Limited editions and collab shoes will always capture our attention, but these classic styles deserve permanent status in your collection. Mostly under $100, you don’t have to be so precious with them either.
Controversial opinion: high-tops are for a very specific person. Personally, I’ve never owned a ton of them (I’m not a fan of the way they look on my legs), but Converse’s Hiker and Nike’s Blazer Mid have both really made me reconsider my stance. The low Air Jordan 1s have been my go-to silhouette, but for this year I’m thinking about buying a high-top version.
Calling all hypebeasts, this one is for you. If you manage to score any of these limited colorways or collaborations, count yourself lucky. Traditionally an outdoorsy brand, Salomon has gained a cult following with its new collection of lifestyle sneakers. It recently launched at Matches, so I predict it’s the next it-sneaker poised to blow up. Margiela’s Tabi sneaker in collaboration with Reebok is another style gaining a lot of traction.
I’ve been so into retro-looking sneakers lately, and fashion girls agree. From New Balances to Nike’s Daybreak, this silhouette is so easy to wear I promise they’ll become your new favorite.
For those who prefer the finer things in life, these designer sneakers will cover all the bases. While spending more doesn’t necessarily equate to better quality, these designs feel so unique they’re worth the splurge.
