As summer winds down, we’re moving away from our staple sandals and transitioned into cool, comfortable sneakers on the daily. And just as we picked up on the footwear trend, it seems the fashion world keeps offering flattering, modern styles we can’t get enough of. Today, we’ve created a list of our current favorites, from athletic to casual to designer, great for moving from the sweltering summer days to crisp fall nights with ease. Here are 10 of the sneakers you’ll want to live in.
If you, like us, are almost always on the hunt for a high-quality sneaker that can last through plenty of gym visits and outdoor runs, you’re in luck! We did our research and checked in with the avid runners on the StyleBlueprint team to round up three options that will keep you supported (and stylish) while getting your sweat on.

COOL & CASUAL
A cool sneaker has taken over as our go-to for casual summer wear. We love to pair a sneaker with a pair of shorts, high waisted jeans, white denim or even a flowing midi skirt or dress to achieve those coveted cool-girl vibes. All five of these styles can be worn a number of ways and reflect the trends of the season, both present and upcoming.
These Frye warm brown sneakers ($197.95) are probably the coolest way to rock the snakeskin trend. We love the unique shade of these, although they are available in a slew of different options. Speaking of animal print, these leopard print slip-ons ($59.95) are a great way to incorporate the trend into your wardrobe. Plus, they also nod to the platform sneaker trend that’s becoming increasingly more popular. These rose gold sneakers ($120) are a fantastic choice for those looking to glam up their sneaker collection, while these slip-on black sneakers ($250) are the ultimate comfortable go-to. Finally these white Madewell sneakers ($88) will quickly become your everyday favorite.
A designer sneaker may seem ridiculous, but if you’re looking to elevate this casual staple with something swoon-worthy, there are plenty of options on the market. Here, we’ve chosen two of our favorite designer buys just right for those looking for a luxe find.
These Gucci sneakers are a favorite of designer-donning fashionistas. We love the iconic green and red stripes and cute little bee detail. Just be ready to spend $650 on these beauties. If you’re a sneaker lover, or even if not, we’re sure you’ve seen these Golden Goose sneakers out and about. They’re having a major moment right now thanks to the flattering, cool cut and effortlessly distressed detailing. The only catch is that they’re a whopping $495. Of course, these aren’t quick decision, but if you’re looking to indulge in an item the fashion world is buzzing about, this is the luxe sneaker for you.
