20 Fresh Black Sneakers Because White Kicks Are So Last Year

These days, it seems like white sneakers get all the attention. But, just think: When it comes to the rest of our closet, it's the all-black pieces that get the real praise as timeless go-to's. (Because if you had to choose, that white blazer or those white jeans likely aren't what you'd want to live in for the rest of your life.) So why not top off your usual all-black outfit with a pair of matching kicks, rather than contrasting ones?
Anyone who owns as many black items as we do knows you can never have too many. To an outsider, they may look all the same, but, when it comes to all ten black turtlenecks we own, "They're all different! We swear!" The same goes for black sneakers. It just comes down to the details — a bit of embellishment, a unique texture, a high platform, or even contrast stitching. And no matter which pair you land on, you're guaranteed to get your money's worth. Because if there's anything you know you're going to wear over and over again, it's something that goes with everything in your closet.
