As POPSUGAR editors, we independently select and write about stuff we love and think you’ll like too. If you buy a product we have recommended, we may receive affiliate commission, which in turn supports our work.
Being comfortable never goes out of style, so investing in a top-tier sneaker collection is always a smart idea. When it comes to picking out cool and on-trend shoes that are worthy of purchase, we look for a few key elements: good design, quality materials, and the perfect fit — because who wants to be uncomfortable?
It’s no secret our editors test out hundreds of shoes to provide you with the best product recommendations. Love some casual, everyday kicks? We’ve got you. Prefer something sportier and performance based for working out? We found those, too. And of course, if you’re looking for cute sneaks that you can dress up for work, we’ve tried them.
To help you find the best sneakers for yourself, we enlisted our expert editors along with celebrities we’ve interviewed — like Kate Hudson and Ashley Graham — for their masterful recommendations for 2023. Whether you want something cheeky and playful or sleek and modern, we’ve uncovered the best of the best that are trending right now. We’ll tell you all the reasons we love these sneakers, so you’ll have plenty to mull over.
We organized our expert list by trendy sneakers, sustainable sneakers, best high tops and classic sneakers with our top picks from Nike, New Balance, Reebok, Converse, Puma, and more. Word of advice: your shoe closet is about to get a whole lot fuller, so make some room!
