Sneakers, Kicks, Gym Shoes, Tennis Shoes et al will be the shoe du jour on every fashionistas wishlist this fall. Over the past year we’ve seen the insurgence of the wedge sneaker, Isabel Marant, Nike and Adidas anyone? But this season, we kick into high gear with designers adding stylish sneakers, whether they be slip-ons or high-tops, to their already fierce fashion collections.

Being a sneakerhead myself – I was the girl with a new pair of Jordans on every week – I’ve always incorporated kicks into my wardrobe. I’m a true tomboy at heart so this paradigm shift is much appreciated.

The fun thing is, you can pair your chic sneaks with skirts, dresses, stovepipe pants or however you like, just don’t be left in the dust! With that said, check out my top picks for the season. I promise you’ll be ready to hit the pavement as if your name was Jackie Joyner Kersee!


Maison Martin Margiela Mirror Sneakers – make a lasting impression and step out in style!


Gotta love Miu Miu. These slip-ons are top on my list. They come in a myriad of styles ranging from studds to printed patent leather.


Giuseppe Zanotti Design. Sheer perfection. The gold buckles, the side clasp, the zippers it doesn’t get any better than this when it comes to detail. I’d rock these with leather pants and a white tshirt.


Nike High-tops. Classic, simple and chic – check. The clean lines and solid color make these safe to play around with. I’d be daring and rock ’em to a black-tie affair and let these babies peak out from underneath a fabulous ballgown.


Balenciaga Alligator print sneakers are great for work and play. Pair with a pencil skirt and crop top or Canadian Tuxedo to stand out.


Riccardo Tisci Nike. Not new for fall and on every fashionista list and probably already in their closets are these. All I can say is, I need ’em, I want ’em, I gotta have ’em!

Happy shoepping gyals and as always click the images to purchase!
