As POPSUGAR editors, we independently select and write about stuff we love and think you’ll like too. If you buy a product we have recommended, we may receive affiliate commission, which in turn supports our work.
Being comfortable never goes out of style, so investing in a top-tier sneaker collection is always a smart idea. When it comes to picking out cool and on-trend shoes that are worthy of purchase, we look for a few key elements: good design, quality materials, and the perfect fit — because who wants to be uncomfortable?
It’s no secret our editors test out hundreds of shoes to provide you with the best product recommendations. Love some casual, everyday kicks? We’ve got you. Prefer something sportier and performance based? We found those, too. And of course, if you’re looking for cute sneaks that you can dress up for work, we’ve tried them.
To help you find the best sneakers for yourself, we enlisted our editors to choose the stylish designs they’re longing for in 2022. Whether you want something cheeky and playful or sleek and modern, we’ve uncovered the best of the best. Our editors will tell you why they love these sneakers, so you’ll have plenty to mull over.
