“Dress Sneakers” - FitTraining Blog for Women 40, 50 and Beyond
Dress Sneakers? Yep, I have seen numerous references in retail catalogs and online shopping sites to this new category of footwear.
Sneakers have certainly come a long way since the standard issue Keds I used to know. Now they are not only designed for each and every sport including no sport at all! There are approximately 15 million search results for “how to wear sneakers with a dress”.
I love this because research reinforces that wearing sneakers (or any comfy footwear) encourages the wearer to increase physical activity. There is nothing that makes me happier than seeing you walk more in your day and also look good doing it!
No longer for the city commuter, to be surreptitiously stowed in a drawer or canvas bag after changing into “real shoes”, the sneaker has risen to fashion acceptance. Yay!
From the runway to the hallway, women are rocking sneakers of all types:
Edgy Chic- Black sneakers always feel dressier, and you can pair them with your LBD for a party. Nordstrom.com
BoHo- Cool prints and calicos to rock your breezy summer fashions. GoJane.com
Fun and flirty – For you floral femmes, Chuck Taylors in a bright color adds to the sporty vibe. Converse.com
Whatever kicks you choose this season, rock it with attitude and enjoy the freedom of comfort and style while striving for your 10,000 steps per day. Need some ideas how to walk for weight loss? Give me a call at 203-877-5270.
