Good morning and happy monday, hoddlers
What a way to end the season, eh? Tottenham crushed Norwich 5-0, we saw beautiful goals from Dejan Kulusevski and Heung-min Son, Harry Kane got another and Spurs finished fourth.
And hey - Sonny won the Golden Boot! Take a look a this:
Sonny’s new footwear has your hoddler-in-chief thinking. Why doesn’t everyone own a pair of gold kicks?
Adding gold to any garment is a power move, but on shoes? Doubly so. It’s like walking on gold wherever you go. Just take a look at Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry:

But I think this gold-shoe trend can go beyond the pitch or the hardwood. Take a look at these spiky ones.
Because those are a great option for men for whom gold simply won’t make them stand out enough. The spikes add that extra cool and danger factor that smooth gold shoes just don’t have. I would caution those wearing this shoe though to perhaps not play footsie on any dates.
If you’re looking for something a little more casual, how about these gold Nike trainers?
I personally would recommend wearing these with gold socks and gold trousers, because you can’t have too much gold in your ensemble at any given point in time.
And they are a little more understated than the spiky gold shoes, too. Though these ones have laces (gold laces). I’m not sure how effort I would want to put into slipping on my golden shoes.
What about gold shoes with Velcro straps? Are those a thing?
