As you may or (blissfully) may not be aware, we're a solid 28 days out from the start of New York Fashion Week. This may seem like all the time in the world, but between the flurry of awards season red carpets and the actual snow flurries set to freeze up Manhattan, this month is going to fly right on by. I'm trying to be more responsible in 2016 (remember to clean out your coffeemaker, Maura!), which means getting any and all pre-NYFW duties done, like, 24 hours before the first show starts. Ambitious.
On that note, I've been eyeing these Nike beauties for some time now. With the frantic nature of Fashion Month, I need a pair of sturdy, comfortable shoes that are still stylish enough to wear while sitting in close proximity to someone like Grace Coddington. Versatile and unfussy, you could wear them while feeling yourself at a fancy fashion party, or on a quick trip to the bodega when you're hungover on a Saturday morning. I, for one, would likely reserve them for the former occasion, but that's your call. Should I pull the trigger? (Yes, responsible me whispers in your ear.)
Nike Air Max 1 Essential suede, mesh and textured-leather sneakers, $125, available at Net-a-Porter.
