We have been overwhelmed by the response received since earlier this year, when Big Eyes head honcho, Yani, asked our extended Big Eyes fam, you guys, to share your sneakers with us by using the hashtag #BigEyesLittleSoles.
With almost 3,000 snaps now amongst the selection, from your beaters to your box fresh and your OGs to your holy grails, we LOVE feasting our eyes on your crepes and dishing them out for all to drool over. We can’t wait to see more over the next year as the Big Eyes crew continues to grow, but for now, here are our favourite uploads of the bunch from 2012…
Each time we mooch through your #BigEyesLittleSoles uploads, it gets more and more difficult to choose our favourites. We have picked 20 from the bunch this time round, as with nearly 2500 photos now tagged, how could we resist?

A few weeks back I was lucky enough to receive a very British pair of leggings in the post. They didn’t have the Union Jack on them and they weren’t anything to do with the Olympics, they didn’t even come from the UK.
Here’s what the print was:
Being as short as I am, buying leggings is always an issue as they’re either too long, too high waisted, baggy in the wrong areas or just not right.. These however are PERFECT! I decided, what better way to show you how amazing and versatile these leggings are, than to take a few photos of them with different pairs of sneakers…
This isn’t the only pair of print leggings that you can pick up from Australia based Uptights.. head on over to the website and pick up your choice of favourite pair. Which ones will you be buying?
