FabList: Spring Sneakers

With spring around the corner, one of my (Jo) favorite things to do is buy a new pair of sneakers. It’s nostalgic for me – it takes me back to growing up in Michigan, when at the end of a long winter, with the snow melted and the grass visible once again, I welcomed spring with new white tennis shoes (Keds, Jack Purcells, Tretorns). I purchased my ‘spring pair’ last week when I spied a ‘new-to-me’ brand of tennis shoes on FabLister Jen V. and I copied her immediately. They are from Nothing New . . . and they are currently on my feet!!

Here is our FabList of sneakers that are not sports-related, but are to wear everyday, out and about.  We have mostly casual styles, with a few fancy ones as well – it’s a good idea to have several pairs in your arsenal.  And if you missed our fun interview of Sarah Sands, who has worn nothing but sneakers since January 8, 2016, you can find that here.

CASUAL

Adidas Gazelle Platform 

This pair in pink is what Chrissie has her eye on for spring! A bit of a ‘lift’ and great color choices.

Adidas Samba:

These are all the rage!  From the soccer field to the streets, this always-original sneaker maintains its legacy with premium materials and iconic 3-Stripes at the sides.

Adidas Spezial:

Jo saw these on a woman in Venice (Italy) and scoured the city until she found them.  Turns out they are available on Amazon and are designed for handball!  The blue color is great with jeans.

Superga:

A Kate Middleton favorite, this platform sneaker features a textured toe bumper and a durable rubber sole. Available in lots of fun colors and non-platform too.

New Balance:

New Balance has been rocking it! This sneaker pairs breezy mesh and plush suede atop a chunky rubber sole to ground the game-point look.

New Balance 327:

Really retro! Heritage details meet modern attitude in a ’70s-throwback running shoe reissued as a mold-breaking street sneaker.

SeaVees:

Both Chrissie and FabLister Katie F. love these! Take your sneaker game to new heights in this comfy platform.

Veja Campo:

Seen all around town, these Brazilian streamlined sneakers offer a clean, sporty look and can be worn with pants or dresses.

Sofft

Chrissie loves these for travel because they are SO LIGHT…like crazy light! Plus so comfy, and have the fun little splash of silver on the back and tongue. This version has a fun gold tongue.

Cariuma

One of Jo’s favorites!  The most comfy shoe around, plus they are easy to slip on and off. So cute in lace up too and has such great colors.

FANCY

Prada:

Prada’s iconic triangle logo brands the sidewall of this court-inspired sneaker featuring a mixed-media upper set in a cupsole with triangular tread.

Gucci:

Gucci serves up its signature striped webbing and logo heel tab on this low top sneaker grounded by a chunky bumper cupsole.

Chloe:

Signature scalloping along the bumper sole sweetens this leather sneaker, while a webbed pull tab at the heel lends a sporty vibe.

Happy Spring!
