As much as I love a good heel, sky-high stilettos are not the most practical option for a city dweller like me. I’m either biking to work or running down a subway platform to catch the train, so that “cab to curb” kind of lifestyle just isn’t going to work. In reality, I’ll usually have a pair of flats on during my commute and then throw on my heels right before I get to my destination. If you see a girl switching out her shoes on the corner of the street, that’s probably me…
Enter the perfect sneakers from DSW. It’s a shoe style that I never thought I’d pair with something other than sweats and a tank top until recently. Times have changed, my friend! Athleisure is the idea of being sporty and comfortable, without sacrificing your style. The first time I explained the term to a friend, he laughed at me, but it’s a thing! Sneakers aren’t just confined to the gym or to the feet of middle-aged tourists. They’re being worn with dresses and skirts, or in my case, with a refined coat and leather leggings. Gone are the days where I have to stuff an extra pair of shoes in my already brimming tote bag and that’s a trend I can totally get behind.
