When I used to commute via the metro to Bethesda or downtown to Foggy Bottom, I’d see all sorts of professionals on their way to work, in their suits and ties. . . And sneakers. I always thought they looked really silly on their way to work.
I would think to myself, “I’d never do that.”
And yet, about two years later, here I am, wearing sneakers on the way in and out. I’ve got a pair of work shoes that I leave in my office.
I’m not in a suit and tie (I don’t need to wear either), but I am sometimes in dress slacks. Which, admittedly, still looks silly–but is comfy. Should have done this years ago.
Plus, these sneakers are way cooler than the kicks those dweebs were wearing. For real.
