Growing up, especially in my high school years I was always a bit of a tomboy. I was one of the "skater girls" and loved me some high-tops with my Linkin Park blaring out of my Walkman-- I'm not entirely sure if anyone would know what those are anymore? I chose skate style sneakers over most girly sandals and even now I tend to opt for my classic chucks when I'm off duty. It has been quite a while since I purchased a new pair for my collection, I have quite a few variations of Converse kicks but I finally decided to buy my first pair of NikeAir high-tops. These mermaid kicks caught my eye in the window and that mother of pearl sheen made me smile, ear to ear. I knew that I had to have them, they were shiny and reflective and made me happy...how could I resist such a fine piece of work? In the last few months the sports luxe trend has been breaking through the streets of the world and there are plenty of women strutting their hot looks with some killer kicks. I don't think you need to necessarily be a "sporty" kind of gal to be rocking the sneaker look. The wedge on these Nike Air high-tops, transform it from a plain jane runner into a high end feminine look.
Here is some inspiration from the streets (thank you, Pinterest)

Are you a fan? If so, which is your favourite look?
