Ah, spring. The weather is warm enough to pack away your winter boots yet not warm enough to break out your summer sandals—which leaves you with one option. Sneakers.
I love sneakers. Dress them up, dress them down, wear them running, wear them walking... in my opinion, they're the most versatile of all the shoes. And since spring is #sneakerseason, we've rounded up 10 of the most popular pairs (according to reviewers and celebrities alike!) including the cult-favorite Allbirds and the pair that Kate Middleton has been wearing for years.
1. The wool sneakers everyone's obsessed with
Meet the shoes that have been all over Instagram this past year and are a favorite among tons of celebs. But are Allbirds really worth the hype? One of our writers put the washable wool sneakers to the test to find out. Her verdict? Absolutely. She says not only are they incredibly cozy and lightweight but the sneakers also have a surprisingly supportive sole to cushion your foot.
2. These bamboo sneakers with a 5,000-person waitlist
When I first heard about Cariuma sneakers, I was skeptical. Sure, I figured they were comfortable—but were they really as comfortable as everyone swore? Now, two months later, I can safely say yes. In fact, I can safely say they're the most comfortable sneakers I've ever worn (and trust me, I've worn a lot of sneakers). Bonus: They're eco-friendly and made with sustainable, recycled materials.
3. These celeb-favorite athletic sneakers
What do Kate Middleton, Jennifer Garner, and Andi Dorfman all have in common? They're all obsessed with New Balance sneakers. I have the same pair as Kate and love that they're supportive enough for all my athletic activities yet stylish enough that I can wear them for everyday life, too. No wearing in necessary, either.
4. The prettiest Keds you can buy
Keds are cool. Keds that come in gorgeous floral prints designed by Rifle Paper Co. are even cooler. That's what you can get with this year's collab between the two brands. I have a pair from last year's line and love how they're as fashionable as they are functional. I.e. they look good and feel good.
5. These sneakers Meghan Markle loves
Name a woman who doesn't secretly—or not-so-secretly—covet Meghan Markle's wardrobe (we'll wait...). While you likely can't buy her entire closet, you can buy her favorite white sneakers for less than $60. The Adidas pair has high ratings for their versatility—reviewers say you can wear them with almost any outfit.
6. These iconic Vans
If you were a kid in the '90s, chances are high you had a pair of these chunky black skate shoes in your closet (guilty!). And if they're still in your closet, you're in luck—because apparently, the unisex Vans are back in style, with over 6,400 reviews. Celebs like Hailey Baldwin, Kourtney Kardashian, and Kendall Jenner have all been spotted wearing them out and about in recent months.
7. These supermodel-worthy sneakers
If it's good enough for a supermodel, it's good enough for the rest of us, right? If so, then you might want to consider these clunky white sneakers, which Emily Ratajkowski wears time and time again. Reviewers love that the Nike kicks are very well-padded and that they pair perfectly with everything from athletic clothes to dresses.
8. Reese Witherspoon's retro joggers
Is it 2020 or 1970? You wouldn't know by looking at Reese Witherspoon's go-to sneaks. The throwback running shoes, which are made with cowhide suede, are beloved by reviewers for their vintage-chic design and their cushioned insole that's perfect for walking.
9. These Bachelorette-approved sneakers
Fellow members of #BachelorNation rejoice! Not only do we know exactly which pair of sneakers former Bachelorette Hannah Brown loves to wear, we also know where to buy them: Nordstrom. These crisp white kicks have a metallic accent on the heel and are praised for being comfortable enough for every day wear.
10. These sneakers Kate Middleton can't stop wearing
Kate Middleton might always look perfectly put-together but even she likes to dress down sometimes. And when she does, it usually involves these timeless Superga sneakers, which she's been wearing since 2016, according to People. According to thousands of happy reviewers, the shoes are comfy for every size foot and, even better, are machine-washable.
