i can't believe i'm actually suggesting sneakers...

case of the mondays? hope these shoes brighten your day!

christian siriano for payless walk it out laceless zip oxford
found here

i have a love/hate relationship with sneakers. i like how they look (hence my nicely sized collection that seems to just collect dust) but i don't like to wear them. i know, i don't get it either. i guess i'm more of a flats/wedges girl. i originally ordered these laceless zip oxfords because i needed to add on something in order to qualify for free shipping. i'm glad that i randomly picked these, because i actually adore them on. they're the perfect taupe yet gold-ish color and are actually very comfortable on. i think they're very versatile too - how cute would these look to make a dress look a bit more casual? these are available in blue and pink as well. 

WOULD YOU ROCK THESE SHOES?

Oh, I love those! Not something I would normally wear, but definitely something worth trying.

I didn't have a real pair of running shoes until this year. I went into Nike and was so lost; the people there thought I was insane. Anyhow, my sneaker collection tends to collect dust as well (and by sneaker collection I mean two pairs of Converse and a pair of Coach sneakers -- it's not like extensive or anything) but these are absolutely DARLING! Might have to give my flats a break for these cuties...

I know what you mean about having a love hate relationship with sneakers! These are cute, but find that when I want to wear sneakers, it's because I'm looking for comfort (i.e. walking in the city all day!)The fact that they have a flat sole would make them just about as comfy as a pair of flats, so why even bother with wearing a sneaker? Lol! Did I make any sense there??

I also have a love-hate relationship with kicks mainly because I hate shoelaces but this pair is awesome. I love the design. xoxo

Those are sweet, but not my style. If I'm wearing sneakers, they are converse all stars. I'm thinking of upgrading to Doc Martens though, cause I'm pretty sure they are the most versatile and amazing shoes ever made. :P

E said...

I don't know if I could wear them because I'm actually super picky about sneakers, but they're not at all unattractive.

Elle said...

I'm totally not a sneakers girl at all (like 2 pairs out of 100+ shoes and they only see the gym) but these are pretty cute. I love Christian Siriano!

la petite fashionista said...

Andie said...

Those are really cute, although I'm not much of a sneaker person so it wouldn't get good use haha.

Nubiasnonsense said...

I actually love these in blue! They are on sale in the store! I saw them today =)

Dita Tastemakr said...

I definitely have to agree with you, I have a love/hate reationship with sneakers, and most of me thinks they belong in a gym class, but the little bit of me that's left think they're cool, as long as they don't LOOK like sneakers. So yes, I'd definitely would wear these, but then hate myself later for not donning a cute ballet flat or stappy heel instead.

My-Vogue said...

Very fashionable sneakers, I think I know what I am going to buy from the next Christian Siriano collection for payless - thanks for the pick!
