While we love heeled mules and ballet flats here at Who What Wear, there will always be a special spot secured in our hearts for sneakers. After all, when it's time to run errands or spend the day on your feet, you want shoes that will give you plenty of support. But that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style either. (If you saw us in the office, you'd be shocked at how many of us are wearing sneakers on a daily basis.) There are hundreds of pages of sneakers to sift through online, so we went in and narrowed it down to 29 that are worth the purchase.
You'll not only find classic pairs that are highly rated for comfort, but we also included some peak-cool pairs that are hot on the market and will probably sell out immediately. Think (in stock!) Adidas Sambas and Gazelles, brightly hued Nikes, and very retro-inspired New Balances. There's plenty to love in this mix. If you've been on the path to making some improvements to your sneaker collection, you've found the right place to start. Keep scrolling to get started.

"Cute, retro, and most importantly—unbelievably comfortable. I have knee and back problems, so I'm very picky about comfort. I ordered the blue/green one and the colors are awesome. I bought them just as fun everyday sneakers, but they're comfy enough I'll end up wearing them to the gym." — Nordstrom reviewer
"I’ve always been a fan of Converse and these platforms give off a whole new vibe that I’m loving. love pairing with dresses, biker shorts, and denim. I am typically a 7.5-8 (8 in Nike tennis shoes and Vans) and I ended up going with the 7.5 in these. They are super comfortable, and I can wear them all day long. I did get a little blister on the first couple of wears but after those few times, they’ve been good. I highly recommend!"— Nordstrom reviewer
"These shoes fit like a glove and are super comfortable. Based on the name I assumed the fit and feel would be similar to AF1, but I was surprised in a good way! These are way more comfortable and fit my foot better than the originals. The design is very versatile and could go with a variety of outfits and styles. The material seems to be pretty durable and breathable as well. Overall I love the design of these shoes and have already worn them multiple times. I wouldn’t change a thing!" — Nordstrom reviewer
