Sneakers are great shoes for women’s casual wear. With a huge variety of designs and brands coming out every year, women can surely find a pair that will fit their personal style and lifestyle.
But due to the fast cycle of sneaker trends these days, one can easily end up buying pairs of sneakers that will fall out of style as fast as they came in. Good thing some sneaker designs stood the test of time and have managed to attain classic status over the decades.
Here are five sneakers that will never go out of style.
1. Adidas Superstar
You definitely have seen these shoes around whether on Instagram and in real life. The Adidas Superstar was originally released in the year 1969 making it one of the brand’s most enduring designs. It was designed as basketball sneakers and was popular on the wooden court in the 1970s. But the shoe’s fashionable design was only noticed in the 1980s. And with the resurgence of 80s fashion among the youth within the last few years, the shoe design became popular once more cementing its place in fashion.
2. Nike Air Force 1
The Nike Air Force 1 is another basketball sneaker to crossover into casual wear. The shoes were first introduced in the early 80s. It is famous for its high top strapped design and classic silhouette which makes it flexible enough to come in many colors and add-on designs. However, the all-white Nike Air Force 1 is the most famous and iconic variation of the shoe.
3. Chuck Taylors
Chuck Taylors are another popular shoe choice among the youth across generations and decades. Some even say that Chuck Taylors have been worn since the beginning of America.
They can come in a wide variety of colors and design variations thus enabling wearers to adapt them to their personal style easily. Chuck Taylors are also popular because they are a great bang for the buck. A pair of Chucks can get one through their teenage years well into adulthood. The shoe design is also popular among celebrities with Rihanna, Kristen Stewart and Zac Efron rocking them on a regular basis.
Vans originated as skateboarding shoes popular in California. But they have since crossed over to the mainstream shoe market. They are a popular footwear choice among the youth and even older people due to their simple and clean designs which can be worn with almost anything. And like Chucks, they’re relatively affordable and can last you for years. Celebrities like Rita Ora, Chris Brown and Gwen Stefani are some of the shoe brand’s biggest fans.
5. Reebok Classics
If there is a sneaker hall of fame the Reebok Classic will be up there with the Nike Air Force 1 and the Adidas Superstar. The shoe’s enduring popularity is attributed to its classic design in plain white with a textured grip sole. It also benefited from the white shoe trend that has been going on for years. Reebok can design other fashionable shoes but the Reebok Classic will always be the most popular.
A pair of good, classic and sturdy sneakers can go a long way. Avoid falling into short-lived sneaker trends and invest in a classic pair that will never go out of style. If you’re looking for the best bang for your buck, go for a pair of Chucks or Vans in your favorite color. A pair of white sneakers like the Adidas Superstar, Nike Air Force 1 or Reebok Classic will also be a great addition to your wardrobe.
