FUN FACT: Over the past two years the search for luxury fashion sneakers surpassed luxury handbags among Lyst.com’s 80 millions users.
This past spring I pointed out this new direction in footwear on The Simply Luxurious Life podcast while discussing trends with Shannon not too long ago. You might have noticed the major designers like Gucci and Balenciaga. Even Vogue’s Editior-in-Cheif Anna Wintour is collaborating with Nike.
We all know Adidas Stan Smiths were having a moment not too long along, and perhaps they are the ones who kicked off the need for fashionable sneakers. Fast forward to today and the options for fashion sneakers are endless, not only in price point but also in the way you can style your look with sneakers.
People assume New Yorkers live in high-heels and stilettos like an episode of Sex and The City – and that couldn’t be further from the truth. Most of the time New Yorkers are wearing a flat shoe or boot to get around the city efficiently. We have places to be and people to see!
I am embracing the fashion sneaker look all year round. My suggestion is to choose a pair (or two) that is in line with your personal style. Whether it’s a neutral pair with embellishments or a bright fun color you can mix up with several outfits, have fun with it.
I feel like podiatrists everywhere are rejoicing over this fashion trend as well. Haha!
