While the term ‘sneakers’ implies a shoe that any and all can buy and wear, many sneaker brands have turned into designer companies, and many pre-established designers have decided to try and corner the sneaker market as well. Just look for the brand name, and if you know it, it’s a designer sneaker! 

Platform Sneakers

You’ll see kids wearing them most often! 

Slip-on Sneakers

The Slip-on sneaker has its own place in America’s cultural heart. It is a type of sneaker that comes without shoelaces, meaning they’re great for kids and anyone who troubles to bend down and tie a bow. Easy to slip on, as the name suggests, and with plenty of innovative designs that ensure they remain a popular shoe choice, these sneakers are totally casual and great for all situations.
