25 Sleek Sneaker Styles For Summer

As much as we adore our crazy-high wedge heels and platforms, we'll be the first to admit that summertime is a good excuse to—occasionally—swap our heels for some cool sneakers. With a long vintage sun-dress or some sharp-tailored shorts, a good pair of clean, crisp kicks are just the thing to put a casual summer look in motion. While we like our sneakers much like we love our fashion—functional but still fun—we've rounded up a range of shapes and styles to cater to the girl-on-the-go in any town and any big city. Whether you go for the classic court shoe or a more glammed up high-top, we've got 25 pairs with plenty of style and sole to boot.
