put yourself in my shoes
My latest search has been for the perfect high top sneakers. With sadness I admit that my sneaker collection is, ahem, less than impressive. I guess I’ve just chosen to focus on different shoe styles. The past couple of weeks, I’ve witnessed my boyfriend coming home with insanely cool kicks, sparking some mad jealousy. I mean, he has an awesome assortment of sneakers. They’re his thing—boys, I promise to tell you if he ever decides to blog about his shoes! It would serve as some great man inspo.
Anyways, I found several pairs of sneakers that I just liked, not loved, and thought that there had to be better. I looked to the usual sneaker contenders such as Lanvin and Saint Laurent without luck. When you’re dishing out that much cash, you want to love what you’re buying.
I found my babies when I wasn’t even looking, which typically is the way these things happen. I walked into Barney’s out of pure boredom, without the intention of actually buying anything. But there they were; metallic high top Acne Studios sneaks. They were fun without being over the top, a quality that can be hard to find many times.
To clarify, I was specifically looking for nice high tops. There are other fabulous kicks in different styles that I love, and are next on my list to buy for my developing sneaker collection.
Nike is killing it, per usual. The best part about their shoes is that they’re not super pricey! The high top Air Force 1 Sneakers in all white are badass and the Roshe Run Winter Mesh and Suede Sneakers in black are sexy.
Common Projects chic take on the typical tennis shoe in all white is gorgeous. The gold serial numbers on the sides are really the only extra pop these bad boys need. They go with everything.
Isabel Marant’s Étoile Bart Leather Sneakers in all white, except for a speck of metallic blue, are great tennis shoes as well. They are completely minimal, yet slightly more dressed up than the Common Projects.
