I’m usually pretty great about resisting trends, but following blogs like Zipped have convinced me that I need this one in my life: the slip-on sneaker. I’m not a frequent sneaker wearer, but I tend to have a pair that I grab for extra-casual days where I know I’ll be doing a lot of walking. In high school, it was a pair of purple Converse. In early college it was my Keds, and in late college, my thrifted red TOMs. I do have a pair of red Converse hi-tops, but they have proven to be less versatile than I’d like. To fill this gap, I’m lusting after slip-on sneaks in pretty, neutral shades like grey, pewter, and rose gold. These six are at the top of my list.
Being that I was loyal to Keds as a kid, and then again in college, I’m leaning towards this pair. I love the idea of a metallic like the Vans, Steve Madden, and Gap pairs, but I’m also digging subtle texture like in the Splendid, BP, and J.Crew Factory finds.
Halp! Which shoe is going to take me through the end of winter and into spring?
