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. Iâ€™ll admit I was skeptical about â€œdressyâ€ sneakers.
