Some lace them up for weekly grocery runs; others, for actual running. And while we can’t imagine a better pairing for floaty culottes and midi skirts, you might prefer them as the finishing touch to all things structured denim. Whatever your approach, this year’s crop of newcomers—which range from techy to trend-forward—sets you up nicely for the year ahead. (Remember, 2021 is a marathon, not a sprint.)

THE
TRIED-AND-TRUE CREW

California-cool. Eco-conscious—made with responsibly sourced rubber from the Amazon. Covertly branded. Needless to say, these six pairs are cult favorites for a reason.
