On the hunt for the best sneakers to add to your collection? See the Booty Shoes roundup of 2023 sneaker trends that we think are here to stay.
#1. Best Sneakers: Classic low-cut
The classic low-cut sneaker is a wardrobe staple that never goes out of style, and it’s safe to say it will remain on top of our best sneaker list well beyond 2023. Loved by royals and celebrities alike, this understated sneaker design is versatile and perennially chic. Its ankle-skimming silhouette is flattering on almost everyone, whether worn with jeans, tailored pants or dresses.
The latest twist on this classic sneaker features interesting textures and subtle patterns, like L'ecologica's black & white Soft Crackle Finish Sneakers, Woven Black Low Cut Sneaker, and White Weave Zip Sneaker. These are more exciting to wear than plain black or white, yet subdued enough to be versatile, standout pieces.
#2. Best metallic accent sneakers
Metallics make the classic sneaker exciting again! Full metallic is still cool, but sneakers with a metallic accent panel are the best sneakers to update your style in 2023.
Adding metallic accents to sneakers makes them suited to more elegant occasions as well as casual wear. Take for example the L'ecologica Silver Sneaker, the Zoe Gold & Canvas Sneaker or the P448 Bambi Sneaker with pearlised metallic tongue. Find the right luxe outfit to go with these gorgeous sneakers and you’ve won cocktail hour!
#3. Best overlay athletic sneakers
When it comes to sneakers you can actually exercise in, a pair of designer overlay sneakers will make sure you look as good on a run as you do when socialising. To amp up the traditional athletic sneaker look, designers are mixing colours, shapes and materials like suede, snakeskin and mesh to make eye-catching sporty sneakers.
AS98 is making some of the coolest and best sneakers in this style, like their low rise sneakers in Ivory & Silver Foil. The Popa Sneaker features five neutral colours that are great for matching with sporty outfits. For the perfect combination of sporty and modern, try the Lilimill Sneaker with a splash of bright orange.
#4. Best hightop sneakers
High-top sneakers are perfect for an effortlessly cool, laid-back look. When paired with tonal tailoring or same-colour pants, the look is especially flattering and leg-lengthening. Add an edge to black outfits with the L’ecologica Faux Crocodile Hightop, go classy and chic with P448's prism sneaker, or get cosy Lilimil fur-lined high top sneaker, three of the best high-tops around for comfort and elegance.
#5. Best platform sneakers
Still liking platform sneakers? So do we, and we’re seeing the trend continue. Platform sneakers are an easy and comfortable way to elevate your look (literally!). For 2023, the trend is evolving to classy, dressier styles in white leathers and warm neutrals, like the Arche Comedy boot and Laura Bellariva's Nude Platform Sneaker which will dress up any outfit.
Sneakers like the gorgeous L’ecologica Chocolate Platform Sneaker are great for the colder months teamed with darker hues.
How to choose the best sneakers
When it comes to choosing the best sneakers, start with these three must-haves. The first is a low-cut white sneaker that can be worn all year round, no matter the season, with nearly everything. Your second pair should be a go-to everyday sneaker in black, grey or neutral tones, depending on your wardrobe. For your third, choose a designer sneaker that makes a fashion statement - chunky, colourful, sequined or animal print, whatever your style.
When shopping for sneakers, visualise your existing wardrobe, what you’d wear with them and what will be most versatile.
