Remember when your plain old white canvas sneakers were the quick and simple in a-a rush go-to? Neither do I. It’s no news that the sneaker craze is going strong and it’s pretty evident that it’s more than just a passing trend. Everyone from Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen to Sarah Jessica Parker have been seen sporting their favorite pair of casual kicks. And it doesn’t end with just wearing them, some celebs are signing on with the collaboration process as well; take the Rihanna Fenty Trainer for Puma and Kylie Jenner’s Fierce Trainer as well, respectively. These days the sporty shoe look is taking on a whole new persona with every kind of embellishment you could imagine from leather piping in multi-colors to metallic stripes and floral prints and traditional tie-ups have given way to slip-on’s. Coincidentally, the old fangled low steppers have gone to new heights, literally; with the insurgence of the hidden wedge …thanks to some designers like Isabel Marant and Ash you can have sporty and spice all at the same time. And this new crop of foot coverings pair with just about everything, from your favorite jeans to a flowy skirt and even a tailored pair of trousers given the right pair selected. My favorite brand of the moment are Superga. They’re functional, comfortable and depending on the material I can dress them up a bit or keep them extremely low key. The price point is rather reasonable too with most styles ranging from $65. I think it’s safe to say our old sneaker days will never be the same.

My new arrivals…Superga Cotu Classic Slip- ons in Military (sold out) similar here
These arrived the same day as well but I haven’t decided exactly how I want to pair them just yet. I’m thinking of a white flowy chiffon skirt and a denim chambray top. I’ll debut them properly in a future post.
And here are my dark twisted fantasy wedges, the A.s.H Bowie.
A few more that made my lust list…..

And since we’re on the subject of celebrity collaborations, my heart nearly stopped when I heard about the collection partnership between celebrity jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer and Superga.

Mark my words…these are my next conquest!
Well what did you think? What is your favorite pair? Are you a “stick to the basics” kind of person or do you like a little flair with your style? I can go either way as you’ve probably guessed, depending on my mood. I change like a chameleon, and each day is different than the next-sometimes each moment.
Til the next time,
Wishing you Love and Luxury,
