I remember the first time I got drawn to sneakers was when I had my first travel across country, Macao. I didn't bring any sneakers with me that time and just planning to pair everything with my brown suede Clarks Originals, but it's not comfortable for an all-day city tour.
I decided to buy a new one and bought these navy blue leather sneakers from Lacoste, and starting that day, I realized that sneakers are not just about style, but also their comfortability.
I must say, it's the Walk'n'Dior sneakers in white cotton canvas as it goes well with my lifestyle. As someone who values work-life balance, I love how versatile it is. I can wear it for a preppy look at the office on weekdays and also enjoy it on casual days over weekends.
I really try to get smart with my budget when it comes to sneakers. Wearing a new pair of kicks feels like walking on a different path in life. I really use my sneakers for their purpose, so getting to buy a new pair means going on a new journey with them.
One of my favorite brands when it comes to sneakers is Dior. I love how they can really go with my lifestyle. It's chic and classy, but it doesn't stop you from experimenting more with different looks and vibes. I like how you can pair it with a matching suit, but it also goes well with cut-off denim and a shirt. The versatility of this brand really goes a long way, and it really values the return of investment.
One sneaker collaboration that doesn't exist but I wish to was Dior x New Balance. I love how Dior releases their sneakers in a very chic and classy way, so I'm excited to see how New balance would incorporate its comfortability and a more relaxed vibe.
I would say it's the Golden Goose Superstar. I love the silhouette of the sneakers, and the fact that it doesn't require a lot of effort to keep them clean is a plus! It can also be a versatile piece in your collection and a good pair for everyday errands.
That would be good pair of leather loafers. Even though you can pull off a lot of good fits in sneakers, leather shoes give a different feel. Footwear really finishes the vibe and look of an outfit. So, being able to slay in sneakers and leather is really a thing we should all master.
