1 Comment

How do you wind down on after a long day’s work? Surely not click a spreadsheet in the comfort of your pyjamas at home to crunch more numbers, right? Like supermodels who spend all day strutting up and down the runways in heels, more often than not, it’s sneakers that they spend their downtime roaming around in.

And that makes the case for sneakers all the more powerful. Kicks – pumped up or not, are so incredibly comfortable and versatile it’s hard not to love them. They work for any look, from girly to edgy and everything in between! If the glamourous jetset aren’t afraid to slip into them, neither should we.

See how these 5 supermodels work their thang in their sneakers. Try not to rush out and build your sneaker collection after reading this, I dare you!

 1. Girly (floral sneakers)

The Victoria’s Secret Brazilian bombshell, Alessandra Ambrosio, looks fresh and feminine in light wash skinny jeans, a cream colored knit sweater, and floral sneakers, which matches her floral cat’s eye sunglasses. With minimal accessories and her sun-streaked brown hair in a loose knot, this look is effortless and breezy.

2. Glam (wedge sneakers)

With that black leather jacket, dark wash jeans, shades and wedge sneakers, British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s urban chic outfit is THE outfit for the glamorous jet-setter. Those black Isabel Marant Betty high-top sneakers (made of leather and suede) are practical enough for getting around, while her blue Hermes bag adds an unexpected pop of colour to her edgy outfit.

3. Edgy (leather sneakers)

Czech super model and former Victoria’s Secret angel Karolina Kurkova is killing it with this cool urbanista outfit. A loose printed top with a trenchcoat-that’s-not-a-trenchcoat gives off a laidback vibe that is toughened up with her black Monika Chiang high-tops, leather leggings, and a structured handbag. A pair of sunglasses completes the look for this city girl.

 4. Preppy

Karlie Kloss nails the All-American look here with her black Converse sneakers, white shorts and black long sleeved tank. She would look right at home at the country club with this preppy tennis-inspired outfit, methinks.

5. Sporty

Australian Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr wore her olive-green Isabel Marant sneakers with a striped tee and dark skinny jeans. The loose striped top gives off a sporty vibe that totally agrees with her shoes. Minimalist accessories like a roomy tote bag and sunnies are all you need for this pared down, girl-about-town look.
