Why Statement Sneakers Will Be Your Secret Weapon This Spring


I’ve become quite the shoe junkie since the beginning of January, and it started with my Saint Laurent hightop purchase. Fast forward two months and I ended up getting another pair - these incredible Saint Laurent Court Classic SL/01 sneakers with metallic details.

These shoes have been sparking so much joy for me lately (cue the shameless Marie Kondo reference), that I’ve been wearing them daily. They’re the first pair of statement sneakers that mesh seamlessly with my personal style and I love that I can throw them on with almost any outfit. That being said, I truly believe statement sneakers are one of the easiest ways to add effortless character to any look, hence why they’ll be your secret weapons moving into spring!

What I’m Wearing

IRO leather jacket (sold out, similar here)

Saint Laurent sweatshirt (sold out, similar here)

PAIGE Croft super skinny jeans

Saint Laurent SL/01 sneakers (sold out, similar here)

Dior Homme sunglasses



Whether you’re a fan of a classic Saint Laurent pair or the new Valentino Bounce sneakers with feathers on the heels, there’s a statement sneaker out there for everyone.

Just remember to put the trendy shoes aside and think about which sneaker meshes well with your personal style. Don’t go out and buy the Balenciaga Triple S sneakers just because they’re the “cool” thing to wear. Find a pair that you genuinely love that reflects your personal style! Always remember to take your time, think about your purchase and invest in the right pair (or two, or three…).
