What We're Snagging Now: Fashion's Sneaker Obsession

When your day revolves around online shopping — rifling through the virtual racks, checking out the latest collections, styling the latest trends — it's impossible not to actually shop when your job depends on knowing what's what in fashion. Naturally talk at Fab quickly turns to what everyone's been shopping (especially when the purchaser shows up to work with her new piece). Lately, that's high-tops. From style director Noria Morales's sweet white Isabel Marant lace-ups (a recent acquisition from Paris Fashion Week) to associate editor Chi Chau's Marant high-top addiction, this season's obsession with sneakers has spread to Fab HQ. If you're on the fence, here's what made us high-tops fans: first, models, fashion insiders, and celebrities showed off designer iterations of the old-school favorite with a fresh twist, and now classics like Nike are giving their versions a stylish update with Liberty florals and colorful finishes. The best part? These kicks are as comfortable as they are cool (if you can wear them at Fashion Week, you can wear them anywhere), and they're the perfect alternative to Fall ankle boots. Click below to shop the ones we're loving right now.
