Whether you’re dressing up or dressing down for any occasion, a great pair of sneakers will never fail to pull your look together. And when it comes to the holidays, there’s nothing better than tearing open wrapping paper to a fresh pair of sneakers just in time for the new year, new you.

While the “sneakerhead” style of expansive collections and limited editions may not be for everyone, picking up the latest trending tennis shoe opens a door to endless casual yet fashionable looks that will turn heads and spruce up your shoe game. 

When it comes to picking sneakers, versatility, comfort and color are three major things to consider. But if you are just dipping your toe into the pool of trending sneakers, there is always something to fit everyone’s style, whether you’re shopping for yourself or for others this holiday season. Below are six on-trend sneakers of various styles and colorways that are sure to be long-lasting staples to any personal style or wardrobe. 

 Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘University Blue’ 

First up, we have a modern, classical take on the beloved Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG shoes that have flooded trend forecasts and popped up on influencer’s pages for months. I have no doubt that the ‘University Blue’ colorway of the shoe will stick around for a bit, with its pale baby blue and white leather with black accents on the Nike swoosh, laces, and ‘Air Jordan’ logo. Such a sought-after shoe comes at a steep price with an average selling price from GOAT sneakers of around $400. 

Nike Air Max 90 ‘The Future is in the Air’

If you’re looking to go the more sporty route with a hint of color that won’t overpower your outfit, the Nike Air Max 90 in ‘The Future is in the Air’ colorway may be the right shoe for you. Featuring the classic Air Max 90 design, the shoe does a good job of not jumping out with intensity if you are looking for a low-key style. Its main cream color is balanced well with the sail, infrared, white, and photon dust (yes that’s a color name) colors, with the Nike swoosh logo popping in the infrared. This shoe comes out on average under $100 from GOAT. 

Reebok Club C 85 ‘White Green’

No need to raid a vintage shop to find something with a vintage feel and brand-new quality. Reebok’s Club C 85’s in ‘White Green’ resemble an iconic shoe of the ’80s, giving classic tennis and golf club vibes for today’s age. The shoe’s main focus of a stark white leather design is sprinkled with touches of green on the Reebok logo that lurks around the shoe. And yet again, we have another shoe that won’t break the bank with its retail price averaging around $60 on GOAT. 

Converse Chuck 70 High ‘Final Club’ 

You can never go wrong with a classic, like Converse sneakers. This particular pair is perfect for those who lean towards canvas shoes for the durability and worn-in look coupled with the neutral colorway of white and egret. The shoe features simple suede elements, and a loop for the laces to wrap around. If you’re looking for an upgrade from the classic Converse Chuck sneakers to a more polished sneaker, these may tickle your fancy. The Converse Chuck 70 High ‘Final Club’ sneakers retail on average around $80 on GOAT. 

Nike Dunk Low ‘Light Bone’

I’ve always been a huge fan of the Nike Dunk Low sneakers, but never felt like there was a super versatile colorway that I knew would go with any look. Well, I no longer have to look any further when it comes to the Nike Dunk Low’s in ‘Light Bone.’ These shoes are the perfect pair of causal streetwear-style sneakers that are sure to fit well with sweatpants or jeans any day of the week. Their main color is cream with accents of sail, light bone, cashmere, and pale ivory colors featured in the colorway. On GOAT, the Nike Dunk Low’s in ‘Light Bone’ on average retail for around $234. 

Nike Blazer Mid ‘77 Vintage ‘White Pine Green’ 

Last but certainly not least, we have a shoe that has been taking people’s closets by storm: the Nike Blazer Mid ‘77 Vintage sneaker. But what’s so special about this specific pair is the colorway. There is something so satisfying about a white shoe with a beautiful green accent that grabs your attention. And oddly enough, in my opinion, green goes with everything. The high-top style sneakers’ main color is white with sail, black, and a bright green Nike logo and swoosh accent. With their leather material, eye-catching green swoosh, and average retail price of around $70 on GOAT, you can’t go wrong.
