    I'm in my 40s and was thinking of getting them again; I wore them in jr. high and high school. Why not? Better for your feet than heels.

    Thanks everyone. Yup sneakers are definitely better for our feet than heels.
    Which ones do you like better the ones with green in the back or navy?

    I like them but my 18 year old son has some and I think he'd be horrified if I started wearing them!
    The colours aren't showing up for me but I think I'd go for blue, assuming they're white with blue trim.

    Green is the original color so that's what I'd go with. No need to recreate this classic.


    Eta - those sneakers might have been the first article of clothing I saved up for & bought myself. I remember going to Kings Plaza w my gf Jennifer & buying them at...what was that athletic store called? Herman's? On the 2nd floor. Cash on the counter. I was 12. Good times.

    Nope - you're not too old! I'm 71 and I'd wear them. I wear Rag and Bone low sneakers all the time - I have a pair in black and one in white.

    It's the decrepit old ladies trudging along in unlaced decrepit sneakers that look eeek! (Not wanting to be mean.)

    Just wear them with casual clothes like jeans.

    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    No one is too old to wear anything. So, no, you aren't too old to wear those. : )

    No, especially sneakers. I have to wear them more often now because of all the walking I do. I miss heels though.

    No way are you too old!!! I'm 52 and I would wear them. In fact, i say "out with rules regarding fashion and age!" I wear some shirts from the juniors section (nothing too outrageous though) and many older women have long hair and I think that's great ! As for sneakers, I'm looking for a pair of red Converse and I don't think I'm too old for them! Go for it!!!

    Best combo so far:

    Sorry for hijacking but...


    surely I have to be too old for these, right?

    Not at all! When I'm not wearing my Asics, I wear these :D I've actually had folks compliment me on them. :lol:

    Also, I have a small foot [size 4.5 in kids] and they are also cheaper; so, it's a win/win! :occasion9:
