In our search for inspirational summer style, we spotted monochromatic sneakers all over New York City's SoHo neighborhood. The trend is nothing new, with men opting for clean white-on-white and black-on-black designs, or subtle combinations of the two tones. Unlike crazily themed SB Dunks, monochrome footwear pairs easily with a range of outfits — which will save you some cash. Check out 10 of our favorites looks in the gallery above.
