I was that girl that was always in a pair of heels or wedges. Always. Even after I had kids (well, until my third). Even when I worked 8-12 hours in high paced retail…I was in heels. Part of it is because I feel I was slighted 2 inches in leg length in the genetic deliveries. Those few inches of heels really balances out my longer torso. The other part, is because they just look fabulous. Fashion over function right?
Eventually, I started creeping into the flats and boots (no heel). Even though they made me feel a bit stubby (although I stand at an even 5’6″) and didn’t offer any support, I began wearing them. Chasing kids, shopping at the grocery store, hours upon hours of sporting events eventually started changing that and I wanted something a little less dressy for all those sporting events, running around town…and ugh…I wanted to be comfy. I would find myself slipping down the ugly rabbit hole of wearing my running shoes…GASP! And my running shoes are NOT cute. I buy for comfort and to avoid any sort of shin splints…they don’t make those cute that work for me.
I was getting desperate and needed a solution…fast. I wanted to keep up a stylish look, but be comfortable WITH support. I started to notice a trend in city girl fashion popping up in my Pinterest feed of classic sneakers making an appearance in simple but well styled outfits. So the hunt began. And I found my new comfy sneakers…and my sneaker head 12 year old son even approves.

These New Balance shoes are next on my buy list! I got the black Nikes below…but I do love a little pop of color with my predominantly black wardrobe.
I opted for the ’83 Air Pegasus Classic Black Nikes for two reasons. 1, I never pass up stylish black, it goes with everything. 2, in ’83 I was 8, and I just love that they are classics. What do you wear to be stylish and comfortable (like really comfortable)? Which of these looks fits you best?
