Sneakers aren’t’t for everybody. Some women prefer to stick with heels or a cute pair of flats and leave the sneakers for the gym. Ever since I can remember, I have always loved a cute sneaker. In high school I would clean my sneakers weekly and ever so gently line them up along the wall in my bedroom. Oh and please, do not step on my new shiny white air force ones (fresh out of the box) because we were going to have words. Yep it was that deep to me. Now days I would say I only own maybe five pairs of sneakers compared to my 25 plus pair back then. Sneakers have evolved so much since my high school years. Whatever kind of style that you like, low top, high top, plain ole white sneakers or sneakers with designs, there is something out there that will be sure to tickle your fancy. I also love the many ways that you can be creative with the way you style your sneakers. Wearing my sneakers with pencil skirts has to be my favorite way to style them. It’s the perfect way to be tomboy chic. Check out below why I love each sneaker shown and how I would pair them with items in my wardrobe.
OK I’m not even going to lie; I was not hip to Huarache’s until I heard my brother-in-law raving about a pair that he wanted so badly. This shoe is comfy and stylish. This is the perfect shoe to pair with a pencil skirt or a skater with a big over sized sweater and statement necklace.
I thought I was completely done with Air Force Ones. I vowed to never ever buy another pair as long as I live. You know they say “never say never” right? I have gone back and forth about my feelings towards these sneakers for months now. I have finally decided that could totally rock these. They would be perfect with skinny jeans and an over sized leather motorcycle jacket.
Let me tell you, my love for Pharrell is real! Everything about his style is appealing to me. So when I found out that he would be collaborating with Adidas, I had to check out the line. Low and behold he created some Stan Smith (you guys know how much I love my Stan Smith's) sneakers in new fun bright colors that are amazing to say the least! So I’m asking myself, now do I need another pair in a pretty new color?
This is her second collaboration with Reebok on a sneaker. Although her first pair was my favorite, this pair is just as cute plus they glow in the dark. I get totally excited about that kind of stuff! I am a huge fan of anything Ms. Ehasni brings to the table. She is so funky and eclectic. If you don’t know who she is, Google her! This is another shoe that I would rock with a pencil skirt.
Puma is one of those shoe brands that people don’t really write home about. You can take them or leave them. I actually secretly like puma sneakers (Shhh! don’t tell!). Solange Knowles recently did collaboration with the brand and I had to have a pair or the colorful sneakers, which were much like her own personal style. Blush is one of my favorite colors so when I saw this sneaker by designer Sophia Chang, I fell in love. They are so pretty and sleek. They don’t have too much going on so they can be rocked with almost anything. Pair them with some boyfriend jeans and a blazer for a menswear inspired look.
This is probably the most comfortable shoe that has ever touched my foot. I own two pairs of Roshe’s and I plan on purchasing more. This is the perfect sneaker to purchase if you aren’t really a sneaker person. You can wear these with skirts, skinny jeans, and more. I plan on rocking my army fatigue pair with my riding pants and over sized sweaters this fall and winter.
7. Nike Air Max
Air Max sneakers are classic. Nike has come out with several styles as well as color ways of this shoe over the years. I know I’ve owned at least 4 pair in my life time. Although not as comfortable as the Roshe (to me), they are still very much cute. I am a big fan of metallic anything and these shoes are no exception. Pair them with a skater dress and a distressed denim jacket for the perfect look.
So as you can see I really have a love for sneakers! Do you have a favorite pair of sneakers? What are your thoughts on my current faves?
