Until now I have not owned black sneakers. Shoes that are both black and functional weren't really on my wish list. And I have to laugh at myself considering how much I have worn them, I even sported them to a holiday party. I didn't realize how much a black sneaker can complete an outfit.
Pairing black sneakers with a suede skirt feels so street fashion to me. I love the juxtaposition. When Jenn and I took on the challenge of styling these Brooks sneakers 4 different ways, we tried to think outside the normal category that we know sneakers work so well in. I wanted to show that these black sneakers pair fabulously with luxe fabrics to create a style all their own.
The defined woven black fabric of these sneakers gives them a fashion-forward feel, and I love the white sole with the slim black stripe. I'm really in love with these, and my feet are too. I mean truth be told, I am in the category of Mom Fashion and I wear that one proudly. Major bonus to feel street chic and be able to tackle the day in comfort.
