Other than a brief stint in grade school when I was feverishly obsessed with crisp white kicks (no scuffs, no creases… no walking?), I’ve mostly reserved sneakers for the gym. Shame on me, its time we all hail the sneaker! There’s been a resurgence in the Classics, re: Rihanna in New Balances, and runway adaptations such as the oh-so-necessary Givenchy floral heaven that is this are redefining the sneaker game. Kicks are no longer just for the gym or a full day of errands; they are the king of the street-style castle.
Give your kicks the love they deserve, placed appropriately next to your date-night stilettos and pretty-girl pumps. Add a touch of easy cool to any outfit, throwing on a pair of classics or trainers with your staple boyfriend shorts and moto. Better yet, win everyone over at the office by simultaneously confusing and impressing them when you throw on a pair of slip-ons with a pencil skirt. And of course, one of my favorites, stun all audiences by rocking a pair of high-tops with a mini for a night out on the town.
So, can you kick it? Yes you can!
