Sacrificing comfort in favor of style is so passé, especially when retail shelves are stocked full of shoes that are as comfortable as your trusty home slippers – with the added bonus of endless style points. Here, Savoir Flair rounds up three styles – a sneaker, a boot, and a sneaker boot – that are favored by the most up-to-date members of the fashion crowd. They’re all super cool, utterly comfortable, and actually affordable. Scroll through, start shopping, and feel more on trend in an instant.
The Cool Hybrids
Gone are the days of Public School designing for DKNY. With Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow exiting the brand, nostalgia is upon us – but it’s not too late to get your hands on pieces from the designers’ last (and strongest) collection. These sneaker boots come in both ankle and thigh-high versions, which are now available in stores. Gigi Hadid is a fan. And we are too.
The Throwback Favorites
Dr. Martens boots are having a major moment. The Hadid sisters are both fans and have been spotted wearing the iconic brand’s styles week after week. Affordable and high in quality, these boots feel trendy yet ooze throwback charm – what more could you want? This cherry-red pair is an absolute must-have.

The Rapper's Delight
Rappers are the coolest addition to the fashion crowd, taking front-row seats at all the top fashion shows – and who knows cool kicks better than these stylish men? When Future started designing sneakers with Reebok, we were all ears and all in. Luckily for us, this knit style, a result of the collaboration, also comes in small sizes. Get it while you can.
