Sneakers are meant to be uncomplicated. Like, wake up late and throw on any pair you have in your closet with any combination of clothes you can conceive and know that it will look good and, more importantly, intentional. That’s the uncomplicated beauty of the sneaker – it goes with most everything. A floral dress, cropped trousers, a bathing suit with a baseball cap and ankle hugging socks as you head to the beach… just me?
And while there are many reliable sneakers out there (I will never not own a pair of both Vans and Converse), there are also interesting and alternative kinds that, even when seemingly challenging, are equally as dependable in their wearability. Below, a round up of cool sneakers to carry you through summer and into fall.
