100 Chic Running Shoes

From Luxury Logo Kicks to Serpentine Sneaker Designs

— April 28, 2015 — Fashion
These chic running shoes range from comfy designer sneakers to workout-enhancing kicks that blend style with performance. In addition to snakeskin, studded and gilded sneakers, this list also zones in on performance-focused footwear accessories that don't skip out on fashion-forward details.

While accessories from Nike, Adidas and Reebok boast a strong focus on comfort and athletic features, staples from Christian Louboutin, Raf Simons and Balenciaga give luxury a new meaning. These accessories prove that expensive footwear can indeed be comfortable and are reflective of the fashion industry's recent sportswear focus.

As consumers' need for fashionable fitness gear increases, products that blend style with performance are taking the market by storm. While sports brands are embracing stylish elements, heritage fashion houses are appealing to a youthful demographic with casual and sporty accessories.
