Run Star Hike High Top Sneaker
You’ve collected every color classic Converse high tops there is. Allow me to introduce you to its edgier sister. Featuring a rigged sole, this iteration of the Converse high top was made specifically for hiking trails.
Cariuma sneakers just make you feel good. Not only are they super light and flexible on your foot (no more “breaking in” periods), each shoe is crafted from self-regenerating bamboo and recycled plastics, so you know you’re doing your part to help the environment.
Call me childish but the easy, one-and-done slip-on sneaker is a lazy girl’s dream, and Rothy just about makes the dreamiest ones on the market. Plus, it’s made with machine-washable fabric for easy cleaning.
The Court Sneaker

An easygoing shoe that’s as soft and reliable as Ugg’s bestselling boots.
