I am not asking about wearing sneakers when doing chores on the weekend. But to go out to casual events such as drinks with friends or brunch, etc. And just to be clear I am not talking about a pair of Nike Air or runners. Or does there come a time when you just have to give up sneakers for anything other than playing sports.
I read a post about the rise of women in society. How the jobs available in modern economies favour a female skill set. I think there is truth to this. The role of men is still important but not as central as it once was.
In a more superficial way. I was out the other night thinking about the above. I was struck by how incredibly well put together and sophisticated the women looked and how the men looked like overgrown kids wearing sneakers. Then I looked down and saw my sneakers.
I'll wear my chuck taylor sty converse shoes out some. I don't think there is anything wrong with a cool pear of sneakers when your in your 30's. A lot of times I will wear them if I have on something like a blazer or something to tone it down a bit.
