Put Your Sneakers On

August 30, 2011
I don’t wear sneakers but for this post I’d definitely make an exception. I can say that the last time I’ve ever worn sneakers was *thinks* wow, I can’t even remember! I only wear sneakers when I have dance practice or what have you. It was a nice change, and the cute thing about these are that they come in well, PINK! HAHA! Thank you so much to Tretorn for these awesome kicks!!

It was nice to give my feet a breather from wearing heels the entire long weekend, not to mention while I was in ABS last Sunday, I was running around the from the studio to the dressing room over and over again in heels mind you. But more on that in my next post, so watch out for it!

In a nut shell (Taken from their Facebook page): Tretorn celebrates a lifestyle lived largely outside with functional and stylishly understated footwear, rainwear and tennis balls. Since 1891, Tretorn is practical for life’s adventures. Founded in by Henry Dunker in Helsingborg Sweden near the turn of the 19th century, Tretorn takes inspiration from it’s Scandinavian roots and carries that vitality of spirit throughout all it’s collections.

For many, Tretorn brings back nostalgic memories of grade school when students in the 80s and 90s were required to wear the Swedish shoe brand’s classic tennis shoes in gym class. The Tretorn Nylite tennis shoe, born in 1967, is regarded as the first luxury sports shoe.

Worn by Björn Borg in the era when tennis stars made rock stars blush, and immortalized by 1980’s The Official Preppy Handbook, the Nylite epitomizes Swedish minimalism, making it a favorite for over 50 years.

I would like to thank my mum (who also used to wear Tretorn shoes) for taking my outfit photos today, it’s been awhile since she took my look shots. Thank God for the long weekend! We got to laugh and joke around while taking photos, which is always fun of course. If you see this, thanks for the photos, mum!! I love you!! xoxo

Btw, I trimmed my hair yesterday! And again, say goodbye to my bangs! HAHA!

I got my blog title from a line coming from Vanessa Hudgens’ song Sneakernight. If you haven’t heard it, watch the video below, haha! I thought it was the perfect song for this post, don’t you think so?

      Why thank you, so so much! 🙂 Somehow a skirt always gives sneakers that little girly vibe, don’t you think so? Haha!! 🙂

    You rocked these sneakers!! Too bad you don’t wear them very often as I think they look great! You should roll with sneakers on once in a while. Save the back and any future bunions. LOVE the look!
