Pumped Up Kicks


The single fashion item that has taken over this summer with no signs of letting go is the simple, white sneaker.
Thanks to Adidas’ relaunch of the classic, Stan Smith style shoe, white sneakers are popping up in places where you might least expect them, paired with outfits that might surprise you.
Supermodels Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, fashionistas and street style stars all share an obvious adoration of the white sneaker, as is evidenced by the frequency with which they’ve been spotted sporting them.
T-shirts and jeans, along with shorts, are the fairly obvious choices to wear your sneakers with. However, toss all your pre-conceptions about shoe appropriateness out the window and get in the groove. Card carrying members of the Stan Smith revolution are pairing their prized kicks with skirts of every length; mini, midi and maxi. They’re also slipping on their sneaks with cocktail dresses, leather shorts and evening gowns.
While we’re loving the Stan Smiths, we would be remiss to leave out some of the other classic, white sneakers like Superga, Converse, Sperry and Vans.
If you like your white sneakers with a splash of souped-up style, check out what’s on offer from Fendi, Gucci, Moschino and Tory Burch.
Looking for something that’s not only different, but could add an inch to your height? Check out the platform Puma by Rhianna’s Creeper shoe.
Like sneakers themselves, styles are never one size fits all. If white sneakers just aren’t your thing, no worries.
There’s a rainbow of options for your feet from designers like Balenciaga, Christian Louboutin, Burberry and Michael Kors.
The time has come to kick your kicks up a notch or two, or even three!
