Fashion Hot Thing: Prada Red Line shoes

WHEN PRADA launched its urban sporty range earlier this year, it was done without fanfare or fuss. A metal- encased look-book filled with pictures of the clothes and shoes simply appeared at the office and, apart from a few "oohs", "aahs" and an "isn't their red stripe label just like those Dymo things we used as kids?", it was filed away as "Prada goes London street- style" without further ado.

I wore trainers, always plain white, whether going to the Groucho Club, while living in London, or walking up Grasmoor, while living in Lakeland.
