I went through my teenage years being the tomboy. I only wore jeans and sneakers. I watched soccer like I invented the game. I remember jumping walls instead of using the gate. The one thing, however, that I could never get myself to do, was to use a cap. I hate a cap (even on men).
I recall a time in my early twenties, when I decided to be a “girl”. I stopped wearing sneakers, and only wore heels when I wore jeans.
That didn’t hold up for too long though.
Before I knew it, I found myself being the store manager of a street-credible sport shop. Sporty clothes and sneakers at staff discount! Heaven! It was then that my love for these shoes were rediscovered, and has not left me since.
I love heels, I love buying them and owning them, but wearing then all the time? Is it womanly possible? The truth is, heels are getting higher, and becoming more uncomfortable. They look gorgeous, I know, but the pain, I hate discomfort of any sort.
But should I find an alternative and ditch the sneakers?
