I’m going to let you in on a not-so-secret tip of mine: Not all sneakers are created equal, but there are sneakers for just about every occasion from cute and casual to the classics, and even splurge-worthy. Sneakers are a major part of my mom uniform.
The Best Sneakers For Any Occasion
After years of training and mom-ing, here are my favorite Heidi-approved styles this season. Out with the old and in with the new—a girl can never have too many sneakers!
1. Cute + Casual Sneaker: Vans High-Tops
When it comes to fashion—as unglamorous as it sounds—function is everything. That’s a bit ironic considering that before I became a mom, I swore I would never use that dreaded f word (function, of course!). Four kids and two knee surgeries later, plus a rigorous schedule, comfort and function top the list, but that doesn’t mean letting go of that cute factor. My favorite Vans check the box. With the added pop of color, you can take these from carpool to date night, making these shoes a closet go-to. They even come in blush!
2. All Around Sneaker: Reebok Classics
For someone who doesn’t shop often, the best part of a classic sneaker is they are always in style. The added bonus: You likely already know your size, so you can order a new pair online in a pinch when you’re in need of a new pair of classic kicks.
You guys know my love affair with my Reebok collection is real. What can I say? Sometime when it’s meant to be, you just know. Wanting to spice up your vibe from classic to edgy? These Reeboks also come in my absolute favorite finish: Chrome. Perfect for adding a little touch of sparkle to your everyday black leggings.
3. Workout Sneaker: Reebok Fusion Flexweave
Don’t forget to add a good pair of gym sneakers to your list! But just because you happen to need a pair of shoes that actually help when it comes to lifting weights and crushing your cardio goals doesn’t mean they can’t also be cute! These Reebok Fusion Flexweave are the perfect pair for adding stability to your workout while still maintaining that B.A look that lets the other gym-goers know you mean business.
4. Splurge Worthy Sneaker: Veja
Before you say anything, let me just gush on these sneakers for a minute. Not only are they SUPER cute and comfy, but the price is doable when you know that what’s on your feet is sustainable and created with eco-friendly production efforts. Ok, now off my soap box.
These shoes are super low maintenance but look so good. They also come in blush. It’s a staple we all need in our closets, especially for those days when you have nothing to wear or want to look cute but don’t feel like getting dressed up. If you can afford these beauties, they have the Heidi Splurge-Worthy Seal of Approval (which isn’t a thing, but now it is!). Bonus: You can sometimes catch Vejas on sale for under $70, like this navy version.
You wouldn’t wear stilettos to the gym or to chase your kiddos around, right? All shoes are not created equal or meant to be a one-activity-fits-all style. With endless options to choose from—thank you, online shopping—it’s easy to get bogged down with styles, sizing, and everything else that goes into shoe shopping. #thestruggle
