The 12 Best Nike Sneakers for Women to Keep Your Collection Fresh & On-Trend

The term “sneakerhead” is often associated with men in their mid-20s who frequent stores like Supreme and Aimé Leon Dore and drop upwards of a grand on hot designer releases like it’s NBD. But I’m here to say that you don’t have to spend seven paychecks to know and love a good pair of sneakers when you see them. I have dozens of kicks in my closet and rarely spend more than $150 on a pair. The reason why? I opt for classics that never go out of style, so when I buy a new pair, I can wear them for years.

I’ve found a few brands that I can depend on the most for getting high-quality shoes that are equal parts trendy, unique and durable as hell. And none are more reliable than Nike, of course. Yeah, when it comes to sneakers, the store’s best-known for its all-white Air Force 1s that you probably see on the street a few times a week (I’m not hating, these are versatile good shoes!) but as a shoe-obsessive, I’m gonna challenge y’all to take a look past those shoes and see all of the other incredible styles that Nike has to offer. Seriously, you’ll be shocked to find some incredibly unique ones that are within budget and special to your own personal style.

Best Nike Sneakers for Women at a Glance

When I look for a new pair of Nikes there are a few rules I like to follow. First, I ask myself if the shoes are in a style I don’t have. If I already have a chunky pair, maybe I’ll go for a skater shoe or something a little more sporty. Second, I’ll see if there’s a style that comes in a colorway I love or one that’ll match a lot of my closet. One of my favorite pairs of Nikes are black and brown Air Maxs because they look so dope with truly anything I’ve got on. Third, I’ll check out the price tag. Again, I try not to spend more than $150 on a pair, but since these are from a brand I know that creates long-lasting kicks, I’ll consider going slightly above budget if they fit my style, taste and needs.

I know it’s intimidating to go into a sneaker store when it seems like experts and style snobs are surrounding you, but trust me when I say every shopper is in the same boat. We’re all just trying to find a cool new pair of shoes that’ll make us look and feel as good as possible. To make your sneaker shopping easier, though, I rounded up some of the most on-trend Nikes you can buy now. These include a pair of low Blazers that are fit for the office, some Air Max 97s that’ll bring alllll of the vintage vibes to your closet and some high-top Jordans that any basketball fan will be jealous of.

The best part of copping Nike sneakers? You can usually find them marked down on Nike’s site or at other retailers like Foot Locker. In fact, several of our top picks are on sale as we speak, so keep scrolling to shop the best Nike sneakers on the market.
