My Fashion Colleagues Said These Are the Chicest Designer Sneakers Out There

There are a few key shoe silhouettes every single one of my fashion colleagues has in their closets. A great pair of sneakers is one of the said styles. After all, cool trainers not only bring that comfort factor, but they also work flawlessly for a range of forward outfits. On that note, I thought I'd get insight into the sneakers my fellow fashion editors are gravitating toward right now. 

For the purpose of this story specifically, the team shared the best designer sneakers if there's interest for inspiration. Below, you'll uncover a smattering of A+ styles, including canvas kicks, high-tops, and more.

"I've had my eye on these Adidas x Wales Bonner sneakers for a while now. And now that warmer weather is almost here, I think it's time to act on them. I'm a loyal fan of Adidas sneakers, so I can trust that these will last, and I love the vintage vibe of these, especially the color palette."

"Retro sneakers have stolen my heart, and I've loved running around NYC in this pair by Tory Burch lately. Suede and leather make for the perfect contrast in textures. They're so comfortable and look amazing with a wide-leg pair of jeans."

"I'm a forever Converse stan—I own way too many pairs, and their comfort level is unmatched. While I've always been a big fan of the brand's collab with Comme Des Garçons, I'm really interested in the newer cobalt-blue colorway. I'm in love with this specific color for the summer (bring on all the saturated shades!), so these sneakers would be a great way to bring that pop of color in a more low-key way."

"When it comes to sneakers, my favorites will always be the Air Jordan 1. I was born in Chicago in 1998, which was one of Michael Jordan's best basketball years, so maybe I'm a little biased, but the classic style has always been (and will most likely always be) my favorite look. My closet is full of clothes with a '90s influence, and my sneaker collection is no exception. I love that you can basically find Air Jordan 1s in any colorway, if you're willing to outbid other sneakerheads for them. My favorite pair I own is the white-on-white pair. They go with everything."

"I'm deep in my obsession with basketball-inspired sneakers right now, and I think this ACNE Studios pair is pretty perfect. They have a low-key vibe to them that would look especially good with jeans and relaxed trousers, and the details, like the scribbled-on logo and pops of color, feel special."

"Aimé Leon Dore's sneakers in collaboration with New Balance have a cult following for a good reason, and I can personally say that they're a really great buy."

"Other sneakers in my collection don't matter anymore because all I want to wear are Nike Dunks. I love them with jeans, baggy track pants… basically everything."

"I'm a big fan of Golden Goose sneakers for the ease and versatility. I bought my most recent pair from Italist because the pricing is top-notch."

"If you, too, have been unusually drawn to the ultra-sporty On running sneakers lately, then I'm sure this Loewe collab will also put you closer to the edge."

"I bought these sneakers on a whim last summer and ended up wearing them a ton. They look good with dresses, leggings, shorts, jeans—basically everything. Plus, they're really comfortable."

"I love all-white sneakers, especially to wear with spring and summer dresses. I have my eye on this classic pair from Ganni right now. The subtle platform feels very cool yet highly wearable."
