Coolest statement sneakers you need right now

Want to know which shoes are trending? See all the top statement sneakers you need to be wearing and find out where to buy them.

Whether you want to look cool at the gym or during your day to day life, statement sneakers can amplify your outfit. A great pair of kicks can make you look stylish and right on trend.

We love statement sneakers because they can be paired with so many outfits. Wearing a sundress and denim jacket? A pair of sleek Nike Air Force 1s will match the look perfectly. Is a band tee and skinny jeans more your style? Surely you can't say no to a fierce pair of NMDs from adidas.

There are so many different styles of sneakers on the market that it can be hard to decide which one you should spend your money on. We have pulled together a list of the coolest statement sneakers that you need to know about.
