TFG readers love these black leather sneakers from Vionic. They’re perfect for light walking around a sunny destination!

Gym Shoes

When it comes to working out in black, it’s all about the footwear. While many sneakers can work as gym shoes, those that are specifically designed for weightlifting and other workouts will help you perform at your best.

One pair that fits the bill is the Streamlines by On Running. They’re super light, which is crucial for high-intensity sessions, but they also offer support where you need it most. The APMA-approved, eco-conscious sneaker has a speed heel cap, a seamless tongue, and “FutureFoam” cushioning that feels like you’re wearing nothing at all.

Another good choice is Ryka’s No Limit training shoe, which is specially engineered for women’s feet based on their unique muscle movement and build. The shoe’s Graphene Powerheel adds stability during strength workouts while its flexible forefoot and wide flat outsole allow you to move quickly in cardio and cross-training classes. It also has a sturdy rubber outsole with a circle pivot point design and soft foot cushioning for easy transitions from the heel to the forefoot.

Unassuming Sneakers

A pair of black sneakers adds visual weight to your look without shouting it. Wear them with your favorite jeans or a simple tee to balance out the dark colorway.

If you’re not into a chunky ’90s kick, consider sleek black trainers made of leather and satin instead. These shoes from Mallet London are a modern take on classic silhouettes, bringing a hint of punk to your look while also being machine-washable.

These sneakers, favored by celebrities like JoJo Fletcher and Meghann Fahy, are perfect for anyone looking to embrace a less traditional sneaker. They’re made of soft, luxurious fabric and leather and have a sleek rubber sole, making them comfortable enough to wear all day.

The sustainable brand Allbirds is renowned for its cult-favorite Tree Runners, which are made with responsibly-sourced eucalyptus tree fiber and are incredibly breathable and notably comfortable. This particular style has received a major seal of approval from The Cut’s very own Bryce Dallas Howard, who calls them “the best running shoes I have ever worn.” The minimalist sneakers are so lightweight and sleek that they don’t even need to be broken in before wearing.

Comfortable Loafers

Whether you want to relive your ’90s fantasies with a chunky lug sole pair or elevate a graphic tee and high-waist jeans with a chic leather silhouette, there are plenty of loafers to choose from this season. You can keep things super sleek with a slipper-like pair like Birdie’s Starling loafers or opt for something more sophisticated with a pair of snazzy leather clogs from Nordstrom.

You can also keep it classic with a pair of traditional penny loafers, as well as more designer styles from brands like Gucci, Tod’s and Louboutin. Just make sure to look for ones made with soft leather that won’t chafe or rub against your feet.

Another option is a pair of orthopedic-friendly loafers, like these from Vionic, which are designed with next-level arch support, stability and cushioning. They also come in wide sizing to perfectly cradle everything from bunions to swollen feet. So even on those long museum tours and flight excursions, you can skip the blisters.

Work Shoes

The shoes you wear to work can make or break your day, especially if you spend most of the time on your feet. Whether your job involves running around a hospital or restaurant, or you’re just on the go all the time (like Ree Drummond), you need comfortable footwear to get through your days at the office.

Sneakers and loafers are great options for most work environments, but some require a bit more formal shoe style. To meet those requirements, try ballet flats crafted from faux leather or microsuede for a slick, stylish appeal that fits most work dress codes. Alternatively, you could go with booties like these Vivaia square-toe waterproof lace-ups, which are water-resistant and made to withstand all the wear and tear of long workdays or commuting by foot. These also have a roomy toe box, so they won’t aggravate bunions like high heels would. For more options, you can also shop for industry-tested and -approved slip-resistant shoes for women from brands like Skechers Work and Spring Step.
