I'm a Fashion Writer Who Wears Sneakers Every Day—These Styles Have My Attention

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that any time, any place, I’m going to show up in sneakers. Whether it be a business meeting, errands, or even to go out at night, there is a sneaker out there for every occasion. Now that I’ve collected enough sneakers to match most outfits and settings and I don’t technically need any more, I’m very picky about the styles I introduce into my wardrobe. For a pair of sneakers to capture my attention these days, it has to be beautiful on the inside and out, add something to the conversation, and have a personality that is compatible with mine—you know what I mean?

The styles below range from extremely functional hiking sneakers that have spiked in popularity lately to the white sneakers nearly every fashion person owns and purely lifestyle sneakers that are best suited for a party. I’m saying yas to all 31 pairs linked below. Keep scrolling to check out the six different styles that have my attention and all the sneakers on my wish list.


Vintage-inspired sneakers had a huge comeback the past couple of years and for good reason. These styles go with everything, are usually affordable, and are a great way to cover your bases. Plus, you can count on them never going out of style.

This maroon color will be so chic with other neutrals in your closet.

I'm usually not partial to this look, but this silver pair is so fire.

The green accent has the ability to bring a look all the way together.


The sneaker style I didn't see coming was easily the hiking/trail sneakers. For those of you that also happen to like hiking, these are a Godsend, especially for the sandy, highly slippery trails all over Los Angeles. 

A pair of Salomons has been on my list for a while now. Not only are they super comfortable and functional, but they also look super cool.

I'm calling it—these are the most comfortable sneakers ever.

You can walk through creeks and rivers with this waterproof pair.

Cop these for a hiking outfit that is also a 'fit—you know the vibes.


Wearing sneakers is, in fact, a lifestyle choice, so I propose looking at this category like heels or boots—purely for fun. Go for pops of color or interesting styles that will spark some joy every time you look down.

This Samba collab was made in heaven.

Gorgeous, stunning, these are the moment.

The denim accent is everything!

I have bought countless pairs of these in black and white and am going to switch things up this time.

Navy is a great alternative to black sneakers.


It is so hard to find running sneakers that are cute! Luckily, brands like Nike, ASICS, and On are coming with that fire these days and giving us some great options. 

I love the shape of ASICS. This colorway is super rare.

The geometric sole does it for me.

When you want to still look cute while working out.


I only discovered this genre of sneakers recently and haven't looked back. These blend components of flats and sneakers, which makes them super versatile. Plus, they give the appearance of longer legs by showing some skin.

I'm obsessed. They look amazing peeking out from under your trousers.

This vintage pair is so futuristic looking.


When I was growing up, my 4'11'' mom wore nothing but platform shoes and high heels, so these give me nostalgia. Platform sneakers are ideal for my girlies who like a little boost but still like to be comfortable.

Zebra stripes are fast becoming a favorite pattern.

Space Hippie is the perfect name for these.
