As a person who rarely wears sneakers outside of the gym or playing sports, I can count on my fingers how many pairs of sneakers I own for leisure wear.
It is something that I don’t quite know how to wear myself and I’m not sure it does any favors for my physique.
That’s the reason I like ballerina flats. Even being comfortable, they can still make you look graceful and put together.
Loafers or moccasins can add a little masculinity to an otherwise soft look. Sneakers are comfortable which is a huge plus and are supposed to make you look sporty, but that’s rarely the look I am going for. Urban, casual, relaxed – yes, but rarely sporty.
But then I can style the same sneakers look on someone else or see it all over street style fashion and think it looks amazing and refreshing, so I have been torn over incorporating them into my looks more frequently.
All this was until I discovered the most amazing Gucci sneakers that just elevate any basic look to another level. I had to add them to what is now my growing sneaker collection. Even though they are far from your go-to regular sneakers, I guess you have to start somewhere. Am I right?
