The sneaker, the shoe of the season, reigns supreme from runway to reality. Originally spotted on the savviest of street style stars, the easy-to-replicate trend has officially reached the masses. Adoption simply requires a preference for comfy footwear (duh) and a knack for finding tolerable prices amid hundreds of options.
Minimalist styles pair easily with almost anything in your wardrobe, while statement-making sneakers can be worn with relaxed and simple outfit combinations. The bolder versions come in rich fabrics and flashy colors with vintage vibes and sporty styling, far from the look of the basic tennies you used to wear to the gym. Lowtop, hightop, slip-on, back-zip — we love them all! But here are seven of our favorites right now.
