You probably wouldn't want to run or do any jumping jacks while wearing a pair of Valentino or Givenchy sneakers, but there's no denying that this season, comfort is in. While Karl Lagerfeld's Haute Couture spin on sneakers for Chanel, which took thirty hours each to make, are only available for purchase with a full couture look, you can get a pair of the below designer kicks with a simple click or credit card swipe right now. Better yet, with the news that Mary Katrantzou will be teaming with Adidas for a collection launching in November, this trend won't be going anywhere anytime soon.
Here's a look at some of the best designer sneakers currently up for grabs.
Rick Owens DRKSHDW
Arguably the most wearable thing Owens has ever designed.
These sneakers are two-for-one - wear them with the plaques for a playful look or without for something more preppy.
Puma by Hussein Chalayan
Low Tops, $102
Don't let the fact these are made by Puma and look functional fool you... these are just as fashion-focused and non-performance driven as most of the other designer sneakers.
How many people can say they own a pair of leather, lace and suede sneakers?
Marc by Marc Jacobs
Jacobs helped usher in the designer sneaker trend when he sent models wearing a gold version of these very same trainers down his Spring/Summer 2014 runway.
Maison Martin Margiela
What's a little schmutz when your white sneakers are already dripping in paint...
See by Chloé
Clean and casual, this is the perfect spring comfort shoe.
They're more New Balance than Haute Couture, but the color palette will work well year-round.
