Prom Sneakers Are the New Heels — Shop the Best Styles Now
If you ask us, we think prom sneakers are the best shoes to wear on the big night. For starters, they're much more comfier to wear than heels and come in a range of different styles and colors. Plus, they can pair well with any fancy outfit, like a prom suit or even a long prom dress (we suggest going with a platform pick for a little lift).
You can choose between low-tops, slip-ons, or high-top sneakers and since it's prom night, you can go all out and sport sparkly prom sneakers that feature sequins, rhinestones, and bling (these Betsey Johnson Sidny Crystal Pavé Platform Sneakers are everything). Not to mention, you could also get custom sneaks to match your dreamy cottagecore prom dress (check out the flower trims on these ASOS sneakers).
Whether you’re a Converse, Nike, or Steve Madden kind of gal, we found the best sneakers to pair with short and long prom dresses, including (but not limited to) some of our favorite classic styles like the Chuck Taylor All-Stars, Air Force 1’s (look at how cute the sparkly Nike swoosh looks), and a selection of new arrivals that are perfect for any special occasion. Complete with everyday styles and dance-floor-approved prom looks, do your feet a favor and shop the best kicks now.
