Emily Hodgson and Emilie Riis love sneakers, or trainers, as they’re known in London, but were frustrated by the fact that many of the coolest designs are made in men’s sizes only.

Our reality is surrounded by emojis, a japanese version of the classic emoticons. There are thousands of those little faces, supposedly designed to express each of our “emotions.” I can’t take them seriously.
