For budget-conscious fashion customers, it’s all about versatility — styles that easily transition from one occasion to another. And with today’s more casual lifestyle, it’s easier than you think to have shoes that do double duty, that can take you from a morning workout to Sunday brunch.
Consider casual styles with an athletic influence — or, in other words, athleisure looks. While they may not have high performance capabilities, they still work for lighter aerobics classes.
Here, FN has done the shopping for you with an offering of athleisure styles.
FitFlop Artknit Lace-Up
You won’t want to take off this super lightweight sneaker that incorporates a contoured footbed with arch support. It’s even received the American Podiatric Medical Association’s Seal of Acceptance.
