Vanessa Hudgens has been getting sportier lately. No, I don’t mean she’s getting into sports, because she already works out on a regular basis. I’m talking about the actress’ sartorial choices of late. It looks a little different these days. While not totally gone, she has definitely toned down her bohemian way of dressing, and is now often seen wearing athletic inspired outfits.
Honestly, I’m beginning to think she’s dressing this way all because of a fresh pair of shoes — a set of sneakers from Adidas with extremely thick platforms. The kicks, crafted in white leather, feature polka dots, a lace-up design, and bulky rounded toes. They actually remind me a lot of creepers, only, sportier. Check out Vanessa’s sneakers below, then tell if you can appreciate them:

What do you think? You like?
Here’s a closer look at the pair. The platforms on these kicks are about 5 centimeters or 2 inches thick. I don’t know if they’re heavy, but considering they’re made of rubber, I would definitely think so. Aside from the heavy platforms, I guess the other detail that makes these shoes unique is the polka dot pattern.
