While a sneaker may not be shoe choice for the every day fashionista, a sneaker can in fact add flair to an outfit outside your old ratty pair of gym shoes you swore you’d get rid of. A pair of shoes speaks to who a person is and a functional and fashionable pair of sneakers speaks volumes. Whether you’re active and on-the-go or just looking to show a little tom-boy side, a sensible pair of sneaks is the perfect way to stay relaxed and comfortable without sacrificing support.
Lauren Conrad and Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star High Top
There may be reruns of The Hills on MTV, but reality-star-turned-fashion-mogul Lauren Conrad is far from a repeat. Her slouchy style and laid-back kicks are a perfect way to walk around a summer music festival, as she does here at the notoriously sartorial shindig Coachella. With the 4th of July coming up next sunrise, a patriotic shoe may seem a bit trite, but done in a way that instead of highlighting the red, white and blue, compliment it. Converse is a timeless Americana brand that has been making Chuck Taylors for as long as anyone can remember and these Chuck Taylor All-Star High Tops are a classic shape done over in a modern and bold print.
Sienna Miller and Superga 2750 Sneaker
Style icon and actress Sienna Miller looks sporty and comfortable as she faces the crowd to sign autographs outside the Theatre Royal Haymarket. Her oversized jumper and acid wash jeans look simple yet chic in a rocker-chick way. A tousled top knot and your go-to sweater may be your next biggest fashion move, paired with a sporty yet retro sneaker. The Superga brand has been pumping out classically shaped sneakers for years and the 2750 Sneaker is the best combination of vintage and athletic style out there.
Emily Blunt and Ash Bowie Wedge Sneaker
Emily Blunt may be in monochromatic head-to-toe black as she traipses through LAX to catch a flight, but she looks downright chic. The sneaker-wedge has been a huge trend this season and in all black with leather accents, these kicks are killer. While previously, a wedge was seen as strictly for dressier shoes, adding a hidden wedge makes these high-tops high fashion. Ash has been at the forefront of the sneaker-wedge craze. The Bowie Wedge Sneaker has a classic basketball high-top look but with high fashion appeal with geometric lines and done in black suede on top of black canvas.
