What I wish to discuss today is wearing running/athletic shoes in public. Yes I know they are comfortable, but unless you’re at a gym or out for a run or walk this really looks like you’ve given up on yourself. Quite often a whole outfit is built from your shoes. So if you start out with runners, then you’ll grab jeans and a T-shirt. Now you’re wearing a whole outfit of boring. Why not try a cool pair of Converse street shoes or a chic pair of ballet flats? You could also wear oxfords, loafers, or ankle boots. If you find yourself constantly reaching for your runners – put them in your gym bag where they belong and you won’t be tempted to wear them in public.
