This Is The Most-Searched Fashion Trend Of 2017 (It’s Not What You Think!)
If you use search engines to style talk, then it's likely that you typed THIS key phrase into your search bar at least once last year: sneakers! Whether it was Nike Cortez or Fenty x PUMA is a matter of personal taste, but one thing we can guarantee is that every fashion girl was fixated on them in 2017. Know how we know? Sneakers are now the most-searched fashion item, according to a report from fashion search platform Lyst. And for the first year ever, they exceeded "handbag" searches. Whoa! https://www.instagram.com/p/BXniHHoDSAG/?hl=en&taken-by=kendalljenner According to over three million searches last year, "Sneakers are officially the new handbags." Lyst cites the fascination for kicks like Rihanna's Fenty x PUMA bow sneakers--which was searched every seven seconds in March of last year--as being big drivers of the trend. Wowza! This is significant because handbags have been #1 fashion status symbol for year (decades?). To have them take a back seat to the ever-popular casual footwear style means that the personal style and trends really have taken a sharp turn in recent years. You can definitely credit the unstoppable athleisure trend for why style bloggers this year were more likely to be seen swagging out in Stan Smiths than Louboutins. And that goes for super models, It girls, and celebrities, too. https://www.instagram.com/p/Ba4bgwaHgoq/?hl=en&taken-by=bellahadid
How To Clean White Reebok Classics So They Look Brand New
Thanks to street style and the emergence of the athleisure trend, white sneakers have become super trendy in the fashion world.

Here's how to keep your Reebok Classics looking fresh, clean, and brand spanking new! #RoadTrip Rule: Best room goes to the one with the freshest kicks. Whose got dibs? ✋ #ClassicLeather #thisISclassic 👟: Classic Leather | Available on Reebok.com! A post shared by Reebok Classic (@reebokclassics) on Sep 7, 2017 at 9:58am PDT What You'll Need: 1 medium size bowl 1 soft toothbrush 1 cup of water 5 tablespoons of baking soda 1-2 tablespoons of dish soap 1-2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide Clear nail polish remover Cotton balls Step 1: Untie and remove the laces and wash them in the washing machine. If it is laundry day and you already have your whites separated, just throw the laces in with it. Use hot water, bleach, and laundry detergent as you would with any regular load of whites. Step 2: Add 1 cup of water, 5 tablespoons of baking soda, 1-2 tablespoons of dish soap, and 1-2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide to a medium size bowl and mix. You can add less or more of the following ingredients depending on how dirty your Reebok Classics are. Step 3: Dip a toothbrush (not the one you brush your teeth with!!) into the mixture, apply it to the shoes, and begin scrubbing. Remember: Reebok Classics are made with premium, soft garment leather, so you'll want to scrub gently. Once you begin to see dirt lift from the shoe, wipe them down with a damp cloth or a wet paper towel. Step 4: Moisten a cotton ball with clear nail polish remover (do not use a colored nail polish remover as it may stain the shoe) and swipe it all over the shoe. The nail polish remover should help remover any additional scuffs and marks on the shoes. Just be careful not to rub off any polish on your nails! Continue until the shoes are squeaky clean! Step 5: Re-lace your sneakers and marvel at your squeaky clean white sneakers! If you are more of a visual learner, watch how to clean your Reebok Classics here! Need more sneaker inspiration?

HACK: Here’s How To Bar Lace Your Sneakers (Vans, Stan Smiths, And More)
Fashion girls everywhere have traded in their high heels for street style sneakers thanks to brands like Vans and Adidas, and we're honestly living for it. Trendy sneakers that don't sacrifice style for comfort are our favorite. You can even add a different flair to your sneakers by modifying your laces once you choose what pair of shoes you want to wear to complete any of your looks. And while you already know that you can wear sneakers either dressed up or dressed down, you can also tie your laces in a different way than you normally do to make your sneakers easier to put on and much more comfortable. So, what's the solution to do that, you ask? You can simply choose to bar lace your sneakers. Bar laced sneakers rather than your traditional criss-crossed laces make it so much easier to slip on your shoes, plus you don't have to worry about your laces coming undone throughout the day. Don't worry if you don't know how to bar lace your sneakers-- we've got you covered. Let's dive into how you can straight bar lace your shoes before heading out the door thanks to just a few simple and easy steps.... 1. Insert your laces into the first sneaker eyelets on both the left and right sides of your sneaker with the laces pointing down. This is how you'll create your first bar lace. You will want to make sure that the laces are pulled through evenly so you can easily bar lace your sneakers from there. You definitely don't want to end up with uneven laces because you'll have to start over when you realize you can't continue to the last eyelets. 2. Take the lace that came out from under the first eyelet on one side of your shoe and push it up through that same side's second sneaker eyelet. Then, cross that lace over to the opposite side to push it down into the second sneaker eyelet on that side of the sneaker. Voila, this creates your second bar lace. Simply follow these steps until you get to the last eyelets. You can also follow a closer look for this step-by-step process on how to straight bar lace your sneakers on our SheFinds YouTube channel here: [embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6sG8K_ce0PI[/embed] And remember, adjusting your sneaker laces is always a good time to clean finally clean those laces too. Sure, cleaning your sneakers and swapping out your laces for ones that look like new probably slips your mind. Odds are, it's not until the moment when you're getting a close view of your sneakers that you realize just how dirty they've become. Luckily, we've got tips on how you can best clean your sneakers before you bar lace them, no matter the type of material they're made of.

3 Nike Cortez Dupes That Are Just As Amazing As The Originals
Whether you’re a huge fan of retro ‘70s footwear or simply appreciate a light running shoe that doubles as street footwear (feel free to eliminate the running part), the Nike Cortez is an amazing and popular style to consider. The Cortez was actually the very first track shoe created by Nike and its 1972 release coincided with the Summer Olympics, where it was seen by millions and quickly garnered a cult following. The sneaker is deceptively simple in its design: older styles were made with leather before Nike switched to lighter weight nylon and suede and the sneaker has foam in all the right places to absorb shock and provide a comfortable experience. As for the outside design, it’s classic and clean, consisting of little more than Nike’s trademark swoosh symbol on the side. After breaking sales records as a top-notch running shoe, the Nike Cortez enjoyed a long, steady ride on the pop culture train — and it continues to be an uber popular sneaker. Hip hop artists were often seen in videos in the ‘80s and ‘90s wearing Nike Cortez and even Tom Hanks’ character in Forest Gump rocks a pair of red, white, and blue Cortez gifted to him by his childhood sweetheart. There’s no doubt: the Nike Cortez is a great sneaker — but there’s a catch, of course. A pair can set you back more than $100 with few models selling for less than $60. And that’s why you need to know about these Nike Cortez dupes. Puma Turin Sneakers This unisex style, which is only available in men’s sizes, has more in common with soccer sneakers than jogging shoes, but the leather upper and Puma formstrip remind us of the Nike Cortez. It has a rubber outsole for grip and an EVA midsole for cushioning and comes in colors like white and gray, navy, and classic blue and white. New Balance 574 Retro Sport Talk about the ultimate street style sneaker: the New Balance 574 Retro Sport was created in 1988 as a mash-up of two popular New Balance styles and with one goal in mind: to be compatible with as many different outfits as possible. It’s the mesh and suede sneaker you can wear with skirts, dresses — everything. It comes in three colors — sea salt and red, sea salt and electric blue, and sea salt and powder — and was designed with midsole technology that provides the ultimate comfort and stability. Onitsuka Tiger Serrano The Onitsuka Tiger Serrano sneakers come from the same 1970s fitness roots as the Nike Cortez. This lightweight running shoe has a lightweight upper and spiked rubber outsole and dual-overlay suede on the toe cap. A padded tongue and collar provide extra comfort and support. The brand's signature stripes will remind you of Nike, but its shade options are even more dynamic. There are crisp, clean color combinations like red, white and blue — as well as unique hues like mauve and white, India ink and pink, and black with blue and white polka dots.

How To Clean White Adidas Stan Smith Sneakers So They Look Brand New
I recently got my hands on a brand new pair of Adidas Stan Smith sneakers. When I took them out of the box, I immediately noticed that the leather was different from my other white sneakers. It was perfectly white and smooth. I was almost afraid to wear them in fear of getting them scuffed. Part of the reason I love Adidas sneakers is how clean and white they look. Dirty white sneakers just don't have the same aesthetic. But was the point of having a pair of coveted Stan Smiths if I never got to show them off? In order to keep my kicks in perfect condition, the first thing I did was pretreat the leather with a stain and water repellent spray. Make sure the shoes are clean and dry before spray them. Then hold the can 6 to 8 inches away from the show and spray evenly, covering the entire area of the shoe. Use a cloth to dab and soak up any excess product. Allow the shoes to completely dry for at least 24 hours. I recommend using Jason Markk Premium Stain and Water Repellent ($17). This spray is basically a force field for shoes. After pretreating my sneakers, I started using the following method to clean them on a regular basis. This method is relatively easy and will keep your Adidas sneaks looking brand new. 1. First, I fill a bowl with warm water. 2. Then, add a few drops of laundry detergent to the warm water and mix it together. Let it sit for a few minutes. You can also use a few drops of dish washing soap. 3. Dip a clean wash cloth into the soapy water. Make sure the cloth is damp not soaking wet. 4. Use the damp cloth to spot clean the sneakers. You can also scrub the area with a clean toothbrush. 5. With a dry towel, wipe the sneakers clean. Let the sneakers dry in a warm place. Be sure to let the sneakers dry completely before wearing or storing them. Don't ever wear your sneakers when they are wet. Dirt is more likely to stick to wet sneakers. Plus, moisture can cause weaken the fibers in shoes causing them to become weaker and lose their shape (wikiHow). Another easy way to spot clean leather sneakers is to use a shoe cleaning wipe. I usually keep a few of the Jason Markk Quick Wipes ($3) in my bag. It might seem like overkill, but these wipes are a great way to clean your sneakers immediately after they get scuffed. Whatever you do, don't put your white leather sneakers in the washing machine to clean them. After all, would you put you leather handbag in the washing machine? Absolutely not. The washing machine can be extremely rough on sneakers, causing unnecessary wear and tear. Worst of all, the washing machine can also turn white rubber yellow. Nobody wants white leather sneakers with yellow rubber soles. Don't forget to wash your laces. Unlike sneakers, you can throw shoelaces in the wash. Just put them in a garment bag and put them in the wash on cold. Clean laces with help your sneakers look nice and new (a detail people often forget). For more tips, check out how to keep black clothing from fading and how to prevent the dye from your jeans from rubbing off on everything.

These Are The Amazing Running Sneakers That Finally Helped Me Exercise Without Pain
Full disclosure: these Merrell All Out Crush sneakers are marketed as trail running sneakers. As a NYC resident, however, I don't do much trail running. That being said, I do run on a treadmill almost every day and there's no way I could maintain my workout regimen without these sneakers. They totally saved my fitness #goals. About two years ago, I started exercising regularly aka running two to four miles on the treadmill every morning. I was fine for about three months before I started to experience the worst pain in my shins and calves. I slowed my paced, tried running every other day, even tried walking and nothing helped. Until I switched to these sneakers, that is. I'm no doctor, but I'm pretty sure it has something to do with how insanely lightweight these sneakers are combined with the amazing traction the soles offer. I've honestly never worn a sneaker so light; it almost feels as if I'm not wearing anything. Except, of course, I am because the sole offers such great support and grip. I honestly can't stop telling people how amazing these sneakers; they're so good. If you're not feeling the pink, no worries. These sneakers come in five colors, including a can't-go-wrong black pair. Try them ASAP--I promise you won't regret it!

This Is What To Wear With Slip-On Sneakers (Don’t Go Sockless!)
I have a legit fear of my shoes smelling and other people catching a whiff. So whenever I want to wear any type of low sneakers, like my slip-ons, going sockless is just not an option. But, when I do wear socks with my slip-ons, something doesn't look quite right--there's always extra fabric sticking out on the sides or the heel. Then when I try no-show socks, they always slip right off inside my shoe (at the worst times, obvs). So what's a girl to do?? That's where cotton liners come in. They're even lighter than no-show socks and have a slightly sticky pad inside the sole to keep them from slipping off. These sound ideal to wear with slip-on sneakers and I will definitely be getting a pair (or four) for fall. Will you??

EXCLUSIVE: How @kicksbysammy Is Killin’ It On Instagram With Her Custom Sneakers Business
There's something blowing up on Instagram right now, and it's caught all of our attention... custom apparel. It seems like everyone and their mother has the creative and artistic talent to be making custom sneakers, hats, bags, jewelry, clothing - the list is endless - and they're all using Instagram as the place to show off and sell their creations. Lucky for us, we know one of the all-star designers and got an exclusive look into her world of custom apparel. Introducing... @kicksbysammy SF: How did you get started with your custom apparel business? KBS: The summer of 2013, before my freshman year of college, I was bored at home and found an old pair of shoes in my closet and wanted to try it out. I drew a design on them and posted them, and then all of my friends wanted a pair! Since then, I've been making kicks all the time. SF: How has Instagram help you reach customers? KBS: Instagram has definitely helped me reach a larger audience and spread my business. My followers see my designs, and then tag friends, who then can continue to tag other people. It's also a great platform that is easily accessible since basically everyone has an Instagram now. I also like using Instagram because it is a good way to compare and see what else is out there in the custom apparel market. SF: How long does it take you to make a pair of sneakers? KBS: A pair of shoes takes me about 8 hours, and the hats can take me a bit longer. SF: Who are your biggest clients? KBS: My audience is around 6-18-year-olds. The younger kids love having their favorite characters on a pair of custom shoes, and the older crowd likes to order kicks for camp, or when they start college! SF: What is your most favorite design? KBS: I started with just designing custom college shoes, but since then expanded to design shoes for camps, sports teams, young children's shoes, and any custom shoes. I love making a customized pair when someone will tell me their interests and hobbies, and then I can create a design based off of that. It's really fun to be creative that way! Here are some of Sammy's coolest kicks and designs. Check out @kicksbysammy on Instagram or kicksbysammy.com for your own pair! https://www.instagram.com/p/BFMCtr-r4Yk/?taken-by=kicksbysammy https://www.instagram.com/p/qNgYrPL4es/?taken-by=kicksbysammy https://www.instagram.com/p/BH-GocnD5jX/?taken-by=kicksbysammy https://www.instagram.com/p/1qdCFaL4Rc/?taken-by=kicksbysammy https://www.instagram.com/p/5CgkRHL4Q8/?taken-by=kicksbysammy Be sure to check out This $10 Mirror Nail Polish That The Internet Is Freaking Out Over and 7 Food Instagram Accounts You Need To Follow If You're In NYC [Photo: [email protected]]

This Is Exactly How To Wear Sneakers To Work
How To Wear Sneakers To Work We have a debate in our office between the young millennials, the older millennials and the Gen Y'ers. Is it appropriate to wear sneakers to the office? Sure, sneakers like Stan Smiths and Converse Chucks and even Vans are incredibly in-demand and in-style these days--polished celebs from Victoria Beckham to Jessica Alba, Kendall Jenner and Reese Witherspoon agree--but does that mean that those of us with *office jobs* can wear them to work? The answer is maybe. Sure, editors love them and it's appropriate in our field--but some jobs--like those in banking or ones that are client-facing--are just not appropriate for wearing sneakers to. Period. Here is a short list to give you a better sense of whether. 1. Wear new or clean sneakers only. If you're wearing sneakers to the office--they better be fresh. No ratty, dirty, scuffed or stained pairs. There shouldn't be dirt or mud visible on the soles or uppers of the shoes. Ask a friend or loved one to tell you, honestly, if your sneakers are too dirty before leaving the house (I'm serious! I always ask my husband for the truth on my outfits--sometimes it's hard to see these things in the mirror). If your sneakers do get dirty, here are the best tricks for keeping them clean: use a magic eraser to clean the soles (or Windex or toothpaste), wash canvas sneakers like Chucks in the washing machine, and use nail polish remover to spot clean them. https://www.instagram.com/p/BGG6bLXJDER/?taken-by=styledumonde&hl=en [Photo: Always Judging] 2. Wear black pants, skirts or dresses to dress them up. This seems obvious enough--but you'd be surprised how tempting it will be to wear blue jeans with the sneakers when you're getting dressed in the morning. Resist the urge! This will turn in to a weekend look REAL QUICK. Try to over-compensate from the ankles up--wear a blazer, wear a blouse or button-down shirt, wear black wool or silk pants instead of black jeans. Wear "serious" shades like black, white, gray. Opt for materials like silks and cashmere and suede. Wear high end brands or investment pieces, if possible. https://www.instagram.com/p/BGTj4WashV3/?taken-by=liketoknow.it 3. Wear your best bag. Put your best accessory forward--wear your nicest handbag or your flashiest statement necklace. Make it look like you really put some effort in and like the look is *carefully styled* and not just lazy. Draw the eye up from the sneakers to a more sophisticated or quality piece. Make your boss feel like you are trying to impress and look nice. Let their be no mistake that you planned this look around sneakers--and not that you just didn't feel like wearing heels that day. https://www.instagram.com/p/BGpbSLlIQT3/?tagged=streetstyle 4. Pick the "coolest" pair The styles that are most in right now are: Adidas Stan Smiths, Vans, Puma Lo Basics, Converse All Stars (aka Chucks) and Adidas Superstars (Victoria Beckham's fav!). 5. Have fun with it and show your personality. Again, you want to put together a look that feels well styled and not just lazy. Wear a bright dress or bright lipstick. Make a statement with your outfit and exaggerate or play up your personal style. Make the sneakers feel like part of a bold statement. https://www.instagram.com/p/BGPRPOtMhXM/?taken-by=liketoknow.it 6. Try white, black--or even nude. White sneakers are obviously cool--so are black ones (like slip-ons), and most recently gold or nude kicks have become stylish, too. Avoid bright colors like pink, red or blues as they will call attention to the fact that you are wearing sneakers. 2016's nude sneaker trend.
