The early Joburg mornings are getting chillier by the day.
I take the bus to get to work every morning – no not the fancy Gautrain or Rea Vaya bus – the big orange Putco bus that you may see every morning on the freeway where people get packed in like sardines – contrary to popular belief, blogger life isn’t as glamorous as our Instagram pages makes it seem.
Anyways walking to the bus stop and waiting for about 10-15 minute for the bus, I realized that my poor little feet freeze in my work pumps then it hit me, why not kop a pair of sneakers? It’s not that cold to be rocking my thick socks and winter boots but why suffer like this when sneakers are all the rage right now?
I’ve always thought that I look silly in sneaks because I have such skinny legs/ankles – I didn’t get the nickname Twiggy because of my model looks LOL. I’ve always felt a little uncool wearing sandles and pumps while hanging out with Joburg’s coolest people in their one of a kind sneakers, so I thought why the hell not jump onto this trend?
Sissy Boy has just released an A/W15 Sports Luxe Range of sneakers so I decided to get myself a cute pair.The range sees the addition of seasonal fabric combinations, textures, styling details and new shapes along with the progression from the first range of sneakers. I chose the black and gold sports pair with rhinestone embellishments. The comfort factor of the Amari sneakers stole my heart more than anything.
Paired with my new favorite Punk & Ivy for LEGiT sweater dress, I think I’m off to a good start of exploring the sneaker/street wear lifestyle.
