Already an established must-have, the star power of sneakers seems to be shining brighter than ever. Sneakers have remained a staple in everyone's wardrobe since the '60s, and now high-fashion brands consider sneakers a must-have in their collections. Why do sneakers continue to endure? The reasons we love sneakers below are sure to resonate.
1. Effortlessly chic
Sneakers give you instant street cred and go with anything. From slouchy pants to dressed up with a skirt, they’re an effortless, modern way to style an outfit.
2. Perfect for the woman on the run
No more carting commuter shoes around and swapping them for power heels at the office. The right sneakers go from day to night, from work to weekend. Aching feet after a long day of walking around? It doesn’t have to be that way.
3. On-trend and trendless
Why invest in an item that will start feeling dated the following season. Sneakers are both on-trend and forever timeless—you'll be wearing them long after the next shoe craze blows in.
4. Value for moneySneakers are tough, durable and last longer than flats. You can get a lot of mileage out of these versatile shoes because you can wear them all the time.
5. Express yourself
We all express ourselves through our fashion choices, and sneakers are a great way to do that. From canvas trainers to high-end designer styles - understated or bold - coloured, all black or animal print - there's so much choice that you're bound to find the perfect sneakers for you.
Looking for instant street cred? Shop Italian brands like l'Ecologica, P448 and Laura Bellariva. Channeling a relaxed Australian vibe? You'll love Zoe Kratzmann. If you appreciate uber-comfortable French creativity, choose Arche, or for understated Japanese elegance, try Yuko Imanishi.
At Booty, we’re especially loving our newly arrived P448 sneakers with lux suede and leather, metallics, contrast laces and hidden wedges (we definitely love the extra height!)
One thing is sure - sneakers are never going to die out. They cross social, geographic and time boundaries, and no matter what time of year, place or fashion era we find ourselves in, sneakers will always have a place.
