These sneakers will ease the pain of not wearing those heels all the time, “literally”!
Sneakers were just not my thing! I was the type of girl that felt so unladylike if I wore anything that didn’t have at least a 4-inch heel to it. I mean come on, you’ve heard the saying “the higher the heel the closer to God”? That was me, I just didn’t feel girly or sexy or as confident without a heel on. Fast-forward to several years later and add about 10 kids to that equation! LOL! Not really ten, just three. I realized that as a mother there was just no way that I would be able to chase around three and four year olds with high heels on. I just could not function, and believe me I really tried, needless to say that was an #epicfail. Now I’m not knocking anyone who can wear heels all of the time… if you can do it more power to you! For me comfort became a much bigger priority, I had to find shoes that were comfortable but still kept me stylish and feeling confident. The funny thing is, now I can’t live without a pair of sneakers (cute ones, of course). I mean I am actually looking for them and have started a collection that continues to grow. These sneakers have become staples in my wardrobe; I have four out of the five pair that I have picked. I absolutely love them and I know you guys will too!
These are a classic pair of sneakers that never go out of style! No matter how much the trends change the Chuck Taylors are a staple for any wardrobe. You can wear them with jeans or a cute little dress! You simply can’t go wrong with a pair of converse. They come in a variety of colors and styles and they look good on pretty much anybody, so its an easy look that can pulled off without too much effort! This Converse style retails for $49.95.
This is a cute and comfy alternative to your 5-inch heel! This shoe is a revival of the famous 80’s hip hop/b-boy sneaker, and is such a versatile option for your everyday looks. Just like the converse sneaker it can be worn with cute dresses and jeans and of course your comfy sweatsuit. I love the contrast of the black stripes on the white shoe, it really stands out and can make any outfit pop! You will fall in love with these and struggle with not wearing them everyday! Superstars retail for $79.95.
I love a good slip on sneaker! They are quick and convenient for those days when you’re on the go and don’t have time to think too hard about what to wear. You can slide them on and be out the door! I love that there are so many options as far as style choices with this shoe! These are ironically very chic in basic black and give you a casual, comfortable feel all while still looking very put together. The Gills Platform retails for $79.95.Puma Basket Strap Exotic Skin Sneaker
These are the only pair in this list that I don’t have… Yet. Lol! I am in love with the exotic skin and the three Velcro closure on this sneaker! It’s like a flat and a sneaker had a baby! They will definitely be added to my collection in the very near future. This color is listed as a Halogen blue, (kind of looks more grey to me) but we’ll just have to see won’t we?! This Puma style will run you about $89.95.
I can’t say enough about this sneaker, I mean it is just cute and so stylish! These are definitely more on the super sneaker-head side but there are so many girly styles and fun color combos ( like this great neutral pair)! You can pair these with jeans or leggings and your favorite tee or sweatshirt or go sexy-comfy with a great fitted sweat suit. I love those cute Victoria Secret ones! This Air Max style retails for about $125.
I will never get rid of my heels, but I must say now that my mind is open to the world of sneakers I plan on having a whole lot of fun trying out different styles! I will definitely have to do a part two of this post because I saw so many cute pairs that I think would just love to go home with me! Which pair(s) do you own and what sneakers are you currently salivating over that aren’t on my list? Let me know in the comments below. Love you guys!
