Reebok Sneakers on Melrose
How to Rock the Sneaker Style
Over the past few months, I refound my love for sneakers. When I was growing up, I loved sneakers. All sorts of sneakers. I was a tomboy so I have multiple sneakers in multiple colors and styles. We're talking about my old school days now, and it feels eerily long ago. Am I getting old!?
A couple of months ago, I received a few pairs of sneakers and I completely forget how much I loved wearing sneakers. They protect my feet and somehow they always seem to be so much more comfortable than any other shoe. Recently I found the new Reebok Harman sneakers and I honestly could not love them more. They're nice and squishy, while being plenty roomy for my wide foot.
I've been learning how white sneakers can go with so many outfits, and bring them to the next level. These Reebok Harmans are so comfortable, which is one of the main reasons I want to incorporate them into my everyday lifestyle.
While I have shopped at DSW in the past, I'll be honest and say that I had not been to a DSW in many years. I decided to go to the one at the Oro Valley Marketplace in Oro Valley (technically a different town than Tucson.) I ordered the shoes online and completed the order so all I had to do when I got to the store was ask them to bring up my order. It was super quick, and the customer service was fabulous. You know I'm all about efficiency so the faster I can get my hands on shoes, the better off I am.
There's a few ways to differentiate the sneaker trend.
1. Sneakers with dresses and skirts.
This makes the sneaker make the outfit a bit more casual, or can class the entire look up depending on the exact sneaker. One of my favorite things about adding sneakers to a dress or skirt look is how cool it looks with such a girly outfit.
2. White goes with everything.
It's much easier to rock and style a pair of white sneakers to an outfit than it is any other color. While they may get dirty first, it is worth the investment to get them in white. If all else fails, you can always whiten the shoes easily through a photo editing app.
3. Opt for a low top.
Many people have been rocking a high top (sneaker that runs up past the ankle) but I really think the low top is where it's at because it looks significantly better. The low top is chic, casual and much more breathable. It's tough to image having sneakers all the way to my ankles, as there would be no additional benefit to that cut.
At the moment, embroidery is very in and specifically, floral embroidery. I've seen a few different sneakers with designs and I love that trend. However, if you don't want to pay a ridiculous amount for some embroidered shoes, you can certainly make your own. It's really easy to get DIY with it and decorate your own sneaker.
Rocking your sneakers with some distressed denim that is nice and fitted around your ankle is such a nice look too. It gives the outfit some more pizzazz while keeping it nice and casual.
Rest assured, now that I've found these sneakers they will be all over my Instagram feed and obviously, my feet.
I normally wear a 9 1/2, but there weren't any in stock at the location I planned to pick my shoes up, so I went for a 9 which ended up being the better option for me. They are plenty roomy, and the 9 1/2 would have been too big. I'd recommend perhaps size down 1/2 size since these are super roomy.
This past weekend I headed to Los Angeles as I'll be here until Thursday. I planned a very elaborate schedule with my brother being the photographer. He had never used a DSLR before, and I figured I would have to do some extensive teaching. Although the only thing I ever do is get the right angle, the right light and shoot. I call it simple, but not everyone can make a photo look good. My brother is a mastermind, and I was so happy with all the photos.
