New In ♥ Ugly Shoes ♥ Gucci Flashtrek High-Top Sneakers ♥

You may have noticed by now my certain penchant for ugly shoes. The bolder, the better.I was drawn to the Gucci Flashtrek as soon as they popped up in the visuals last year. I even went to their flagship store while in Paris but hey didn't even know when they were going to hit the stores back then...
A few weeks ago I tried the metallic pink and green version in New York, but I thought the colorway looked too much like the one of my Triple S, especially since they're low top.

So I took some time to think about the purchase and bought the black high-top Flashtrek. Hiking boots are going to be huge this winter and if I can get the comfort of sneakers and the trendiness of hiking boots in just one pair of shoes, who am I to say no? 
Plus I have to admit that seeing they were selling out in many sizes on Gucci website made me buy them even readily. I got them on Net a Porter because my size wasn't available on Ssense, with a 1,5% cashback, which increased to 4 % just two days later... Nevermind...
Talking about size, they run true to size. I have them in 40 and they fit perfectly.
I'm wearing them with oh so OTM biker shorts from Asos( thank you Ellie for the tip!) but I can totally see myself wearing them with flirty lace skirts or scarf print leggings, like these.
I'm putting several links at the end of the post so you can shop them at different shops and in other styles and colors as well.
