I never thought that I would be the one that went back to wearing sneakers, I mean think about it, through life we evolve. And as such, so to does our choice in shoes. Being an eighties child, neon shades and high top sneakers were so in. Think about Madonna’s Material girl video and let your mind wonder into all the various ways we dressed, and no matter what was on our body, you can bet your bottom dollar that there were high top sneakers on the feet. But don’t discard the normal sneaker, oh no! Pair those babies with frilly socks and you were in the game.
But as everything goes, my eighties childhood soon evolved and as the years quickly past by, the sneaker craze was over and the girls who have now grown into women, slowly slipped their feet into heels. Think about this, we were no more children, rather young, sexy women who wanted ooze sophistication. Bye Bye sneakers.
Fast forward to today, and here it is again. So what makes the sneaker culture so alluring to even the ones that thought that sneakers are only meant for the gym?
- its ability to become adaptable
We live in a time where everything seems to be on fast forward, and to keep up with the pace, we seek comfort. Brands have made this transition for us the consumer so easy. A traditional sneaker has evolved into shoes that are not only comfortable but also fashionable and more importantly they can easily metamorphosize from sporty to chic casual and before you blink into classy sophistication.
There has been a swift shift brought about by the millennials into the sneaker culture and which has positively been adopted by the rest. As a result, it has become acceptable to walk into a corporate office and find workers clad in formal attire accompanied by sneakers, in fact we have noticed this trend becoming quite popular on the red carpets at prestigious events.
So here I am, years post Material girl, embracing a trend I rocked twenty years ago. Why? Because I love the idea of been comfortable and stylish at the same time. Is that not fashion 101?
