Truth of the matter is, not all sneakers are comfortable. Even some of the chicest styles can lack ample cushioning and feature too tight constructions that seem to rub in all the wrong places.
But all hope is not lost. Several brands are getting it right with on-trend looks and super-comfortable designs — from chunky dad kicks to glitter-embellished styles with features like memory foam footbeds and flexible outsoles.
To help you wade through all the options, we’ve rounded up our favorite sneakers that offer the perfect marriage of comfort and style. Read on to shop for them all.
1. Skechers Women's D'Lites Sneaker
These chunky kicks are perfectly on trend and feature a memory foam insole for a pillowlike feel with every step.
Pros: This adorable ’90s-inspired silhouette is done in faux leather with contrast overlays and comes in more than three dozen colors. To amp up comfort, it also includes a padded tongue and collar. Meanwhile, a thick rubber outsole offers a slight height boost plus added traction on slick surfaces. They’re available in wide and extra wide widths to accommodate wide feet.
Cons: Still, some users may find the toe box narrow.
2. Aomais Women’s Low Top Canvas sneakers
You’ll want to wear these classic canvas kicks 24/7, not only because they’re super versatile but because they’re also noticeably plush and lightweight.
Pros: This budget-friendly pick features a breathable lining, soft padded insole and nonslip outsole to prevent slippage. It comes in black, white and off-white for easy outfit pairings.
Cons: These don’t offer any arch support.
3. Forever Link Women's Remy-18 Glitter sneaker
While these glittery kicks aren’t the most supportive style on our list, they still offer reasonable comfort for the price.
Pros: These sporty yet high-glam sneakers are the perfect statement-making addition to any wardrobe. They come in a range of eye-catching tones like emerald green and rose gold, plus they feature modest cushioning and are overall lightweight and flexible. Wear them to elevate everyday outfits or to a wedding for dancing the night away.
Cons: These may not be as long-lasting as other options. They also lack arch support.
