One of the worst feelings in the world is being in a rush. Yet, we find ourselves doing it more days a week than we’d like to admit. There are some days you’ll see me literally running down the street to get somewhere (fingers crossed) on time. So you could imagine how bright my eyes got when watching Chanel models (from my couch) strut down the runway in sneakers (granted they’re reportedly $4,000 sneaker). A sneaker lover myself, it reminded me that you don’t necessarily need a heel to make a chic outfit; infact, a pair of sneakers could be just the thing to give you a little edge. Even if it’s not your thing, ladies, carpe diem! Wear those sneakers and get *gasp* comfortable! You have no idea how long this trend will last. And for those of you with pregnant feet; could you be any luckier?
Here are five styles you’ll catch us us in this season.
These kicks give me flashbacks to childhood. My mom literally had this style and Reeboks hi-tops in every color under the rainbow. Sadly, she discarded her collection a long time ago, but I’m excited about the possibility of bringing this candy colored memory back to life. $54.99
Asics has just about the best running sneakers out on the market, so even if you’re only running to catch that taxi, know that your feet will be supported. And envied by passersby. $85.00
This classic has been purchased multiple times by yours truly. The perfect grey goes with just about anything and will mold to your feet from endless use. $64.95
One of the first designers to take sporty chic to the next level, Stella McCartney never seems to surprise us with how cool she can make a basic trainer. $250.00
All hail the Mighty Nike Free. This sneaker is as streamlined and light as they come. The classic black makes it cocktail appropriate, but it’s also available in multiple colors if you want to make a little more noise. $110.00
