• Here’s a fashion shoe trend women over 50 can love (and a lot of other people, too). White sneakers are a hot trend on the streets of New York and Europe. Here’s what you need to know. white7

    1. The sneakers are crisp and clean, in white or off-white, and made of canvas, leather or a combination of both.

    2. They look best worn with casual, yet fashionable outfits. (These aren’t shoes you wear for working out or hiking.)

    3. Black, white and denim are the colors of the outfits most often paired with white sneakers.

    4. No socks are visible, but some ankle or leg usually is. Some of the styles have a loafer look with a rubber sole.

    5. Many styles are made of leather and special cleaners or tools are often available.

    6. The best part – they are incredibly comfortable, even for women over 50 with problem feet. They are usually very accommodating to bunions, corns and other issues. Some styles have a little elevation in the heel, which can be more comfortable than a totally flat shoe. Almost anyone will enjoy long walks in these shoes.

      Does your website have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

      How is this a trend? Say it ain’t so! Thanks to Jerry Seinfeld you couldn’t find a pair of black–much less colored–sneakers in the 90s. We’re finally past that time and people are bringing it back? Not for me, thanks!

      While some young women are wobbling on 5 inch heels (with extra platforms even!) I will be sprinting by in tennis shoes, proving that youth and high spirits is no competition for old age and treachery! (I don’t know who said that–sounds Machiavellian but a dark side of me likes it.)
