For those who have encountered the dilemma of finding the perfect gear that can smoothly transition from the office to the gym—and beyond—look no further than athleisure wear. But it's not just about clothes.
Now, you can wear sporty sneakers to accentuate your wardrobe, whatever the occasion may be. Here we rounded up nine of our favorites that fit the bill; while some are purely for looks, others have technical benefits, too, so you can actually go from the job to the gym in the same pair (rather than just look like that's your plan).
