If there's one piece of footwear that's proven itself essential in 2021, it's sneakers. Especially if you're the assigned APOR of your home while in lockdown, and you've been busy running errands and standing in lines for the whole team. 

That said, sneakers can get worn out pretty quickly, so it might be wise to save up for a sturdy pair you can wear for a long time. If you have savings ready for 8.8, or whatever the next sale may be, check out these sneakers you can easily pair with other pieces in your wardrobe:

For #teamathleisure: adidas Forum Mid

This season, adidas Originals launched *modernized* versions of the Forum Mid and the Forum Low in its OG white and blue colorway. It's part of their #RememberTheFuture campaign to honor today's creatives: artists, musicians, designers, grassroots community organizers, and beyond.
