Sassy Sneakers Are Back In Style

Let’s stop sneaking around the sneaker issue. Sneaks are cool again girlfriend! Gone are the days when we were fearful of sporting a pair of sneakers when not actually working out! Gone are the days when our only choices were big white leather heavy **it kickers or high-top ROTC looking sneakers.

Face it – summer is coming and casual time should be on the front burner. Think ankle pants, capris, shorts and casual skirts and you can sport a sporty shoe. Heck, drop a dress and pop a mesh slip-on on! We busy women have places to go, things to see, mountains to climb, pooches to walk. Or we just have plain old trips around town, lounging at Starbucks and weekend barbecues. The reasons to sport a sport shoe are endless, at least until Labor Day!

Shop wisely, make sure they are not heavy or stiff, they breath and of course, they look cool!

Here are a few choices of sneakers I came across this week as I perused for vacation fashions.

Josef Seibel
A sweeping toe bumper and smart perforations emphasize the sporty chic of a relaxed leather sneaker.

Ellen Degeneres
Smooth leather trims a sporty, breathable mesh-knit sneaker set on a clean white sole.

Gucci’s classic Ace sneaker gets an infusion of vintage glamour with ornate floral embroidery, a metallic heel and a pastel sole.

Nike Air Force
Air-Sole heel provide ventilation and cushioning while the deep-tread injected sole offers light-as-air comfort and flexibility.

For those of you not fond of laces, here are a few slip-on options!

Michael Kors
A casual-chic sneaker in an of-the-moment, slip-on style

Earth Tangelo
Floral and geometric cutouts lend vintage sophistication to an on-trend slip-on sneaker

Sperry Seaside
A perforated leather upper extends the effortless everyday appeal of a well-cushioned slip-on sneaker

Caslon Eden
Tiny perforations add breathability and distinctive texture to an out-of-the-ordinary sneaker

    Love this, Doreen!
    Of course, today I sported the rain boots as my commuter shoe (gag). They look cute, but so uncomfortable.
    I look forward to getting some cool sneaks! Last fall, I bought a pair of black Nike’s similar to the air force you have below. Love ’em, but need something lighter in shade for summer.

    Be well,

    Hi Doreen,
    Cool! I will get some for commuting!
    Btw, I recently bought the m.gemi flats that you sent me a link to a while ago, looking forward to the delivery!
