Sandals are great but…have you tried sneakers that give your feet actual support (and prevent them from getting filthy)? Sneakers are taking the number one spot as our go-to shoe during the warmer months. With styles that come in gingham, cherry print, and a literal beach scene, the freshest kicks are more seasonally appropriate than flip flops. Shop our roundup of the best summer sneakers, here.
