Sk8-er Girl

This year’s spring shoe trend is calling like a siren.  The slip-on skater sneaker, so cool, so easy, so perfect.  I’ve ordered a few and returned a few, see I’m a little gun shy after following the last shoe trend, I give you the concealed wedge sneaker:

I’m still shaking my head in shame for that one, but come on, it’s a sneaker that also gives you a little lift!  Yet, somethings should never be, or maybe they should – but on the under 20 year old set only.  So here I am a year later, maybe a year wiser – my concealed wedge sneaker donated to charity, my trusty black converse on life support and skater shoes everywhere calling my name.

Here are my favorites:

But this bargain at $650 seems to still be available, phew!

All joking aside, I’ll probably play it safe and replace my Chuck Taylors with these Superga’s.

Superga Classic $65.00

I already own them in white, they have the perfect arch support and I’m always happy to put them on my feet.  Plus I won’t have to worry about waking around puddles or avoiding muddy terrain in fancy skater shoes……I’ve almost convinced myself, can you tell?!
