The New Sneakers Every NYC Girl Is Going to Wear

If there’s one trend that’s reigned supreme over the last few seasons, it’s athleisure—we’re talking sneakers, track pants, hoodies, and everything in between. Looking for new ways to test out the look? That’s where athleisure enthusiast Anaa Saber comes in. In her new column, the fashion girl behind @oursecondskin will offer up her best styling tricks for those of you looking to inject this cool trend into your everyday lives.

If there’s one thing we know and love about New York City’s It crowd, it’s that they love sneakers. More specifically, they love wearing sneakers during the summertime. Typically, you would expect most to make the switch over from sneakers to sandals, but sneakers are becoming even more ubiquitous in the hot weather, and they’ve officially become a seasonless staple.

Now, enough about why people are sticking with sneakers and more about which ones to get. If you haven’t already gotten your hands on the Nike SF-AF 1 Mid in Triple Ivory, I suggest you do so before they sell out. These shoes take inspiration from the military, as they include zips in the back and adjustable collar straps, living up to the name “urban utility.” From day to night, these sneakers will be your go-tos, helping you spice up an outfit. After all, there’s no need to live vicariously through New York City’s fashion crowd in envy when you can be a part of it.

These sneakers will be released August 11, so snatch them up while you can, and keep scrolling to see a couple of my favorite ways to style these fresh kicks.
