ReThink Your Sneaks with Brooks Heritage.

sneaker fashion

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.
