Let's not stop repeating, sneakers are the most comfortable pair of shoes for the city. Their popularity and practicality leave no choice for high heels: even The New Yorker suggests leaving uncomfortable shoes in the past. Perhaps you shouldn't be so categorical, but still the fact remains - with the onset of autumn, more and more girls are choosing a new pair of sneakers, not shoes. We asked sneaker experts, buyers and stylists to recommend which ones to choose for the beginning of autumn.
Nike Sock Dart Light Bone
Kixbox store stylist
White sneakers will always be popular. Nike continues to fuel interest in its Dart Sock this season. The ivory color will hardly leave anyone indifferent. Despite the fact that the color palette was designed primarily for girls, later the brand decided to release a pack in men's sizes as well. What I would like to say special about this model is that it is very comfortable and due to its futuristic shape it will look cool with everyday clothes.
Reebok x Naked Club C 85
Kixbox store buyer
I am very impressed with the classic model from the joint collection of Reebok and the Danish store Naked. The Danes know a lot about minimalism, this time they made a very simple, but at the same time interesting collaboration. Shop Naked specializes in women's sneakers, and who, if not them, knows what is best for a girl. Perforated leather and asymmetrical 'Reebok' lettering in red and green are key features of this model. Otherwise, this is the classic 1980s Club C tennis silhouette - a simple solid color that will look equally good with jeans and a dress.
Rihanna x Puma Creeper Orange Camo
creative director of Sneakerhead
Recently, my appetite for sneakers has diminished a little, and I do not buy everything on eBay and in our store, but I often buy sneakers for my wife Inna, who has recently gathered a pretty decent collection.
If we are talking about the beginning of autumn, then I would immediately dismiss all kinds of "flynits", "boosts" and so on, since sneakers at this time of the year should be able to withstand bad weather in the slightest degree. Therefore, I consider the new camouflage creepers from Puma and Rihanna to be the perfect match for her. Girls love regular creepers too, but they look especially cool in Puma's interpretation. "Kamo" may last life, but not in this case.
ASICS Gel-Lyte V
My choice fell on the ASICS Gel-Lyte V from the Core Plus pack. Although this is not a collaboration, it looks as if Ronnie Feig himself had a hand in them. Recently, I began to notice that ASICS designers know how to play well with colors, choosing not the most beaten of them. When looking at this model, the only association that comes to mind is coral reefs and sand, which I and everyone else lacks in the fall. Having studied several European sites, I was surprised that they were almost nowhere left, but we have the entire dimensional grid.
Nike Tennis Classic Ultra Flyknit

Well, what can we say about this beauty - the classic form is packed in new and most technologically advanced materials. The already proven "flynits" are super light and comfortable. Just a must have.
Nike Air Max Thea Harrington
founder of the women's community SoleDepot
This isn't the first time California-based artist Stephen Harrington has brought his vibrant prints onto sneakers. This time, it was good for female couples, in the best sense of the word. The collaboration with Nike included several different, extremely lightweight models. The Air Max Thea was released for the 25th anniversary of the Air Maxim model, only in a female version. They are very comfortable and lightweight thanks to the large number of holes in the back and front. For those who are rude in the first and 90s "Max", this option is what you need. It's very cool when they can fit all the essentials in such a simple silhouette.
Nike air max 1
The legendary Air Max 1 is perfect for the beginning of autumn, you can easily choose the color of your choice in almost any store and also find this model in leather. Well, if you prepare for autumn in advance, you can have time to order a pair from the NikeID service in your design. The pronounced tread will perfectly cope with grip on asphalt in bad weather, and in terms of convenience, the Air Max 1 has always been comfortable for daily wear.
Diadora V7000 Futurism
leading buyer of the SuperStep network
V7000 is one of the most comfortable models for every day today. Particular attention should be paid to the use of the latest technologies that guarantee foot support, and the low weight (280 g) is ideal for the fast pace of the city.
Each season, Diadora designers present modern re-editions of the classics. In its latest summer collection, the brand launched the V7000 in the Futurism pack, adding futuristic elements inspired by the work of young Italian futurist artists of the last century. Bright prints and original colors make sneakers a great option for every day in the summer. The model from this pack will be a good solution for those who want to buy outstanding sneakers. The upper, available in two colors, is complemented by all the signature elements, such as the iconic Diadora logo.
RUB 24 600
While big sports brands compete in the eternal race of more and more limited releases and come up with new collaborations, this fall I choose the perfect product in its simplicity and brevity - Courrèges leather sneakers. Courrèges is another brand with a rich history that has now been revived and became one of the most hyped in Paris Fashion Week thanks to the efforts of two young designers who were previously a duo under the Coperni brand and attracted everyone's attention during the last LVMH Prize.
Do not think that I am against limited releases, they are very much to my liking. But if you need to choose one pair for this fall that will fit your entire wardrobe, look good and appropriate for any occasion, I would choose these sneakers. Black or white, made of soft glossy leather, laconic shape and with thick rubber soles - these sneakers can be worn with all your smart clothes, dresses or culottes, bright accessories, colored fur, large jewelry - in general, everything that is so necessary this fall and winter. Personally, I plan to wear it with a Vetements T-shirt dress, a bright Marques'Almeida sheepskin coat, or any cropped jeans. A confident investment in comfortable and beautiful shoes for the new season.
