I actually told my mom, that I wanted to be buried in these shoes. Of course her response is, “Why are you telling me? I’m going first!” Ha! Oh well, but I am serious about loving these shoes with an unhealthy passion. I have never been a sneaker person, unless I could partially hide them under long pants. Why? I have small size 6 feet and I’m a pretty petite girl, therefore, anything that I wear that isn’t slim and streamlined instantly makes me look big and out of proportion. Sneakers have always been a problem for me in this area. Until I found these babies, Converse Chuck Taylor Dainty. (http://www.converse.com/#/products/Sneakers/ChuckTaylor/532353F)
Despite being for sale on Converse’s website for $50, I got them on sale for $30 at Finish Line. Score! I had already owned a pair of black and white low top Chucks, but even those made me look like I had boat feet and I really wanted something that I could wear with shorts or sun dresses. When I found these I was skeptical about how much use I was really going to get out of them. They are too low and slim to wear socks with and I feared breaking them in. Boy, was I delighted when I found out that these suckers fit like a glove and didn’t require breaking in time. Needless to say I wear these shoes as often as I can year round. The grey color is also nice because they go with everything (hence why grey is one of my go to fashion colors when I want to buy an expensive classic piece).
What are your favorite sneakers, and what do you wear them with?
