I understand. I particularly do not like wearing “tennies” with skirts, but it helps to be able to walk and like you New Balance has the easiest shoes to walk in that I have found. I do not know why, but it is a big difference–probably the sole. Also they are very comfortable. I have solid black walking shoes from NB.
Have you thought about getting pink and white shoe laces? there are also “bobbles” or “blings” for shoes that make them a little less stuffy, but I think double lacing with nice shoe laces would be more cool.
