FASHION GUIDE; SOME OF THE BEST SNEAKER BRANDS TO INVEST IN RIGHT NOW #COMFORTOVERFASHION.

As a typical African Woman Lady, i was really glad to see a lot of attendee's at the just concluded Lagos Fashion & Design Week, kicking it on the streets and on the scene in their sneakers or flats under the s scorching Lagos sun, it was the practical thing to do really. Half the time, it beats me how ladies, are able to strut 24/7, 7 days a week without any days off in heels?! Dont get it twisted i love my lady pointed heels but these days, i am all about the comfortable life. Even Victoria Beckham, who is only one of the most fashionable women in the world and is known for wearing sky-high 6'' stilettos once said, and i quote "i cant concentrate in flats". Fast-forward to 2016, she has a damaged foot and cant seem to get enough of her flat shoes. She updated her famous quote saying "i am all about getting things done and moving around easily". Somethings have to give way right? Anyways, in the spirit of Comfortable Fashion alternatives (sneakers), i'm guiding you on some of the very best and most lucrative alternatives to splurge on. See more after the cut.
