How about a Plimsoll? Ashton, Nikki, Sarah & Emily

What is a "Fashion Sneaker" you ask?

We defined this as a soft canvas or suede shoe with a rubber sole with the intended purpose of expressing one's style while also feeling comfortable. These shoes range in colors, designs, & utility; however, they are becoming more of a staple in fashion due to their new pairing with jeans, tights, skirts and many other items that were typically saved for less casual shoes.

Where did we look?
