Makeover Mommaâ„¢ Rating: C+
We know that brightly colored sneakers may be cool in younger circles (skaters, artists and Run DMC’s daughters come to mind), but we can’t seem to get our kicks from neon kicks. Even though perpetually beautiful celebrity mother Heidi Klum (shownÂ above) was recently spotted with electric sneakers, we thinkÂ very few can truly pull off this look while running their day-to-day motherly errands (can you picture Jennifer Garner sporting those shoes?)
It goes without saying that fashion is about self expression and personal taste, so we support those daring mommas who can wear crazy sneaks with pride. But for the rest of us? We would rather leave our inner Kanye or Lilly Allen behind, and spend our limited funding on classic shoes that work with any outfit (or color palette). When in doubt, we’d rather wear something slightly more feminine (like the Champion Indigo Sport Mary Janes), a comfortable pair of outfit-brightening moccasins (like Xhilaration brand Sherlyn moccasins), or for truly wild color, a pair ofÂ artistic comfortable flats (like the Printed Canvas Ballet Flats, in a variety of colors).
