MAN-REPELLING SHOES

How's it going guys? Yesterday it was my name-day so I had a great time celebrating! Friends, family, deserts and presents! I love presents and shopping so much, so when I have time and I can't go to the stores, I like to do some window shopping online, even without buying anything. Just checking what's around all over the world. So I couldn't help but notice a new growing trend in shoes. I usually like to experiment and try crazy unexpected shoes, but this is really not my style. I kept thinking that they won't last, but since more and more women are getting them, I thought I should ask your opinion about these. They are a combination of Birkenstock, gladiator sandals, flatforms and cleated soles. Truly man-repelling shoes, that everyone seems to want! I've seen them styled in many ways, from jeans and shorts to dresses and wide-leg pants. I have to admit that they look good on some girls, but I don't think they are very flattering. I never was a huge fan of flatforms after all. I searched all my favorite stores and I found so many different, but yet so same, pairs. I don't find these shoes pretty at all, but a trend is a trend for a reason. If i'm not going to wear these myself, I should at least show them to you and see what you think. As always, I'm proposing both, designer and more affordable pieces. The choice after that is up to you.

SPORTY, CHIC AND FASHIONABLE

source: Pinterest
I remember the time when sneakers used to be a big fashion DON'T. And I laugh. Right now, they have become one of the hottest accessories for fashionistas. I bet all of you, who always were fans of these shoes, are now jumping for joy on your new colorful Nikes. The times when the sneakers were strictly made for working out are over. You can now find them in any possible combination of color, material and brand, suitable for every weird and difficult taste. If you prefer classic minimalism, black and white Stan Smiths are also making a comeback. If you like to experiment(like me) you can go crazy and have colors, patterns and glitters on your feet, saying goodbye to blisters for good! Sneakers, slip-ons and loafers are everywhere, from runways(even Chanel!) to the streets and they are waiting for you to love them. 
Now that you can wear sneakers with dresses and skirts, it's also time to embrace another trend, also comfortable, and wear your heels with sweatpants. Sporty chic rules so you have now no excuse not to wear your sportswear outside.
I'm really curious to see how many sneakers I'm going to spot at Fashion Week in Athens. It's only two days away! This is actually another reason I'm happy-I'm wearing heels so all of you who are taller than me and are now wearing flats, BOO-YAH! Just kidding! I'm just really excited that the comfy shoe I wear every single day is in fashion! Please God, ehm...Karl, could you please continue making awesome things happen? I know you will!
What are your thoughts on this trend? Have you already fallen for it? Or not?
p.s. The last one is a photo of my sneakers. My Stan Smiths are probably the oldest ones you'll find "alive". They belonged to my aunt when she was my age! 
p.s.2 I am in love with the Nikes in the last photo before mine♥
