nonnative Rejoins Converse for Zippered Pro-Leather Hi Sneakers

Reworking the duo’s instant-classic 2016 collaboration, nonnative reunites Converse for a duo of zippered Pro-Leather Hi shoes. The original iterations are tweaked slightly, swapping out longhair suede and pale midsoles for a more worn look.

Offered in navy and grey, the tall sneakers utilize premium smooth suede on the upper, contrasting Converse branding, and a yellowed rubber midsole to reinforce the age of the silhouette — the Pro-Leather Hi made its courtside debut in 1976. nonnative’s preferred zippered tongue gives the kicks a functional edge, though the zipper is removable for those who prefer classic laces.

The collaborative Converse sneakers hit Coverchord site on February 16 before rolling out to other stockists on March 16. Though 2016’s drop retailed for $ 195 USD, expect the new editions to boast a similar price tag. Take a closer look at the shoes below.

Meanwhile, Converse’s most recent JW Anderson collaboration was confirmed for a wider release.

So Many Supra Sneakers Are on Sale at Zappos

Keeping up with the ever-changing fashion trends can be exhausting, but the one style we never have trouble following is athleisure. We adore any trend that lets Us stock up on clothes that are comfortable and stylish all at once. Naturally, we can never own enough leggings, sweatsuits and sneakers. Lucky for our wardrobes, Zappos has a slew of Supra sneakers marked down and our favorite of the bunch is the Supra Scissor.

The shoe comes in three color options and is designed for running, skating and of course, street style. The Supra Scissor features a padded mesh lining, breathable mesh on its upper portion and a sole made of ultra-soft SUPRAFOAM for heel protection and overall comfort. The SUPRAFOAM sole also includes black traction pads meant to prevent slipping. An overall lightweight feel makes the sneaker a practical choice for easy movement.

Additional colors available at varying prices. Prefer another sneaker style? Check out more Supra sneakers on sale. 

Sizes range from 5 to 10 with half sizes included.

The Supra Scissor Sneaker is clearly designed for physical activity. Still, we adore how perfect the shoe is for our casual daytime looks thanks to a multi-texture style and neutral colors for easy mixing and matching. Our favorite version is the black, gold and white version featuring black knit fabric on the top, soft leather details and a white sole.

We’ll be easily pairing these sneakers with a mix of chic tracksuits, leggings, T-shirts, skinny jeans and joggers. The black, gold and white Supra Scissor sneakers will look great paired with an all-white or all-black Adidas tracksuit. We could also slip into black leggings with stylish mesh inserts, a racerback tank and a white, black and gold windbreaker to perfectly match the sneakers. The shoes are even sleek enough to wear with a snug-fitting knit maxidress topped by a moto-style leather jacket.

On days when we prefer a soft pastel hue, the Supra Scissor shoes look beautiful in the Pearl Blue and white style.

We’ll be styling these sneakers with a matching pastel blue velour sweatsuit for a chic monochrome moment. The blue sneakers will also make for a great color blocked addition to a pair of pastel pink joggers and a simple long sleeve white T-shirt. On a day more suited for denim, the blue sneaker will match well with a pair of high-waist skinny jeans in a light blue wash and a cropped sweater in beige or pastel pink.

To add a classic print to our sneaker collections, we can snag the Supra Scissor Sneaker in this dark grey and white sneaker featuring polka dot and triangle prints. These shoes have a playful look to them without appearing to gaudy.

See it: Scoop up the polka dot Supra Scissor Sneakers for $ 80 while so many sizes are still in stock on the Zappos site. Additional colors available at varying sale prices. Prefer another sneaker style? Check out more Supra sneakers on sale. 

These printed sneakers will offer an extra touch of flair to any matching grey jogger set. We could also match these shoes with a grey and white polka dot sweater, dark blue skinny jeans and a leather mini bucket bag. On days when we prefer to wear the sneakers to the gym, we’ll be styling them with our favorite glittery leggings. We could also wear the sneakers with those same glitter leggings and an embellished sweater for a night out.

All three of the sneaker styles would also look great worn with more casual jumpsuits in the trendy utility style or designed with knit material. To layer the look for chillier weather, we can slip into a fuzzy teddy bear coat in beige or tan.

Shoppers who bought and wore the Supra Scissor Sneakers rave about how gorgeous they look. While Zappos labels these sneakers true to size, the shoe runs narrow per the reviews. It’s important to eye the size guide carefully and order one size up if necessary to score the best fit.

Worst fashion trends of 2018: Tiny sunglasses to dad sneakers

They’re called “fashion risks” for a reason— some of them just don’t work. Below are the six sartorial gambles from 2018 with the lowest pay-offs.

Team Boots, Team Sandals or Team Sneakers

Our final poll for 2018 is about footwear. Do you prefer to wear boots, sandals or sneakers? Maybe you prefer the look of one, but the comfort level of another. Or maybe there’s no contest, and you like one type a lot more than the other two. 

Obviously this isn’t about your choice on any particular day. Boots are always going to be more practical than sandals on a cold winter’s day. But which of these three types of footwear do you enjoy wearing the most.

My clientele are a pretty even split between boots and sandals as their favourites of the three, although sneakers are gaining momentum. But my guess is that Team Boots will win the race here today.

I wear all three styles of shoe, but boots most of all because they work best for my climate. I find sandals extremely hard to fit, and impossible to wear unless they’re very soft, flat, reasonably supportive, and in a narrow size. I’ve found two pairs that work and left it at that. I enjoy wearing a white fashion sneaker in the Summer, and LOVE my fleece-lined leather Converse hi-tops for the rest of the year. But I enjoy boots most of all, and have a great assortment that go the distance. I bat for Team Boots.

Over to you. Do you bat for Team Boots, Team Sandals, or Team Sneakers? Tell us why and no batting for more than one team. If you can’t pick a side, feel free to sit this one out on the bench with your favourite meal of the year.

Yes, you can wear sneakers to your holiday party — here’s how

Fab Find: My Favourite Winter Sneakers

I can’t rave enough about these hi-top sneakers from Converse because they are EXTREMELY comfortable and very warm. They’re leather, so they look more polished than the canvas options. Their white soles and toe boxes are iconic, Modern Retro, and add a crisp and prettier touch to the sneaker. They create a tailored fit on the foot despite the size of your ankles, because you can manipulate the width with the laces.

They look streamlined and hip, and work well with cropped pants and jeans. I’ve also worn them with midi dresses and hosiery. They are sufficiently roomy for wider feet, and will accommodate an orthotic if you go up half a size. They run true to size, and work well with socks and knee-highs.

The best part about these hi-tops is their fleece linings, which are super soft and keep your feet toasty warm. The leather is weatherproof, and the soles are grippy and stable on frozen sidewalks.

I was walking around in below freezing temperatures with ice and snow in Salt Lake City for two weeks last month, and these hi-tops are the bomb. I take them along when I see my Dad in the Netherlands in colder weather, and they’re fabulous in the Seattle rain too. Simply wipe them down to keep them clean, or use Oxi Clean on the soles.

I have three pairs of these Winter hi-tops and I’m not opposed to getting more, because they have become a wardrobe essential. I got the black pair about a year and half ago, loved them and got the off-white pair a few months later. This year I bought the cream pair with a watermelon stripe, which work well with a watermelon Furla and new watermelon specs. All three pairs are workhorses, and the most comfortable shoes in my wardrobe. These are 20,000 step city shoes.

There are more variations in colour and style as seen in this collection. Remember that the hi-tops are leather and have fleece linings, and that’s what makes them special and a cut above regular Converse hi-tops. None of the styles have side zippers for easy access, so you have to tie and untie the laces every time. But the most recent pair I got has a hiking boot hook feature at the ankle, making pulling them on and off a little easier and faster.

My favourite sneakers of all time.

Outfit Formula: Suits and Sneakers

Sneakers are the shoe of our fashion era. Full stop. The world LOVES wearing sneakers, and retailers stock them in deep assortments because they sell like hot cakes. It helps that these days “almost” anything goes in fashion and style which means that sneakers can be integrated into most outfits. 

Irregular juxtapositions are another benchmark of our current fashion era. Combining items that used to be unthinkable pairings are totally acceptable and often all the rage. Combining a formal trouser suit with sneakers is an irregular juxtaposition, and my favourite way to interpret the Sporty Luxe look. The vibe is an acquired taste and a fun way to dress down a suit.

The suit renditions here are styled with white sneakers because white is the “it” sneaker colour. Crisp, a Trendy Classic, and somewhat iconic. That said, feel free to add any colour sneaker to a suit. Chuck Taylor Converse sneakers and hi-tops in fun brights, pastels, black, blue or grey look smashing with suits.

The layering tops are casual, which complements the casual vibe of the sneakers. Feel free to add patterned or slogan tees to the outfits.

1. Double-Breasted and Buttoned

YES, you can wear white sneakers with dark hair. No need to follow the bookending styling technique at all. Just like you can rock black shoes with blonde hair. Here, the black ‘80s inspired double-breasted suit is fully buttoned, and worn with straight leg pants. I’d have preferred to see the pants two inches longer, but that’s subjective. Pop a black lace camisole under the blazer so that a little lace peeks out from under the collar of the blazer. Or you could wear a white tee under the blazer. The white sneakers pick up the white stitching and buttons of the suit. Scrunched sleeves add a relaxed touch to the look.

Violeta Contrast Seam Blazer

2. Trendy

A trendy long blazer is paired with matching ankle pants and worn open to create a vertical line down the front of the body. A simple turtleneck is a good layering piece for a suit. Tucking the turtleneck lengthens the leg line from the thighs upward. The white sneakers pick up the white in the checked pattern. Scrunched sleeves add a further relaxed touch to the look.

THEORY Prince of Wales Checked Wool-blend Blazer

3. Maximal Pattern Mix

Bright red tartan and two types of animal print are combined with a white tee that picks up the white in the sneakers. The white sneakers further complement the light neutrals in the pattern. A smashing maximal look that can take you just about anywhere. To work, a night out, the theater, an event, or fashion show.

Topshop Tartan Suit

4. Eleganty Flared

This rendition is of the most interest to me because the flares are combined with flat sneakers instead of heels. That’s very liberating, and a newer way to wear a classic ‘70s inspired suit. The tucked top creates a longer leg line which offsets the flat-footed feeling of the sneakers. The white top picks up the white of the sneakers. Scrunched sleeves relax the formality of the suit.

ASOS DESIGN Tailored Check Slim Flare Pants

5. Tailored & Pretty

Here’s a classic tailored suit with a regular length blazer and tapered pants. The striped layering top adds a further classic yet bold touch. The white of the stripe is repeated in the white of the sneakers. The pants are very cropped, but feel free to wear full-length tapered pants.

Boden British Tweed 7/8 Pants

You can wear this look in Winter with knee-highs, trouser socks, woolly socks or even patterned socks if you dare. Pop a cocoon coat or puffer over the lot with cosy Winter accessories and thermals and Bob’s your uncle.

I wore formal trouser suits with sneakers back in the ‘90s and ‘00s. I have two very old suits that I’m keeping despite rarely wearing them. An all-season grey Theory pinstripe suit in immaculate condition, and a funky cropped black Summer suit from Tokyo. Both are sentimental pieces that I can’t pass on. I’m going to haul out the grey pinstripe suit that has long flared pants and combine it with my new chunky white ‘80s inspired SAS sneakers and see what happens. I also might do a fun plaid or velvet trousers suit for my holiday look this year. My thinking cap is on.
