Mint trainers

Athletic footwear as daywear is a trend that is on the rise, and more options are appearing that can blur the line between a trainer strictly for working out in, and one that can double as a cute weekend shoe option.

When Millet Sports invited me to style a pair of running shoes, it was the color which drew me to this pair of Adidas Adios Boost trainers, but the super cushioned 'boost' sole, offering plenty of support and comfort, combined with the lightness of the shoe, which makes for a pair of very happy feet.

Trainers can be stylish and fun, and the fact that these were mint green made them the perfect choice to wear to the St. Patrick's Day Parade. Even thought it was freezing cold and windy, (guilty of dressing for the weather I want more than the weather that is) not having to worry about my feet becoming achy or fatigued while we stood watching the parade for over an hour was a blessing. And when it came time for the ten minute walk back to the car, I could have practically sprinted.

  12. I have yet to full embrace the trainers trend, but I have to say you tempt me more every time you wear them. But the part of this look I really love is the layering of your sweater, denim jacket and leather jacket - I would never have thought of wearing two jackets together this way but I absolutely love the results!

  13. Nothing better than denim jacket on spring. But it can get better with trainers like yours and leather thrown on your shoulders. So relaxed!

  32. I know its a trend creeping up..- but I relate sneakers not only to sports but also to tourists!
    I always ask myself why are tourists usually so badly put together ? Dont you want to look nice in the pictures you take ? SPend $$ on the trip but look like a bum when you see your pictures of Egypt ?… ignore me - I just saw a couple of tourists and just don't get it.
    I'd wear the mint sneakers with grey jogging pants the day a year I exercise ;)

  33. You have so many cute sneakers Lydia. I love how you layered the 2 jackets together. They look great and keep you warm. I must try.

  34. I love your mint kicks! And great layering with the denim and leather jacket. Love this look. ~Cynthia
