When we were in London last month, I saw SO MANY PEOPLE wearing what I term “fashion sneakers,” and what I recently saw one of you call “lifestyle sneakers.” I.e, tennis shoes that aren’t actively meant for athletic exertion and more meant to be cute and practical while you run around town. (I know that certain factions of fashion are trying to make ACTUAL sneakers chic again and I cannot get on that bridge. I’m staying on this side of the river as far as that one goes.) Anyway, everyone looked so chic with their lower profile snazzy sneaks on with their little dresses and now it is my goal to increase the fashion sneaker portion of my wardrobe. I just bought these from J.Crew and they are SO SO SO CUTE but they run big, and the smallest size they had was too big for me. (Their largest size is a J.Crew 6, but it’s a 37; I wear a 36.) I bought another version in a smaller size from Amazon, so we’ll see what happens. I also, of course, own these M.Gemi slip-ons, and I LOVE them — they’re like leather Vans.

But there are MYRIAD options out there:

And, as ever, I definitely want to hear your Fashion Sneaks picks!

As ever: Like most websites, GFY uses affiliate links where available, which means we get a tiny bonus if you get yourself something new. I can assure you that all trainers were personally chosen by me while I sat around drinking water and watching Claws.
