The black Adidas Samba has been the trendy sneaker for the past few years. However, we prefer the fresh look of the white Adidas Samba lately. Don’t forget they also come in green or red stripes, in addition to the black. These shoes are so popular, they sell out quick! I recommend checking the website often for a restock.

Autry is a recently relaunched American heritage brand from the early 1980’s. Known for their well-made, super-comfortable and functional athletic footwear, the brand lay dormant after the death of its founder in the nineties. The made-in-America brand is hot again. And how hot is the Autry Medalist Low Top Embossed Leather style? Just look for the signature tiny American flag on all Autry styles!

Naturalizer is a brand almost always featured in our Fashionable, Comfortable Work Shoes blog. We are loving the new Morrison 2.0, a super sophisticated style of white lace-up sneaker. Don’t you think they look so much more expensive than $99?

New Balance

The New Balance 550s are not your dad’s New Balance sneakers. They are your chic Parisian friend’s New Balance sneakers. The 550s can sell out fast. I’m giving you the link to the brand site because they seem to have the best selection.

You might remember the all white Nike Airforce One sneaker from when they first became popular in the 80s and 90s. Nike Airforce Ones have become a classic style, and are still on trend today. Plus, the thick sole means ultimate comfort!

We have been selling the more technically advanced running sneakers from On to our clients for a number of years. My only complaint was not having the option of a more casual sneaker look for clients who wanted the ON comfort without the technical sneaker look. Enter The Roger! Problem solved. Um, thanks Roger Federer?
