I'm wearing black trainers in a size 39 it's very comfortable for me

I'm wearing brown shoes in a size 41, it's very well for me


I am wearing black shoes in a size 9

I'm wearing black shoes in size 36. They fit me very well.

I'm wearing the slippers now, because I'm in my home. They are white and blue, with a pattern in the shape of a red heart.

I learned a phrase: "a bit too big" Thanks

I don't have trainers but I have sneakers with 3 white strips on it. It cost me around €20.

I am not wearing my shoes right now but I have black Nike sneakers.
I learned how to ask about size and the phrasal verb "try on".

Do you want to try them
Do you have these in red
I will have a look for you
