My Personal Trainers

Call them what you will...trainers, sneakers, tennies, running shoes...I love them! And I'm especially a fan of good old Converse All Stars. (You just can't beat a great pair of Chuck Taylors!) So, when I saw these sneakers on Sofia's blog, I immediately jumped on Pyper with a torrent of ZOMG's and Squeee's. I knew right away that I had to have a pair...and they are every bit as fabulous as I had hoped.


To showcase the shoes, I decided to put together a totally casual and comfortable look, perfect for lounging at the house and trying to get a little work done.

Keep reading after the jump...
I headed out to DeLa* where I picked up this great tank and scarf combo. I love shorts, so I was having trouble deciding between the cute and baggy black ones or the totally comfy cargo shorts. Which do you prefer?

Let's talk about the shoes. These are from Urban Bomb Unit and are the PornStar Xtra Hi-Tops and they are Unisex. Every piece of the shoe is modifiable via a scripted menu. You can modify the size, wear them straight up or folded down, change any of the textures individually, change the laces, the lace rings...everything! I had so much fun mixing and matching textures and in then end, for this look, I settled on a very tame Falu Red and Burberry Plaid.

The attention to detail on these shoes is fantastic. Check out the scuff marks on the toe of the shoe...even a little handwritten "I heart my shoes" written in ballpoint pen. I mean, who didn't write on their shoes in high school?!?


So, if you need to give your tootsies a break, slip your feet into these adorable shoes...and then have fun playing around with the options to make them uniquely yours.

Oh, and while putting this look together, I couldn't help but stop in AnaLu and pick up some new poses...yeah, like all of them (gasp!). Ana Lutetia makes some great poses and even offers a free-to-use photo studio at her main store location. And if you really want to keep up with all of the new releases, be sure to check her blog...this girl is quick! quick! quick! when it comes to reviewing all of the latest and greatest from SL fashion designers.
