If you haven’t hopped the athleisure sneaker bandwagon yet, climb aboard–the trend shows no sign of fading. Comfortable fashion sneakers offer a smart and refined solution to gym shoes (and some are even office-appropriate). We at Barking Dog Shoes fully support dressed-up sneakers to flimsy flats any day! See six of our favorites for finicky feet:
A crisp white sneaker pairs with everything from denim to flowy skirts, especially if you’re headed to Europe and want your feet to blend in with the sea of classic neutral sneakers. The Alameda Lace scores high for quality, good fit and moderate support. Find it in sizes 5-12 for $109.95 from Zappos, Ugg.com, and Shoemall.
Take it from a recent Zappos customer, the Ecco Soft 7 is a wonderful sneaker, “Why I love these: (a) I am narrow in the heel, wider in front and use an orthotic – these fit perfectly, (b) took them to Paris and walked 10 miles a day in them, and (c) color and style. I am a true 9 (usually AA, or 39 1/2 European size) and bought size 40– they fit perfectly (with orthotic and a thin sock or ped).” The Ecco Soft 7 features a removable cushioned insole with moderate arch support and a foot-friendly shape (room for bunions, but snug fit at heel to eliminate slippage. Find the Ecco Soft 7 in euro sizes 35-43 for $104-150 from Zappos, and Nordstrom.
Ara specializes in good-fit footwear (generous toe box, narrower heel), and the Camden sneaker is no exception. We love its street-chic vibe and comfort features like soft bamboo terry linings, removable insole and extra padding at the ball of foot. Find the Ara Camden in sizes 6-11 for $149.95 from Nordstrom, and Walking Co.
Birdies version of the fashion sneaker features the same multi-layer (and removable) cushioned insole that graces their elegant flats plus a slightly elevated heel. We recommend the Birdies Cardinal for narrow to medium feet. Available in sizes 5-12 for $95 from Birdies.com, Zappos and Nordstrom.
These comfortable fashion sneakers check all the boxes: generous toe box, excellent arch, heel and metatarsal support, removable footbed to accommodate some orthotics, fabulous reviews for comfort and fit. The Taos Shooting star is available in sizes 6-11 for $110 from TaosFootwear.com, Zappos and Amazon.
You know as well as I do the challenge as finding a stylish lifestyle sneaker in extra wide widths–the selection is sparse. You’re in luck with the Propet Kinzey, I’m happy to say! Generous toe box with removable insole. Find the Propet Kinzey in sizes 6-12, medium to extra-wide widths for $89 from Amazon, Nordstrom, and Zappos.
