Crist has a question about shoes:
I need some knock-about shoes. For lack of a better description, I need some stylish tennis shoes that are sleek and more streamlined than the shoes I work out in. I see cute pairs on many a girl, but have never actually found any I’ve desired to even try on.
The other morning my kids and I were talking about shoes at the breakfast table (what, you don’t have conversations about footwear with your children during the Most Important Meal of the Day?) and my five-year-old asked why I did not own any tennis shoes. And I said that of COURSE I did, and he said, “No, those are not tennis shoes; you cannot play basketball in those.”
Crist has already ordered a pair of shoes from Garnet Hill, which are perfect for casual running around. Gola Suede lace-Ups, $80.00.
This is a great look — sleek and light but still sporty and casual. Puma also makes some terrific little suede “athletic” shoes that are very much like these.
I’m a big fan of the skimmer for casual wear; it’s the perfect cross between tennis shoe and ballet flat, and can be worn with everything from a skirt to yoga pants. Keds has a nice range of cute colors and styles, like these awesome Mary Janes, available at Nordstrom for $49.95.
There is also the standard Preppy fall-back, the Lacoste tennis shoe (not meant for playing tennis, by the way, just for watching). Available in six colors (including white) at Nordstrom for $79.95.
I would also highly recommend Berne Mev shoes, which are cute and comfy and totally versatile. I wrote about them at BlogHer a while back, and because I am lazy (and also still recovering from the flu) I’m just going to send you over there to learn all about them. Sorry about that.
Now YOU tell Crist: what are you wearing for knocking around on the weekends? I’ll be over here lying on the sofa waiting to see what you all have to say. Thank you!
