Looking at the selection of clothes I bought during Black Friday I’m starting to think I took the whole thing a bit too literal this year – not exactly the most colourful selection of clothes!
Anyway, the plan was to grab a few bargains for my upcoming trip to Iceland. Some pieces that will keep me warm and dry, look good and will last longer than the trip itself. I decided rather than deal with the high streets, that instead I would see what the virtual high street had to offer and managed to get some items I’m really happy with!
First up are these Vans Sk8-Hi MTE which I featured on another post. For just short of £50, these Mountain Edition Vans feature a premium leather upper treated with Scotchguard, a heat retention layer between the sock liner and outsole and a lug outsole for maximum traction, which are guaranteed to keep my feet warm and dry during my trip away. I had planned to get them anyway so to find them included in the deals was a huge bonus. They also look great on so I’m sure they will be getting plenty of wear through the Winter months and not just for Iceland.
Next was this The North Face beanie. The grey hat is double layered with a fleece lining so will act as a barrier against the cold and keep my head warm. It also fits really well, not too tight or oversized so overall a good purchase.
The next two jackets from Topman and Rains were too good to pass up. I doubt I’ll be taking either away with me but they are sure to get plenty of wear in different circumstances, which brings me on to my final purchase.
The last thing I bought during Black Friday was the Nike Juvenates, which were a bit of an impulse purchase if I’m honest. The Nike Juvenate was a new style for 2015 and is quite similar to the Roshe Run silhouette. The upper is completely collapsible and the sock liner is breathable and provides good support so could potentially be a pair to take away during the Summer, but we will see, I haven’t decided whether to keep them or not just yet.
Did you get any deals during Black Friday?
