Today my dad enlightened me about a preppy tennis shoe! I never wear tennis shoes unless I'm doing something active like working out. I hate the look of a tennis shoe (again, except for working out/active purposes) meaning I just can't stand when i see people with tennis shoes and jeans on. Being at a large university, I have to walk, a lot, and a lot being an understatement. I wear out pairs of shoes in literally a short month. My flip flops break, (first day of being at college, my favorite hot pink steve madden croc embossed sandals broke, I was quite embarrassed, thank goodness I was on the way back to my dorm) my flats soles wear out, and my feet are to cold in the winter to wear anything but Uggs (yes, they're ugly, but my oh my are they warm). So enough about my hatred of tennis shoes, here are some preppy, comfortable, and well made alternatives to tennis shoes:
Jack Purcell (converse), can also be found hereThese are the John Varvatos Jack Purcell shoes made by converse, these are the cutest in my opinion, my dad has these (they are unisex).
That's a picture of my dads, you can't tell in either picture, but the shoe isn't just pale blue, it's very fine seersucker, almost just pin-striped-esque. I don't own a pair but I can tell you that I will be putting in my order with Converse within the week!
Here are some more options:
Sperry Top-Sider Boat ShoesI'm sure most of you readers already know that these are the best shoes in the entire world! I was looking on the website and saw these and think they are very very cute (and they're only $50!)! I don't have this pair, I have this style, but instead of the nantucket red, mine are white with metallic gold and silver embroidered shells and the navy part in the picture is a tna/oliveish color. I love them so much, they match with everything, and are so nautical! I'll take a picture of my Sperry's and other preppy shoes and put it in my next post.
Rocket Dog Preppie Madras Boatshoe
These are a steal at $35, they are so fun, and look comfortable. however I've never seen them in person.
Alright, that's enough preppy shoes for now. I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday.
