Ankle boots - Aldo

Still not found a pair of knee high boots yet but found another pair of ankle boots by Aldo. Good colour contrast with the black colour of the Brompton.

I have been looking for a new bike bag and I came across the Superdry Japanese clothing company this week while web surfing. Turns out there is a huge store recently opened on Regents Street in the West End. I love this bag. It is sturdy, not too big, a wide strap for carrying over the shoulder a good deep pocket on the outside and one on the inside. It comes in lots of colour combinations just like Bromptons. Oh yes, it is vinyl and would stand a good shower, but not a heavy downpour for a long time, despite the name. Best of all at £39.99 it is cheaper than a bike messenger bag. I think I am moving away from traditional bike messenger bags for now. I end up carrying too much stuff and weighing myself down. I have been using my Brompton pannier a lot this year but again this is a very large bag and I would prefer to just keep it for shopping. I have thought again about the Ortileb Brompton bags but I find the high price off putting because I like to change my bags so often. (Just like my footwear.) I don’t want to pay that much for a bag that I know I will not be using in a year’s time.
