Plus, in 2020, we’re starting to think about sustainable options that are made using more eco-friendly materials. Yes, the new year is the perfect time to up your sneaker game, but we can all be that much more mindful about the pairs we’re investing in—not only chasing looks and hype, but also ensuring they’ll last for seasons to come. One thing is for sure: If you choose the right pair, you’ll be reaching for them more than any other style in your closet. So go ahead and start the year on the right foot with these solid sneaker picks.
