Fashion sneakers are the shoe you turn to when you want more support than a sandal or flat but don’t need the same kind of cushioning as an athletic “Dad” shoe. Everyday fashion sneakers are casual but not sloppy, sturdy but not bulky — and ideally, they’re sneakers that go with everything in your closet. They will have a chic, minimalist upper with a sole that you can tread anywhere. This doesn’t necessarily mean plain, but they might take their inspiration more from loafers or Oxfords than your standard running shoes.
White leather sneakers feel fresh and upscale yet laid back. This classic white adidas sneaker comes in neutral leathers (mostly white) with tonal stripes, as well as cleaner perforated designs if you don’t want an accent color. A comfortable layer of foam and a soft sock liner will help keep you on your feet all day. One fan raved, “Best purchase ever. I knew they’d be cute but I didn’t expect them to be SO comfortable. They also, unexpectedly, go with everything from summer dresses to jeans and shorts. I absolutely love these!” Available colors: 22 Available sizes: 5–11
Sleek, modern sock sneakers have an athletic profile in a minimalist lace-free design. There’s a heel tab to help you pull them on, although the lightweight mesh upper is so stretchy you might not need the extra help. (It’s also super breathable.) The rubber sole has light traction. “Very comfortable and easy walking shoe. I usually don’t like a tennis shoe without socks, but don’t need them with these,” one shopper observed, adding, “Love the light grey color. Matches everything.” Choose from more than 20 different neutral hues, like white, apricot (featured here), and deep gray. Available colors: 21 Available sizes: 5–13
See On Amazon If you need an affordable Converse alternative in a high-top build, these classic kicks from ZGR are everything. The high-rise canvas upper covers your ankle and laces down to a white rubber toe cap and striped sole. “I love them. They are comfy and match almost anything. You can dress them up or down,” a shopper pointed out. “They’ve put up to a lot of wear and tear and dirt and grime and they have survived extremely well.”

Dr. Scholl’s Shoes Women’s Madison Sneaker Amazon Dr. Scholl’s Shoes Madison Sneaker Get a pair of slip-on sneakers in leopard to add a pop of pattern that’s easy to wear with so many things. “I wear them to work, on the weekends, dressy or casual; they always fit the bill. I’ll probably get another color soon, but I absolutely adore these leopard prints,” one fan gushed. These glam sneakers have the insole technology that Dr. Scholl’s is known for: They’re engineered for comfort across three different planes, and a padded heel cup is trimmed on the outside with faux-patent leather for a little extra visual interest. With a thick rubber sole and synthetic upper, they’re a comfortable, sturdy shoe. Plus, they’re available in a range of wearable neutral colors and in regular and wide sizes. Available colors: 18 Available sizes: 5–11 (and in wide sizes)
adidas Women’s Cloud foam Pure Running Shoe With over 50,000 ratings, the adidas Cloud foam sneaker is on its way to becoming a new classic. It’s a knit slip-on style with two tabs that make them easier to get on and laces at the instep for an adjustable, secure fit. Inside is a layer of their proprietary cushioning that lives up to its cloudlike status, and the sole is engineered to be equally lightweight in a non marking rubberized foam. “They are extremely light weight, feels like you are running on air yet with support. Super cute, look exactly as pictured & are true to size,” one shopper commented, adding that they held up well to outdoor exercise and wiped clean with no stains. “Actually contemplating getting another pair in a different color just because these are so perfect.”

These budget-friendly white faux leather sneakers look as good as they feel. They have a soft lining and padded insole with a waterproof rubber sole that features light gridded traction. A small grosgrain stripe on the heel cup is a subtle upgrade accent that doesn’t detract from these sneakers’ clean lines. “These shoes are comfortable and great looking! I buy them because they’re non-leather, but they look as well-made as any leather ones out there for a fraction of the price,” one reviewer wrote. Choose from perforated and non-perforated options and even one mauve pair that feels eminently wearable. Available colors: 14 Available sizes: 6–10
Dr. Scholl’s Women’s Luna Sneaker Amazon.
These oh-so-comfy memory foam sneakers have a faux suede upper and ultra-clean lines, not to mention the nice use of texture, that belies their under-$50 price point. You’ll wear them all day with that plush cushion, and the rubber sole is flexible and waterproof while an elastic gore ensures they’re easy to slip on or off. “They are so stinking adorable and they go with everything! Not to mention that they are extremely comfortable, like walking on pillows. I’m really considering ordering a back-up pair in case anything happens to them,” one shopper mused. Choose from eight colorways, all in a super-wearble neutral palette. They aren’t quite as padded at the heel as other picks on this list, due to the overall low-profile style, so sensitive skin might want to pick up a good low-profile sock, too. Available colors: 8 Available sizes: 5–12
Get iconic style without the sticker shock in these adorable Converse alternatives. They tick all the boxes, with a low canvas upper with contrast stitching and silver metal eyelets, plus a white toe cap and subtle striped rubber sole. They come in classic colors including black, red, and blue with fun variations like the leopard, faux linen, and a peppy tie-dye. “I was excited to try these and so happy when I found they fit so nicely,” reported one shopper. “I’ve worn them nearly everyday since I got them.”

New Balance Fuel Core Nergize V1 Sneaker Amazon The mix of textures with an eye-catching strap over the instep makes New Balance’s Fuel Core sneaker one you won’t want to save for the gym. A lightweight knit upper is flexible and breathable, while inside, contoured memory foam builds serious arch support with ample cushioning. All of its colorways are nicely muted yet not at all boring — from black and fog gray to blush, and check out that navy with a brushed gold strap if it’s available in your size. “This is my 3rd pair of these shoes (all in different colors). They are so comfortable and go with everything…They’re truly an everyday sneaker,” a fan praised.

CARE OF By PUMA Low-Top Leather Sneakers Amazon Puma partnered with Amazon to create a line of street-style kicks at an affordable price point. These leather low-tops, with a subtle 3-inch platform, are cut like a retro gym shoe and have a perforated upper, but that sleek shape is pure 21st-century athleisure. The memory foam insole got high marks from shoppers, and more than one fan compared it to walking on clouds. “Amazing value! Shoes look great, feel great, and are holding up well,” a reviewer reported. “They’re not clunky, but have a nice streamlined fit.” Some shoppers with wide feet recommended going up a size.

Keds Women’s Champion Canvas Sneaker Amazon A quick and casual shoe for easygoing days, a white canvas sneaker won’t weigh you down and has the added benefit of being able to go in the washing machine if it gets dirty. “I can wear these everywhere, with everything and it’s as close to barefoot, I think I can get,” a reviewer pointed out. Although the breathable cotton canvas upper isn’t water-resistant, the thin rubber sole on these classic Keds is naturally waterproof with plenty of traction — and the shoe is low-profile enough to squeeze into a crowded suitcase. What’s more: They come in four widths — including narrow, regular, and two wide measurements — so there’s a shoe for everyone. Available colors: 9 Available sizes: 4–13 (and in narrow and wide sizes)
These Sperry canvas shoes look ready for the high seas, with their cute and preppy nautical striped heel accent and genuine rawhide laces.

Yes, your feet are that comfortable!” one fan reported, adding, “I love the way that the rawhide laces are coiled into a knot instead of tied in a bow.”

Daily Shoes Flat Slip-On High-Top Sneakers Amazon I couldn’t resist showing you this flat sneaker boot as an alternative to the Athlefit wedge above. This style is halfway between a sneaker and a Chelsea boot with a faux leather high-top upper and elastic ankle gore for the easiest slip-on fit. There’s some impressive padding along the back of the heel and a memory foam lining, with extra cushioning thanks to their thick rubber sole. “They are crazy comfortable, absolutely adorable,” a shopper commented. Several fans reported that the colors were true to what you see on screen, and some recommended sizing down for the perfect fit.

In luxe leather, these platform Puma sneakers are an elevated spin on your regular kicks. Clean lines are accented with swoops of tonal stitching and matching laces for a minimalist effect, and they’re well-cushioned with a soft lining inside for comfort. The 1.5-inch platform is nicely chunky without weighing down your feet — not to mention bouncy and shock-absorbent. “Feels like walking on clouds! I was a little worried about getting these because I am not a huge fan of platform shoes. But they are not super high platforms and are super cute! One of my favorite pairs of shoes,” a reviewer gushed.

I had no blisters and my feet were not overly tired. Definite win! I plan on ordering more in any available colors. I was finally able to retire my old Keds that were falling apart,” a fan vouched. Note: The brand advises to order up a half-size for extra width if needed.

Akk Lightweight Memory Foam Sneakers Amazon These comfortable walking sneakers look like an expensive athletic pair, but they’re all cushion and bounce — and, wait for it, they weigh only 0.8 pounds each for an extremely lightweight pair. The mesh knit upper has targeted channels for breathability, while inside is a padded collar and soft fabric lining layered over memory foam cushioning. The MD sole is a blend of EVA foam and rubber to provide excellent shock absorption and flexibility. “I honestly am in awe of how nice-looking and comfortable these sneakers are. I tried them out yesterday and got some head-turners; they even compared it to Adidas and Nike,” a reviewer remarked. “Absolutely in love with these sneakers. Will probably buy another pair.”

Lugz Clipper Sneaker AmazonSee On Amazon The Lugz Clipper sneaker has laidback skater style that leaves you with money left over to invest in your board. (Or at least an iced coffee.) A 100% canvas upper features a faux leather heel guard that looks cool while preventing excess wear, and twin elastic gores for an easy on. The interior is lined with a soft and breathable fabric, plus a removable cushioned lining between you and the skidproof rubber sole in case you need to swap out. The paint splatter colorway feels unique but neutral enough to go with anything and you can also score them in textured solids, pastels, and tie-dye. “I wanted Vans, but didn’t want to pay $60,” a reviewer confided. “Ordered these and wore them for an entire weekend walking around NYC. We walked like 30 miles in two days and these were surprisingly comfortable, I didn’t regret wearing them. I’ll definitely buy more.”

Superga Women’s 2790 Platform Sneaker Amazon If your aesthetic leans more towards edgy (or you’re seeking a little extra height), a platform sneaker in white canvas is your stylized spin on the basic. The extra-thick 1.5-inch rubber platform sole is a statement that actually absorbs more shock than your average sneaker — although they do have some heft to them. The natural cotton canvas upper is breathable but not water-resistant. “Cute shoes! I love these 90s style platforms- they make an ordinary white shoe way more fun!” raved one reviewer. Some fans did think they felt a little loose in the heel but remedied that with heel cup inserts. Available colors: 22 Available sizes: 5–10
Some trendy, quilted slip-on shoes channel one iconic handbag in a much more accessible package. The textured synthetic upper tops a comfortable thick rubber sole in a convenient slip-on design. Its collar seam is lightly padded and therefore less likely to rub, while subtle elastic gores ensure a comfortable fit that’s easy to get on and off. “These are my go-to daily shoes,” reported one shopper. “I teach and am on my feet all day so I need something comfy and these fit like a glove and feel like walking on a cloud! They are an amazing value for the money.” They’re available in regular and narrow widths, and if you’re looking for a slightly different style, make sure to scroll through the listing’s dropdown menu for variations on this theme.

Reebok Classic Renaissance Sneaker Amazon Sturdy and iconic, the Reebok Classic Renaissance sneaker is still going strong decades after its introduction. The faux leather upper is sewn with multiple layers to be strong and supportive with a soft fabric lining and plenty of padding. Inside are two layers of foam cushioning, including a thick layer that brackets the ankle and another under the tongue, that virtually guarantees they can’t rub. Underneath is a low lug sole that channels the grip of a hiking boot for plenty of traction. “This is literally the best shoe I’ve ever worn,” a fan gushed. “This shoe has actually made me more active because I don’t have the dreaded pain anymore. They are SO comfortable…Added bonus: much more stylish and cute in person.”

These on-trend sneaker booties boast just under two inches of lift, giving you a walkable wedge with a little extra height. They have a faux suede upper and a nonslip rubber sneaker sole, while the wide elastic strap across the front both ensures a secure fit and somehow makes them look far more expensive than they are. A short zipper inside each ankle makes the streamlined ankle boot easy to get on and off. “I bought them prior to a trip to use occasionally while traveling, and ended up wearing them almost everyday! They are SO COMFORTABLE! I walked miles in these while sightseeing and was amazed at how comfy they are. Plus, they are very cute and I got numerous compliments,” one fan raved. They’re available in several different finishes, from a black faux croco to a soft leopard print. Available colors: 11 Available sizes: 5.5–10

The waterproof rubber sole comes with light traction. “Beautiful shoes!” one reviewer gushed. “They match with everything & you can dress them up & dress them down!”

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team. In the era of Mean Girls and other early ’00s flicks, being popular meant something entirely different than it does now. Back then, low-rise everything, graphic tanks, and frosty white eyeshadow were the determinants of social capital. Nowadays, the parameters of popularity are much more varied and thankfully less reliant on high school cliques. It’s easier to track what’s trending with the technology we have at our fingertips, and there are dozens of super stylish things on Amazon that are so popular they keep selling out. These days, all you need to do to jump in on internet trends is, well, read a list like this. We’ve carefully combed through Amazon’s best-selling products to curate it, so every one has been selected with care. To paraphrase Kristen Chenowith in Wicked, these items are pop-u-lar. This list is jam-packed with clothing and accessories whether you’re a minimalist or a maximalist.
