Pumped Up Kicks

28 Feb

I’ve never been a big fan of high heels. As much as I adore the way they look, I am definitely on the klutzy side (to put it mildly), and parading around in 4″ stilettos usually equates to me looking drunk as opposed to sexy.

While in college, I studied abroad in London and was overjoyed with the popularity of sneakers- especially having had left behind 100 sorority sisters who effortlessly pulled off gliding through life in 5″ platform shoes (it was the early 2000s) while I shuffled to and from class, tripping on cracked sidewalks. But everyone overseas was rocking sporty trainers and somehow, Londoners made them look awesome. For the first time, I was able to walk down the street without a paralyzing fear of falling over and humiliating myself, so I embraced it wholeheartedly and have had a love of sneakers ever since. Needless to say,  it really blows my skirt up that they’ve made quite the resurgence as of late.

I recently was given these puppies as a gift, and well, let’s just say I would sleep in them if I could.


You can find these here, but if they’re not you’re style, I promise that finding your perfect pair(s) will not be a problem. Here are a handful of other options.


1. New Balance 410 Suede + Mesh (I’m so getting these next…obsessed)

2. Adidas Hidden Wedge

3. Steve Madden Ecentric Pony Hair Slip On

4. Nike Air Pegasus 89

5. Studded Converse

6. Diadora Condor S Camo Wax
