If you value comfort above all else, we have good news: the sneaker trend isn’t going anywhere this year. The trending look for sneakers for women in 2020? Think retro-inspired shapes in saturated hues from storied footwear brands, like Nike’s ultra-bright Air Max 200. However, there's something for all aesthetics—if primaries are more your MO, try RE/DONE's 70s Runner sneakers, or for a more subtle take on the trend, consider Adidas' ZX Torsion sneakers in shades of navy and grey. No matter your style, it's incredibly clear that sneakers for women have moved far beyond their athletic origins and remain a foolproof style choice for this year and beyond.

For those wanting a look that leans more chic than street, stick with classic low-tops that can take you from errands to the office faster than you can say “new year, new me.” If you are feeling a bit bold, why not add a pop of fun prints with Gucci's Rhyton sneakers? A printed sneaker can still be a neutral, after all. Check out these 13 chic sneakers for women to add to latest shoe collection and spend 2020 in both style and comfort.

Onitsuka Tiger

If this sneaker doesn't already look trendy enough for you, Onitsuka Tiger also recently teamed up with one of Hollywood's coolest young star Willow Smith for their Autumn/Winter 2020 campaign. This Japanese brand's mastery in colorful patchworked infused with streetwear's favored nylon material is aesthetically displayed in this unisex sneaker.

Saint Laurent's Court Classic sneakers are a perfect introduction to French girl style. These sneakers ooze the French sensibility we’ve come to expect from the legendary fashion house, and are a perfect addition to any outfit.

LA cult brand RE/DONE is known for their denim, but they've proven to be equally adept at creating a cool retro-styled sneaker. True to their namesake, the 70s Runner sneakers reinvent the classic nylon running styles from the era, making all 60s and 70s babies nostalgic for the iconic disco decade.

Chucks are universally beloved for a reason, and even die-hard fans of Converse’s classic style can appreciate this retro-inspired update. Though the Chuck 70 is based on the brand’s 1970s design, the result is incredibly modern. While the style comes in every shade under the sun, we love the classic black version.

Calling all Gucci fans: these sneakers are for you. Inspired by vintage sportswear, the chunky rubber sole adds height while the iconic GG logo within a red apple print make these sneakers anything but boring. Show them off by pairing with cropped trousers.

Adidas ZX Torsion

The '80s are back, baby, and while there’s no need to run out for a leotard and leg warmers just yet, adding these mesh and suede kicks to your morning workouts might be all you need to get yourself into the groove.

Everyone needs a pair of all-white sneakers, and the VEJA V-10s tick all the boxes. Rendered in a silhouette that will never go out of style, this wear-everywhere pair is also made from fair-trade materials. Bonus: they look even better all beat up.

Nike Air Max 1

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Released in 1987, Nike’s Air Max 1 was the first sneaker with a window exposing the Air cushioning. The style is just as wearable today, and this pair in leather and suede features modern pops of blue and orange.

Crafted from supple calfskin, this minimal pair from PS821 will easily become one of your everyday staples. The brand also donates a portion of the purchase price to a charity of your choice, so it’s a buy you can feel good about.
