Simples, Adidas, Vans, Pumas and a newly acquired pair of Nike sneakers currently occupy my closet. The latter, and latest, a hand-me-down from my niece of all people. She bought some hipster grey/yellow jobbers that she wore once and then decided she didn't like them. Fortunately for me, we're a half size difference and I'll cram my feet into any shoe if I like it enough. But that's the thing, I like very much all of my sneakers but I never wear them. Do you wear yours? Let's align then on the "how to" of sneakers. Simply put, running shoes are for running, tennis shoes are for tennis -- usually it's safe to assume the name and purpose are synonymous. Now sneakers, they are for style. Best way to style em' up is with skinny jeans (or jean shorts in the summer), a simple tshirt and a third piece that balances out the hipster vibe with a splash of "I'm a big deal and you should take me seriously in this look".
