If there’s one trend we’re fully on board with right now, it’s sneakers. A cool pair of comfy lace-ups is the perfect way to dress down a fancier frock or add an unpredictable twist to a more casual ensemble. To ring in spring and showcase the trend we’re most in love with, ModCloth fave Gola invited four bloggers to show off their sneakers. Check out what they had to say about these terrific trainers below, and be sure to click through to each blog to read their full posts.
“My new Gola sneakers were waiting for me after a long car ride home, so they were the perfect comfy option to slip on for a walk around my neighborhood to stretch my legs. I don’t usually wear sneakers, but I have to admit the comfort level of these, plus the galaxy print is winning me over.” — Rebecca of The Clothes Horse
“When you’re a kid you don’t need to go to a gym, watch aerobic videos, or use fancy exercise equipment to stay fit. Staying in shape isn’t a chore, it’s just a side-effect of play! I like to take the same approach to staying fit as a grown-up. Why hit the treadmill when I can jump rope instead? Hopping around with a skip-it on my ankle is just as effective as an elliptical, but twice as fun! And just when I thought my workouts couldn’t get any more fun, I added hot pink Gola sneakers to the mix!” — Kate of Scathingly Brilliant
“I love taking advantage of the first warm days of the season. My Golas are perfect for jumping into and hitting the nearest park or local market. Being outside is good for the soul.” — Katie of Skunkboy
“With a growing baby bump and spring just starting to make its appearance, I’ve been looking for any and every excuse to get out of the house. Whether it’s a few laps around the local park, or spending a few hours at the mall preparing for this baby, I’ve been logging some serious miles when it comes to walking (shopping totally counts as cardio, right?!). The galaxy Golas are the perfect blend of style and comfort rolled into one little shoe, I can dress them up or down, depending on my mood and location, and I know I’ll always be comfortable. And the best part? I don’t feel like my lower body is killing after one lap around the outlet mall haha!” — Kaelah of The Clueless Girl’s Guide
