Sneakers, trainers, tennis shoes, whatever you call them the trend of sporty, fun and comfy shoes has been on for a while. Shiny designs of gold, silver and metallic; brights and neon; studded Converse; animal print; high-tops and the controversial heeled sneakers, whichever the choice we owe a big thank you to this trend which embraces our feet comfortably during any season.
The high-tops (very Adidas) were probably related to rappers and basketball players, but now you see the coolest looks pimped with a pair of these, Cara Delevigne, for example, is always caught wearing them. Now you can find the coolest and craziest designs, just like the one I chose above.
Moving onto the trainers with wedges, it’s been a controversial trend, as much loved as hated. It took me a long time to get along with it and as soon as I shared my pair of suede Ash in prune the response was black or white, and lots of ‘I never pictured you on these’… I did like them!
Shiny and metallics have always been in my wardrobe, I have something for them, same with animal prints. My Converse history include silver, gold and leopard, now the classic Superga offer these too.
The studs’ euphoria is calming down, I didn’t feel annoyed by the punk rock wave though, reason why I still find the studded Converse actually really cool. However, you won’t find them at their shop, instead search at another online stores of DIY garments such as Urban Eclectics.
And of course, can’t forget the amazing website of Nike, where you can customize your pair of neon Nike! I made it all in one bright lime shade.
