Athleisure made a firm comeback this spring. As we adjusted to a new normal, comfortable loungewear like matching sweatsuits, biker shorts, and even sweatpant shorts transformed from gym-appropriate pieces to daily stylish stalwarts.
Our footwear followed suit, too. When stay at home orders were first put into place in the spring, heels were one of the first things to gather dust. Running to the grocery store and stepping out for some exercise became the only grounds for strapping on any shoes at all, plainly calling for sneakers, walkable flats, and comfortable sandals.
Comfort-first footwear will continue to reign supreme so long as our work, social and home lives stay meshed. Whether you’re looking to reup on minimalist trainers, white kicks, or something more retro, designers from Loewe to Tory Burch have created sleek and retro designs sure to entice even the sneaker averse.
Here, kickstart your fall season with 16 sneakers to step out in.
