Busy weeks and long lists of to-dos leave many of us struggling to make it to the gym. But just because we don’t tackle the elliptical every day doesn’t mean we don’t maintain active lifestyles. Sometimes, exercise is what happens in the margins of our lives, when we’re racing from one appointment to the next.

To suit our hectic schedules, our wardrobes need attire with the comfort of gym wear, but the versatility of street wear. We want outfits that look good and feel good, so style and ease coexist without sacrifice in either direction.

We need simple, sturdy, multipurpose pieces that allow us the freedom to go anywhere and do anything at a moment's notice. We crave clothes and shoes that empower us, instead of limiting us -- strong essentials that enable us to go for it, whatever it is, without hesitation.

So, what to wear? Let’s focus on the foundation: a go-to shoe.

Zappos has endless options to choose from, but these strappy Stephane sandals from Born seem ideal for almost any activity. They're modern and classic at once (with simple lines and materials that are easy to style), and the fitted ankle straps and soft soles make them strong contenders for bike rides, long walks and the seemingly endless daily hustle.

The Born brand believes that fashion and comfort can go hand-in-hand; this is a philosophy we can get behind (and wish was employed more often). Demanding lives require considered purchases and strong staples -- the kind we know won't hurt our feet within a mere few hours, but can still pack a special punch when paired with almost any outfit!

p.s. Once you have the shoes sorted, how about refreshing your go-to hair routine with one of these three spring hairstyles?
