Fans of the sneaker trend, rejoice! Designers have been updating the comfortable classics so much recently that it's easy to see why sneakers have all but taken over our shoe racks. In luxe finishes, they look just like dress shoes. Satin, velvet, and leather pairs make them feel anything but athletic, and footwear designers and fashion people alike are taking note.
