Not too long ago, it was considered a niche activity. Now, sneaker collecting has become a global phenomenon with its own community exchanging information about a wide range of kicks, particularly limited-edition ones – and reselling them for great sums.
Sneakers are now considered a wardrobe necessity, with people amassing them either just for the sake of growing their collection; or to pair different kicks with a variety of different ensembles.
Despite their reputation for being comfortable, not all sneakers are cozy fits – some look great, but are torture to wear. That’s because the thing with sneakers is, fit is everything.
So if you’re a sneaker newbie and are just starting your shoe journey, make comfort your number 1 criterion when choosing a pair of kicks. Below is a list of some of the most comfortable sneakers on the market to help you get started on your sneaker adventure.
Skechers Goodyear D’Lites 4 Sport Shoes
One of the most trusted shoe brands on the market, Skechers should be your first stop for purchasing your first pair of sneakers. Some argue that despite the brand’s shoes being comfortable, their designs are lackluster. However, there are a few hidden gems that you can find, such as the Goodyear D’Lites 4 Sport Shoes, which are chic and comfy at the same time. Who says one has to sacrifice comfort in order to look stylish? Skechers says otherwise, and this pair of sneakers will up your style game to the max.
Nike Air Force 1 ’07
One of the most recognizable sneakers in the game – and the most comfortable too – the Nike Air Force 1 ’07 is your next option for all-day comfort. While they may be a bit on the heavy side, they don’t feel as clunky when you walk in them.
Breaking them in may be a bit challenging, but after a couple of wears, walking in these iconic sneakers will be easy-breezy.
Nike Dunk Low
Another must-have pair to include in your everyday ensemble, the Nike Dunk Low is one of the most sought after shoes on the market. Everyone who is anyone has a pair of these sneakers in their shoe closet.
It’s the most versatile pair of kicks, and the comfiest to wear. With a wide range of designs, your choices are practically limitless!
New Balance 2002r
New Balance has the comfiest shoes and the chicest designs in the game. The brand knows to never compromise style over comfort, so it’s hard to choose which shoe to include in this list. Ultimately, we narrowed them down to two pairs.
The first pair: The New Balance 2002r has the softest lining, and it’ll make you feel as if you’re walking on clouds. Super comfortable and stylish too, you don’t want to miss the chance of owning this pair.
New Balance 550
The second pair of New Balance kicks we’d recommend for all-day comfort and style is the New Balance 550. They’re lightweight, although a bit snug across the bridge of the foot, but still the most wearable shoes.
They’re the most comfortable shoes to wear out of the box, so you’d have no trouble breaking in these bad boys.
Converse Chuck 70’s
While Converse sneakers are THE brand for any shoe enthusiast, they do take some time to get comfortable in. So you may have to wear your pair a bit longer to break them in.
This particular pair looks more chic the more you wear it! They look good, despite being rough around the edges. Have fun breaking these babies in!
Vans Core Classics
Vans shoes also take time to get used to – but once broken in, they’re heaven. The brand’s sneakers don’t provide that much support compared to the other shoes in this list, but this pair is one of the best to wear if you’re just going out and about with your day.
They’re classic and timeless, and can be worn with any style in mind.
