20 Fall Sneakers That Are Anything But Basic


New York Fashion Week is quickly approaching, and while we’re busy planning out our outfits for the occasion, there’s one thing we know: the only shoes we’ll be wearing all week long are sneakers. Long gone are the days of wearing heels while running from show to show—and we're grateful for it. We've been pretty much over it for awhile, and appreciate being able to feel our toes at the end of the day.

Thankfully, fall’s sneaker offerings are street style photog friendly. From all sorts of prints and patterns to kicks that have some serious sparkle potential, this season is all about making a serious statement. So whether you’re running from show to show like us, or simply just looking for a cute, comfy pair of shoes to kick back in, fall’s offerings have your back.

We rounded up 20 of our favorites that will make a sneakerhead out of even the most dedicated stiletto devotees. Click through the gallery below to check ‘em out.
