If I had to guess the last time I wore heels (I mean high heels) was probably sometime early last year. I could be wrong. What I do know is that it’s been a good hot minute since I last graced these Atlanta streets with heels on. Honestly I don’t even know when or why but I’ve sorta fallen out of love with them. Now my preferred heel height of choice these days are 2.5 to 3 inches (anything higher is almost out of the question).
Finding the right style shoe to compliment your look is good, but comfort should come first. I know I’m not the only woman who endured pulsing, constrictive, numbing pain as a result of wear an ol nasty pair of heels you just had to have because is killed your look. And it made you feel all warm on the inside when you saw people looking and shouting out compliments on your dope footwear.
Well guy’s I’m over it. Ya’ll can have the high heels, just slide me over a cute kitten heel and I’m good love (wink wink). I can see the side eye you’re giving me and saying to yourself, naw sis, I’m good on the kitten heels. No worries, if you refuse to get into the kitten heel trend, my next fave flat shoe option is a sneaker. Not just any sneaker, a sneaker with attitude.
Paring sneakers with your look is easy, effortless and can add the same level of character to your look that a heel can. Worn with a skirt (long or short), a midi or mini dress, jeans, trousers or a suit. Sneakers is all the rave these days.
Since it seems that I’m on a no heels campaign, my shoe goal is to search out and find unique sneaker styles that will provide me with no-fail looks to keep you guys inspired.
You don’t have to be a sneaker head to get into this trend. Are you a fan of sneakers or you’re a heels girl til the end?
