I'm wearing black now in a 8 size. I learned how can buy a shose.thanks

I'm wearing blue shoes with a small bow. They are quite comfortable.
Usually I'm wearing sport shoes, as trainers(this a word that I just learned).
The size of my shoes is 37.
I think this is a good task, but I know that I have to practice more.

I have got black trainers in size 11. they aren't comfortable because they are a bit too small.
In this section, I learned how can express size of shoes. In another side, I learned to use the article "in" before size and color of shoes!!

Hello who read my comment. I like good footwear. I want to buy new shoes or any footwears every season, but it is not always possible

I m wearing now black sandal in 10 size,they are not too big and small they are fit to me.
I got this lesson some useful phrases when you are talking about shoes it's color and size.

my shoes size is 10. I usually wear balck, comfortable shoes. but when i take a walk , i wear sneakers.
I love sandals very much and I try to wear them in home.

I likes black trainers. I'm usually buy size 8. I always get the colour of trainers that I want.

I’m not wearing shoes now because I’m on bed trying to sleep but usually l prefer trainers really they are comfortable

I'm wearing white sneakers. I knew all these phrases but hadn't practice with them.

I'm wearing a pair of pink plastic slippers now because it is in summer and I'm at home. I always like to wear trainers because they are light and comfortable in daily life. I have a pair of blue trainers, the bottoms are very soft. You know I've bought them for my son initially but his feet were fatter than the bottoms. Now they are mine, but a bit too big for me.
trainers, a bit too big are the phrases learned from the conversation. And other words, such as, slippers, sandles are learned in comments of other people.
