Sneak Attack

The latest shoe trend to hit the streets is something every fashionista can be enthusiastic about: sneakers! Pull those Adidas, Nikes, Reeboks and Pumas out of your closets, ladies, because they aren’t just for the gym anymore; sneakers just got a serious makeover. Here’s the scoop on this spring’s sneak attack!

Why Should We Embrace The Sneaker Trend?

Above and beyond the fact that they’re trendy, wearing sneakers gives our tootsies the reprieve they need. Sneakers seamlessly marry style with comfort.

Who Can Wear Them?

Uh, hello…everyone! And we mean that in the literal sense: every age, body shape, and style of fashionista can find a pair of sneakers that fits into her wardrobe.

Where and When Can You Don Your Sneakers?

Although we’d like to say “everywhere,” the reality is that sneakers are still considered inappropriate for many office environments. Be sure to check with your place of employment before wearing sneakers for a full day of work. You CAN, however, wear them for a stylish commute!

And otherwise, the options are endless.

Strolling through a weekend Farmers Market? Try putting your sneaks with a leather jacket.

A Few Extra Tips for Wearing Sneakers:

  • Take as much care with sneakers as you would with any other pair of shoes you love: clean them and store in a dry, safe place (away from pets)!

  • Please DON’T wear your “worn-out, have had them for decades” running, gym, or gardening sneakers.

  • Sneakers are easy to add an insole into for extra foot support. Ask the store associate where you normally purchase your shoes for recommendations.

  • You CAN go barefoot in sneakers if you’d like, but….

  • Don’t ruin that spring/summer manicure. A pair of “no-show” or low ankle socks do the trick.
