Owning the right sneaker models is essential for the basis of any wardrobe and can help with your various needs and style inspirations. Whether it’s a versatile white tennis shoe or simply a decent pair of workout shoes, here are the 5 sneaker models everyone needs in their wardrobe.
1. White Sneaker
A pair of white sneakers are a definite must in any wardrobe. A staple that can be paired with jeans and a t-shirt or elevated with a lovely summer dress, this versatile basic will never really go out of style and, if kept clean, crisp and pristine, can be an eye-catching element to any look.
No matter which model or company you prefer to support, there is a white sneaker for anyone. Whether it be the subtle yet enduring classics like the Adidas Leather Stan Smith Shoes or the Nike Air Force 1’s, the trendy ’90s revival models of last season like the Fila Disruptor 2 Leather Sneaker or the Skechers D’Lites Lace-Ups or even a simple pair of platform Keds, these sneakers are a definite must in everyone’s wardrobe.

2. Proper Workout Sneaker
A sneaker model everyone should own would definitely have to be a proper pair of running shoes. Designed specifically for your exercise needs, these sneakers will not only look good, but also support you during your physical activities. It should provide a snug and well-shaped fit that is tailored to your foot. This is especially important for people who enjoy running since the ideal sneaker should take the shape of your feet as much as possible.
Try out different models and see which ones work best for you. Try the New Balance Minimus 40, a minimal feel shoe with a no-sew construction that won’t irritate the skin and a Vibram outsole for durability and traction, the Nike Zoom Train Command which is perfect for cardio workouts and offers a nice cushioning thanks to the Zoom Air-equipped heel or finally, the Reebok Crossfit Nano 8 that is made of breathable, stable and durable material, fits like a glove and aids with stabilization during unilateral moves.
3. Basketball Sneaker
The next sneaker models everyone needs in their wardrobe would be basketball sneakers. These athletic kicks were made popular out on the courts and have become sought after styles for just about anyone, from celebrities to the masses. With world famous models like Nike’s Jordan and LeBron shoes, Adidas or even Converse, basketball shoes have become staples in pop culture and fashion and don’t require you to be a part of any sports teams to be able to enjoy them.
Try a revamped classic with the Air Jordan XXXIII that do away with the laces and instead uses a FastFit cable solution to secure the foot, the Nike LeBron 16’s that deliver incredible bounce and support with an improved traction pattern or the Puma Uproar Charlotte that provides a lockdown fit and feels super light.

4. Slip-On Sneaker
Some other great sneaker models to add to your wardrobe would be a pair of slip-on trainers. Just as versatile as the white running shoe, this type of footwear can offer a more casual and laid back look or can be worn with a slightly more elevated outfit in mind. Not necessarily meant for any strenuous physical activity, these kicks are somewhat of a leisure sneaker yet still offer comfort, mobility and style.
For a more sporty casual look try a pair of skater classics like the Vans Black & White Checkerboard Slip-On Sneakers or the Adidas Matchcourt Slip-On Shoes. For a more polished and elevated casual look, try the Naturalizer Marianne Black Leather Sneakers or for a funky and trendy twist, try these H&M Brown Snakeskin-Patterned Slip-On Shoes.

5. Fashion Sneaker
These final sneaker models are maybe not extremely necessary, but they sure do add a daring high fashion feel to any outfit. Often bold, bright, super chunky or just plain wacky looking, these shoes are meant to be worn as a statement and, I’m not going to lie, take quite a bit of confidence to pull off and quite a bit of coin to purchase. But anything worth the risk is bound to pay off and these shoes will definitely pay off in complements and street style cred alone.
Try the chunky floral-patterned Dior D-Connect Kaleidiorscopic Sneaker, the stretch knit Fendi X FILA Sock Sneakers in Black and Multicolour or finally the Raf Simmons Blue and Pink Adidas Originals Edition Ozweego Sneakers.
