Who doesn’t love a good pair of neutral shoes? I know I do.
Take a look inside my closet for my neutral, everyday sneaker collection…
Vans Old Skool | Revolve, $60
I love these. They’re classic, and I feel like they go with so many things. They’re cute and slightly edgy. My friend’s boot heel broke last summer and I had these in my car, we met on our lunch break and she borrowed them and I haven’t gotten them back since. It’s hilarious, and I hope she wears them from time to time, but they’re like the magic sisterhood-of-the-traveling shoes.
Vans Slip-On Black Leather | Revolve, $60
I’ve gotten compliments on these so many times, and I think it’s just because you don’t see these that often. I remember they used to be all over the place YEARS ago, but I really love these. They go with a lot of things, and comfy to wear. Only thing I don’t like is that if you don’t wear socks with these your feet will be 1000 degrees and you’ll feel like you might be getting athlete’s foot. Wear your lowest of low socks and you should be good. Would not recommend wearing these to Disney or anything like that, like I said, too, too hot.
FILA Disruptors Stretch | Finish Line, $90
I got my pair of these for Coachella, and I’m so glad I did. Yes, they’re Balenciaga knock offs. Yes, they’re chonky as hell. Yes, they’re so comfortable. Yes, I love them. They’re comfy as hell, they are breathable, and have a bunch of support. Definition of Disney shoes honestly.
I got mine at Urban Outfitters, but they’re actually on sale at Finish Line right now (can’t find them at UO anymore). I love wearing these with joggers, or high-waisted jeans with kind of cropped, frayed hem. I’ll wear it with an athletic looking zip. I love my NFL Nike 1/2 zip. I feel like a badass boxer or something.
Nike Air Max 90 | Urban Outfitter, $90-120
I cannot find these for sale anywhere, and I can’t remember exactly how much I spent on them, but there are SO many colorways of Air Max so you’ll have a good time looking for the ones that you like.
I really like these for street style type of outfits (which is kinda what all my outfits are). I also feel like these look better on than you think they look. I alwasy feel like they’re too chunky and bulky, but I’ve gotten multiple compliments on these as well. Air Max 90s are everywhere so I’m sure you can find them anywhere.
Converse Renew Hi-Tops | Nordstrom, $?
To be honest, I can’t remember how much I paid for these. I saw @everydaypursuits say they were great so I bought them as I was getting ready for work, and then forgot I bought them. I will say though, they are awesome, they feel like they have extra padding in the bottom. I might be crazy, but they’re comfier than normal converse. The hi-tops are apparently hard to find now, but here’s the hi-tops. I also linked the lo-tops if you’re interested in those.
Yeezy Sesame | Yeezy Supply, $220
Now, if you refer to my Are Yeezy‘s Worth The Buy? post then you know I have a lot of Yeezy’s in my house. They’re hard to get though, and you need to sign up for all the alerts in order to get them. My boyfriend got these Sesames for me on Yeezy day (which is basically an all-day launch, shoe after shoe, and completely bonkers). They’re my favorite Yeezys, and I love, love, love them. They go with everything… besides Nike stuff because obviously.
The sizing for Yeezy’s is a little different, check out my post for tips on finding your size.
Yeezy Lundmark Non-Reflective | Yeezy Supply, $220
I actually missed out on the Static launch, and told myself that I was going to get the Lundmarks, and I did! I got through, and purchased right away. The first day I wore them someone, who was on the phone at the time, stopped min-sentence and said, “How did you get those?!” I knew I wanted a pair of Yeezy’s that had the mesh on the front and I knew I wanted something neutral because… we’ll it’s me. I really love these, they’re looser than the others, but so great.
Yeezy Zebra | Yeezy Supply, $220
My boyfriend got these for me as well, and I had been eyeing these forever. Actually, when the first pair of Yeezy’s came out back in like… late 2015? They we’re the turtle doves I think and I remember looking at outfits on Pinterest wanting them so bad. Then the 350 v2s came out, and the most similar ones were the Zebras that came out in early 2017. I loved them so much, but they were so hard to get and sold for WAY too much for resale. Finally got them, have only worn them 2-3x, but they have a special place in my heart.
The fun part about Yeezy’s are the exclusivity of them, it’s like a collectors game, like the Pokemon cards of shoes (I mean, resell sites even offer trades sooo). They’re unisex, fun to collect, fun to follow, and finally getting the ones you want makes you feel like you’ve won something. Kanye is kinda a genius.
This was a really fun post to write, I linked the sneakers I could. If it’s not linked it means you need to find it through a reseller, but I’m sure you can find similar ones if you google!
I’ll have to do my sneaker wishlist for another post. What’s in your sneaker collection?!
