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.

2. Nike Air Max

The Nike Air Max is an iconic sneaker with maximum cushion support. There are so many colours to choose from that you will be able to find something to suit your style and make you look like a pro-basketballer. Pictured is the 97 but we also love the 95 and 270.

Price: $160 to $280 (depending on the type of Air Max and colour-way)

The adidas NMDs are ultra lightweight and are basically cushions for your feet. With a sock-like feel, this shoe is made to let your feet breathe and perform as they should. The adidas NMD is available in a number of colour-ways.

Price: $200 to $380

5. Puma Thunder

The Puma Thunder looks like something from the future. The sneaker leans towards the chunkier side but it's well known for its loud colour blocking and blown-up proportions. There is a variety of cool colour options available.

Price: $180

6. New Balance 574

The New Balance 574 has grip like no other statement sneaker. The shoe is styled with a mix of suede and mesh panelling so that the foot is supported and cushioned to the max. It comes in both colour blocking and minimal colour-ways.

7. Vans Comfy Cush

The Vans Comfy Cush range is a revamped style from the standard Vans sneaker. The sole is all cushion and is soft and supportive. The sneakers are available in the Old Skool, Authentic, Era and SK8-Hi options so you can find one that suits your style.

8. Reebok Aztrek

Another retro runner from the 90s style, the Reebok Aztrek is a large and in-charge shoe. There is no slimming down the foot and with a mix of suede and fabric panels, there is a lot of cool options on offer, specifically inspired by throwback colour-ways.

Price: $140 to $160

9. Nike Air Force 1

The Nike Air Force 1 is a sneaker forced into history, first arriving on the basketball court but quickly making its way into street style. The shoe features a white on white leather colourway; it's simple and has plenty of cushioning. Our favourite is the timeless all-white option but there are a few other colours available too.

Price: $90 to $170

10. adidas Ultraboost

The adidas Ultraboost is the ultimate shoe to stay active and look very cool while doing so. This statement shoe contours to your foot and mimics the movement of a runner. The variety of colourways available means that it works to be styled into your everyday closet.

Price: $240 to $340
