Fall’s Best New Sneakers
Style and substance come together in this season’s most sought-after casual shoes.
You probably already have a solid sneaker collection—from basic styles to those rare, limited edition finds—but fall is the perfect time to add to the haul. Not only are well-known athletic brands like Puma and Nike coming out with innovative new silhouettes but up-and-coming designers are also putting their own creative stamp on the market. Even luxury labels, better known for other kinds of covetable items, are joining the sneaker fray with their own stylish takes. In short, there’s never been more variety out there to spruce up your shoe closet with sneakers that seamlessly blend style and substance. Here are this season’s ten best:
Puma IGNITE EVOKNIT, $130
Puma’s striking Ignite Evoknit running shoes feature all the technical functionality (breathability, support, flexibility) of an athletic sneaker, but you'll want to wear these eye-catching kicks to more than the gym.
They Two-Tone shoes, $359
Clever geometric colorblocking elevates these wear-with-everything low-tops from They, which relaunches its online shop this week.
Greats G-Knit sneaker, $89
This sneaker from Brooklyn-based newcomer Greats features a one-piece melange upper that almost feels like second skin.
Clae Hoffman shoe, $100
Clae’s classic silhouette gets a cool-weather upgrade in sleek charcoal wool.
NIKE SFB 6" LEATHER Boot, $180
The military-inspired high-top-meets-boot from Nike is durable, comfortable, and perfectly stylish for fall thanks to Pendleton’s iconic stripe wool textile.
Salvatore Ferragamo High Top Sneakers, $625
These glamorous women's slip-ons aren't your trainer's high-tops, but the designer kicks do combine the athletic comfort of rubber-soled shoes and the winter-ready chicness of mink.
Clear Weather CONVX trainers, $130
These trainers have a lot going on: The abstract geometric print is an eye-catcher, but so are the futuristic rubber soles and the asymmetrical flap that cloaks the laces.
Axel Arigato CLEAN 90 ZIP SNEAKER, $215
Axel Arigato’s zip-up low-tops for women are well-made minimalism at its best and come in a variety of soft colors.
John Fluevog’s Magellan SPORTY CHUKKA SNEAKER, $199
