For sneaker obsessives like me, the end of fashion month is a bit of a letdown. After watching an assortment of new shoe styles make their way down the runways in Paris, New York, Milan, and London, we now have to wait. Those chunky-soled Guccis and sleek Pradas won't actually be available until fall rolls around (and even then, it's a race to snag the buzziest styles).
So even though there's no instant gratification, we can start eyeing the styles that will sit on our closet shelves soon enough. Below, I've outlined 17 of my
favorite sneakers to debut this season. My tip: Start saving up for your favorites now.
