How are women’s sneakers supposed to fit?

Sizing is important for all types of sneakers, as they’re made for continuous movement and all-day wearability. Ill-fitting sneakers can cause foot problems and a lot of pain. To avoid that, there are a few tips to keep in mind. Properly fitting sneakers will: 

  • Fit snuggly but not too tight
  • Provide wiggle room for your toes
  • Have footbeds that are between 0.5 and 0.65 inches longer than your foot
  • Not push into your toenails
  • Cup your heel comfortably
  • Not slip around your heel and be broad enough to accommodate the width of your foot

Keep in mind that running shoes that are too large (more than a size larger) can cause foot problems. To avoid this issue, many runners opt for half-size larger, at most, than they normally do. 

How to style chunky sneakers & hi-tops

Chunky, retro-looking sneakers and loose jeans are a great combo! It’s essential to expose the amazing, futuristic shoe design (the shoe is the statement). Wear your chunky shoes with light wash jeans, a fitted tee and a slim belt for a summery look. They’re a playful addition to your wardrobe. They can be worn during spring, summer and even beyond.

It’s easy to forget that hi-tops were originally designed as a basketball shoe. These days, they come in flat or platform lug soles and make for the perfect accompaniment for a more contemporary take on sportswear – particularly when worn as part of an athleisure ensemble. However, these type of women’s athletic sneakers are fabulous with any outfit. Hi-tops with jeans are always in style. Styling your high-top sneakers with a skirt is a fun, unexpected look. Pair them with a summer dress  for a casual cool look. The possibilities are endless!
