Ya gal right here is definitely a sneaker fan, friends. Sporty vibes have become my main vibes over the past few years, and sneakers are the biggest part of that aesthetic in my wardrobe. And personally, I’m really loving the little shine that silver shoes add to spring looks.

Metallic sneakers, especially silver sneakers are a continuing trend this year for 2024. And yet there are some hits and some misses when it comes to finding the right pair. I wanted to see if I could find a really wearable silver sneaker for everyday (because um, that’s when I wear sneakers.) Here’s the rundown of what I tried. Keep scrolling for try-on pics and more details!

Silver Sneakers: My Overall Picks + Thoughts

Firstly, a little side note to Golden Goose though…can you please stop putting glitter on all of your shoes?! It’s making everyone else want to, too, and we’re pretty over it. I don’t think I’m speaking just for myself here. Kthx. Second side note, this packable jacket I’m wearing is bomb!

My Favorite Pair Of The Try-on? These Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Platform, with the Autry Medalist a close second.

And as a heads up…many of these (and silver sneakers in general) are selling quick, my friends. There were a couple of other pairs I wanted to try out but they were just too low in stock. For example, these at Amazon and these New Balance from Anthro. GAHH and these Diadora.

The Converse aren’t available in the widget below, but here are the others I tried for a quick peek!

The Big Search For Wearable Metallic Sneakers For Spring

Consequently, bringing in metallic can sometimes add an element that makes these sneakers feel too ‘extra.’ And while some of my pals here love an ‘extra’ moment, I’m more of a keep-it-sporty-and-subtle-ish peep when it comes to my shoes.

Finding an everyday silver sneaker is honestly a dream goal, so let’s get into it.

1 | Autry Medalist Low in Silver Metallic

Jacket (S) | Tee (M) | Jeans (28) | Sneakers

Where To Buy: at Saks Fifth Avenue | at Net-a-Porter | at Bloomingdale’s | at Neiman’s

Pros: I LOVE the overall style and that the silver here is more matte. That makes it much easier to style up and wear if you don’t love truly shiny shoes (same.) These are comfy, too, and have the best sporty retro vibe. Really good. Autry are very well-made sneakers in general.

Cons: I would love these more with cropped pants, dresses, shorts, etc. But that’s a shorter season for me here in the PNW. For jeans, I wish they had a platform version or I wish the sole was a little more substantial. For the loose jeans I’m wearing today, I find that’s the sneaker styles I prefer best with them.

Want a little less silver but the same shoe? This sneaker option is great, too.

2 | Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Platform in Silver

Where To Buy: at Converse

Pros: First off, these are the MOST cushioned pair I tried on. If you haven’t yet snagged a platform Chuck Taylor you must. Unlike the regular soles, they have SO much cushioning and are amazing to walk around in. Preferred these the most out of all of the styles with jeans on my frame.

Cons: Only available on the Converse website, but silver is in the customizable section, too!

This pair are getting low in stock, but are another high top option I liked from AllSaints. And you can also get the Run Star Hike version on the Converse site.

3 | Golden Goose Running Sole Sneaker

Where To Buy: at Revolve | similar at Bloomingdale’s

Pros: SO freaking rad. I mean, they would be my top pick if they weren’t hundreds of dollars. The sole is substantial and I could see walking ALL over in these once they were broken in a bit. The amount of glitter on this particular pair and the fact that it’s a deep brownish red color didn’t bother me much.

Cons: Price. Price. And I will say though they are supportive, the upper is pretty stiff and would take some time to break-in. Gah, again, let’s get less glitter on cool shoes please.

4 | Marc Fisher Flynnt

Where To Buy: at Nordstrom | at Zappos

Pros: These Marc Fisher sneakers are more of a pewter metallic, which is really pretty in person. These are available at Nordstrom, are super cushiony and decently priced, so a really solid choice.

Cons: They’re not quite the vibe I was looking for in my search, but close. Pewter in color so if you’re truly looking for silver these aren’t exactly it.

5 | Schutz St Bold Metallic Platform Low Top

Jacket (S) | Tee (M) | Jeans (28) | Sneaker (runs wide)

Where To Buy: at Saks Fifth Avenue | at Nordstrom | at Bloomingdale’s

Pros: Ok, these Schutz sneakers (LOVE this brand btw) are SO fun and the shape and comfort factor are spot-on. If you have a wider foot these are good, too. I’d need to get an insole or heel grip (I think it’s mostly the heel that runs wide.)

Cons: ..but…glitter…noooo! The herpes of the craft world, get off my shoes! Honestly, on-the-foot they aren’t as bad as when you’re holding them and looking them in the eye (heh) but idk if I can get past it or not.

I think as long as you always style them super coolly you can get away with these. But the glitter factor makes me think I’d have to really nail it each time I wore them. No shame if you get and wear these. They’re otherwise pretty perfect.

6 | New Balance 1906 Metallic Sneaker

Jacket (S) | Tee (M) | Jeans (28) | Sneakers (size down 1/2)

Where To Buy: at Net-a-Porter

Pros: Shana likes them on me? IF you’re more of a true running sneaker fan and you want a little silver in your life, then these are your jam.

Cons: Hi, no. LOL. These looked cool on the model in her flowy skirt and whatnot but A) they’re too big (I forgot about sizing down in NB) and B) they’re way too dad sneaker-y for me.

It’s a fine line between dad sneakers I like and those I don’t…and these belong in the ‘don’t’ category. Size down 1/2.

And as much as I like a sandal, sneakers are just gonna be more wearable in my closet for most of the year. Hope you found something to like here and thanks again for reading!
