Sneakers, Not Running Shoes
My Chuck Taylors are wearing on me. I mean, they’re not being worn on me very much. Around here, the middle school crowd has completely dominated the Converse market for the last seven years or so. I actually inherited my current pair of Converse sneakers from my son, who outgrew his pair after only a few wearings. And while seven years ago it was tricky to find old school Chucks, now they’re at Target.
I’m ready for some casual sneaks that I won’t see on 11-year-old discount shoppers.

You can see that I’ve chosen a bunch of neutrals, which is just my druthers. These are all available in a whole mess of colors.
I ordered the Bensimon tennis elastique, and I’m happy with the look, though they do run a little small. Old Navy has a very close knock-off right now for $17.
