Adidas shoes are a classic for sneakerheads, runners, and anyone who simply loves a durable, well-made sneaker. The brand known for its famous three stripes has been a sports favorite for almost 100 years now. German company founded in 1924 by two brothers, the brand specialized in football and running shoes with more comfortable canvas and rubber spikes on the bottom, an improvement over the heavy metal spikes of the time. After the brothers fought and went their separate ways, the company officially became Adidas – and still caters to athletes today. (Fun fact: the other brother went on to found Puma.) They specialize in footwear designed for basketball, football, hiking, street style, and more. Since there are so many choices available, we’ve rounded up the best adidas sneakers for men and women. Our top picks range from athletic shoes, more casual picks, and special collections like YEEZY and Stan Smith.
So if you’re looking to add a comfortable, stylish and durable shoe to your collection – or a fashionable collaboration with Kanye West – we’ve got you covered. Here are some of our favorite adidas sneakers for everyone.
Best Women’s Shoes
1. Best White Shoe
CLOUDFOAM PURE 2.0 SHOES – adidas, $75
Everyone needs a plain white sneaker for casual outings. Pair them with cargo pants, leggings or jeans for a clean aesthetic. They’re perfect for year-round wear and will be a staple shoe in your wardrobe for years to come. They’re even made with recycled materials, so shop happy knowing that adidas is doing its part by producing sustainable products. The shoe has a super comfortable midsole and memory foam insole, so if you’re wearing these for a job where you’re on your feet all day, you’ll appreciate these kicks.
2. Best slip-on sneaker
NIZZA RF SHOES – adidas, $70
Slip-on shoes were designed for girls like me who aren’t always in the mood to tie up their shoes. Let’s face it – if you don’t undo your shoes and take them on and off throughout the day, these are the ones for you. Designed with a textile upper and rubber outsole, they’ll last a long time. Choose between black, white and chalk white.

3. Best shoe under $50
NIZZA TREFOIL SHOES — adidas, $46
This classic everyday sneaker is affordable, easy to style and cute. The Nizza Trefoil shoe has an adidas logo on the side, and it’s also a popular choice among skateboarders and basketball players. A leather lining and rubber outsole make these shoes a pair that will last: Choose between black and white.
4. Best platform shoe
FORUM BOLD SHOES — adidas, $75
Go big and bold with the adidas Forum Bold shoe. The platform outsole adds that chunky style we all need to embrace. If you haven’t invested in a platform shoe yet, you’re missing out. It’s a basic streetwear shoe and looks great with wide leg jeans, cargo pants and even biker shorts. This color is gorgeous, but there are 9 different colors available. These shoes were made from recycled content.
5. Our favorite Stan Smith shoe
STAN SMITH Halo Blush SHOES – adidas, $100
A pair of Originals you may already own are Stan Smith shoes. The iconic sneaker is perfect for the minimalist, but this blush halo sneaker is unique and modernized while honoring the OG shoe. With botanical graphics and a pretty peachy pink color, the shoe definitely takes it up a notch when it comes to style. It’s no ordinary shoe, but it’s not over the top either. The eco-friendly shoes have a comfortable insole to keep your feet pain free after all day use.
Best Men’s Shoes
6. Best White Shoe
NMD_R1 PRIMEBLUE SHOES — adidas, $150
If there’s one shoe you get on this list, let it be this one. The NMD_R1 shoes are modern but still have that 80s look we all love. The everyday sneaker will look great with joggers, jeans, gym shorts and more. The cloud white color is a plus, because you can match these shoes to many cuts. There are six different styles though, so consider black too. Either way, you’ll get a sock-like fit with energy-returning cushioning for all-day comfort.
7. The best Stan Smith sneakers
STAN SMITH VULC SHOES — adidas, $60
These Stan Smith shoes have a retro vibe that’s perfect for all your band tees and fun graphic tees that you don’t wear as often as you like. These updated versions of the classic Stan Smith shoe have a vulcanized sole, giving these vintage basketball shoes a modern twist.
8. Best high top shoes
NIZZA HI RF SHOES – adidas, $100
The adidas Nizza is another great shoe to wear with t-shirts. Wear them to the skate park, brunch, concerts, and even casual nights at the food park. If you love Converse, you’ll love these high tops. You can wear them with skinny jeans, straight pants and more. The opportunities are endless. There are five colors available, but we love it in this faded, distressed black. The shoes are made with recycled materials.
9. Best Medium Shoe
HOOPS 3.0 MID CLASSIC VINTAGE SHOES – adidas, $70
Mid-top shoes are truly high-end sneakers – they’re stylish and a tribute to a vintage basketball shoe. It’s a classic choice if you want to start trying out trendier sneakers but aren’t sure where to start. There are different colors to choose from, so find a pair (or two) you like. They’re also incredibly comfortable, thanks to the cushioned heel and genuine leather. Unsurprisingly, these shoes have a perfect five-star rating.
10. Best Yeezy Shoe
YEEZY BOOST 380 ONYX — adidas, $230
Kanye West is a music and fashion visionary. Her collaborations with major brands and designers have encouraged many of her fans, peers and family to take risks with their fashion choices. For many, it started with his collaboration with adidas. Consider the YEEZY Boost 380 ONYX shoes. Even if you’re not one to wear a bold shoe, this is a great choice for something fresh while still maintaining the look of a casual sneaker.
