as much as i like to admire $700 shoes, even if i could afford them i probably couldn't wear them more than 10 minutes at a time without falling over in pain. sneakers are great for constant comfort, but unless you're wearing them with gym clothes, it's a little too jerry seinfeld for my tastes. thankfully converse-inspired sneakers are in full bloom this season - here are a few of my favorites.
john varvatos for converse, above.
ralph lauren sneakers.
juicy sequined sneakers.
simple brand -- these are made of recycled rubber!
