If you are going to play sports (or even pretend to do so), you should do it in style.

So how about getting a pair of designer athletic shoes?

Here are some of my favorites for fall …

Dolce & Gabbana Quilted Patent Sneaker
$295
Quilted patent leather is big this fall, and that’s carried over into athletic shoes with this cute sneaker from Dolce & Gabbana.

Gucci Boulevard Lace-Up Sneaker
$395
It sort of looks like a bowling shoe, but much better. I love the red Gucci insignia on the heel. Seems like a good shoe to wear when you are out walking or power shopping.

Y-3 Sprint Sneaker
$230
Now these are my favorite. I just adore the silver metallic stripes against the black. These shoes are very sporty to wear if you are going to a casual event.
