I love my plaid Converse sneakers:
I was almost hesitant to buy them a couple years ago because I wondered what the heck I'd wear them with. The answer turned out to be: more than I ever thought! They really do either go with or compliment almost any jeans-based outfit. And I've made a point in buying pieces of clothing and jewelry that feature colors found in my shoes. Today's outfit is an example of how the shoes really pull the outfit together:
The next time you spot a pair of shoes that have you thinking, "That's not practical - what would I wear them with?" - go for it! You may be surprised at their versatility. And if not, you'll have reason to go out and find something to wear with them.
