Sneaky Style

img_0877Who What Wear, the Bloggers Blog, recently posted about the “Sneakers every Blogger owns.” I’m definitely a sneaker lover and glad to have their three style categories covered…and then some. Theirs: Black, White, Designer. My adds: Singular Slip-ons and Wildcards.

BLACKimg_0990Left to right: Converse One Star as seen in this post. No longer available at Target but these are the High Tops originals that started the craze. And look at these in 22 colors!img_0992

Vince styles these Slip-ons in perforated black leather for an understated yet edgy look. I wear them with…everything.img_0993

Superga refers to themselves as the People’s Shoes of Italy. They are the perfect combination of timeless classic and modern cool. My suede ones are old and no longer available, but I have a feeling you’ll find at least one pair to love on their site.img_0996



For me, there is only one pair to own: Adidas Superstars. They are the epitome of super cool, super comfortable. And I even got mine monogrammed! (You can too.) Every time I put them on I really do feel like a…superstar!

DESIGNERimg_1018Left to Right: Penelope Chilvers are the shoes of choice for London’s Sloane Rangers. And now I know why they love them so.While a bit of a splurge, you will love and wear these upscale sneakers for years. My old navy blue Jungle Ponies are lined in shearling, so I can wear them all winter long. These are too and the color is of the moment. (Love these, too.)img_1023

COMME DES GARÇONS low tops are classic Converse kicks with a quirky twist — created in collaboration with NYC artist Filip Pagowski and legendary designer Rei Kawakubo. Think you’ll heart these as much as I do.img_1027img_1031

ASH gives the High Top high style. My silver ones are old and no longer available but check out these and theseimg_1033


SINGULAR SLIP-ONSimg_1010Left to right: Love the tweedy black-and-white fabric and eye-catching bling of my Kate Spade’s, and you knew I had to have at least one pair of grey sneakers! Both are old so no longer available, but love these and these

WILDCARDS: COLORFUL!img_1040Left to right: Both by New Balance with J. Crew. Moss/Lilac and Bitter Lemon (size 5 only) are no longer available but similar here and here


Zara does it again with this sweet yet sophisticated satin pair. They have the look of Lanvin or Balenciaga but not the sky high price tag. In fact, they are Spring’s steal at $29.90! I love this feminine buff hue, but they also come in black. Another amazing designer-inspired option here too.

I hope there’s at least one look here that inspires you. Let me know what sneaker (or two) you seek out. And happy shopping!
