The IWTBH Fall Shoe Guide: Chic Sneakers



After finding this photo of Charlotte Gainsbourg looking super classic-cool in her menswear mix with those Parisian staples Stan Smiths, I looked around for some more chic kicks from sleek and simple to a little more fun.

Here’s a really lively pair of Vans that could make a simple suit or just plain jeans that much more exciting.Eileen Fisher’s simple white pair has an interesting lace situation that makes them perfect for dressier pants. And they’re now under $70.

These color block Pumas remind me of something that Pheobe Philo might wear with her classic pieces.

This Comme des Garçons + Nike collab is quietly cool.

Coach’s yellow-all-over sneakers provide a nice shot of sunny!

These Madewell guys have a slight retro feel without the irony.

The leather patches on this otherwise plain Everlane number gives it a little something without getting too sporty.

If a little bit of height is your jam, these simple suede Adidas are for you.

I love the Velcro straps and old-school red white and blue motif here.

Isabel Marant’s lightning bolt trainers have a glam-rock Bowie vibe.

  1. I love those Golas. Reminds me of something I would have bought for my son when he was little and wishing they came in my size.

  2. Help! I can’t figure out the sock situation when wearing sneakers, particularly with skinny jeans and/or white sneakers. I feel like it’s so nerdy to have socks sticking out but otherwise your ankles freeze!

  3. I’m in such a sneaker mood lately! I just ordered a pair of old-school gold suede New Balance – which will not be something I can wear in inclement weather AT ALL.

    I 2nd Kelly’s request for a sock/shoe/pants pairing post!
