Move over flip flops! Trade in your work week pumps for a snazzy pair of sneakers over the weekend.

The bold colors, eye-catching prints and fancy features (we love a hidden wedge) will put a smile on your face and some pep in your step.

Plus, a new crop of killer collabs like Converse x Marimekko, Nike x Liberty London and Keds x Madewell--are popping up just in time for spring. Fashion meets function at it's finest!

Check out the cool kicks in the slideshow below and start running around town in style.
