Gone are the days of trudging to the gym in battered old sneakers or spending the weekend teetering around in heels to run errands. Athletic shoes have experienced a renaissance in the past two years that has catapulted them to wear-them-anywhere status. The newest kicks to create a fuss are these beauties created by Kate Spade Saturday and New Balance.
Designed with both Saturday's playful vibe and New Balance's athletic legacy in mind, these sneaks are the perfect mix of chic and comfortable. The sneakers—which are two of New Balance's most popular models, the WX711 and the WX811—have looks that range from bright but subtle yellow ($95) toedgy black with a striped sole ($95) and funky retro multi-colored stripes($95).
