Nothing beats 'sneakers' during winters
When it comes to footwear, women have a wide variety of options to choose from, be it sandals, flip-flops, pumps, stilettoes, wedges etc. These days, they pay as much meticulous attention to footwear as they do to their clothes and make-up. Shoes give completeness to the look and also add more oomph factor. However, during the winter season, girls usually love to sport converse/sneakers, leaving aside the other choices of footwear. Sneakers basically refer to footwear made of flexible material, typically with a rubber-made sole and the upper part being made of leather or canvas.
Converse is the original American shoe company that has been manufacturing shoes, lifestyle fashion and athletic apparel since the early 20th century. However, practically speaking, there are actually few people who buy the product from the authentic Converse showrooms. Since sneakers are also made by non-branded show companies, girls usually opt for these as they come in lower prices. Sneakers are now available in a huge range of colours, from reds, greens, yellows to even neon shades, and are being loved immensely! Those with bright, psychedelic designs, patterns and prints are also extremely popular, on account of being ‘cool’ and eye-catching.
Besides the appealing look and glamour quotient, sneakers are loved for other important reasons as well. Firstly, during the rest of the year, girls wear a variety of apparel, such as dresses, traditional wear, western wear etc. for which they need to mix and match their footwear accordingly. But during winters, they almost always stick to denims, paired with woollens, jackets, pullovers, cardigans etc. and sneakers go very well with such outfits, adding to the spunk and casual charm about it. Secondly, the weather gets very dry and rough during these few months of the year, thus girls prefer shoes that cover the maximum surface area of their skin so as to prevent exposure to the weather that leads to coarseness and chapped skin. Sneakers serve this purpose wonderfully, as well as help to beat the chill as they cover our feet to the most and retains the warmth.
Thus, though originally they were considered as sporting apparel, today they are a significant part of a girl’s winter fashion statement even as casual footwear. The comfort and versatility factors make them a favourite and thus girls usually prefer to flaunt them and nothing else when the mercury drops. Be it from the reputed brands such as Nike, Puma, Adidas, Reebok etc., or the non-branded ones that are available in plenty in the markets, they are indispensable as soon as the nip in the air sets in!
