If you wear a suit everyday to work, you’re probably happy when you can throw it all off and put on something casual. Maybe you dress casually everyday for work. Either way, wearing casual shoes can be tricky. In case you haven’t heard me say it before, unless you’re a personal fitness coach or you work at a gym, athletic shoes are only for when you’re working out or playing sports. They are not for everyday or work life.
Where does this leave you when not dressed up for work or other events? There are many footwear options in between dress shoes and athletic shoes. Let’s focus on 1 step above athletic shoes which are sneakers. They are tennis shoes you wouldn’t wear to work out in and they’re not dressy enough for suits or dress pants. You can wear them with jeans for a stylish look and not feel guilty with how comfortable they are.
Here are 3 of the newest sneakers that will look great with many of your casual looks.
Let’s start out with my favorite embellishment, studs. These gold studded Saint Laurent black leather low tops are great with many of your outfits. Yes, the studs give them a hint of attitude but they’re refined enough to wear all over town. You probably already have many things in your wardrobe that go with black. These may become your signature piece.
Your next sneaker option is a very affordable brown leather look sneaker looks great with tons of casual looks and is a neutral so it goes with most colors. If you’re vegan or stay away from real leather, this shoe is a smart option. No leather but it’s preppy depending on what you wear it with.
Our third sneaker is not for the faint of style. If you don’t count yourself as someone with great style, now is the time to step into the ring. This shoe will take you places. It’s a Bottega Veneta black woven leather high top with a ski boot multiple buckle closure. That’s quite a mouthful and it provides quite an eyeful. It’s extremely fashion forward without being over the top. You could wear these to many of your casual events and have both men and women admiring them and asking where you got them. Step up and show them your style IQ.
As you can see, sneakers provide much more style than athletic shoes with just as much comfort. Your whole look counts from head to toe so show the world that every detail counts.
