5 Under-$50 Steals From the Macy’s Sneaker Sale

Sneakers of the non-gym variety have become such a vital part of a fashion-forward wardrobe that they are now even acceptable street style-wear in Paris. I never thought that day would come. So, how’s your sneaker wardrobe looking these days?

If you are feeling a little sneaker-light, I have the sale for you. Right now you can snag a wear-everywhere sneaker from one of the big three labels – New Balance, Adidas, or Converse – for under $50 at Macy’s. My top five favorites are presented here, but there are plenty of other styles available.

New Balance is my sneaker of choice, and I have a pair very similar to this 555 that I have practically worn out. I really like the ultra-neutral dove grey/ cream/ gold color scheme.

Classic Chucks seem to come in a never-ending variety of colors and textures. I love how this diamond weave looks like snakeskin. So much fun.

You can’t go wrong with black New Balance sneaks. I’ve worn mine everywhere, including the aforementioned streets of Paris.

I haven’t tried Adidas yet, but these off white and gold Gazelles are pretty tempting.

A silvery-white finish makes it clear that these sneaks are all about fashion, not logging miles on the treadmill.
