The 5 Most Important Nike Sneakers, Plus How to Style Them

Nike sells 25 sneakers every second. That's right—every second. So we don't need to tell you that this trainer brand is super popular. But when it comes to the fashion crowd, there are a few styles that stand above the rest. From checking out the sneaker trends at fashion week, we've noticed that cool women generally opt for one of five key designs. Of course, each one lends itself to being worn a certain way. To help you work out which one might suit your own wardrobe, we've come up with how to wear them and also where to shop the coolest styles. Keep scrolling for the best way to wear your Nikes.

Style Notes: These are possibly the hardest Nike sneakers to pull off because of how futuristic they are—but we're not afraid. In our minds, there are two really great ways to wear these: Either go all out with your boldest coat, trousers and bags, or do a minimalist approach with classic blue jeans and a grey top.

Yes, you can use these for running, but better to try them with a bold pair of trousers.

Style Notes: The closest Nike sneaker you'll find to an "ugly" trainer, these can be worn with nearly anything, although we do love them with this Céline dress.

Style Notes: By far one of the more versatile, evergreen Nike sneakers, the beauty about these is that they come in so many different colours, making it easy to match them to the rest of your outfit. 

These dusty-pink shoes will look great with so many items in your wardrobe.

Style Notes: For the more '80s fashion lovers, the Nike Dunks were first introduced as an athletic shoe but were quickly adopted by skateboarders. These always work well with minis as they're a higher-rise boot style that needs showing off.

Style Notes: Currently this is the Nike sneaker with the biggest high-fashion following. While it comes in various colours, our preference is the white version with the black tick. We say you can wear it with pretty much anything and look chic.

Classics you can (probably) wear to the office.
