Stan Smiths

I'm starting to get into wearing sneakers.  Like most of my other fashion choices, they come in waves.  I went through a bootie phase, sandal phase and so on.  I guess I'm onto the sneaker phase.  They are just so much more comfortable to throw on sometimes.  Maybe its that I'm just going back and embracing my tomboy ways.  I'm kind of liking mixing it up and pairing sneakers with more feminine pieces.  Sometimes a floral dress and moto jacket with sneaks just work.

During my search to find new sneakers (my chucks have been on repeat), I starting looking at the usual suspects - Vans, Adidas, Keds, Converse, etc.  I used to love my Adidas back in elementary school.  I remember I had the white with blacks stripes and loved them.  I came across Adidas’ Stan Smith line.  First of all, I have no idea who Stan Smith actually is, but the clean, all-white look with a small pop of color had my name all over it.  They’re so minimal and chic.  Only problem is everywhere I looked, they were no where to be found in smaller sizes.  I think the smallest size they carried was an 8.  A shortly like me can’t fit a size 8!  And as I researched more, I found out they run 1-2 sizes large.

I’m normally a size 6 shoe size so I knew I’d need a 4-5 size.  I somehow stumbled across kids sizes and just my luck all the reviews were from petite women with small shoe sizes!  I ended up ordering a size 4 and the rest is history! And I got them for cheaper since they were kids shoes.  For all you shorties, take note, kids sizes are totally acceptable!

Now let's hope I can keep them clean!
