But when it comes to the everyday sneaker, nothing beats a modest mid-range number. Because when you spend more, you expect more. And when you spend less, well, you expect nothing more than shoes that aren’t ugly.

Below, 11 new sneakers that’ll take you from fall to spring to summer, and more importantly, don’t sacrifice style for price.
