Simple, no-frills black sneakers are a classic addition to any look. Unlike white sneakers, black kicks are more low key and you won’t have to worry about keeping them squeaky clean.
For women, however, finding the perfect pair of black sneakers (or most sneakers, actually) can be a challenge. Many sportswear brands still persist in offering women bright or pink sneakers, failing to acknowledge that women can appreciate all kinds of sneakers. In addition, many hyped sneakers still come in men’s sizing, making the quest for new kicks even more frustrating when you’re a woman. To make things a bit easier, we’ve decided to round up some of the best black sneakers for women available right now.
Our sneaker selection, curated by Highsnobiety Commerce Content Curator Rhianna Matthews, includes hyped silhouettes such as the Balenciaga Triple S and the adidas Originals x Alexander Wang Soccer sneaker, as well as Rihanna’s (the singer, not to be confused with our Rhianna) collaboration with PUMA, the PUMA x Fenty Cleated Creeper, and more classic designs such as the Nike Cortez or the Converse One Star.

NikeLab x ACRONYM Air VaporMax Moc 2
This ACRONYM x Nike collaboration is a game-changer. The black and neon upper is a nice change from the typical hot pink/fuchsia colorways of many women’s sneakers. Not only are they dope, they’re also super comfortable thanks to the laceless construction and Air sole units. This is an easy must-cop.
