How to Wear: Athletic Shoes

I wanted to start a new series with some of my favorite Instagram ladies!  I am thinking this would be a fun monthly edition!  Let me know if you enjoyed this and would like to see more!


Athletic shoes has been my favorite fashion trend!  As a momma of two active boys, I have loved being able to figure out new ways to wear these wondrous shoes! I love how comfy has become stylish!  I have linked up with some of my Instagram besties to show you how we style these closet staples!  Which way is your favorite?

I love taking pieces and tops that are comfy and classic and dressing them down with a pair of athletic shoes.  My two favorite pairs right now are my Nikes and New Balance shoes.  Both pairs work in so many ways in my closet and have been in constant rotation!


Amanda from @abc_mom_style and ABC Mom Style:  These little white and rose gold Adidas are so fun!  The gold stripes add such a great feminine touch and I just love how they go well with anything!  Of course, they are perfect with a causal look – oversized sweater and distressed boyfriend jeans.  But don’t be afraid to pair them with something more unexpected.  They are adorable with a nicer layered look – plaid, cute sweater, black skinnies and some bling.  It’s been a while since it was “acceptable” to wear sneakers with anything other than athletic wear.  Take advantage of this trend and truly be comfortable and cute at the same time!


Ann from @teacherannie:  I love my Adidas, and I wear them all the time! They are the perfect shoes to make a dress more casual or edgy, and they are perfect with leggings and skinnies. Here, my favorite kicks paired with a sundress ( last year from Who What Wear for Target) and an old bomber jacket from Old Navy, I’m comfortable for a day of shopping and lunch, but I could quickly change out the shoes and topper, and I’m ready for a date with my husband!

My favorite look is to pair my Adidas with leather leggings, a graphic tee, and this slouchy velvet blazer. It’s great for day or night, it’s supremely comfortable, and I feel great in it!

I reach for these shoes more than any others in my closet.

Dinah from @stylishprofessor:  What an honor to share this post with my Instagram besties! Thanks so much to Mandy for inviting us today.  The main athletic shoe I wear are my Converse. I have them in 4 different colors, and LOVE that they can be dressed up or down. These black converse, together with the moto jacket and tee, keep the tulle skirt from being overly frilly.

I also have a pair of navy and mint Reeboks that I definitely don’t use for running 🙂 They pair really well with a gingham shirt, cardi, and jeans. I hope you find some fun ways to style your athletic shoes!


Apryl from @prylb: I’m not a “serous” walker, but my dog is serious about getting her daily walk. So I put on comfy shoes every evening & we strut the neighborhood. Luckily, having comfort doesn’t mean I can’t have a fun print.  And running to the store after a walk doesn’t require a change of shoes😊
