Among my close friends and family members, I am notorious for being overdressed. From head to toe, I feel most comfortable when I’m dressed up with my hair done and a complete makeup look. When it comes to shoes, the same rule applies: I am happy to sacrifice a tad of my comfort (and let’s get real, a little dignity) if it means getting to wear a cute pair of shoes.
For this reason, I have been extremely skeptical about the whole sneaker trend. I always admired girls who seemed to pull them off so effortlessly. Whether they matched them with a pair of jeans and a tee or a cute summer dress, these wizard women somehow managed to do what was impossible for me, which was to look cute while being completely and utterly comfortable.
I had tried on sneakers before, but they always seemed much too casual to wear with any of my clothing. That is, until I saw these babies at ALDO.
When it comes to adding new pieces to my wardrobe, I almost always gravitate towards the black version. It is universally flattering and gives off an allure that I don’t think is comparable with other colours. When it came to these sneakers, however, I was drawn to the white. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that spring is just around the corner, but the bright white version of this shoe simply stood out to me.
I had to try them on. And when I did, I was officially hooked.
They fit like a glove, and a glove made of rainbows and fluffy clouds and happiness. They were easily the most comfortable shoes I’d tried on. And on top of that, they looked absolutely adorable. They somehow worked with most of my clothes. They looked good with my jeans, but also with my dresses, and my shorts, and my light pink trench coat, and basically 90% of the clothing in my closet.
I may be very veryyy late to this sneaker party, but it is safe to say that these are my favourite shoes so far this season. It’s still early in the spring world of fashion, and I know I’ll probably move onto something new by next week, but for the time being these sneakers are the perfect combination of fashion and function. And after finally getting the best of both worlds, I think it’ll be very hard to ever compromise on comfort again.
What do you guys think? Would you ditch your favourite heels for a cute, comfortable pair of flats? Or are you sticking to those sky-high beauties? Comment your thoughts on this (pretty amazing, tbh) sneaker trend below! xoxo
