Ask Auburn: Staying fit yet stylish with sneakers

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Dear Auburn,
I endorse a healthy and active lifestyle. I try to inculcate physical activity through the course of my day. One thing I do quite regularly is walk to and back from college. It’s a good walk and takes about 30 minutes. To sustain this, I have to wear sneakers every single day! It makes me feel very unfashionable. Please solve my problem!

Hey Fitness Freak. No, there really is no need for you to be so freaked and tensed! You’re doing a good thing and I’m really impressed with your ideologies on fitness. As far as your problem is concerned, Auburn does have a solution for you.

Sneakers aren’t the only things you need to limit yourself to. Even within shoes, branch out a little and try Converse, Vans or sneaker wedges. Comfortable footwear needn’t be boring. Trade your fitness shoes with funky crocs, flat chappals, ballerinas or greek sandals instead.

But you know what? Sneakers are really in! They give your outfit a cool sporty vibe and are effortlessly comfortable. Everyone from Kylie Jenner to Emma Fox has been spotted sporting sneakers with jeans and shorts. Go ahead, stay fit and stylish!

Kriti Sharma is studying BCom (Hons) at Hansraj College. She has a myriad interests, writing being just one of them. A debater, a scholar, a fashionista, she is more of an outdoors person who likes to run 6-8 km a day, just to clear her head. She is an ‘Army Brat’, but an unlikely one. Reading a book by lantern light in a tent by the banks of river Indus after a hard day’s trek in the mountains is her idea of bliss. She wants to be an investment banker but admits that writing lets her escape into a world of ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’.
