My husband has been trying to get me into a pair of tennis shoes for years. And I actually mean 5 solid years, because that’s how long we’ve been together.
My last pair of sneakers were purchased in 2009 and I clearly remember having one preference – the cheapest. I bought this pair for my occasional fitness goal throughout the year, but to be honest, I prefer workouts you can do barefoot.
The collection of shoes in my closet revolves around heels and boots. Some of those heels being practical and others being more of a collector’s item. Each pair has a home in the box they came in, nicely stacked on the floor of our closet – it’s an OCD issue when it comes to my investments.
I know the fashion sneaker craze has been around for a while and according to the who’s who in the industry, sneaks are now ok for work with pencil skirts, boyfriend jeans for groceries and jumpsuits for lazy weekends.
I would have never guessed, but it got me thinking.
Is it time to answer my husband’s plea and buy a pair of sneakers?!
ShopStyle activated this thought today when their daily email highlighted a sale on various designer sneaks. If Valentino is down with this athletic trend, I guess I can cave.
Of course, my basic 7.5 size is sold out on almost all the good sale styles, so I turned to Zappos to save the day. Here are my favorites:
L.A.M.B Perfect Silver/Rose Gold
Does Gwen do no wrong?
MICHAEL Michel Kors Allie Trainer
I am actually outfit planning with these.
A little crossover action I could handle for sure.
Reebok Lifestyle Classic Nylon Wild
And of course I need to consider leopard print.
So, should I take the sneaker plunge? Maybe pigs do fly.
Cheers and TGIF.
