Flattering probably isn’t a word you typically associate with sneakers. But, if you want to avoid purchasing a pair that makes your feet look big and bulky, there are a few key features to look for. First, check the material; you want to opt for a flexible canvas rather than a stiff leather, which tends to look clunky. The other key feature to look for is low-cut sides (think classic Converse)—that way more of your ankle is exposed, lending an illusion of a smaller foot. Intrigued?
Once you have your flattering new sneakers, we suggest styling the casual kicks with cropped flared jeans and a simple tee for a laid-back look or a printed set from Reformation for the perfect day-to-night weekend outfit. Shop the sneakers that actually make your feet look smaller below.
