No New York City wardrobe is complete without several pairs of sneakers and walking shoes. Ballet flats have been a popular alternative to stilettos, but they don’t always offer enough structure and support – especially when you’re trekking around the city for hours on end. Fortunately, with the whole “athleisure” trend taking over, you don’t have to sacrifice fashion in favor of sporty comfort. Treat yourself to a pair of these stylish sneakers, which will keep your feet happy while walking the streets of NYC.
