If you are anything like me, no matter where you are going or who you are going to see, you always reach for your good old basic sneakers. Since sneakers are so in and can be paired with any style nowadays. You want to have the best basics in your closet, starting with shoes! Here are the best basic sneakers for any outfit or occasion you have in the works!
Vans Old Skool
The vans old skool sneaker will match with everything. It is a low rise sneaker that comes in all colors and even custom. The all-white pair is definitely a go-to. They feature an all-white sneaker with a wavy line going through them. They give off a retro, modern, and trendy vibe all in one. They can be paired with anything from jeans, to leggings, to even a mini dress. Not to mention they are super stylish, but also really comfy. You will be able to wear these for any activity. Trust me, you will seriously wear these every day.
The Vans Authentic sneaker is an absolute classic and one of the best basic sneakers you can buy. These sneakers really transform on the foot. These shoes are very versatile in how you dress them. These Vans look good with jeans, leggings, and even joggers. They are comfortable and easy to slip on and off once they are broken in.
I’m going to be completely honest, I bought these not that long ago and I were them every single day. They feature an all-white shoe with bursts of black on the logo and the back of the ankle where it says, Nike. These shoes honestly dress up any outfit and give you a retro look. If you are into having a unique style, I guarantee nobody else will have these. Since they are neutral colors, they match with any outfit. These are one of my favorite basic sneakers and I can not wait to wear these this summer with shorts.
Converse Chuck Taylor All Star
Converse have really been in style and have stayed in style since back in the day. Today, they can be styled with just about anything. I prefer the high top All Stars, but it is always about your personal style and what speaks to you! The white canvas of the shoe is basic and simple, making it super easy to pair with any outfit you are wearing. I would pair them with a graphic tee and jeans, but they honestly go with everything. Converse also makes a platform version which I am looking forward to getting and trying out!
Superga Acot Linea
The Superga Acot Linea have been a very trendy shoe lately. They feature a canvas with a platform rubber sole. They have silver grommets holding the shoe laces in place. This sneaker is so simple, it matches with everything and makes your legs look super long. If you pair these with colored leggings or even jeans, you will feel so good! They are comfy and do not feel like you’re walking on a platform sole. These sneakers also come with cute different designs on them!
Stan Smith Silver Back
Stan Smith’s are another classic sneaker that has been around forever. It is a simple shoe with a greenback that includes the Adidas logo. You can never go wrong with the classic, but if you’re looking for a style that will pair better with your outfits, then the silverback would be the best option. When light hits the back of these, they reflect different colors, and honestly, it is so cool! They give off a very trendy and modern vibe. They also make this style with a black back that would match with any outfit as well!
Nike Air Force Ones
If you like to be on-trend, these might be for you. The Nike Air Force Ones have been seen on so many celebrities like Madison Beer, Bella Hadid, and even Kylie Jenner. These sneakers have been going viral for the past year or so. The classic white is the most commonly seen. However, some Etsy shops and other sneaker shops customize the sneakers by painting whatever you would like on them, from song lyrics, to even pictures. The Air Force Ones come in the high top or a low top version. It is all based on preference because they are both super trendy right now.
Puma Carina Sneakers
The Puma Carina Sneakers are a lace-up sneaker that give off the same vibe as the Air Force Ones. They have a chunky ribbed sole and a leather body. They come with a design on the midsole that gives them more detail, so they are not just plain sneakers. These sneakers will match with any outfit since they are minimal and lightweight.
Reebok Club C Double Sneaker
Reebok has started to remake some of their older and more trendy sneakers and we love it! Ariana Grande has even been seen doing a collaboration with Reebok and rocking their vintage sneakers. They feature an all white body and a light brown rubber sole. They are super light on your feet and very comfy. The tan soles really differentiate them from other basic sneakers. These are trendy, but unique at the same time!
Vans Classic Slip-Ons
The Vans Classic Slip-Ons are such an easy shoe to throw on if you are in a rush or just do not feel like tying your shoes. They feature a full canvas body, no laces, and they have a white rubber sole. They match with literally every outfit! They look so good paired with colored legging dresses, or even jeans. At first, they are a little tough to break in, but once they are molded to your feet, they are so comfy. You will get so much use out of these, you will always be reaching for them in your closet! Trust me!
