Sneakers are probably the most versatile shoes in our closet, and now that spring is about to begin, it’s worth taking a closer look at the most popular sneakers for spring 2023. Here are the top 5 sneakers for men and women on Stylight!

For Women:

  1. Hogan “Interactive”: Italian brand Hogan leads the list of the most popular sneaker models for women this spring. The model “Interactive” in beige / gray is currently the most clicked model for women’s sneakers in 2023. The sneaker is a combination of suede, woven material and leather inserts. Simple, but with an elegant twist.
  2. Gucci “Rhyton”: The Gucci “dad sneakers” are and will remain in demand. The Gucci “Rhyton” model with leather logo print is the second most popular spring sneaker for women. The chunky silhouette adds an understated, sporty touch to any outfit while still making a real statement.
  3. Christian Louboutin “Vieira”: The last sneaker on the winner’s podium is the “Vieira” leather sneakers by Christian Louboutin. They are the epitome of simple elegance. No flashy logo, no gaudy colors, just a cool, clean, understated look. Only when walking or sitting, is the famous red sole of the brand noticeable.
  4. Veja “Campo”: It’s clear that Veja isn’t losing popularity anytime soon. Even though the vegan leather shoe company has been around since 2005, we’ve seen them really hit their stride in the last few years. And the favorite model? It’s gotta be “Campo”, landing in the #4 spot this year.
  5. Nike “Dunk Low”: It’s no surprise that there would be a Nike sneaker in the top 5 list this year. Move over Air Force 1, the new fave in women’s sneakers is the Nike Dunk Low. A street style staple, this model is often sold out, especially the ones with the classic black and white “Panda” color scheme.

For Men:

  1. Copenhagen “CPH70″: This model features a white, minimalistic design in soft leather, which is a clear reference to the brand’s signature craftsmanship. These sneakers are popular not only because of their aesthetics, but especially because of their high quality – with some pieces being crafted by hand, making them the most wanted sneakers for men on Stylight this spring.
  2. Nike “Air Force 1 07”: The Nike Air Force 1 model is a true symbol of classic footwear in the sneaker world. Its classic silhouette, matched with its durable stitched overlays, make it a timeless sneaker – not to mention it’s low price point makes it an affordable, yet trendy sneaker.
  3. Alexander McQueen “Oversized”: This Alexander McQueen court shoe is quickly becoming a cult classic, landing in our #3 spot. Similar to the familiar Adidas Stan Smiths, it’s a simple, white sneaker. However, the somewhat exaggerated profile and platform sole, give it that extra oomph – which may be why they fall on the pricier side, costing around $600-700.
  4. New Balance “991”: New Balance has definitely become a hyped brand in the last year, with many of their models being consistently sold out. And the latest, most wanted sneaker? The 991 is the perfect combination of comfort, style, and 90’s nostalgia. Featuring elements of suede and mesh, the design is comfortable, but still looks cool enough for a streetstyle look.
  5. Nike “Air Max 98”: Originally released in 1998, the Nike Air Max 98 was dusted off and re-released in 2018 in new, eye-catching colors and features. The sneaker is definitely more sporty than the Air Force, but still has maintained its place on the street style scene.
