A couple of fun and chic new sneakers to zhush up the winter wardrobe. Don’t be afraid of the punchy colors! Pair with your fav jeans and neutral sweater/tee and be on your way! I’m wearing Adidas’ mint green Sambas above, which you can still find here and here, or in different colors here. Make sure you check the sizing — sometimes these are sold in men’s sizes (they’re unisex). I find they generally run a bit big. If in question, you can go down half a size IMO.
ADIDAS HANDBALL SPEZIAL // BODEN RETRO SNEAKERS // NIKE WAFFLE DEBUT VINTAGE // ADIDAS SAMBAS // LOEWE FLOW // NIKE AIR FORCE ONES // MADEWELL TRAINER SNEAKERS // TOTEME LEATHER TRIM SNEAKERS* // CHLOE NAMA SNEAKERS
*Don’t ask me why, but they are on sale in a silver/white colorway here.
Shopping tip: if you are obsessing over a designer sneaker but unwilling to shell out for them, keep an eye on The Real Real. For example, these Loewe Flows are in my size and in “pristine” condition, with tags on, but under $500. (When I can’t sleep, I love to prowl TRR for hidden gems — I shared some recent excellent finds here.)
The current style is to pair sneakers with socks that show. A few great pairs to consider: any of these ones from Target; these from American Trench; these Falkes (so, so soft and conveniently thin for layering with sneaks — I have a few pair of these); or these pop-of-logo Totemes.
P.P.S. Some of my favorite things.
P.P.P.S. Great recent Amazon finds.
