Sneakers have been at the forefront of fashion for a few years now and their popularity just keeps on rising. Michael Jordan’s Air Jordan 1’s are becoming more exclusive and harder for people to get their hands on and the same can be said for Kanye West’s Yeezy’s. Nowadays, sneakers can be paired with anything and are not constrained to a particular look. From dresses to suits and more, there are now pairs of sneakers that can top off those looks. If you want to step up your sneaker game and don’t know where to start, you’ve come to the right place. Here are the top five sneakers that everyone should have in their wardrobe.
- Air Jordan 1’s. Honestly, any pair of Jordan’s in your closet is already a win in our
book, however, there’s something special about those Jordan 1’s. Every couple of months there is a new colorway of the classic sneakers that is released, so you can either snag the latest and hottest pair or look in the past and cop one of the originals. Either way, you can’t go wrong with either of them.
- Air Force 1’s. This pair of sneakers is classic, crisp and clean. The all white Air Force
1’s, colloquially called G-Fazos in Chicago, look amazing with every outfit and they
won’t break your bank as much either. Air Force 1’s are almost always readily available
at any retailer, so there’s no reason why they shouldn’t be sitting in your closet today.
- Yeezy’s. Yeezy’s are just as hard to get like Air Jordan 1’s, regardless of the specific
style you’re searching for. Whether you’re in the market for the Yeezy 350s or Yeezy
700, you will probably have to pay a hefty resell price or fight off “bots” on its release date. If you’re willing to drop a large amount of cash, or have connections, Yeezy’s are definitely the sneakers you should be rocking.
- New Balance 990. These “dad shoes” are beloved in the DMV (DC, Maryland, and
Virginia) and Philadelphia and there’s no surprise as to why. Originally released in 1990, these New Balance sneakers are equally comfortable and stylish. They’re the perfect pair of sneakers for someone who is a bit more subtle in their fashions.
- High Top Converse. The iconic “Chuck Taylor’s” is that one pair of sneakers that will
never go out of style. The black Converse shoes are the most affordable pair of footwear on this list, and you’ve probably already owned a pair or already have one in your closet. The Converse silhouette is one that has been reworked over and over again, Comme Des Garçons is the first brand to come to mind given their collaboration. If you don’t buy any other sneakers on this list, do yourself a favor and at least buy this one. Spice up your closet with these must-have sneakers, or treat a loved one with these kicks!
