We often find ourselves scrambling to find the perfect tropical footwear to suit our adventures. Sandals aren't always ideal because we are on and off motorbikes while doing photo shoots
, and they simply cannot be trusted to keep our toes safe and injury free. Thankfully, we were recently gifted a whole whack of incredible little runners from Vegans Wear
, an ethically made shoe company that has created iconic Vegan lace up sneakers that are to die for. We lived in them during our last round of photo shoots in the Dominican Republic because they look SO cute with everything we own, and come in tons of adorable colours.
Seen here - me, trying to test if the light is adequate for shooting, and trying not to drown in my lion's mane of hair getting whipped around. As you can see, these adorable runners come in olive green (my fav colour because it's the same as my eyes!) and look fabulous with this ruffly one piece wonder. Don't mind my perpetually bruised and beat up limbs, surfer babes are known for being covered in scrapes and bruises! These runners seriously saved the day because this spot was rocky and the sand was HOT.
Well it took five years of living in the Caribbean, but Monica is officially tanned. Best way to show off killer tanned legs? Well white runners of course. White runners are SO hot right now, and we adore how they look with cute little dresses. But dresses get twisted on motos and flip up in the wind, so cute jean shorts are the everyday go-to. So much so, that Moni's stack of jean shorts is teetering at about 10 high. I guess there's worse habits to have, right?
Young Venezuelan super cutie Monica has been modelling for us for years now. She is full of life and super positive, so we decked her out in some cute runners for this shoot to protect her feet from the red ants that were wreckin' havoc on our photoshoot. Seriously, where do they even all come from? I guess its just part of hanging out in the tropics. Bugs love it too. Stay tuned for the second edition of About the Models
to meet Monica and a few more!
