8 Pairs of Flashy Sneakers to Make Any Outfit More Fun

The best part about sneakers being part of the street style lexicon is that you get to feel fashion-y and comfortable all at the same time — and that goes double if your sneakers are metallic or covered in sparkles. Turn to the flashy sneaker to add a commuter-friendly touch of whimsy to any outfit. There are plenty of good options that won’t set you back quite as much as customizable Gucci high-tops (though of course, those are cool too). Scroll down for eight below.
