One summer-style must-have: a cool pair of sneakers. And while we like a straightforward fashion sneaker, we often reach for something more versatile, more performance-minded, that’s suitable for outdoor activities and workouts but that still looks good styled with the everyday pieces in our wardrobe. Take New Balance’s 1080s. They’re designed for running and engineered to feel comfortable, supportive. They have a lofty foam base and come in unique colorways. They make sense at the gym and most places you’d go after. Here, three ways to wear them.

TENNISCORE

Tennis whites: not just for the court anymore. The key to keeping your courtside staples relevant in your real life is to incorporate easy, wearable extras: A preppy summer knit, everyday diamonds, and tonal shoes tie it all together. Finish the look with ample sun protection, like a wide-brimmed hat and blendable SPF.

WORKOUT TO WHEREVER

When you’re trying to squeeze in that morning workout but don’t want to compromise on style, opt for casually cool pieces that put a fashionable spin on sportswear. A ribbed tank, poppy-red shorts, and vibrant sneakers can carry you from cardio to lunch to afternoon errands and beyond—just add a timeless button-down and a statement ring for a touch of polish.

UTILITY-MINDED

Double-duty pieces fuse form and function: A one-and-done jumpsuit that’s made to move in is an easy, all-day solution. Pair it with a brilliant pendant necklace for a feminine touch, plus architectural sneakers in a citrusy, saturated hue for a hit of color.
