If there’s one thing that can always be said about the event industry, it’s that it will certainly keep you on your toes. However, anyone who has ever tried to organize an event up on their toes in high heels or in uncomfortable dress shoes will tell you that it almost makes more sense to wear combat boots than traditional footwear. Event coordinators need to be able to cross large rooms quickly, move from indoors to outdoors, walk safely in kitchens, and keep moving for several hours at a time both leading up to, during, and after the event.
Thankfully, the fashion world has heard the world’s cry for comfort and answered with upscale new twists on everyone’s favorite shoe – the sneaker. No longer reserved for sports or the gym, top fashion houses from around the globe now make high-end, event-worthy sneakers worth being seen in. A few of our favorites:
Golden Goose: Inspired by the skateboarding styles of Venice Beach and Los Angeles, this US brand mixes lived-in imperfection with high-design glitz, bling, and texture.
Burberry: The iconic tartan makes an instant statement as a sneaker, signaling that this is not your ordinary footwear.
Christian Louboutin: Gorgeous colorful prints, premium leathers, and, yes, the famous red outer sole all make each pair a recognizable fashion statement
Prada: Minimalist style paired with its famous triangle logo have created the little-black-dress of sneakers, perfect for almost any occasion.
Jimmy Choo: Almost like jewelry for your feet, these designs are as eye catching as they are comfortable.
