The Best Shoes of 2018

If you know me, you know I am obsessed with shoes! For this article, I am going to list out my favorite shoes of 2018. I am normally a size 8 or 8.5 and base size conversions on that, therefore a size 7 in men’s and size 7 in kids.

 

Lifestyle Sneakers:

NMD_R2 Shoes (Men’s Size 7)

These shoes are by far my favorite ever because they are stylish and probably one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. They have the boost material as the base of the shoe, which provides comfort and makes you feel like you are walking on clouds. I bring these shoes with me wherever I travel because I am able to walk for miles!

 

NMD_R2 Primeknit (Men’s Size 7)

These are stylish shoes for lifestyle wear. 

 

Nike Air Force 1 Low Shoes (Kids Size 6.5)

These are great shoes that you can wear everyday and basically pair with anything. A hack is getting a kids size because it is a couple of dollars cheaper than the men's or women's. In the kid's size they run a little big so I went down from a 7 to a 6.5. Definitely recommend!

 

Adidas Superstar Shoes (Women's Size 8)

These are basic shoes that I don't have to worry about getting dirty. They are sturdy and have a strong outside. 

 

Running Shoes:

Nike Epic React Flyknit Running Shoes (Women’s Size 8.5)

I love love love these shoes! They are great for traveling and super stylish for everyday wear and working out. I just got them in early November and I have been wearing them everyday since! They are very comfortable because it has foam as the base of the shoe and they are also very lightweight.

 

Nike Free RN Flyknit 2017 Running Shoes (Women's Size 8.5)

Before I got the Epic React Flyknit shoes, I had these shoes and they were not okay for me to run in because they were not very supportive. I did wear them as everyday shoes though because they were comfortable to walk in, while also being stylish.

 

Sandals:

Birkenstock Florida Soft Footbed (Women's Size 38)

These sandals are great for the summer, after a workout and more! I purposely got these sandals because I can wear socks with them and they are a little different from the typical two strap Birks.

 

Birkenstock Gizeh Sandals (Women's Size 39)

These Birkenstocks are a beaut! They are fantastic summer shoes and you can either dress them up or down.

 

Steve Madden Bandi Platform Wedge Sandal (Women's Size 8.5)

I wore these shoes while walking everywhere in Italy and they are comfortable and cute! They add a little bit of height, while also being cute. A con is that they are pretty heavy, so be aware when you are traveling!

 

Reef Stargazer Sandals Black (Women’s Size 8.5)

These are just an essential when you travel and need shoes to wear in the hotel room. I also wear these sandals everyday in my college dorm and wear them as shower shoes.

 

Outdoors/Adventure:

Teva Original Universal (Women’s Size 8) OR Teva Original Sandal (Women’s Size 8)

I love Teva’s! First of all, they are amazing shoes when you are in the outdoors either hiking or camping. You can get them wet, they are thin/flexible and lightweight. When I am camping, I like to bring them and just buckle them to the outside of my backpack.

 

Boots:

Cole Hann Harrington Knee High Riding Boot (Women's Size 8)

Getting a black or brown pair of these boots or tall boots similar to these is a Fall essential! They are super cute when you wear leg warmers with leggings or jeans and a sweater.

 

Hunter Original Tall Rain Boot (Women’s Size 8)

My lifesaver when it is pouring rain! I wear the Hunter socks with these Silver boots and it adds a pop of color to your outfit.

 

Overall, I love all these shows and I would definitely recommend trying them out!
