STYLE | 10 Best Women's Sneakers You Need In Your Collection For 2017
Here's a semi-relevant fact:
Today, there are tons of beautiful sneakers made exclusively for women.
In this blog post, we are going to list out the 10 best women's sneakers you need in your collection for 2017 (and forever, perhaps)
Sneaker culture was once a battle of ego amongst hypebeasts; a group of fashion enthusiasts who lived and breathed streetwear.
Jordans, Yeezy's, NMD's. All of these sneaker collections have become so integrated into our culture over the past few years that no one actually calls sneakers "sneakers" anymore.
7-8 years back, sneaker fanatics were primarily men. You'd be hard pressed to find sneakers made for women that were on par with their male counterparts.
In regard to the semi-relevant fact, that alone shows you how sneaker culture has changed and evolved over time.
Without further ado, let's move on to the first entry in our list.
Nike Women's Air VaporMax Triple White
In collaboration with the most successful Nike Air Max Day since the sportswear mammoth's existence, Nike released the stunning Nike Air VaporMax to much fanfare.
The VaporMax family of Nike shoes were constructed with Flyknit technology - something that Nike has been pushing heavily with their newer models.
Just a few days ago, they announced the release of the Triple White VaporMax, a women's only variant.

The Nike Air Force 1 has been going strong for decades, with plenty of variants including the Philly Air Force 1, or the extremely rare UNDFTD x Nike model.
The queen of all the models however is the OG all-white Air Force 1. Available for both men and women, the crispy clean kicks have been a favourite among female sneaker lovers.
Despite being a little bulky, the Air Force 1 like the Superstar are always on point; regardless of fashion trends and time periods.

Moving away from the cookie-cutter black and white shoes, the Air Max Thea is a guaranteed head-turner.
With a subtle purple tint all over the shoe, the Air Max Thea delivers the two things that most people want from a shoe: style and comfort.
Despite being constantly outshone by its white and black Air Max counterparts, the shoe is still more than worth it for the quality.

The ubiquitous Stan Smith models of Adidas sneakers have gotten a bit of a bad rep due to it virtually being seen everywhere.
There's a reason why there are so many Stan Smith's on the streets though; they look great and feel great.
Made with the highest of quality featuring a tumbled leather upper, the Stan Smith is a wise choice if you are looking for your first pair of sneakers.
What's good: Is durable enough to function as a makeshift tennis shoe, premium tumbled leather finish oozes exquisiteness into your outfits, very comfortable and will easily become one of your staples.

New Balance has seen a much-needed resurgence after many years of being seen as the lesser alternative to giant sneaker brands.
With the trademarked "N" logo on the side of the shoes, the latest addition to the New Balance family, the 247 is extremely comfortable on your feet - something that is consistent across every New Balance shoe.
The sole is made out of New Balance's REVLite sole technology which was engineered to give maximum comfort even after long periods of wear.
What's good: Cushioned sole makes the already comfortable shoe even better, pink silhouette goes well with current minimalist fashion trends, can be doubled up as a work out or running shoe.
Price: $119.95 AUD
Reebok makes their entry into the list with a daring mint green selection.
The classic Reebok kicks is made from premium leather while the insides of the shoe is very gentle and forgiving to the feet.
The colorway may seem a little bold at first glance, but the shoes actually look stunning in real life. A mixture of vibrant clothing paired with this shoe will definitely have your friends and family blown away.

Designed with the 90's athletic era in mind, this throwback Adidas shoe is very, very versatile despite being a little pricier compared to other sneakers.
It doesn't just look great for casual wear, the EQT's are also very good for athletic activities. The sole allows for extra bounciness and comfort while running which reduces the strain your knees and ankles.
Speaking of the sole, the overall design of the upper and insides of the shoe is made to fit your feet snugly. Comfort-wise, fantastic.

The last entry in our list would be none other than the beloved Vans Sk8-Hi's.
While the Old Skool model that we covered earlier was technically the essential Vans shoe, the Sk8-Hi's we feel are definitely on that very same level.
Sporting a cozy speckled light blue marle hue, the Sk8-Hi's are great when matched with ripped jeans which were in trend partly due to Jerry Lorenzo's ingenuity in the fashion industry.
What's good: Rugged fashion-wise and durability-wise too, fits very comfortably, better price point when compared to other high-tops which look just as good as the Sk8-Hi's.
Price: $129.95 AUD
