Sneakers have long been a wardrobe staple for anyone who spends a lot of time on their feet or gets in regular workout routines. For those of Us who love fashion, particularly the athleisure trend, running sneakers are actually the perfect way to pull off a casual and chic street style look! Whether we are pairing Nike Roshes with an oversized sweater dress or dressing down a fancy top and faux leather leggings with Adidas, running sneakers are a great way to serve up a comfortable ensemble that looks creative yet effortless.
Like Us, celebrities also love a great pair of sneakers! As stunning as Rihanna may look in a pair of bedazzled Christian Louboutin pumps as she wore for the most recent Met Gala, she also frequently steps out wearing cool sneakers, usually from her Fenty Puma by Rihanna collection. Sneakers also seem to be the go-to shoe for supermodels for the off-duty look. Models like Hailey Baldwin, Gigi Hadid and Adriana Lima are regularly spotted incorporating a pair of cool lace-up kicks into their street style.
Sneakers have also gotten the high fashion treatment within the last few years from every corner of the retail industry. Every designer from Balenciaga to Michael Kors has released a slew of edgy statement sneakers that are perfect for casual wear.
Dressing down is simply the new way to dress up and our feet surely welcome the comfort! Lucky for Us, we just spotted one of our favorite sneakers on sale at Zappos and we are grabbing multiple pairs in different colors.
The Nike Tanjun sneaker was the most popular shoe of 2017 and was also the bestselling shoe in quarter two of 2018, according to market research. One look and a few steps in this cool design will certainly explain why.
The Nike Tanjun is all about simple construction and comfort. It boasts a stylish and flexible mesh upper portion that also provides breathability. The shoe is lightweight with a padded collar and tongue. These kicks also boast an easy lace-up closure meant to provide a secure fit. It also has a thick synthetic outsole.
This sneaker works as a great street style design because it blurs the lines between dressing for comfort and for style. A dainty round toe silhouette offers a softer, more flattering look that pairs well with everything from jeans to leggings to dresses, skirts and trench coats. It’s perfect for people who love sneakers but hate how heavy and clunky they can often be.
The Nike Tanjun is available in 11 cool color options on Zappos including the black/metallic gold shoe above. The sale along with the shade selection make it pretty difficult not to take home more than one pair. It’s pretty much a no-brainer.
One of our favorite color combinations is the Phantom/Crimson. We love that the classic crisp white sneaker motif gets a modern upgrade with a metallic rose gold check. These sneakers will look awesome with a crewneck sweater, boyfriend jeans and a chain strap cross-body bag. They would also complement a sweatshirt dress with leggings and a long trench coat.
Shoppers not into white sneakers may prefer the black version which still has the rose gold accent check. Step out wearing these kicks with skinny jeans, a black turtleneck, a longline cardigan and a trendy bucket bag.
Shoppers who bought and wore the Nike Tanjun were impressed for so many reasons but the top one is comfort. They loved the arch support and lightweight feel of these sneakers with one shopper sharing that they “feel like clouds” on her feet. One shopper shared that she works as a healthcare professional and these sneakers are her go-to for staying comfortable while she’s on her feet all day. Another reviewer revealed that they experience chronic foot pain and the Tanjun helps to reduce it significantly.
People wore these sneakers for different settings and occasions including street style, work and working out. Based on the reviews, the most popular colors purchased are the black and white, black and rose gold, black and gray and the pink and white.
Our athleisure looks are up for a major boost with this shoe sale and at 25 percent off, we are running to Zappos to snatch up these shoes before the deal goes away!
