Street Style Fashion With Sneakers

Sure, we love our stilettos and have a soft spot for a fancy pair of flats, but the one pair of shoes we continued to reach for over and over again this past year? Sneakers. And judging from our street style roundups, we weren’t alone — 2014 was definitely the year for a pair of comfy, stylish kicks. Between both rounds of Fashion Month, Summer, and a casual outing or two, we spotted our favorite industry insiders sporting everything from souped-up Nikes to a popular pair of Adidas’s Stan Smiths.

In fact, save for a few dressy events, we can’t think of an occasion that sneakers didn’t work for this year — and we’ve got the proof. Ahead, you’ll find a roundup of the greatest sneaker street style we’ve seen in the past 12 months. Every season, every temperature, every event, these babies — white, black, multicolored, simple, and statement-making — were a constant, and we loved it every step of the way. Here’s hoping we’ll see the same come 2015.
