Deciding whether a pair of designer sneakers is worth the splurge can be challenging. As a shopping writer with an extensive sneaker collection— from hot new sneakers (opens in new tab) to classically cool white pairs (opens in new tab)— I'm here to help with a go-to list of the best designer sneakers for everyday wear. 

I'm not the only one who believes in an excellent fashion investment. Marie Claire has an entire Worth It  (opens in new tab)section dedicated to splurge-worthy designer goods. Our broader list below includes some of the most popular hits of the designer sneaker world, like viral bee-embroidered Gucci sneakers and the overly-chunky Balenciaga sneakers. It also includes subtler options from brands like The Row and Loewe, because selecting a designer sneaker doesn't have a one-size-fits-all approach. 

Keep scrolling for the list of the best designer sneakers with my stamp of approval. You'll find some of the most affordable options listed first.
