The Sneakers Every Fashion It Girl Has In Her Closet
If there’s one thing I value above all else when it comes to great style, it’s comfort. I love a fabulous pair of heels as much as the next girl, but the pain I endure for fashion – i.e. standing even for an hour in a pair of toe-crushing Choos – is just not worth it. Truth be told, as I’ve grown older I’ve become increasingly confident about carrying off a dressy look with a chic pair of flats or sneakers, prompting me to banish high heels to the very top (and out of sight) part of my shoe closet.
Talking about sneakers, I’m budding into something of a sneakerhead lately. At last count, there were five pairs in my shoe closet, including a Diesel one autographed by Renzo Rosso that I never actually wear. But my newest acquisition – and the one I’m most stoked about – is this sleek pair of Adidas Originals Superstar Sneakers that’s been on my #HauteList for well over six months now.
Pretty much every international It Girl worth her athleisure status – including Gigi Hadid, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, and Emma Stone – has a pair. Closer home, the poster girl of casual chic Anushka Sharma too was spotted wearing them recently. I love the way street style stars have been styling theirs with everything from distressed denims to maxi dresses. That’s how versatile and cool these sneakers are.
While Adidas India has a bunch of cool Superstars in funky colours (including some pieces from a collaboration with musician Pharell Williams), my heart belongs to the classic white and black version that’ll never quite go out of style.
