6 New Ways To Wear Sneakers This SeasonWords and Photos:Makeda Sandford, 24
ICYMI, it’s fashion month, and that means on-point fits are out to play in major cities around the globe.Looking to get inspired for fall (like add-to-cart inspired), I hit the streets of New York City to link up with six girls whose style is, well, #goals.They showed up in black and white Converse sneakers that played up their personal style: From psychedelic prints and ready-for-whatever boots, to platforms with just the right lift.So, I had to ask. Not just, “Where did you get that?” but also the story behind their style vibe, what they heart most about this new collection, and (pause for suspense) much, much more.

MEET THE TRENDSETTERS
My favorite part of this look is… The smile on the toe of my Jack Purcells.I’m a bonafide sneaker girl… Because I’m always on the move. Like any true New Yorker, I walk a lot and love comfort in my step.Fashion week has taught me… That there are absolutely no rules when it comes to dressing.

My friends would say my style is… Like a globally renowned rock and roll singer and a fashion icon had a child out of wedlock.This outfit formula is best described as… Crazy clothes from my closet + platform boots I can’t live without = very me.My favorite NYC memory in sneakers is… You’re lookin’ at it.

The one word I’d use to describe my style is…Androgynous.I’m feeling these sneakers because…They’re an immediate attention grabber with the zig zag pattern and printed laces.My favorite thing about fashion week is…The inspiration I get from the wildly expressive outfits that roam the streets.

I dress to… Stand out and reflect whatever emotion I’m feeling internally.These Chucks are… Eclectic and bold.I wear sneakers 24/7 because… When you’re running to a subway station one second and getting down at a random brownstone the next, comfort is key.
