Glamour and glitz might be your shoe design choice for evenings out and about, but this season that comes with an extra advantage. It’s called comfort. As seen on the European couture designer catwalks for Autumn/Winter 2014, sneakers are all the rage.
No longer are sneakers just for athletic wear, these athletic-inspired shoes are being worn with silk blouses and designer jeans, as well as with traditional evening wear outfits.
