19 Trendy Retro Sneakers Every Woman Needs For Fall

 

Style blogger, influencer and journalist Candie Anderson has the scoop on 19 trendy retro sneakers for women in a variety of styles and price ranges!

 

 

My love for shoes started in my youth! I’d beg my parents for the latest and greatest sneakers in the hottest trends, and work around the house until I earned them. To say I’m excited that retro sneakers are a hot trend for 2019-2020 is an understatement, I’m ecstatic! In my opinion you can’t compare the athletic sneakers of the 90s to the sneakers of today. You just can’t! 

Do you remember how popular Jordan’s were and how hard they were to obtain in the 90s? I can still remember calling nearly every store for a certain pair of sneakers when I was in middle school! It’s a wonder where I learned how to be persistent and tenacious! 😉 My love for athletic sneakers kind of dwindled over the years though, there weren’t many styles I was crazy about until recently when they started rereleasing sneakers I loved! One thing is for sure, I adore retro inspired Golden Goose sneakers, Converse Chuck Taylors, Jordans and Nike Air Max shoes.

I wanted to share the latest and greatest retro sneakers months ago, but thought I’d wait until fall since kids were back to school and I knew there’d be even more trendy retro sneakers released in the hottest colors and prints! Without further adieu, I’m super excited to share the “freshest retro sneakers” for fall 2019! 

 

 

Retro Sneakers That I Own And Love

Style expert, fashion blogger and journalist Candie Anderson of the blog Candieanderson.com shares 19 trendy retro sneakers for women of all ages! She shares her favorite Jordan sneakers in white and pink snake embossed leather, Adidas Superstar sneaks, Golden Goose white tennis shoes, and Nike Air Max 97 in coral and white.

 

 

This spring and early summer I started exercising a bit more. I was walking every night with my neighbor, and noticed that it was time to update my sneakers because they were losing traction. I started shopping but hadn’t found the perfect pair until I spotted these Nike Air Max 97 sneakers! They come in three different color combinations: pale pink/violet ash/black, teal tint/summit white, white/summit white/coral. I absolutely adore them all, but since coral is the Pantone color of the year, I had to go with the trend! This shade of coral is more like a pale (blush) pink. I am absolutely obsessed with them! It doesn’t hurt that they add a bit of height to my 5’3″ frame!

These trendy retro sneakers can be worn with distressed denim shorts and a cute cami this summer and into fall. They’ll also look great with leggings, or crop skinny jeans!

I bought the original Air Jordan’s in white with pink snake embossed leather when they were originally released nearly two decades ago! I desperately wanted the Jordan 95’s when they debuted in 1995 (I loved the black patent leather) but sadly never got them. Thankfully the Jordan brand released the shoes in pink; I fell in love with them instantly. I have never ever regretted this purchase. In fact, they have been sitting in my closet for over a decade because I thought they’d be a collectors item. If I’d known that Nike was going to rerelease them, I would have worn them more often. They’re extremely comfortable!

It’s no secret snake embossed leather/snake print is incredibly popular for 2019/2020. If these shoes are on your wish list, and your size is still available, grab them while you can! Take the advice from someone who has had the OGs for at least 15 years!

My favorite casual retro sneakers

I bought my first pair of Golden Goose sneakers nearly two years ago and have been hooked ever since. I own them in houndstooth, leopard print and in solid white! They remind me of the Converse One Star shoes that were popular in the mid to late 90s. I’m often asked how comfortable they are, and I must say the white pair I own are much more comfortable than my leopard print shoes because the leopard print sneaks I have, have a wooden sole.

They’re very cute and fun to wear! They’ll look great with anything and everything from casual dresses to denim skirts, shorts, jeans, leggings, and more! I highly recommend them. Unfortunately the white NEVER go on sale, but the print sneakers do occasionally. I’ll be sure to let you know when they do in my sale section! This cute pair with red, white and blue stripes are a must! Stripes are very popular, and quite a bit cheaper than the popular Gucci pair that is equally as trendy.

Adidas Superstar Sneakers regained popularity in 2016, and have been a must for women and men of all ages ever since! I bought my first pair with white copper/rose gold stripes. To this day, they’re still my favorite! I never bought them prior to 2016 because I didn’t think I’d be able to keep them clean. Thankfully I stumbled on this amazing shoe cleaner! It’s a must. It comes with solution and a brush, and is super affordable.

If these leopard print Nike Air Max sneakers had been available in 1998, I would have been ecstatic. While I’ve always loved the style, I think I love the print even more! Leopard print is always a must for fall, especially this season. You can pair these shoes with shorts, skirts, jeans and your favorite basics. PS: They’re so popular, they’re selling out very quickly! There are only a few sizes left.

1995 was a great year for sneakers! We had the must have patent leather Jordans and these gorgeous Air Max 95s that I was coveting, but sadly never got. No wonder I’m so obsessed with retro sneakers these days! 😉 Thankfully, these popular Air Max 95 tennis shoes have resurfaced and for a limited time you can save a bundle on them! They’re currently 40% off, under $100 and come in three different colors for fall.

My Favorite Sneaker From The Early 2000s

I was roaming the celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe in the early to mid 2000s when I saw a pair of sneakers I just had to have. Sadly, the internet was not as popular then, so I couldn’t find them online. I remember stopping by Nordstrom upon my return to Northern California and learned the pretty shoes I’d fallen in love with were called Nike Shox. I quickly became hooked on this style, and wore them religiously for years. Wearing Shox was like having extra cushioning on my feet! It didn’t hurt that I loved the style. I know this post was supposed to be all about retro sneakers from the 80s and 90s, but I couldn’t help it, I absolutely adore Nike Shox and I am so thrilled that they’ve been rereleased! I have my heart set on this pair, even though I just bought a pair of Air Max. Nike knew what they were doing when they rereleased these best selling styles!!!
