I have been against this new trend of more sophisticated high top sneakers.  I will be honest, the first time I saw them I thought they were ridiculous.  But now I see Olivia Palermo wearing them....and I think they look amazing.  Hers are Lanvin (available here). The brown and black color combination is an elegant one.  She also styled them with the perfect handbag, the perfect coat, and the perfect pants.  I"m starting to like them.  Plus, they look really comfortable.  What do you say? Yay or Nay?  Here are a variety I have been seeing around the internet.  Some have a high heel built-in.

Its all about the styling and about repetition.  If we see something a lot we get used it and start seeing it as normal and even begin to like it even if we were abhorring it at first.  My faves are the Lanvin ones in that brown and gold.  But I won't be rushing anywhere to get them anytime soon.  I think I will stick with my converse for now.

  1. I didn't think I was a sneaker girl, but I want ALL of those!! Leave it to Olivia...

  2. I really like the Lanvin sneakers!
    I own two pairs of Isabel Marants, but before then I hadn't owned running shoes since the 6th grade.
    I'm really getting into this trend though...

    1. I know! I think we are going to just get used to seeing sneakers everywhere such that they are going to start looking cool and everyone will jump on the band wagon...and they are so comfortable! Do you love your Isabel Marant's?

  3. Albertina, I think my mom owns some of those sneakers in your picture. She has always been ahead of the trend. I should learn to be more like her. But I don't think i am there yet.
