So, How Are You Feeling About the Slip On Sneakers Trend?

So, you might have noticed that many of your favorite bloggers have swapped out their stilettos for slip-on sneakers…also called skater shoes.  Thanks to the fab folks at Celine, the 80’s classic is back…and they’re really having a moment.  Available in every color and print you can imagine from classic checkered Vans to leopard print pony-hair, every designer and brand has their version.   So, what do I think of the trend?  Well, I think they can be super cute with the right outfit…just as cute as a pair of chucks or running shoes.  I don’t wear sneakers often, but I’d say they have a place in my wardrobe.

I picked up this pair of patent leather slip-on sneaks for my job’s conference back in January.  Primarily, I just wanted something comfortable and easy to get in and out of…and these were perfect!  Usually, my “conference shoes” don’t see the light of day for the rest of the year, but I was happy to find a pair that I could actually keep in my day to day rotation.

So, what do you think of the slip on sneakers trend? Will you be picking up a pair this spring? or are you sticking with your strappy sandals?

  2. You make everything look so cute! I like this current trend especially in funky patterns and textures. I'm usually in flats anyway, so this would be a great addition to my wardrobe!

    This outfit really struck my eye!
    I'm new to blogging & hoping to make friends! I'd appreciate it if you'd take a look at my blog!

    I 'm not big on heels so any cute flat option is right up my alley. I love your patent version!
    I gave in to the trend. I bought a pair of leopard ones from Gap and bought a blush pink pair from Kohls. I figured I should branch out to other kinds of shoes now but they are making really cute slip-ons now. I'm not even a sneaker person but I like this (better then the whole wedge sneaker trend of past years).

  6. The ones you are wearing are super cute and I love the Sam Edelman and Steve Madden ones. I am not a sneaks girl and usually only wear them to the the gym, but it would be nice to have something cute for running errand doing errands or being cute and casual.

  7. I think slip on shoes could be cute as well! I was going to get a pair at Target but wanted to wait until they go down in price a bit. I also like them because they are comfortable (the ones I tried on) and they don't make my feet look as flat as they are! You styled these perfectly Eb!

  8. Oh I am loving this outfit Eboni! You look ca-ute and comfy! I'm looking forward to dressing down a little more this summer !

  9. I like these shoes, and think the styles that I love to wear best would be patent loafers or even snakeskin or brogue styles that are similar. Love that lip colour as well!
