We’re currently wrapping up the July issue of Footwear Plus (all about sneakers), so you’ll have to forgive me: Kicks are on the brain. Despite all of my research on the trend from a business perspective, I have to admit how much I’m obsessed with the style and comfort of sneakers. I used to be the queen of heels and wedges, but living in a walking city like New York, sneakers are just so much comfier and more convenient. Even if I do wear dressier shoes or booties, I keep a pair stashed in my desk to slip on for lunchtime errands. They’re an obvious match for skinny jeans, like in this outfit, but I also love a clean white pair with a dress. I wore my Pumas with an Alexis wrap dress for a trade show, and after logging nearly eight miles on my tracker, my feet were still in good shape. And I got a ton of compliments on my outfit! For a sportier look, I wore a colorful pair of Coolway knit sneakers with a gray t-shirt dress for work and errands. Either way, sneakers are a win in my book.
