As the Fashionista office can attest, I have been obsessed with slip-on sneakers lately. I'm not a fan of movement-restricting footwear -- I wore heels oh, maybe 10 times in 2013 -- and walking up, down and across New York, London and Milan for fashion month only reinforced that.

After combing through hundreds of styles, this perforated black pair from Common Projects ended up at the very top of my list. At $450, they are a little more than I wanted to spend on trendy footwear, but nothing else struck me as so "perfect" -- the sleek shape, the perforated leather, the product number inked in gold on the side, everything.

I'm going to try them out for the next few weeks, and if I'm still wearing them regularly by high spring, I might go for a printed pair as well -- in particular, I'm eyeing this stripes and floral combo from Mother of Pearl.

If the Common Projects pair are out of your price range, you might consider this perforated black leather pair from Vince ($195), or these faux croc pairs from Sam Edelman ($100) and Topshop ($35).

Common Projects perforated slip-on sneakers in black, $450, available at Barneys, The Line and La Garconne.
