I will admit I have never really been one for sneakers but over the last year I have developed a crazy StyleCrush on them! Don’t get me wrong, I still love the way a heel looks and feels on my foot but when I am running around midweek its all about practicality…well, mostly.
Who knew if it was Livvy (read Olivia Palermo) who set the wheels in motion for this new crush (I suspect she had something to do with it) but its a crush that hasn’t left yet, so maybe its somewhere between a crush and a love affair, its a ‘crush affair’ and it seems that I am in luck… with designers to the likes of Isabel Marrant, Jimmy Choo, Lanvin and Giuseppe Zanotti all producing a sneaker.
I really wanted a pair of high tops to wear with leather leggings (mmm, I think Livvy definitely had something to do with this!) and all of the above designers have produced a wild high top but I eventually went with the Zanotti pair but after my children told me they wouldn’t get out of the car with me if I wore them in public, I was a little concerned… perhaps I should have gone with the Lanvins?
On the recent Singapore trip I picked up these Miu Miu sneakers… but I didn’t enter into the purchase lightly, I had them on hold for 3 days and tried them on 4 times… and of course asked the opinion of my two favourite little critics… Here’s hoping they were worth it…
