Let's Hear it for the Boys

In the fashion world, there are few things worse than spending a day in uncomfortable shoes. Some may say that beauty is pain, but it shouldn’t be torture. Some shoes can take a while to break in, causing blisters and cuts all over the place. I can’t imagine this sounding appealing to anyone. The moral of the story is: a great pair of shoes can make or break an outfit. Nowadays, there are shoes that can provide fashion and function. Nike sneakers are a prime example of a shoe providing comfort as well as an aesthetically pleasing article of clothing.

This week’s Fashionisto is wearing a sweet pair of Nike sneakers. The body of the sneaker is black with a mint sole. On the toe of the shoe is a hot pink Nike check. He is also wearing a pair of medium wash jeans. For the top, he is wearing a white polo T-shirt with a navy collar and navy, white and pink stripes at the edge of the sleeves. This Fashionisto played up a polo and jeans look with colorful sneakers that made the outfit pop.

Hint: A pair of colorful shoes is not hard to find with the help of the Internet. If there isn’t a pair that suits you, Nike ID makes it easy to make one. The Nike Air Max in neon yellow, light blue and dark blue is a great combination of colors, especially if you want to show some Bobcat pride. A colorful graphic top, such as this Biggie Warhol T-shirt, can be paired to match the shoes. For pants, try a lighter color that won’t take away from the colors of the shoes or T-shirt, such as khaki chino pants.
