Sneakers are no longer for running errands or running on the treadmill. Today comfort, meets style and sophistication. Brand labels have been investing in the sneaker craze making this type of shoe more fashion forward and appropriate to wear in many different occasions. I personally fancy a great sneaker, and seem to get more compliments on them, opposed to my dressier shoes. Here I give you my top five sneakers that are worth the investment, which will leave your feet in style and overall comfort.

A cross-bread between a hiking boot and sneaker, Nike presents to you the Air Approach. This shoe is available in black suede and is perfect for pairing with some dark washed denim or a great fitting pair of slim cut khakis. Great for day trips around town to a night on the town, this sneaker is easily transitional, making it stylish, effortless, and overall timeless.

Want something with a bit more pop, color, and pizzazz? Comme des Garcons PLAY has launched it’s third collaborative collection with Converse. Featuring the iconic heart-eyes logo that is randomly placed, each sneaker is unique and distinctive from one another. If high-tops are not your cup of coffee, Converse also has this shoe available in a low top form. This shoe and print with classic colors are easily parable with just about any wardrobe and are easily a great conversation starter. This sneaker is not for the faint of heart.

#4 Superga / superga.co.uk
Looking for that pair of classic white summer sneakers? Let me introduce to you Superga, “People’s Shoes of Italy”. These classic tennis shoes are great, and durable for running around town. The canvas material makes these shoes easy to clean and wash, also if you want to unleash your creative side, take a pen and draw a great design onto them, making it one of a kind! Not really into a classic white sneaker, but looking for an all around classic styled shoe? Well good thing these shoes come in over 30 different colors! So you can choose the color that suits you best! I, myself prefer the classic white, or navy toned Supergas
#5 Golfito Louboutins / christianlouboutin.com
Louboutin’s are no longer just for sky-high heels, this high-end brand is now expanding into men’s shoe wear, including some great sneakers. If you are looking to dress up your shoe-drobe, then these Golfito Louboutins are just for you. Taking a spin on a classic look, these patent glossy leather tennis shoes can be worn dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. All in all they are one great pair of slick, look at me shoes!
With shoes being made for practicality reasons, to now stylish reasons, why not fuse the two together. Be comfortable yet sleek and stylish all at the same time. Now you can walk the streets with your fashion forward feet.
