When it comes to shoes, I’ve always favored comfort over anything else, but of course the shoe has to look good too! It’s not uncommon to find me in a pair of ballet flats or a pair of old skate shoes. I’ve been wearing them for years, and I’m excited to see that street sneakers have made a massive comeback, and have a huge celebrity following.
The great thing about street sneakers or skate shoes (if you’ve got any sense of style) is that they go with anything. Jeans and skate shoes are a given, but I’m all up for wearing skate shoes with dresses, skirts, shorts…you name it and I’ll wear my skate shoes with anything! These are the ultimate street sneakers that will go with absolutely anything – just call them the chameleon shoe!
According to the latest polls, there’s one street shoe that’s made a comeback, overtaking other popular skate shoe brands like Converse…
