Ever since the fashion gods ruled white sneakers back on trend a few years ago, we haven’t taken them off. They’re our go-to shoes for just about every occasion. And while we’re not about to unlace them forever, there’s a new contender for our soles: black sneakers. A pair of trusty black sneakers can go a long way when your closet is full and time is of the essence. They’re effortlessly chic, and not so loud. So start making space in your wardrobe because they’ll be around for a while – black is always the new black.
