Tips for Buying Everyday Sneakers

Sneakers are a big part of our wardrobe (if you haven’t noticed by now lol) and we love taking advantage of the fact that you can wear them with anything and everything. But the process of finding the right pair for everyday and any occasion can be daunting. Fit and quality aside, it’s also important for us to have shoes that look stylish. Having gone through so many sneakers up to this point, we wanted to share some of our tips for picking the perfect everyday sneaker – and our favorite style.

1. Comfort

When buying a pair of shoes you know you’ll wear for long periods at a time, comfort is our top priority. You can’t go wrong with the Cole Haan Generation ZERØGRAND sneakers for casual comfort. They’re lightweight, well-cushioned, and require no break-in period allowing for all-day movement without stiffness or sore toes. Their flexibility also make them a perfect travel option.

2. Durability

We also prefer to invest in sneakers that won’t fall apart quickly. The high-quality fabric on the ZERØGRAND sneakers has held up incredibly well for us. Despite the multiple wears we’ve gone through, we just know these shoes were made to last.

3. Versatility

We’re all for trainers we can wear with multiple looks. The ZERØGRAND sneakers are an obvious pick to pair with leggings (like Brooke did), but you can also style them with skirts, or jeans and a tee (like Meggan) for an outfit that’s on-trend and cool. Whether you’re dropping the kids off at school or going out for lunch with your girlfriends, you can’t go wrong with these. They look great with any combo.

4. Design

Another factor we consider when buying everyday sneakers is how it fits into our aesthetic. The understated design on the ZERØGRAND sneakers is everything – and it comes in several different colors, making it easy for anyone to incorporate them to their wardrobe. We have them in leopard (obsessed!), blush, and white but also love the beige and mint colors!

For only $130, the ZERØGRAND sneakers tick off all the boxes we require in everyday shoes. They also induce style without compromising comfort and offer the right aesthetic that goes beyond athleisure wear. Be sure to order 1/2 size smaller than you normally do, as these sneakers run big!
