I went to support my good friend Emily run the Brooklyn half marathon early in the morning last Sunday. Rolling out of bed at 6am on a Sunday calls for throwing on a hat to cover my bed head, pants that feel like pajamas, layers to peel off when the sun hits and the temperature goes up 20 degrees, and of course, comfy sneakers.

These hybrid brogue sneakers were one of the last pairs I scored at the flagship Adidas store in SoHo a while back (sorry guys!) and Emily re-pinned them on Pinterest and said she got maybe 500 re-pins immediately after that. Since then, I’ve received multiple queries about where to get some cool kicks including the DEAR ANDI question and fashion advice below.

I’ve been looking for some fashionable sneakers that I can wear with a cute pair of pants. Any suggestions??

Dear Jennifer,

As you can see, I’m all about the comfy BUT cute sneakers this season. My sister, who’s also a stylist, and I are constantly on the hunt for the perfect fashionable sneaker and this season it seems to be everywhere—lucky for us. Sneakers are the new heels and my feet are thanking me after years of destroying them with heels. Check out some of my picks below and continue shopping in my stylist picks above. They’ll be great with pants, but also don’t be afraid to rock them with a casual dress this season too!
