Shoppers Reckon ASOS Trainers Could Be Marketed By Friends' Chandler Bing

Shoppers Reckon ASOS Trainers Could Be Marketed By Friends' Chandler Bing

Fast-forward to the present day in the real world and it seems somebody at ASOS has decided that people will wear shoes with flames on them.

One shopper pointed out the similarity between the shoes in Friends and the 'Destination chunky trainers in flame print' on Twitter, sharing pictures of the shoes along with the caption: "So is Chandler Bing advertising these for you ASOS or what?"


Evidently it was a great play from ASOS, as the tweet has been liked more than 4,300 times.

One person commented: "Whoever runs this account, I love you."

Another said: "I have never needed a shoe so much before in my entire life."

If you too fancy a pair, they'll cost you £38... though they only seem to go up to size eight, so maybe flame-covered shoes still aren't considered appropriate for grown ups.

What's more, it seems Chandler was right about them being difficult to market too, as the trainers aren't accompanied on the website by the sort of enticing product description you'd expect. Rather, ASOS simply lists some of its key features, which are as follows:

- Lace-up fastening
- Padded for comfort
- Pull tab
- Flame detail
- Chunky sole
- Moulded tread

So if you like your trainers to have laces, flames and a chunky sole, these could be the ones for you (if you're also a size eight or lower). Perhaps you might want to wear them down at the new Central Perk themed cafe at Primark in Manchester?

The cafe opened last week to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the sitcom and is designed to replicate the famous hangout spot.

DISCLAIMER: The cafe does not provide friends, you have to find your own.
