We believe that sneakers are a completely viable everyday shoe — even for work. But, let’s not sugarcoat things. We know that making your athletic shoes feel office-appropriate versus ready-to-hit-the-gym is often easier said than done. And, it may not fly at all. Fret not: With the right silhouette, material, and special detailing, you, too, will be preaching the sneakers-for-all gospel. Even if none of these 29 pairs work for your particular place of employment, there's no reason these beauties can't amp up your morning commute. After all, subway street style is a thing, and we're all for it.
