Every time Jennifer Lopez leaves the gym after a workout (does she exercise three times a day?!), Emily Ratajkowski walks her dog in a completely over-the-top outfit, or Kate Middleton does, well, pretty much anything, there are photographers waiting to capture their “everyday style.” While the lives of celebrities seem to be filled with glitz and glamour, on a daily basis, they opt for casual pieces. Stars—they’re just like us!
For every picture of Bella Hadid bathed in jewels on Venetian boat, there’s another picture of the model wearing an Adidas sweatshirt. The same goes for Kate Middleton, whose elegant but attainable style is what childhood princess dreams are made of. Thanks to stars providing fashion inspiration for the masses, we’ve rounded up affordable celebrity shoe brands so you too can go to the gym three times a day (or walk your dog looking supremely stylish).
Schutz is my go-to whenever I need a pair of wedges, heels, or sultry shoes to add a certain flair to my outfit. This seems to be the case with celebs, as the brand is loved by Camila Mendes, Bella Hadid, Chrissy Teigen, Alessandra Ambrosio, and more. Best of all, most styles ring in at under $200, making it more affordable than the majority of items in my closet. Schutz has been with me at pivotal moments in life, from college graduation to fashion events in New York.
If you haven’t heard of Veja, you’ve probably seen the brand everywhere without even realizing it. Specializing in simple, affordable sneakers, this brand is a go-to whenever Ratajkowski walks her dog on the streets of NYC wearing a totally inappropriate outfit for said activity (which is, um, always). The only part of these admittedly stylish looks are her shoes: Veja will take you from casual to sleek in no time.
Whenever I’m walking through SoHo, which is too often for my wallet, I make a stop in Sam Edelman. That’s because any time I’m looking for an affordable version of a specific shoe style, Sam Edelman has it. Thanks to its equally fun slide-on sandals and ankle boots, it’s no wonder celebs like Gabrielle Union and Victoria Justice favor the brand.
A classic choice for easy footwear, Adidas is loved by including Kate Middleton, Gigi Hadid, and many more. No one sticks to using them as exercise shoes… In fact, Adidas even makes appearances at royal events and at Paris Fashion Week. Fortunately, they’re always an affordable choice (and comfortable to boot).
Yes, you read that correctly. Love it or hate it (perhaps you have traumatic memories of wearing them in middle school), Uggs are making a comeback. Diverting from its traditional slouchy comfortable boots, Ugg is exploring the world of slides and over-the-knee boots, and celebs like Vanessa Hudgens seem to be on board.
I’m pretty sure everyone owns a pair of classic Nikes at this point. I have at least five pairs, and I’m pretty sure Bella Hadid has 500. Nike shoes are easy and accessible, and they can be styled with everything from workout leggings to a ball gown (if you’re Serena Williams).
