Friday Fashion Spotlight: The Sneaker

Today sneakers are very popular among people of all ages (children and adults alike), and fashion designers have jumped on the band wagon and have created some of the most stylish sneaker shoes available that cost perhaps just as such as a fancy pair of evening shoes. The sneaker has become a wide spread trend with many fashionistas and it is not only for the use of an athletic sport any longer. No matter what style or color of sneaker you choose it is a sure thing you’re in fashion, and the idea of sneakers paired with a dress might be daunting to many others are sporting the look with confidence. The sneaker or runner has been around since the 1800’s and was primarily used for sporting events; they were made from thick leather with cut out groves on the bottom of the soles, the thought was the weight of the shoe and groves would promote more speed and control, this philosophy through the eras started to change with the engineering on how to make a lighter and faster shoe. Presently there is thousands of variety of sneakers to pick from and different materials such as leather, canvas, quilted, etc, so go for a fabulous pair of sneakers and wear them whenever and with whatever outfit, you will get the compliments.
