I love that the sneaker trend is EVERYWHERE. I can’t deny that I have fallen hard for this trend and that they are my go to shoes. I love that they can be worn with literally EVERYTHING. But one trend that I was a little hesitate with this fall was the old school, classic TENNIS shoe, the Adidas Superstar’s and Stan Smith’s. Now, as of 2 weeks ago, I own my very own pair and I love them. It happened while I was doing some last minute trip shopping through Nordstrom. My mom begged me to just slip a pair on and immediately I was sold and I wore them out of the store. Not only are they adorable, but very comfortable as well. Just a side note: I ended up buying a 5.5 when I typically wear a 6.5 in ALL of my other shoes. Even if you are hesitant about these shoes, I do encourage you to at least try them on;)
But with all that being said, I know that this trend is not for everyone. Thankfully it’s just one part of the whole sneaker trend. So I wanted to share some of my other favorite sneaker choices.
My all time favorite sneaker that I’ve been wearing for over 2 years is my pair of Nike Internationalists. Every season I buy a new sneaker, but tend to always go back to his pair. Besides being comfortable, I tend to gravitate towards this brand because of how they look on my feet. When I look down, I like that the toe is a bit slimmer (not snug though) and I love how they hold their shape through the body. These shoes wash up very nicely in the washer.
And course, you can never go wrong with New Balance. They are comfortable, stylish and more than anything have the best color and style choices. Here are a few of my favorites that I found on Nordstrom for the spring. *note: I love buying from Nordstrom because of their 365 day return policy.
Another trend I wasn’t sure about was the high top sneaker. But once I tried them on, I was sold. They can seem hard at first, but just wear them as you would wear a bootie. I love how easy and convenient they are;) Here are some high tops at a great price point.
After all said and done, you really can’t go wrong with any sneaker you choose. As a final note, I wanted to share a tip: Always expose your ankles. It will help make the leg appear longer. I buy a lot of ankle length pants, but for longer ones try cuffing them a couple of times, but keep the cuffs smaller. Have fun and make sure to be creative when pairing sneakers with your outfits. Oh and one more must have shoe, the slip on converse.
