The most stylish sneakers that go with everything, regardless if it’s a pair of slacks, shorts or a dress, are the creation of SPITZ. This independent German brand focuses on quality as well as comfort and prides itself on creating sustainable and very feminine footwear. I’m a huge fan of their 1950s inspired saddle shoes, that are in my proud possession and I’m already salivating over a pair of the lilac sneakers from their Original line!
