Sneaker obsession

A trend I have been noticing more and more lately. Sneakers with everything.. I mean the only outfit you can’t wear sneakers with is a bikini but everything else is fair game.

Now as much as I love the look of heels I DO NOT like the feel of them. For an every day shoe I would prefer to wear sneakers, preferably my converse sneakers. Since I was 14-15 years old I have been wearing them, I didn’t care if it was pouring or snowing or 100 degrees out.. I was wearing my chucks dammit!

It was a trend I never really grew out of, even throughout college. I would try to wear other sneakers, but the good ole chucks were always my favorite. This trend has sky rocketed, girls are wearing them with their wedding dresses, ball gowns, choosing them over a sky high pair of stilettos, it is endless.

In my first post on the blog I wore my converse sneakers, walking around NYC it was a good choice. I have made the mistake of walking in 5 inch heels before, it is not a wise one. If you are the type of girl who can wear heels every day, that’s great. I’m not, and I bet more than half of you out there or reading this aren’t either.

High top vs low top: I have both in a few different colors. I tend to always wear my black low top converse, I do own a white pair and a pink pair too. Recently, I purchased the Chuck Taylor 2‘s, and THEY ARE SO NICE. Beyond excited for the cooler weather since I will probably wear them with everything, which I’m sure you’ll see on my blog in the future. I also have a red high top converse pair which I like to wear to hockey games. Yes the arena is cold but the cold never bothered me anyway…

Let’s snowball this trend shall we? Athleisure is part of this sneaker trend and having a bit of a sporty style I really love that I don’t get the stares of wearing sneakers any more. For some time now I have been covering the Nike Roshes. I don’t work out regularly, even though I should, so there was no reason per day for me to own these.

Now I do.

There are so many different types of sneakers that you can wear. High top, low top, slip on, running, training, air Jordan’s, nikes, whatever your little hearts desire.

Another trend that is beginning to sky rocket is the old school vans sneaker look. Now Kendall Jenner rocked this look:

Buy the Van’s Old Skool Sneaker.

I mean who doesn’t like a laid back skater style? It is all about comfort, which is a word I will use repetitively since it is a highly important part of my style. Again, I rocked these shoes when I was younger so I am very happy to see this trend come back.

Adidas sneakers. I mean these were an 80’s classic… and their back again! Very easy to incorporate these from dressy to casual as well. Take a look at some of these celebrity inspired looks:

A sneaker I highly recommend investing in is the slip on sneaker. Sometimes we’re lazy, most of the time I am. So it’s just easier to slip these shoes on and run out the door because your “fashionably late.” I got these vans slip on sneakers last winter for a vacation. I can pair them with just about anything.. a dress, jeans, workout gear because I’m “running to the mall”, sweats, etc. I truly appreciate these when I’m shopping. It’s a lot easier to slip your sneakers back on after trying on 100 different outfits and 200 different shoes.
