Sarah requested a few picks for stylish, comfy spring sneakers so here we go:
New Balance WL555 Only Casual – was $67.95, now $36.19 – $67.95
New Balance may be known best for running shoes, but their fashion sneakers are well worth checking out. Reviewers adore this style – the phrase “walking on air” is used multiple times – and the sleek, low-profile design is very modern. Available in this red as well as gray, cream, black, chambray, steel blue, navy, and black/gold in U.S. sizes 5 – 12, including C/D widths. Size availability varies by color.
Geox Modesty27 – was $155, now $49.58 – $154.95
Slip-ons – especially leopard/animal print ones – are quite trendy right now. My own pair is Steve Madden and though I love them they’re not super comfortable. But Geox is a renowned comfort brand, and this pair is designed with comfort in mind. A reviewer warns that this style won’t suit a high instep, so be aware. Available in this leopard as well as a black/white animal print in U.S. sizes 5 – 10.5. Size availability varies by color. Couldn’t find an exact match, but Vans’ slip-ons come in wide widths.
Vans Old Skool Skate Shoe – was $55, now $30.22 – $47.24
Speaking of Vans, I wanted to include these because I was floored to find out that the company makes their classic styles in a HUGE variety of sizes and widths. This shoe is unisex, so women with size 15 feet can pick up a pair, and most colors/prints are available in C/D widths. That said, the Old Skool gets mixed reviews on comfort so if you have fussy feet maybe not the best choice. Though they appear to have a roomy interior and might be able to accommodate an orthotic. Available in this blue as well as red, black, gray, polka dots, floral, and more than 20 other colors in U.S. sizes 5 – 15.5 including C/D widths. Size availability varies by color.
Puma 76 Runner – was $80, now $29.99 – $79.95
I’m a huge fan of all things Puma, and this pair features a soft EVA midsole for added comfort. Modeled after soccer shoes, they’ve got a versatile, streamlined design. Available in this black/pink as well as gray/blue or gray/coral in U.S. sizes 5.5 – 11. Size availability varies by color. This similar style is available in D widths.
Sustainable resources for stylish, comfy spring sneakers:
- Zady – Super stylish sustainable pairs.
- Oliberte – More along the oxford lines, it’s true, but great colors for spring!
- New Balance – 22 pairs made in the U.S., and many of them SUPER cute. This pair is customizable, too.
- ECCO – Comfy, cute, and the new designs for spring are very modern. This simple leather pair is calling to me.
- Wonders – Quick shout-out for this funky fixed-lace pair.
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for stylish, comfy spring sneakers:
- Teva – Fun and funky designs made with comfort in mind. Love these contrast-lace perforated sneaks.
- Josef Siebel – A pair of JS kicks has been on my list for ages. I’m partial to this metallic pair.
- Keen – The comfiest. And includes this fab Superga lookalike.
- Supra – Incredibly stylish, and in widths for larger foot sizes. (Higher points for style than comfort, admittedly.)
