Strappy sandals and sky-high wedges will always be in style during the summer, but sometimes you need something a bit more practical without sacrificing the look.

Lilliana Vazquez, TODAY Style Squad member and founder of TheLVGuide.com, shared her favorite summer sneakers that mix just the right amount of function and fashion.

Vazquez visited TODAY Thursday to show great ways to rock these three trends well into the fall.

1. Espadrille sneakers

Espadrilles say summer fun while a lace-up athletic shoe adds convenience and comfort. Meanwhile, the platform adds a little lift while the sneaker sole keeps the vibe laid back — it's the perfect mix! With embroidery, metallic accents and a ton of colors, there are dozens of great ways to try these out.
