We have talked about unique shoes. We talked about casual sneakers. We even talked about hardwear. But mixing together and creating a sartorial sensation that few have yet to tap into is an art form. While sneakers may still seem too laid back or athletic for a going out outfit, a studded or platform sneak seem to be a great way to add shine, interest and texture to any outfit. These celebs may not have paired the badass trend of studding or platforms with their casual style, but these shoes add just the right amount of avant guarde as a completer piece.
Heidi Klum and Jeffrey Campbell HOMG-ST Platform Sneaker
Fashion superstar Heidi Klum may have her style down to a strict science, but this Project Runway host and mom-on-the-go doesn’t sacrifice chicness for comfort. A striped maxi-dress paired with on-trend high tops looks athletic and high-fashion without looking over the top. The best way to wear a pair of high tops, especially ones that have a bit of a heel as the kicker, is to wear them with something out of the ordinary. Kingpin of crazy footwear, the Jeffrey Campbell brand has reworked the idea of a classic high top sneaker. The HOMG-ST Platform Sneaker brings in one of the fashion world’s newest obsessions, flatforms, to a whole new dimension, plus a great studding adds texture.
Karolina Kurkova and Ash Cool Wedge Sneaker
Another model off-duty that has a killer fashion sense is Karolina Kurkova. Her high-fashion look of leather leggings and a military jacket with a vintage feel pairs nicely with the modernity of a wedged, high top, black on black sneaker. This tendency, pairing vintage inspired pieces with contemporary shoe wear is the perfect way to break the mold of jeans and the t-shirt, especially with trendy wedge sneaks. Ash has been at the forefront of the sneaker craze and we see why. The Cool Wedge Sneaker is both original and classic, with its hidden wedge construction and tennis shoe feel.
Mindy Kaling and SuperGa 2750 Netu Sneaker
Petite starlet Mindy Kaling is on the short list of women who can make us laugh uncontrollably. With her newest autobiography and her crucial role as Kelly on The Office, this cute and quirky star looks right at home in gold high tops. While we may not have pegged her as a basketball fan, a pair of gold sneaks we would put passed her. Her eccentric and unique personality should only match her bubbly sensibilities, and these 24 karat kicks are doing the job. The shape and style of staple sneakers hasn’t changed much, especially when you find something that works, which the SuperGa Sneaker brand has done. The 2750 Netu Sneaker is the pot of gold at the end of your sartorial rainbow, with a timeless shape and easy-to-wear fit but with mesh panels to keep your feet cool.
