For most of us, sneakers are an integral part of the wardrobe. They are simple in nature, comfortable to wear and stable to walk in. Actually, there is a strong belief that one is either a sneaker girl or a heels lady. Then there are those in between who also throw in a little bit of ballet flats, winter boots, wedges, sandals and what-have-you for when the mood permits.
Turns out we’re only concerned about sneakers, the most trusted pair of shoes when looking for reliable comfort to help out during Pilates, going for a long walk or just kicking it in a chilled-out-style on Sunday. Even for activities after work, one can always look trendy while upgrading to a level of comfort all ladies in heels silently envy – just by putting on a pair of sneakers.
As the trends change, it’s also necessary to evolve and metamorphize with the styles. In 2018, the dad sneaker took all attention just like the Velcro kicks. These are still available from the best websites for limited-edition sneakers. And now, there are new designs and brands in the pipelines that brands are fighting to have released asap.
We have seen the pre-fall 2019 collections and they are worth taking a look into. Here is a list of the top ten sneakers worth your time and attention this year.
Top 2019 Sneaker Trends
Exaggerated Soles—Alexander McQueen Leather Sneakers
Of course, our catchy opener must be top quality. Unparalleled and like none other. The exaggerated soles and solid leather top sneaker is from Italy. This Alexander McQueen leather sneaker fits true to size and there’s no need to worry about fitting, which is usually the case when purchasing online. The sneaker can fit with anything and is what you need for easy access to your outfits all throughout the year. Lovers of quality will dig their hands deep into their pockets for this pair but, it’s worth all the pennies.
Buckle Details—Zadig & Voltaire High Buckle Sneakers
The thousand and one buckles and attention to detail make it worth all the stares you get when wearing a pair. Drawing inspiration from the buckles all over the runways at the Sies Marjan, Alexander McQueen and Louis Vuitton boots and heels fashion show, these buckle sneakers are high cut and exude boss vibes. The Zadig & Voltaire pair is everything and more. They tend to be less chunky, edgy, but maintaining the zest of ultra-cool and fashionable. They are an excellent buy for stylish winter wear instead of the traditional snow boots. But, only consider making them your mains for winter if you have a car and won’t track the whole day.

Tie Dye – Pharrell x Adidas NHM Hu Trail
We all admire Pharrell Williams’ vampire blood vibes. The guy is over 40 but passes for a cool 25-year-old. And who better to bring us the tie-dye trend than the guy with the secret to youth? The tie-dye sneaker is a collaboration brought to us by Adidas with their ever-reliable comfort pads and Pharrell with his stylish mystery. The upper part of the sneaker draws inspiration from the Holi Festival’s traditional colors and the bottom is a solid white and purple. With the sneaker, you get to bring color to an otherwise blend look. Let summer be colorful. Buy your sneakers and get them delivered to your doorstep when you sign up for a US re-shipping service.

Return to Minimalism — Dr. Scholl's Scout Slip-On Sneaker

They are quite affordable, especially given that the insoles are made from memory fit foam and there is a flexible rubber outsole. They are quite sturdy without the overbearing strength to make walking uncomfortable. Excellent if you’re commuting and need to go lightweight, comfortable and sturdy.
