As sneaker colorways have gotten brighter and more diverse, red has become one of the most popular color choices for kicks. A bright color that will get you noticed, red has been a fixture in some of the most iconic silhouettes. Puma’s Suede Classic — which is widely recognized as one of the best Puma models of all time —  Nike Air Jordan 1 and the Converse Chuck Taylor are just a few popular styles that look good dipped in red.

While neutrals like black and white might be your go-to when it comes to sneakers, adding a pair of red kicks can give your wardrobe a bold pop of color. It doesn’t hurt to mix up your ensemble and comfortable classics with a shoe that adds an edge and some flair to your style. Plus, red generally goes with most colors despite its vibrant appeal.

Red sneakers are perfect for a themed holiday like Valentine’s Day, and they’re wearable throughout the year. Although they may not be perfect for every occasion, red sneakers can instantly dress up a simple outfit and help you make a fashion statement on days when you want to stand out from the crowd.

There are a range of styles available, spanning from trainers to everyday street pairs. Ahead, some our favorite red sneakers for women, starting at just $40.
