Do You Sneak? | Mom Style Sneaker Love

April 20, 2015

Do you have a pair of sneakers? Separate from the running shoes you might wear to work-out.  I need some.  I'm not about to denounce my love for pretty sandals or flats.  Let's be real, they're my favorite.  But I'm finding myself wanting to grab something a bit more athletic more and more.  And I always love a good justification to buy something new.

Scenario one.  I throw on a pair of a jeans and a tee and a cute pair of flats.  Perfect for looking pulled together while running errands, carpool, etc.  Maybe I'll even throw this on for a day date with my husband.  This is pretty much my mom uniform any day of the week and I love it because it works.

Scenario two.  I'm in my jeans and tee and I'm barefoot because we don't wear shoes in the house.   It's just after lunch and the kids want to go play with chalk or ride scooters in the driveway.  Or it's Saturday morning and we have no real plans but it's too nice to sit inside so we hit the backyard.  Maybe we'll end up walking around the neighborhood or in a neighbor's yard for a while.  

What pair of shoes do I grab? 




I've rounded up my favorite below.  Help me choose!!

  1. I've been thinking the same thing. I need a causal pair of closed toe shoes. I'm always in flip flops but the wet grass for soccer mornings is gross! I've been considering Toms. Now I just need the rest of the outfit you've posted ;)

    1. I know! Sometimes flats feel a bit too dressy and I'm not always wanting flip flops

  2. I just bought a pair of "Shoreline" Converse slip ons. I love them! Since they're made for women, I think they're more flattering than the classic Chuck Taylor Converse

  3. I love the mint new balances! I do have a pair of white low top converses that I love -- super comfy too.

    1. Love the white converse but there is no way I could keep those clean. Our backyard is a dirt ball right now ;)

  4. I have been thinking the same thing lately. I hate to wear my nicer shoes to the ball park, plus it has been so rainy lately! I asked for a green pair of New Balances for my upcoming birthday ;)

  5. I like the mint ones, but I would go with what's most comfortable. I just went old school and bought a pair of Tretorns and love them. They are perfect to throw on for weekend errands or a baseball game.

  6. I love my Converse All Stars in white but if I had to choose from your options my vote is for the New Balance!

  8. The mint water shoes. They are on trend, super cute and can be hosed off and look perfect again.

  9. I love sneakers, especially slip ons, they just make everything so much better! Of your selections, I like the beige and white stripe best - and I just picked up my first pair of keds. SO comfortable!

  10. I have a pair of Toms that I bought a few year ago and they have always been super comfortable and easy to slip on. I also recently bought a pair of Vans but not the slide on ones, the ones that tie. They are comfortable but if I wear them all day they tend to give my heels blisters, my Sperry's use to do this too. I still love them though. The slip on Vans may be more comfortable. I have always loved New Balances as well. Happy Monday!

  11. new balances! I have some and love them. Also, I think the shoreline converse come in grey too.

  12. I absolutely love my white Jack Purcells. I wear them all the stinking time. From your picks, I really like the grey Keds. Especially since they're slip on.

  13. Spurgas are my jam. They even look European with dresses.

  14. Aside from my rainbows, I live in sneakers otherwise in the summer. It's so much easier when running errands, playgrounds, carrying kids, etc. Aside from my nikes (current are internationalist) I have a pair of lo pro vans.

  15. Ooh love that color shirt! I love my Bensimon sneakers (named tennis elastiques). They slip on, look french, and I have had the same pair for three years now. Best investment ever. You don't even have to wear socks with them and you can even wear them with shorts.

  16. I ordered a pair of NB from J.Crew...hoping I can pull off the sporty Mom look haha

  17. Ha! Thought of you today as I was rushing to pick-up and piano. I tried my sporty new balance and they just felt wrong---slipped on my Toms and was happy as a clam! Just enough dressy that you feel pulled together and so comfy. The no socks is really key too. Plus they are machine washable. Toms for the win.

  18. I have a pair of Sperry's that are the perfect alternative to sneakers - but I love sneakers, too!

  19. While I love the New Balance... slip on is key in my book. Thinking of trying the Natives... all three of my boys love theirs!
