If there’s a shoe trend I noticed over the last couple of months, it’s sporty footwear with a feminine twist. Whether it be floral embroideries à la Gucci, shiny pearls à la Miu Miu, girly bows à la Puma or in this case a delicate blush pink velvet upper combined with wide satin ribbon laces, “sporty meets elegance” is one of Spring’s biggest trends! Luckily, you don’t need to spend a fortune on a pair of designer sneakers to indulge in this trend as there are various sneaker alternatives at almost any price point. And while the Steve Madden velvet sneakers aren’t terribly expensive to begin with (retail price is $79.95), we managed to find a just as gorgeous and super spot-on sneaker for under $30! Total steal alert!
