It might be the best time to be in the business of sportswear. Never before has it played a larger role in both the athletic and fashion spheres. Running shoes and athletic sneakers can now be worn on your morning workout and then worked in to a perfectly styled street look. It’s easier than ever to look great and feel equally comfortable. And that’s why it’s never been better to be me. I’m a sucker for comfort. Form and function coexist in every outfit I put on. Take a shoe like this pair of Brooks Running shoes from their Fall 2015 Heritage collection as an example. Their design harks back to classic eighties sneakers, and while they’ve got all the makings of a running shoe, are the perfect sneaker to mix into your wardrobe to help pull off the perfect streetstyle look. This classic color combination can be mixed with literally anything, and I am in love with the attention to detail on this pair of shoes. I mean look at that stitching on the tongues–amazing!
I paired them with these lightweight joggers and a classic, almost “dad like” Hawaiian shirt because it’s still summer after all. I love mixing pieces that you wouldn’t initially think to put together and these sneakers and Hawaiian shirt speak to that. It’s a bit unexpected but it’s such an easy way to look like you know what you’re doing. Plus it opens up the possibilities of your wardrobe when you don’t limit running shoes to be worn for running and Hawaiian shirts for time spent in Hawaii (not to say I wouldn’t gladly spend all my time in a Hawaiian shirt in Kauai if I could). Add in a classic leather Timex and my new Giles & Brother bracelet and you’ve got a perfectly balanced look. Form and function in perfect harmony.
