Women’s sneakers: The perfect buyer’s guide

We want to set you up with the perfect trending sneakers and athletic shoes. Check out this buyer’s guide for helpful hints on what to look for in a sneaker to pinpoint a durable yet comfortable option. 

Also, let’s be honest: sneakers are totally in. People love platform sneakers, high top sneakers, low top sneakers, and fashion sneakers. We’re all feeling pretty active these days, and a good pair of sneakers can keep you feeling good, whether you’re hanging out at home or hustling on the job. 

Sneakers can be high fashion, or they can be your go-to for chilling in the park. It’s important to note, too, that there are many varieties of sneakers, including training shoes, basketball shoes, hiking shoes, and running shoes.

When you’re considering choosing a sneaker, the very first decision should be based on your lifestyle and what activities you plan to be strutting these hot new shoes through. In this guide, we’ll highlight the differences between sneaker styles and point you in the right direction.

Profiles of sneaker styles

  • Shaft length: We’re talking about the low top versus the high top. You can also totally shoot for a mid-rise top as well. Depending on how much ankle support you desire and what look you’re shooting for, there are plenty of options for you to choose from.
  • Foot support: Sneakers can range from being super supportive to being totally flat. They can be made from a variety of materials, including canvas, leather, mesh, knit, or denim. Any shoe you can imagine probably exists already.
  • Running shoes vs. trainers: Running shoes and trainers are two pairs of sneakers with two totally different mindsets. Running shoes can vary depending on what environment you plan on running through; trainers are designed for support in multilateral directions. Always pay attention to the traction pattern on the bottoms to select a shoe that is designed for your needs
  • How you get your sneakers on: Not only are there different styles of sneakers, but there are also different ways to put sneakers on and secure them on your feet. Sneakers can have laces, velcro, or can be slip-on. 
  • Shoes for everyone: Sneakers are for everybody. You’ll see celebrities wearing kicks as well as everybody else. World leaders on the weekends—sneakers. 

We love that universality about them. It’s also why we wanted to make our sneakers more accessible.

Women’s Madrid

Plus, we combined all of the great ideas of Kiziks with the necessity of creating an eco-friendly design, meaning that part of the composition of the Madrid Eco-Knit is recycled plastic water bottles. One reviewer commented that they wear their eco-knits every single day! 


Choosing the right pair of sneakers is crucial for your comfort and convenience. It is of the utmost importance to understand what style you need to add to your wardrobe while also being keen on what to look for while shopping. If you are trying on shoes, make sure there is always plenty of room in the toe box and that your heels are not slipping in and out of the heel!
