Cool Sneakers

post Image

I have never been one to run around in sneakers during the day. When the weather turns and things get a bit more casual, I typically go straight from black boots or cowboy boots to low booties or leather sandals.  Occasionally, I opt for  a Miu Miu or Jimmy Choo flat depending on the outfit.  But I’ve recently changed things up and discovered some great sneakers. Comfortable and practical, they’re a fashion trend that gives an urban edge to everyday casual.

My favorites are:


Onitsuka Tiger- a retro slip-on from the 70’s with a refreshed modern look.  I bought them on a recent trip to Venice Beach and have been wearing them constantly.

Superga sneakers – 100 year old Italian company that many consider the ‘Vans’ for the stylish. Great sneaker to transition from the city to the beach.  Love it pure white.

New Balance – a great “go-to” for a fun pop of color.  Wear them with an ankle peg jean in dark rinse or white.

Wear your sneakers with a slim boyfriend jean, ankle length straight jean, denim shorts, striped maxi skirt or solid maxi dress.  They’re athletic in nature but not meant for training.  Be sure to pair them with casual clothes and make sure not to wear anything too dressy.
