I’ve said it before and i’ll say it again, We are a sneaker obsessed little family. I think it’s mostly my husband’s influence, but we have all grown to really love the whole Sneaker Culture and all the comfort and style a great pair of tekkies can bring. I’m the kind of girl who will wear sneakers with just about any outfit, even dresses for a nice edgy but feminine look. I’m casual like that. Being a mom means that they offer me hours of comfort as I’m constantly on the run – in and out of the car and often running from place to place. And they were all I wore during my last two pregnancies too!



And so, what do you get when two people who adore shoes have babies together? Well you make sneaker obsessed little humans who adopt your same sense of style! Especially the boys and their dad. They see him wearing jeans with a black tee, they want to wear jeans and a black tee. They see him rocking new converse, they want new converse! And that’s how the story goes!

So I gave them free reign on the Spree Index website and let them choose whichever pair of shoes they wanted. After a fair amount of deliberation they both selected a pair of Converse All Stars – obvs to look like mom and dad! Initially they chose the old school black high tops but I encouraged them to go for something a little more fun! They are only 4 and 6 after all.

So these are what they chose!!


⇑ Brody chose these retro Chuck Taylor All Stars in Blue. They are so fun with lots of colour inside the ankle. They are just perfect for his quirky personality.

⇑ And there you have it folks… our Converse family.

Oh yes and just to add to the obsession ……. we couldn’t leave little Miss Hunter out….. Hubs bought these for her on his last trip to the States! ♥
