It’s about time for me to get rid of the trashed pair of sneakers I wear for anything that involves being on my feet for long periods of time. A new pair of running shoes is on the way and now I’ve got to decide on a more stylish pair of sneakers that I can wear with everything and take to the grocery store, the park, and everywhere else my busy life as a mom of two takes me!
Here are 9 great options that I’m eyeballing:
Lookin’ Good, Lady! 1 of 10
Classic Chucks 2 of 10
I honestly can't tell you why I DON'T own a pair of these. I've been meaning to get some for ages. You can't go wrong with any color, but I'm partial to the classic white or red.
West Coast Cool 3 of 10
I grew up in California where Vans were de rigueur. Browsing their website I well in love with their brand of laid-back cool all over again. They still carry their skater classics along with a lot of other really cool patterns and styles. I'm particularly fond of this low-profile pair of sneaks complete with metallic and leather details.
For Running or Just Running Around 4 of 10
My all time favorite pair of shoes was this fantastic pair of Nikes I got sometime in my teens. I wore them to run the track or just to run around with my friends. As a mom I've been looking for something as comfortable and versatile ever since!
Red Obsession 5 of 10
I have a weird obsession with red sneakers. I've been through a bunch of pairs but I always end up returning them. I have yet to find THE pair. Maybe this one from Superga (that also comes in 23 other colors!) would do the trick?
Vegan Friendly Feet 6 of 10
I submit that there is nothing better than a classic Saucony sneaker. Bonus: the canvas and hemp design is vegan friendly!
Tres Chic! 7 of 10
Bensimon sneakers are a wardrobe staple for French women. They go with just about everything and come in a variety of fun colors!
A Little Height 8 of 10
If you need a little height on your feet to help you feel fully dressed then may I suggest these wedge sneaker/booties?
Blowfish, $34 (on sale!)
Radiant Orchid for Your Feet! 9 of 10
Pantone's color of the year for 2014 is Radiant Orchid. Get a little dose of the hot hue with this awesome pair of sneaks!
Cool Slip-ons (Not an Oxymoron!) 10 of 10
I think they might by my favorite. I love the perfectly rumpled casual look of these slip-ons. My favorite running shoes are Asics (which is behind Onitsuka Tiger) so I'm sure they're comfortable!
