most loved everyday sneakers


If you’ve been following me for 5 minutes or longer…you know my sneaker obsession is REAL. This was true before I even had Shiloh but now that I am a mom, the obsession has gotten even stronger haha. I’ve grown quite the sneaker collection over the last few years so today I wanted to round up / review the sneakers I wear the most & share why I love them. Some of y’all know I did a closet sale in Boulder before we moved and got rid of a TON of stuff. These were the sneakers I absolutely couldn’t part with!


veja velcro metallic sneakers

These sneakers were on my Christmas list last year and my MIL got them for me! I LOVE them so much. I got my first pair of Vejas a few years ago (you’ll see my OGs below) and wore them constantly so I knew I wanted a second pair, and I like that the velcro is different than what I have. I think the 3 velcro sneakers make these look really cute and modern and sleek. I also like the gold on them because I think it makes them look a little more springy. I’ve found Vejas to run TTS. These shoes are comfortable but not quite as comfortable as the V-10s (which I’m sharing below). They are good for a moderate amount of walking but if I was taking a trip to Europe or something where you’re walking all day everyday, I probably wouldn’t wear these. I like wearing them on a day-to-day basis – running errands, grocery store, mall, etc as well as with any cute fashion outfit! They look so cute with jeans or dresses!

veja v-10 leather sneakers

These were my first pair of Vejas and they’re still in my top 2 or 3 favorite sneakers of all time. They did take a few wears to break in but after that, I find them to be extremely comfortable. I wore them to France and walked all over Paris in them and my feet felt great! I LOVE how these look with jeans or leggings and that you can wear them year round. They’re adorable with skinny jeans or boyfriend jeans and have such a classic + timeless look to them. I find Vejas to run true to size. I like to wear the no-show socks with them that I talked about in this blog post.

golden goose mid star sneakers

You guys know how obsessed I am with my golden goose sneakers. I got my first pair probably two years ago and have been HOOKED ever sense. They are hands down the most comfortable “everyday” (ie not athletic) shoe that I own. I’ve worn these all over Europe, walked for hours and hours in them and my feet never hurt. So the comfort level is amazing but I also love the look of them – they elevate any basic outfit and they work with everything from leggings to jeans to dresses. I recently branched out and got a pair of the “mid star” golden goose sneakers – they have their original superstar style (the first pair I got), a high top, and midstar. High tops felt a little too “out there” for me haha so I liked that mid stars were a good in between – different than what I already had but not too crazy! And I LOVE them so much! They are just as comfortable as my original superstar pair but I think they’re so fun and really take any basic outfit to the next level! They make a statement while still being a good neutral, and again, so comfortable.

I wear a size 8 in shoes and wear a size 38 in golden goose! I also love golden goose because I typically don’t ever wear socks with them! My feet don’t get sweaty, they don’t stink, and they don’t hurt without socks. I love that about them.

golden goose superstar sneakers

These were my first pair of golden goose sneakers and still my most worn pair! Everything I mentioned above about why I love golden goose applies to these as well – the comfort, the style…make them worth every penny. I’ve had these for over 2 years now, worn them hundreds of times, and they are still in perfect condition. If you’ve been on the fence on whether or not golden goose are worth it…IMO they are worth EVERY penny. I’ve ended up buying multiple pair because I wear mine so dang often! If you have more questions, head on over to the full review I did on these kicks.

adidas sleek sneakers

If you DON’T feel like splurging on golden goose (totally get it), I think these white adidas sneakers are a really good alternative for under $100! I love the all white because they go with everything, they have a little bit of a platform without being too much, and they are SO comfortable. I found these to run big – I went down a half size and would recommend doing that!

new balance fresh foam sneakers

These sneakers have been a top selling product for me for two YEARS in a row now and are still one of my most worn pair of tennis shoes, hands down. First of all, they are $69 and the quality is a 10 on a 10! I’ve had my pair for two years, worn them countless times, and they still look and feel brand new. When I had my closet sale in Boulder and got to meet so many of you guys. I legit saw at least 30 of you wearing these shoes and I get tagged in stories almost daily if y’all wearing them haha I LOVE it! These sneakers are so comfortable, I love the all black with a little pop of tan on them, they go with everything, and look really chic and athletic at the same time IMO. One of my all time best purchases and I’m tempted to buy a second pair just in case they ever discontinue them haha. I’ve gone for short runs in these, wear them on my daily walks with Shiloh, running errands, traveling etc! I found them to run TTS.

There ya go! The 6 pair of casual sneakers I wear more than any other pair! I’ll also be doing an updated post soon on my favorite athletic sneakers so stay tuned for that.

Thanks for reading!
