ABC Wednesday -- "S" is for "Sequined Sneakers"

When I was a kid, only boys wore high-top sneakers, and those were pretty much the black, All-Star kind. I wore Red Ball Flyers or US Keds, and waited patiently for summer when I would get my new pair. Some were the classic lace-up ones, others were slip-ons, and some had a Mary Jane T-strap. But none of them were as fancy as these, worn by a student of mine, who kindly lent her feet for this photo.

Join ABC Wednesday!

Very sparkly! I think you should wear a pair!

I have never seen "high-tops" this high!

But I'm glad it is a student wearing them and I wouldn't want to believe that "sexy" Bibi would stroll about in such decidedly cute but unsexy shoes! ;-)

Sometimes, sneakers keep surprising me: when I was younger, I remember there were those sneakers that smelled like bubble gum or watermelon. Then, when my sister was young, shoes with LED lights were in. Now... Heelys and colorful high-top sneakers.

My high tops were never so high. They remind me of boots.

If not boots, at least these sneakers "were made for walkin'"
I think they make quite a statement!

I was a black all stars girl. These really are sparkly. I wonder if she can be persuaded to pose again for june theme day of feet.

Whoa!!! Those are fancy! Reminds me a bit of some of my scooter friends' footwear.

(These would have been perfect for our next theme day, btw.)

Cute! I have plaid ones, but I've never seen sequined ones before.
