If there’s one thing New York City girls have mastered, it’s dressing for their environment. Everything from unpredictable weather to crazy commutes to not-so-clean sidewalks has required Manhattan’s most stylish dwellers to think out of the box when it comes to getting dressed (and looking great as a result). Specifically, as it pertains to footwear, sneakers have long been a go-to option.
