following my winter wardrobe post, i bought a pair of grey 574s (also loving this sleek vintage version, here and here). in spite of their ever so Rick Steves/high school science teacher vibe, they're actually more elegantly versatile in person. bonus: these offer the most cushiony arch support of any sneaker i've tried (with the exception of my super clunky gym-only running shoes).
found: comfort + style for weekend and travelsome tips on how to buy sneakers with style in mind:
- the more neutral/monochrome the colorway, the better.
- lo-tops are almost universally flattering. hi-tops are trickier to style depending on your height / proportions.
- shop the boys' section (go 1.5 sizes down from your regular size) if you're on the smaller end of women's sizes. the styles are the same, and you can often score sold-out styles for less – double win!
