Known for their comfort and ease, sneakers have transitioned from a commuter shoe into a bona fide fashion choice. Sometimes, they're the highlight of an outfit. Fortunately, in this $80 billion, heavily hyped industry, there are no shortage of options. Designers are constantly teaming up with household sneaker brands, meaning there's always a new pair and a new trend around the corner. This season, we saw classic lace-up styles at Marni and Tory Burch, sporty pairs at Collina Strada and Dolce & Gabbana, and slip-on pairs at Gabriela Hearst and Ferragamo. Shop some of our favorite picks, below.
