Snobette Sneaker Awards for 2019 was an inflection point from prior years. While our top 10 has always included female designers, this year was a breakout with six out of the top shoes made in collaboration with women. The selections also mark a second year of dominance for Nike, whose brands landed eight of the ten spots.
As always, we want to thank our panelists who helped inform this list with their own lists of top five shoes. Our experts include Susan Boyle of Rime, Murata PJs of Solefiness boutique in Australia, plus New York-based model/fitness expert Kirsy Lovett, IncorpHerated founders Khiana Lowe and Brittany Edwards and writer Maria Mora.
Check out all our picks below, starting with No. 10 and ending with our No. 1 sneaker design for 2019.
