Sneakers are known to be the most casual and friendly kind of shoes available out there. If you go out on the streets and take a look around, the majority of shoes you’ll see will be sneakers. Everyone loves sneakers in all forms and styles as they are comfortable, fashionable, and in most cases, affordable as well. It is said that you can ‘sneak up’ on someone wearing sneakers while you cannot do so with leather shoes and hence the name ‘sneakers’ entered our lexicon. Not that we want you to sneak up on anyone though, but we seriously want you to look trendier and more fashion-forward. And so on that note, here are ten different types of sneakers you really need to have in your wardrobe

In fact, the double duty these shoes pull off (useful on the court AND off the court) is precisely why you shouldn’t think twice before owning a pair.
7. These Velcro Sneakers
Here’s an option for those who just can’t be bothered with shoelaces – although they can be a bit tricky to pull off, velcro sneakers can help accentuate your casual ensemble with just the right amount of style and fashion.

As such, these blue sneakers from Converse will complement the denim that you’re wearing in the best possible way, while the incredibly low price also makes them a steal of a deal.

So add these black/ white printed sneakers to your cart, and you’ll be the proud owner of a high-fashion accessory that will always set your footwear game apart from the rest.

However, they have become a huge fashion trend these days and for all the right reasons – they are uber cool, simple, comfortable, and incredibly modish. So opt for these sneakers, and your fashion game will be all the better for it.
