Fashion
If you think athletic shoes are just for going to and from the gym, it’s time you think again. Lately, just about everyone from working professionals to fashionable "It girls" have been kicking off their impossibly high heels and slipping into sporty sneakers.

These ultra-comfy faves are not only hip but they’re surprisingly versatile--you can wear them with trousers, skirts and even patterned dresses. It just takes a little bit of style know-how to nail your head-to-toe look. Need some guidance? Try wearing bright multi-color sneakers with dark cropped skinny jeans and a similar color sweater or top for a minimalist moment that’s decidedly chic. For something a bit more whimsical, opt for a monochromatic pair of athletic shoes with a feminine floral dress or circle skirt.

If you want to pick up affordable athletic shoes, start your search by looking at trusted brands like New Balance and Nike, and if you want to invest in stylish sneakers that are ready to make a sartorial statement, definitely see what MM6 Maison Martin Margiela has to offer. Either way you go, you’ll find a street style-approved pair that will make your feet happy.
