HERE WE COME.
If your short-term memory is in working order, you might recall that yesterday's post unveiled my current choice for the perfect walking shoe: Superga sneakers.
I realize that Supergas are by no means new and undiscovered. They've been around for awhile. My first encounter with them was in 7th grade when a girl in my class started wearing a pair she had purchased in Italy. I remember thinking oh, cool sneakers, but that was pretty much it.
Fast forward to the current spot I am occupying on the non-facebook timeline that is my life, and Supergas have once again cropped up in my brain space. This time, however, I took the leap from cool shoes to I want to own you. And so far it's been grand.
These pictures are from yesterday's inaugural sneaker spin, in which I demonstrate how Supergas look AWESOME with skirts. And I know you can't see me right now, but I am currently wearing them with pants as I type these words, and guess what, people?! They also look awesome with pants.
Not every sneaker has the ability to successfully jive with whatever else you might be wearing. I mean, just the other day I decided to walk 50 blocks to meet some friends for lunch, and since my Supergas hadn't arrived yet, I resigned myself to wearing a pair of old New Balance running sneakers. Needless to say, this particular choice of footwear did not work well with my outfit (a cotton dress and lime green clutch). My friends mocked my appearance. I ate my food and shrugged. I had wanted to arrive for lunch looking cooly chic, but I also wanted to avoid mangled feet. I ultimately valued the latter over the former, BUT NOW I DON'T HAVE TO CHOOSE, GUYS. And as a 21st-century Gen Y female, I love it when one of my million daily choices is eliminated right before my eyes. Boom poof gone thx.
Floaty blouse + embellished skirt + shoes you can actually walk in = party at my house.
So call it a miracle, or call it (more accurately), a superior sneaker design concept. I am hooked on these shoes. By the by, they also have great arch support and somehow manage to slenderize my ankles just as successfully as a pair of high heels.
The sneakers even look great with super ladylike touches like brooches. BROOCHES! This is all so magical.
