With all this rain we’ve been getting in the city lately, it’s good to have a pair of comfortable sneakers to get around those puddles. When we say comfortable, we mean cute AF! Statement sneakers add some pop to your outfit and show off your personal style.
You need at least one pair of statement sneakers in your closet that defines your style. If you don’t have a pair, don’t worry; NYGal is here to help you decide which shoes to get. Here are some our favorite statement sneakers you need to be rocking this season.
Aldo Umoavia Aggressive Sneakers
Feeling a little wild this season? These animal print sneakers are great for a bold look. Pair it with your animal print signature jacket for the perfect combination. These sneakers will accompany your street style with a chunky sole and three different textures.
The color block design allows you to mix and match. Keep the red shoestrings for a pop of color, or switch them out for black or white ones to tone your look down a bit. No matter what outfit you choose, complete it with these statement sneakers.
Steve Madden Cliff Sneakers
You can’t have a shoe list without including Steve Madden. This brand is taking over NYC. The cliff style actually has twelve different designs. All of them include complementing colors to bring out your colorful side. This sneaker also plays around with animal print and chunky soles.
We love the orange and navy design for fall. The colors are subtle and provide just the right amount of pop with a light blue accent. Spring is over, but it doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to color.
Ted Baker Sporty Strap Detail Blush Suede Sneakers
How cute are these sneakers? If you have a more feminine style, these sneakers are the best ones to make a statement. They have a floral-printed lining that still work for every season. Floral styles aren’t just reserved for spring.
We love the grosgrain bow in the middle of the shoe. Gold complements the blush palette and pairs well with a white lacy shirt and jeans. Simple looks are best when it comes it these sneakers.
Vans For Opening Ceremony Glitter OG Old Skool LX Sneakers
Every NYGal needs to sparkle every once in a while, and these are the shoes that you need to make it happen. Some would say that glitter on your shoes screams preschool, but we say otherwise. Vans does an excellent job at making this glitter shoe look tasteful. We totally support a monochromatic look with this vibrant sea blue.
Women’s Nike Air Max 97 Ultra ‘17 SE
Nike has been the topic of a lot of criticism lately, but you have to admit that they do make awesome shoes. The Nike Air Max shoes are still very popular and running out of stock fast. This shoe comes in multiple styles to choose from, so there’s something for everyone.
Our favorite style is the red, white, and black design. It has a subtle but bold look. You don’t have to sport bright, vibrant shoes to make a statement.
