We're in the last month of summer and back-to-school season is right around the corner, so there's no better time than now to pick up a fresh pair of sneakers. If the idea of back-to-school sneakers resurfaces memories of light-up soles and Velcro closures, know that there are tons of modern adult styles that will get you just as excited as the kiddie versions you once loved.

Truth be told, this rings true now more than ever: After the athleisure trend took off, stylish sneakers have become a mainstay and designers like Markus Lupfer and Cole Haan are turning out eye-grabbing styles—there are even sneaker collabs, like designer Mary Katrantzou for Adidas. (The good news is, unlike Kanye's Yeezy Boost 350s, you can actually get your hands on feet in them.)
