Women have always been a part of sneaker culture, yet the scene is still extremely male-dominated. Even the term “sneakerhead” isn’t a gender-neutral word — how many articles have you seen with “male sneakerhead” in them? Exactly.

Thankfully, sneaker companies are finally beginning to listen to what women actually want, releasing kicks in smaller sizes – and not just in stereotypically “girly” styles or colorways.

Our shopping team have gathered the best sneakers in women’s sizing from brands including Acne Studios, adidas Originals, Alexander Wang, Raf Simons, Vans, Eytys and COMME des GARÇONS, among others.
