Skimmer Sneakers

Skimmers are mostly slip-on sneakers. They are more like cute sneakers, only that you don't lace them up. Skimmers often have sneaker-like designs like the shoe lace detail at the toes. Many skimmers come in a number of designs and styles. A lot of them are designed like Converse (or Chuck Taylor) sneakers. They are more like the sneaker cousin of ballet flats. Whereas ballet flats are cute and girly and stylish, skimmers are purely casual.

The blog entry is entitled "Skimmer Sneakers" because they are primarily focused on the sneaker-like slip-ons. There are other kinds of skimmers, but the ones I'll be focusing on here are the sneaker-like skimmers.

--- Skimmers in Pictures ---
Here is a picture to set the mood:

As you can see (like with the Converse skimmers above), these skimmers have the same style of your favorite Converses (assuming you're a Converse fan), only that these are slip-ons. They do for a casual look the equivalent of what ballet flats do to compliment a look. The only difference between most skimmers and ballet flats is that skimmers are more casual. It's unlikely you'll see skimmers worn around an office or someplace. The call is for casual cute.

Skimmers are available for various females ranging from girls to adult women. Here are some more skimmer pictures:

wedge sneaker skimmers

These skimmer sneakers are brown with many light pink hearts around them. Also, note that these skimmers have a wedge base. American Eagle (as in the Payless brand) has made a lot of wedge skimmers that I thought were cute. These are exclusively girly as they are skimmers with a heel. This is for the girl who wants to elevate her style while looking cute doing it.

--- What to Wear Skimmers With? ---
Skimmers are quite casual, so it's probably not a good idea to wear these with anything dressy or [especially not anything] formal. Here's a simple fix- T-shirt, jeans, skimmers. I've once seen some girls wear skimmers as their shoes for their school uniform. You can even wear a cute casual skirt or dress to go with skimmers. If you're used to skinny jeans with Converse-type sneakers, you could replace the Converse high-tops or low-tops with a pair of skimmer sneakers. You may even go with some cropped pants or jeans to go with skimmers. Your options are pretty open with skimmers. I'd just stay away from any fancy or dressy looks. Some skimmers may be exceptions to the rule, but not ALL of them.

You've seen some skimmers. As a way of thanking you for reading this blog entry, I must allow you a chance to purchase any skimmer sneakers if you like them. So it's time to show you some skimmers on Amazon!
