little black sneaker

School Life Sneak EF Sneak Gap SneakBest (top): Every day black sneakers with a fashion flare and a mission statement. Gotta love these wingtip style sneakers from the School of Life complete with their signature yellow tab detailing. And it wouldn’t be the School of Life if you didn’t get a little philosophy with your shoes — printed on the outside edge:  Head in the Stars, Feet on the Ground. Made by British shoemaker Oliver Sweeney in Italy. Available by mail order, in European sizing. Approx. US  $280

Better (middle): If lace up is more your style, these chunky sneakers are a perfect fit. Leather with mesh inserts to keep your feetsies cool. Made with enough support to keep you walking on a cloud all day. A surprising entry from Eileen Fisher  $175.

Bargain (bottom): Want all the style at a bargain price? GAP does these simple shiny slip-ons (also available in a lace up version) in both black and oxblood (oooh!). Just enough quality to get you through the season in style. And just $50 to boot.
