A Change of Heart

I have never been a sneaker wearer in my pre-mom life. I love flats, sandals, boots, and flip flops for comfort, but you pretty much would never catch me in an athletic inspired shoe unless I was headed to work out. I’m finding that to be a thing of the past now that going out and about requires lugging a carseat, diaper bag and a trillion other objects along with me. Daily trips out of the house have become somewhat of a workout in themselves. So, here I am seeking out cute sneakers to add to my rotation. Y’all have any suggestions??

  1. Old Navy, Mesh Suede Trim Sneakers
  2. Macys, Womens Maya KP Sneakers
  3. Nordstrom, Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Sneaker
  4. Kohls, Converse Star Player Shoes
  5. Zappos, Reebok Lifestyle Classic Nylon
  6. Zappos, New Balance Classics
  7. Zappos, Osiris Hayou LT W
  8. Zappos, Saucony Originals


  1. Well, you’ve hit upon my two go-tos! I’ve worn Converse All Stars since I was in high school, and I see no reason to stop now. My slightly more grown-up version (which has some actual support!) are Onitsuka Tigers. My current pair are tan with navy stripes. Love ’em. My only rule is Not. White. I hate worrying about getting them dirty.

    Not sneaker-related, but have you tried the slip-on Danskos?

  2. Puma’s hold up really well and you can find them at the outlet stores for $30 pretty often. Old Navy sneakers… not so much. The soles starting peeling off the pair I bought after I wore them for a few weeks. However, they are cute and if you can find them half off I’d go for it!

  3. Pumas or converse

  4. I’m a big fan of Gola shoes. Super cute and super comfy.
