Sneakers Articles

Sneakers are any type of soft-material shoe that athletes wear off the field to add style and personality to their appearance. Leading performance gear companies that also produce lifestyle sneakers include Nike, Jordan Brand, adidas, Converse, Puma, Vans, DC, Etnies and Osiris Skate Shoes. Pure lifestyle sneakers—e.g., from Sketchers, Puma Lifestyle and Steve Madden—confer no particular athletic benefits but work well with jeans or khakis for a casual (but not sloppy) look. Get the latest details on today's top lifestyle sneakers, casual footwear and other shoe collections from superstar athletes and leading designers from all the major shoe brands.
