I’m a girl who loves her heels. I usually wear heels to almost every one of my husband’s basketball games and on most of our romantic rendezvous. Now that we live right outside of Tokyo and rely on the subway system or our bikes to get almost everywhere, all that has changed. While I have my “walk in and sit down” heels and the pumps that I know I can strut all night in, neither are appropriate for trekking through the city. Because of the amount of walking we do, I’ve come to LOVE and rely on cute sneakers.
Benefits of Cute Sneakers You Can Walk a Mile In
This is the big one! Cute sneakers are perfect for those days or evenings when you know you’ll be doing a ton of walking and they are WAY better for your feet. While I see girls walking through the subway stations in 6 inch heels on a regular basis, I just can’t do it, so I rely on a cute pair of sneakers that I can walk miles in.
Sneakers can be stylish too! Whether designer or by your favorite athletic brand, tennis shoes are really cute with a lot of outfits and actually go better with certain looks than heels.
Sneakers can be dressed up or dressed down. I love to throw on leggings and my black Nike’s to run errands during the day and have even paired my Valentino tennis shoes with tights and a sweater dress for a fun (but comfy) date night look.
After my husband’s last basketball game, we went into Tokyo for dinner at Nobu and I knew we would be doing quite a bit of walking to get to and from the restaurant. Here’s how I styled my sneakers for a casual but cute dinner look:
