Put Your Best Foot Forward with Fun, Colorful Sneakers That Really Pop

You will totally own the sidewalk. 

By Patricia Cunningham

Basic white sneakers are a wardrobe staple, and yet even though they’ve hit critical mass with the fashion cognoscenti and look good with just about anything, it’s time to acknowledge they have a glaring critical flaw: Their lifespan is woefully brief. They get dingy so quickly that if you aren’t keeping them up with a bristle brush and some shoe tonic, you’re trading them in for a new pair or retiring them for good.

But that’s no reason to give up on a kicked back, comfy look. A slew of styles are cropping up that take plain sneakers to the next level. Adorned with tassels, pom poms, prints, and sequins, or stiched with embroidery, they’re adorable as they are functional. And they’re a little more forgiving when it comes to showing wear and tear.

Scroll below to shop some of our fave styles that will put the spring back in your step.
