When you’re on your daily commute, what’s your transport of choice? Car, bus, taxi? When you have a short journey of 2 miles or less why not consider having a good WALK??
The Scottish Government’s Greener Together initiative has a new campaign called #walktaework which is encouraging everyone to walk to work, particularly if the journey is two miles or less. It’s all part of making Scotland a better place to live. Being a Personal Shopper in Edinburgh and walking a lot for my job, I can’t support this campaign enough and what better way than to do it in Satisfashionable style.
In this blog post I’m going to give you a few of my satisfashion.co.uk favourite footwear options to make the #walktaework look that much better. This initiative couldn’t have come at a better time with trainers taking a centre stage in the fashion world!
I love a good pair of Converse, and now that they have been bought over by Nike, they have been reinvented with a comfy sole that is perfect for a great walk to work. Dresses and converse work so well so why not give it a go?
Converse from Office – £59.99 for Hi Tops and £54.99 for Lo.
Another option I love for my walk to work is the Nike Juvenate. It comes in an array of colours and patterns and is fully collapsible so can be tucked away in your bag easily once you hit the office. The Nike Juvenate is like walking on air in comfort stakes.The patterned style would look great if you are wearing a block colour outfit to really add a great fashionable twist.
Nike Juvenate – £71.99 from Office.
My final choice for a Satisfashionable #walktaework would have to be a pair of New Balance, my favourites are patterned or bright pop of colour, to really add impact to any work outfit.
New Balance – £59.99 from Office.
I cannot recommend enough walking to work and of course, definitely doing it in satisfashion.co.uk style.
It’s not just about the new trainers but walking really has so many benefits such as:
• Walking is healthy, free and can be easy to fit into your day!
• Leave the car today, get some fresh air and take down your stress levels
• Choosing to walk for shorter journeys is a move towards feeling fitter and happier
• Walking can relieve stress, boost your mood and clear your head
