Confessions of a Closet Sneakerhead
Beyond my personal obsession, sneakers are definitely having a fashion moment and women's feet all over the world should be celebrating. Although sneakers don't work with every outfit, they're a weekend warrior's wardrobe staple. I don't want to walk around in my work flats when I'm shopping, running errands or meeting up with friends. They get enough action during the week. Unless the outfit/venue/occasion requires a dressier shoe, I'm so down with my kicks.
I recently went to the Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando and I wore my new rose gold Converse high-tops — the security guard who checked me at the gate even noticed them! Speaking of sporting events, sneakers are a no-brainer for sports fans. They're the perfect combination of comfort and style for gameday and every day.
Shopping tip: Some sneakers are sold in adults AND kids sizes. Try a larger kids size to see if it fits because you can often get the same style for a much lower price!
Here are some pairs of sneakers I'm currently coveting (five of which I already own!):
