitate to use this term) journalists.

    Now I like shoes. I have more than one pair. I wouldn't wear just ANY shoes. But an expression of creativity? No. Not unless you make them yourself perhaps.

    I make a modest foray into personal creativity with painting my nails and my hair. But trainers that are mass-produced by Chinese workers paid s o d all? No.

    Must be a slow news day. About as relevant to most of the listeners as which childs dummy is the best for sleep.

    What sort of people do you think wear sneakers to work?

    Perhaps for the commute to work, e.g. many women change shoes when they get to work, especially if using public transport....

    But I think Steve Jobs was a class 1 @hole....so perhaps not a role model....Bill Gates and Zuckerberg probably a better example....

    And don't forget the converse sneakers that all cool 20somethings wear as an alternative fashion statement (thereby actually showing their own conformity)

    There is NOTHING attractive or interesting about these items of footwear. Nothing.

    Please wear proper shoes unless you are a PE teacher.

    The proposition was theycan be a symobol os success and individuality rather than a role model or meeting your approval.

    And don't forget preschool children wear them;however, the proposition is not that all people who wear trainers are individuals (or creative or successful).

    I'll be wearing trainer in 15 minutes for my run. Then I'll take them off and wear shoes...

    ... because I'm an adult.

    Oh don't be ridiculous. I expect if you owned trainers you'd wear overshoes to keep them clean. They are meant to look cool so I wouldn't bother if I were you.

    Your definition of success and your definition of individuality, not mine. Your approval, not mine. Success without integrity is hollow (my opinion); it's not nice to denigrate others who disagree with you....now, where's that ignore button?
