Once reserved for the fitness realm, sneakers are now viable for everyday—even for work. Whether you’re busy chauffeuring your kids around or going for dinner with girlfriends, these runners will take you there in style. Rubber soles combined with foot-hugging support make these comfortable kicks footwear we can fully endorse.
Take a note from street style and inject coolness into your ensemble by slipping on a pair of metallic sneakers. Team your high-shine kicks with something casual, like distressed denim or a cozy striped turtleneck. Add some polish to the shoe with an accordion pleated–skirt and white button-down—the styling possibilities are endless!

Skip the laces and try a pair of slip-on sneakers for a streamlined look. These sleek flats look great in a myriad of materials, but we like them best in either black leather or a vibrant solid suede.

Confused by the hundreds of sneaker options available? When in doubt, go for a classic pair of Chuck Taylors. Converse re-issues hundreds of styles every season, but we suggest going the classic route in an understated neutral-hue leather, instead of traditional canvas. The luxe material gives the standby sneaker a little more prestige.

Top of your game
If you’re already sold on the sporty shoe trend, step up your game with a pair of high-top sneakers. Take advantage of the larger canvas and rock a print. We love this black-and-white floral pattern—it’s girly without being precious.
