With input from the Snobette Sneaker Awards panel, we present you with a list of the top ten sneakers for women in 2018. Nike really dominated by building on last year’s momentum with new great new silhouettes and a very purposeful strategy of partnering with high clout creatives and labels including Virgil Abloh, Yoon Ahn, Comme Des Garçons, Undercover and Jerry Lorenzo, among others.
As always, we are very thankful to our panel, who include two of the savviest buyers of women’s sneakers in the world, Susan Boyle of Rime NY boutique and Murata PJs of Sole Finess boutique in Australia, plus New York-based model/fitness expert Kirsy Lovett, Incorp[Her]ated founders Khiana Lowe and Brittany Edwards and writer Maria Mora. Once again, Soleil Barros provided a West Coast perspective.
As always, we made it our focus to pick shoes that resonated with women and made some waves within sneaker culture however. Enjoy our picks below, starting with No. 10 and working back to No. 1.
