9 Pairs Of Sneakers Every Girl Should Own

9 Pairs Of Sneakers Every Girl Should Own

When it comes to wardrobe essentials, you gotta be able to do both – heels and sneakers.

Style

We need balance in all areas of our lives and that includes the shoe department. Although a lot of us love the allure and the appeal of a great heel, sneakers have made a stylish comeback over the years and can be dressed up or dressed down. Plus, the physical benefits they give to your body can't be beat. Sneakers cause less pressure for your legs and also give your feet so much comfort.

And I honestly think that they are functional in ways that appeal to me more now that I am not in my early 20s. I have also found a way to elevate whatever pair of kicks I choose to throw on. I can turn a pair of Air Jordan 1 Retros into high fashion in a hot minute. Want to get more into creating a sneaker collection but don't know where to start? We have assembled a list of versatile sneakers that we believe all women should cop. Scroll through for some fire kicks to add to your closet!

Air Jordan 1s

Nike

Air Jordan 1 High Zip Premium

The Air Jordan 1s are one of the most classic sneakers in the game. It's highly coveted as an elite design that can be worn at any age with almost any outfit.

Women's Nike Presto React Sneaker

eBay

You gotta have some dope kicks when you're doing Kanye's Workout Plan. Prestos provide a comfort and stability that make them an ideal candidate.

A pair of New Balances are what sporty chic dreams are made of. I have no doubt you can pull this look off too once you add these to your cart.

$60

Women's Nike Air Max 97 Sneaker

Nike

This may be one of our faves on the list. Air Max of all years are fire but the 97s hold a special place in our hearts. We don't know if it's the style or the array of colors but we can't get enough.

$107

FILA Women's Disruptor II Premium Casual Athletic Sneakers

DSW

The fashion industry somehow morphed FILAs into an ugly sneaker and still managed to make it work. This brand was in the center of the 90s resurgence last year and it has made for some jaw-dropping looks, from runways to sidewalks.

$65

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Chuck 70 High Top Sneaker

Chuck Taylors are the epitome of nostalgia. They can be basic but they can also be over the top. You can opt for high tops or low tops and still look fly.

$85

Nike Air Force 1 '07

Nike

A wise man once said, "Give me two pairs. I need two pairs. So I can get to stomping in my Air Force 1s!" Air Force 1s may seem "trendy" as you notice celebs like Bella Hadid and Kylie Jenner wearing them, but they have been a staple in our community for decades. Whether you're donning a mini dress or boyfriend jeans, AF1s will always be the move.

$90

Vans Ward Low Top Suede Sneaker

DSW

Vans provide somewhat of a vintage vibe but in the most fresh and fun way. The best thing about this shoe is its thick sole. Back in the 60s, the creator, Steve Van Doren, wanted to double the size of the sole of all of his competitors. That small delineation created a truly evergreen sneaker.

$60

Adidas Originals Superstar Shoes

Adidas

Adidas Originals Superstar in Cloud White/Core Black

Even I know that the Superstar Adidas are essential. When it comes to styling, I typically pair them with a high slit maxi dress for a perfectly balanced look. No matter the occasion, you can rock this style with ease by adding your own sauce to the mix.

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
