Sneakers, whether they be athletic, slip-on or casual, have been popping up everywhere from street style looks to couture runways. Fashion sneakers are making big waves in the world of footwear, and with any sort of resurgent popularity comes both the lovers and the haters. For this week’s TalkShoes Asks, we want to know which side of the fence you are on when it comes to fashion sneakers.
I’ve come to realize there are three type of sneaker people out there. The first type loves sneakers and will wear them as often as they can. The second type hates sneakers and wears them only when absolutely necessary, like when it’s raining or they’re actually exercising. Then you have people who fall in the middle ground; those people wear sneakers to offer a different feel and attitude to their look. I fall in the last group of the three, and I have a feeling in the upcoming months, when more fashion sneakers become available, I may develop an even deeper love for sneakers.
The only downfall to fashion sneakers typically lies with their high price tags. So, what are your thoughts on the rise of fashion sneakers?
