- 20 Things I learned in My 20s - July 27, 2023
Summer, you’ve been great, but it’s time to usher in my girl autumn, starting with some fall sneakers. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, or TikTok, you know I always share things that I love (shoes and sneakers especially). In an effort to keep track of the things that I’m eyeing in an organized and shareable way, I’ve decided to bring shopping lists (like this one) over to my blog. Behold—pairs of sneakers that I’d add to my wardrobe without dealing with the stress of the SNKRS App.
Converse Run Star Motion Hi , $120
Clearly, Converse is trying to show the gworls (girls that they aren’t basic. This new spin on the popularized skippy sneaker is equipped with a bit more intricate details on the sole that make them a true statement chunky high-top sneaker. They do give you a good amount of height and a little bounce in your walk—I just thought I should share that with you.
Converse is two for two from the free-throw line. This sneaker-boot hybrid is another one worthy of adding to your collection if OG Chucks just aren’t your vibe.

This is not a test—2022 is officially the new 2009, and the girls are spinning the block on Isabel Marant Wedge sneakers. The updated style of these sneakers comes in interesting color ways, and they have a nice chunky sole that makes them feel a bit more rough and rugged but still with a feminine touch.
Adidas Ozelia, $100
If you like the style of Yeezy Boost 700, meet Adidas Ozelia, They are a similar style but at a more affordable price point and, of course, more accessible.
Veja Venturi, $195

Veja may not be on many people’s radar, but you likely won’t be disappointed with the quality of these sneakers. They’re higher priced than your average sneaker brand, but the high-quality materials justify that. According to reviewers, this particular Veja style runs a bit small but is overall pretty comfy for wider feet, FYI.
Nike Air Max 1 ’87, $150
Of all the Nike Air Max sneakers to exist, Air Max 1s may be the least hyped but totally worth every penny. They are sleek af and they’re comfy (made for walking). This particular colorway is undeniably very fitting for the fall season.
Balenciaga Track Sneakers, $1050
The pandemic is slowly erasing the concept of seasonal colors, and this fall, we’re seeing people making statements in bold hues and metallics. If you’re a color enthusiast and willing to splurge on a sneaker, these Balenciaga Track sneakers in the grey multi-color way deserve a space in your collection.
The dad-style Rhyton sneakers from Gucci are a refreshing change from their crowd-pleasing skippy style kicks. Though this color/pattern-blocked style may not be appealing to everyone, the girls that get it, get it and will slay in these for fall seasons to come.
Nike Air Max Plus, CHECK SALE PRICE BELOW
Between the way lines reminiscent of flames, the Air cushioning, and reflective details, you’ll never get tired of having a pair of Air Max Plus in your closet. This colorway is, unfortunately, only available in the Big Kids size range. If you happen to fall within that bracket, grab them now and ask questions later.
Air Jordan Mocha, (Check below for resale prices)
I really tried to avoid putting resale-market sneakers on this list, but Air Jordan 1 Mocha just screams “fall.” These sneakers can go with damn near everything neutral in your closet but be careful because, at the price point, you don’t want to turn these into beaters. If you willing to splurge bump these to the top of your fall sneaker wishlist.
New Balance 574, $85
There’s something about the silhouette alone of New Balance 574s that meshes with the fall season so well, especially if you live in sweats (the stylish kind specifically). New Balance always makes some of the most comfortable sneakers if you want to live your best cozy life, these are some of the best fall sneakers for women (everyone really) that money can buy.
Asics Gel Cumulus 24, $130
I don’t think anyone foresaw Asics making a comeback in 2022, but the word on the street is if you want to get into the brand, starting with the Cumulus 24 sneakers is your best bet. Not only are they simple, but they’re also comfortable and will have you feeling like you’re walking on clouds and not cement.
