These sneakers are timeless and can be worn year-round; it doesn’t get much better than that. You don’t need flashy footwear to make a statement, here are few examples that go with any wardrobe. The Lacoste graduate vulc sneakers and the Converse Jack Purcell sneakers are a prime example of what Instagramers consider effortless.

2. The slip-on shoe

Not only are these shoes easy to put on, but they are also easy to weave into your wardrobe. To get more wear out of these shoes, stick to basic colors like the Polo Ralph Lauren Trentham slip-on sneakers.

Shying away from the typical black dress shoe gives you the opportunity to experiment with out of the box styles like the Ronda Spectator shoe or the Duke wingtip shoe from Nordstroms. Instagramers suggest wearing cropped suit pants or having them cuffed to show of these unique styles.

4. Sneakers that make an impact

With more and more work environments allowing freedom when it comes to dress code in the workplace, sneakers have now become an acceptable option. Sneakers are great way to show off your personality and make an impact at the same time. The Nike free trainer 5.0 V6 or the Serrano sneaker by Onitsuka Tiger are not only comfortable but the perfect pop of color, too.

5. Bold pattern

If you are looking to make a statement, a bold pattern is the way to go. You can find these patterns on sneakers, slip-ons and loafers. If a pop of color is not your cup of tea you can opt for a pattern in neutral colors. To give you a good idea of this style, consider the Men’s Star Wars canvas sneakers from Target. A fun pattern in a neutral color can also be seen on the Gucci common high top sneakers from Nordstrom. Not everyone can pull off this daring look, but trying something new if fun too!
