Thick-Base Sneakers for Summer

Everyone’s favorite shoe gets a lift
364

Sneakers need no introduction: they’re cool and practical, grounded but freeing. They look better with wear but always feel fresh because functionality informs their design. The most classic of all sneaker silhouettes may be the thick-base, and from the impeccably minimalist to the playful and textural, we’ve rounded up some favorites. We love them most when paired with a dress, but a good thick-base sneaker adds a streamlined lightheartedness to any ensemble.
