3 Classic Sneakers I Always Buy, and 12 New Styles That Are Catching My Eye

·3 min read

Fun fact: I, like many others, live in sneakers in my day-to-day life. If I'm lounging at home, it's typically tube socks and slides, but when I'm out and about in my mask for errands and such, a fresh pair of kicks usually complete my look. On that note, there are three specific silhouettes I turn to on the regular whenever I'm refreshing my sneaker offering. For me personally, it's these styles that feel timeless and just always work given their highly versatile nature.

Naturally, I'm sharing the three sneaker styles with you below for you to get a sense of what I'm talking about. Below you'll find the silhouettes in my current rotation, along with a variety of shopping picks and more visual inspo from fashion people. I also took some time to scroll through some of my favorite stores to uncover a variety of other sneaker styles that are catching my eye at the moment.
