My daily style is basic and simple. I usually wear slip on which is black and white sophisticated pattern. I am a big fan of slip on sneakers because it is really quick to put on and take off :)

I am wearing black shoes. They are size 10. I have bought them for 6 months. I wear them everyday. In this video, i learn a new word - trainers, a new phrase - they are a bit too big.

i like to buy the trainers in black i have learned the word trainers

I am not wearing shoes because ı am at home now. I usually wear blue and black trainers. No new words or phrases for me in this video. I've known all of them.
