Student Trend Saturdays - Trendy Sneakers

Sneakers first emerged in the early 20th century, designed to provide optimal support for athletes. While we all now know that you don’t have to be athletically inclined to wear sneakers, it wasn’t until the early 1950s that sneakers were hitting the streets as everyday wear. 

As Week 7 says goodbye and Week 8 starts to come around, sneakers are beyond a practical option for a busy college lifestyle. UCLA students are constantly on the go from dealing with week 8 midterms (who thought that was a good idea!?), club meetings, readings, trying to have a social life and trying to get enough sleep. There are only so many hours in the week, and the weekdays are packed with places to go and people to meet. 

Check out some of the ways UCLA students manage to balance busy lives while looking stylish:
