The sneaker trend–whether its Rihanna wearing New Balance, or style bloggers in white tennis shoes–is the most comfortable “trend” we can think of. Usually shoe trends are back-breaking, but this look is as easy to wear as a pair of old sweatpants (when is THAT becoming a trend??). And within the sneakers category, the laziest version is the slip-on. You don’t even have to tie the laces for Pete’s sake. And within the slip-on category come some very cool calf-hair versions, which pricey RTW designers like Vince have made insanely popular this year. But you no longer have to be a rich kid of Instagram to enjoy the look; we found
knock-offs look-alikes of the Vince pair for under $100. But–can you tell which is which?
