And, the answer lies in keeping a casual and cool vibe to whatever you happen to pair with your Keds sneakers.

Maxi skirts look great with the new Keds sneakers. Any type of maxi skirt in a cotton or other casual material is ideal. Pair your Keds sneakers and maxi skirt with a trendy crop top. The maxi skirt you wear with your Keds can be black or brightly colored, but the rule is that whatever color your skirt happens to be, wear your Keds in a different color. Never match your Keds to your skirt, this looks dated and not very unique. When wearing a black skirt, wear a pair of bright red Keds and a gray or white crop top and when wearing a brightly colored maxi skirt, wear a pair of muted white, black or navy Keds.

Dress the outfit you wear with Keds up with lots of jewelry. The best item to wear with your Keds is a lot of jewelry. Long, multi-strand necklaces are perfect when paired with your Keds sneakers. Big hoop earrings or lots of bracelets also make a statement, when pairing them with your Keds.

The History of Red Sneakers

15 Mar

Red sneakers have a long and fulfilling history going back to the turn of the twentieth century. Wait? Turn of the twentieth century?

Yes, in fact the humble sneaker has a history as long as your car and longer than many of your most treasured items in your family’s household.

Many believe the earliest sneaker, including the red sneaker, go back as far as 1917 to the basketball player, Chuck Taylor’s famous design. However, this is incorrect, the red sneaker goes back even further to as early as 1907, to the invention of vulcanized rubber by Charles Goodyear, almost immediately afterwards companies began producing athletics shoes of various designs and varieties.

However, Chuck Taylor can in fact trace red canvas sneakers back to the famous design in 1917, who suggested the canvas sneaks design when he was playing basketball professionally. In 1916, a company called Keds began producing sneakers, one of which was Red Keds. Red Keds in fact were the first to use the term “sneakers” in reference to their shoes’ rubber soles ability to “sneak” around corners.

Since then sneakers, including the various red sneakers design have been a staple of teenage fashion. Whether it is for their athletic uses or through the use of various subcultures among teenage fashion populaces, sneakers have become a commonplace sight on many school campuses. Since the 1980s and 1990s teenagers among the “punk” and “Goth” subcultures of teenage students have been wearing sneakers such as Red Keds due to both their simplicity and variety of design.

Many famous wearers of red canvas sneakers include Led Zeppelin, Woody Allen, Dustin Hoffman, and more. These have increased the exposure of the sneaker design among the teenage and other populaces in the fashion industry. Leading to their use in the casual shoe industry among followers of fashion trends. Today many teenagers wear them as a symbol of pride and solidarity among their peers.

However, red sneakers are still popular in their intended use in the field of athletics. Their rubber soles allow for continuous use on surfaces such as basketball courts and their canvas lining provides an aerated atmosphere for one’s feet to feel comfortable in playing. Ever since that first endorsement sneakers of all kinds have been a staple of basketball and basketball culture among the teenage fashion trends. Red sneakers in particular are a particularly fashionable version of the classic red canvas sneaks design. Sports endorsers are bigger and better, increasing the marketing and exposure of these shoes among the athletics fashion populaces.

Therefore, whether one wears them for fashion or for practicality a pair of red keds or red canvas sneaks is the way to go for comfort and practicality. Use in both athletics and fashion keeps the sneaker at the forefront of clothing and fashion design and trending. The sneaker has come a long way in our time, and shows every sign of continuing on as strong as ever, and those original designs are still with us to this day.

Top 5 Women Sneaker Trends Spring/Fall 2012

1 Mar

As spring fast approaches, women are searching for the top sneaker trends that will set the fashion scene for the upcoming seasons of the year. Catching these trends as they develop will keep them alert for the cool sneaker designs for school and work as well as getting good sneaker reviews which can separate the solid, durable brands from the lesser ones. The upcoming trends cover teenage girls sneakers as well as women sneaker trends.

What is certainly true about this year is that the trends we saw last fall will continue in some fashion as a relatively warm winter in the US is quickly leading to an early spring. Sneakers however, are always highly popular whether going for the athletic look or for those who want more casual fare. However, there are strong indications that a large part of the top 10 sneakers for girls and women will reflect a brighter, more colorful look which is indicative of changing times. 

Hotness: Bright, bold colors from the new Gucci collection of sneakers marks not so much a turning point, but a continuation of a trend that began last fall. Perhaps due to more positive indicators in the national economy along with a Presidential election, the feeling of change is in the air and with that comes styles that are generally more attention getting.

Ultra-High Tops: The high top sneaker comes in and out of favor over the years. What was once popular in the mid-1950’s has had its share of peaks and valleys since. However, a new type of ultra-high top sneaker which goes way beyond the ankle is currently making a statement on the fashion scene. This could be a trend to jump onto, especially in the early spring and then early fall when the weather begins to change.

Exotic Prints: If the recent Oscar Awards ceremony is any indication, bold is back in both colors and new prints that help grab attention and augment the sneaker look. Thanks to advancing technology an entire new line of exotic prints decorate sneakers today and that trend only looks to get stronger in the near future.

Tie-Offs: Some brands of new high tops feature a single, larger string to tie off the top of the sneaker. This adds more personality and uniqueness to the sneaker design itself as teenagers can add their own style and accoutrements to this larger fabric strand which ties off the top of the sneaker.

Glitter: It seems that glitter is in style every spring season, probably because escaping the doldrums of winter brings out the glitter in all of us, especially with the trend heading towards brighter, bolder colors. Unique glitter patterns and accessories will augment women’s sneakers for the near future as is common with this seasonal trend.

Exotic, bright colors enhanced by larger sneaker designs such as the ultra-high tops will set the trends for the spring season. Take advantage by shopping at your favorite online sneaker store and order your pair quickly to take advantage of the warm weather!

What are the current sneaker fashion trends for Women?

20 Feb

Women have an affinity for shoes. Sneakers are no exception. They want to wear something that is comfortable, high quality, helps them move with ease, and at a great bargain. There are different designs and creations which are being made all the time for women’s sneakers. It is a good idea to stay up with the latest fashion trends to stay current.

Currently people can purchase magazines, and search online for what the latest models, and celebrities are wearing. Wouldn’t it be good to find out what the trends are going to be before everyone else wears them and the price becomes too expensive to purchase? Women are very particular about what they will put on their feet. It must serve a purpose and look great at the same time.

The latest fashions can be inspired by the top designers or even a new revolution in how the shoes are made. Different brand names will come up with ideas for exercise, everyday wear, upscale wear, and simply shoes for different age groups. If you know what they are ahead of time you can be one of the first people to wear them.

Some of my choices are:

1) Prada sneaker shoes for women (Spring – Summer 2012)

Author comment: "Very stylish and shiny black!"

 

2) Y-3 2012 Spring/summer Black Savage sneakers

Author comment: "Loved those! Look like they are from space + some country's flag - Russia, France...Cool!"

3) Christian Louboutin men’s canvas sneakers

Author comment: "Might as well fit for a great girl's night outfit! Donno the model... found only image. But they are super stylish. I guess you can actually hurt yourself with the pins ... (joking!)"

You might see or spot a sneaker that you like, but it may not be of high quality. You want to know what critics and other fashion experts are stating about the shoe. You do not want to do or create unnecessary harm to your feet. They need as much support and comfort as possible.

Another thing that we, females, love is to get a bargain. If there was an upcoming sale or discount that they can find for the shoes which are currently popular they would want to know about it. No one wants to pay full price for anything if at all possible. Unless you have the time it just is not possible to look for each and every bargain out there. It is a great idea to let someone else find the deals for you and let you know about them. It saves you time and money.

Sneakers impact people’s lives in various ways. You might use them for your exercise routine. You want something that might give you an edge if you participate in sports at school or for your own personal benefit. If you have a job that requires you to stand on your feet all day, you need something that won’t make you tired. It will help give you support. You might also want sneakers that can match your different outfits that you like to wear. You might not want to wear casual shoes, heels, or sandals with everything. You need something different to change your look. Sneakers can provide that for you.

It is possible to learn about sneakers for yourself and others. You can get the best bargains as well as find out about new inventions and creative additions made within sneakers by some of the top manufacturers. You can discover what these trends are before the general public.

Walking on Air: Sneaker Fashion for Girls & Teenagers

16 Feb

In this day and age, shoe fashion rules are less astringent and kinder to one’s feet. There is a fashionable alternative to teeter tottering while wearing shoes with extremely high heels and ultra thick platforms, running the risk of breaking an ankle or falling flat on your face.  Not even Hollywood goddesses are immune from having a shoe accident on the most important day of their lives!!

While you cannot wear them all the time nor can you do so for all occasions, these shoes have become more versatile over time and women and girls from all kinds of households are wearing them everywhere they go.  The wearing of sneakers is no longer confined to the sports arenas or solely for sporting events. Many teenagers, especially, favor putting on a pair of oftentimes personalized sneakers. After all, they can be very comfortable! Teenage sneaker culture has transformed these pedestrian shoes into a medium to make a fashion statement. Called “tennis shoes” once upon a time and coming only in white canvas material, sneakers now come in solid colors of the rainbow or any combination thereof.  They can come out in either “low-cut”, “high top” or “high cut” styles, with some styles designed with platform but still made of rubber soles.

In fact, for most sneakers, the only qualifying characteristic for a pair of shoes to be called sneakers is that the soles are made from rubber or variations of this material. The materials used for the body of the shoe itself now range from all kinds of stuff, from the traditional canvas to suede to leather to patent leather to Naugahyde or any combinations of these. One can say that the sneakers as a shoe item has come of age and taken over the fashion scene.  They have become favored not only by teens but by their moms, as well.  Many moms, for that matter have rediscovered how comfortable wearing a pair of sneakers can be. The fashion craze is also helped a lot by many Hollywood sirens coming out and wearing them everywhere, although they may still make their presence known on the Red Carpet, if they have not yet done so by this time.

Sneaker fashion designers have taken liberties and gone to town with what they still call “sneakers.” Now they look like nothing that is related to the sports shoes that were the original take off point.  The high fashion houses in Paris and in other fashion centers in the world have joined in making the latest fashionable version of the sneaker with the equivalent pricey price tags. Some shoes have their front parts cut off so that they look like peep-toe pumps. Some styles come with rhinestones and sequins and multi-colored shoe laces adorned with pompoms, little bells or other attention  catching gadgets that can make you a standout in a crowd. Shopping for a pair of sneakers can become a most wonderful journey with more options available than one can imagine would be possible. The best sneaker brands no longer come from the renowned manufacturers of sports equipment but are now the high fashion houses in Europe.  The humble sneaker shoes have arrived and have become the latest darlings of the world of shoes.
