I have a strong suggestion for all the ladies. If you're going to wear a sneaker, how about making it a bit more fashionable. Your heavy white sneaker should be worn at the gym only! When you're putting on a casual outfit, finish it off with a sleek fashion sneak. There's nothing more aggravating than seeing a woman in a cute casual outfit only to have it ruined by huge, ugly athletic sneakers. And they're usually filthy. It's not feminine. It looks like you're standing inside a big brick.
Before you even go there, let me assure you that a tight-fitted, sleek sneaker will be just as comfortable as your hideous cross trainer. Also, if you have a favorite color, buy your fashion sneaker in that color. It's always nice to add a pop of color to your outfit.
The gym sneaker is for the gym, just like the rest of your gym wear. Most of you wouldn't be caught dead at work wearing your gym clothes, so why would you wear your gym sneaker? Add a fashion sneaker toute suite!
