Comfortable, Cute, and Peak Cool: 29 Sneakers That Get 5 Stars From Me

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.

"It's a classic shoe, still looks modern and cool, and the fit is great! So comfortable. I appreciate the darker sole on the white trainers so it doesn't show dirt easily and looks cleaner. Get it!!" — Adidas reviewer

"A nice classic cut on these retro basketball sneakers. They are extremely comfortable and easy to dress up or down." — Nordstrom reviewer

"This was instant nostalgia! Super comfortable and went with a lot of my staple pieces. It's going to be a hot item this summer." — Nordstrom reviewer

"I can't wait to wear this sneaker all summer! These are super comfy and did not cause any blisters on my first wear. I would say order true to size or size down 1/2 a size if in between." — Nordstrom reviewer

"These are the best sneakers around. They are supportive, made well, and I wear them year-round." — Nordstrom reviewer

"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

"The shoes are fantastic! I am on my feet 10+ hours a day at work and these are super comfortable! The exposed foam on the tongue is honestly not that noticeable and doesn’t bother me at all. Overall 10/10." — Nordstrom reviewer

"Let me tell you something about these shoes… I love them. They are the perfect mix between old school and classic. Plus, no break-in is required. They fit super nicely and are true to size." — 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
