Here’s the thing, I haven’t really owned a pair of sneakers for nearly a decade. The last time I owned a pair of sneakers, I had black hair, wore exclusively skull t-shirts, and had a thing for studded belts. I was 14, and my sneakers were almost anime-reminiscent as they made my feet look like large heavy blocks in contrast to my wiry teenage frame. Now, when I talk about owning sneakers nowadays I am not talking about those. I’m also not talking about the runners that you wear to the gym. I am talking about good ol’ sneakers that you can rock with everything from a comfy pair of sweatpants to stylish pair of jeans.
As the self-proclaimed lazy-girl fashionista, it’s really shocking that it’s taken this long for me to cave and get a pair of sneakers. The fact that I once lived in my “skate-shoes” to swearing off all comfortable footwear entirely seems extreme, but really it is pretty much what I’ve done for the last 10 years. Well, with the exception of pretty flats and oxford lace-ups. After seeing a pair of k-swiss sneakers in a store window though, I had a thought: What if I had been missing out on a comfortable + stylish footwear option all these years? Today I am talking more about my sneaker revelation, and sharing why you NEED to get yourself a pair of sneakers ASAP!
