Over 40 Style Guide

Burgundy velvet sneakers

It seems but a moment ago I was strutting with confidence in 3.5″ heels for a night out on the town. Back in the day (did I just date myself?) these stilletos gave me not only a stylish vertical boost, they made my legs look longer and accentuated any muscle that might have lurked in my calves.

Fast forward to today and my family still laughs uncontrollably at the sight of me attempting to wear a pair of my former favorite date night pumps. There’s a saying, “it’s hard not to look sexy in a pair of high heels”. I beg to differ, as this girl looks like she’s trying to walk a tight rope with leg cramps while balancing a martini on her head!

Now that I’m 55, comfy, stylish and fun shoes trump an impressive pair of sky high pumps every time. Which makes the red hot sneaker trend great news for all of us in this boat.

Here are a few of my favorite sneakers I ordered this year, just in time for the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
