Local Trends: Cute Chi-Commute

Cruising to work in relative comfort, wearing scrunched-down socks and too-white walking shoes is so 1987. Unfortunately, taking public transportation to work is a necessary urban evil. Chasing down a bus or leaping through closing El doors can take the sexy out of your stilettos like that. I’ll admit I was skeptical about “dressy” sneakers. But I’ve seen scads of Loop-bound young professionals looking classy-comfortable in flat sneaks, and even she-of-sometimes-questionable-taste Mischa Barton makes them look cute and fresh.


Keds, the line for which Mischa is spokesfoot, has a fall-friendly pair, the ($49.99), in espresso-colored cracked leather. shows fashion sneakers and flashy metallic-accented skimmers; the silvery ($88.95) combine the rubber-soled comfy of tennis shoes with a chic ballet flat style. The ($123.95) from retro-hip Puma is in line with the well-fitting style the Grey’s Anatomy docs sport with their scrubs (that speaks volumes about comfort and style).
