One fashion trend that will never go out of style is sneakers, and for fall they’re very on-trend. Whether it be a sporty, slip-on or leather design, the market for sneakers is endless and who doesn’t love a good shoe shopping experience? Plus, sneakers are the one item in your closet that you can dress up or down and still be comfortable throughout the day. That’s why today we are rounding up our favorite styles for both men and women alike with prices under $50.

One sneaker that stands out above the rest is Converse’s Unisex Chuck Taylor. Not only are they affordable at just $40, but they also look great with jeans, dresses or shorts alike. Plus, they’re available in an array of color options from bright hues of pink to a classic white. For a little background on the sneaker, basketball’s first ever player-endorser, Chuck Taylor, is the name behind the popular sneaker and that’s why the All-Star patch was placed on them in 1923. The shoe became very well-known in the game and soon became woven into the fabric of American culture as a true icon.

For men, a Chukka Sneaker is very popular for transitioning from summer to fall and Timberland’s option is our favorite. Its suede exterior is perfect for fall weather and it’s available in a gray or black color. You may even be able to get away with wearing these stylish sneakers to work. With over 280 reviews at Nordstrom, these chukka sneakers are rated 4.8/5 stars. Even better, Timberland’s sneakers were originally priced at $80, however they’re currently marked down to $40.

Leopard is a huge trend for women this fall and one way to show off your love for this style is through your sneakers. GAP has an awesome slip-on style that’s casual and would look great worn with jeans or leggings alike. They also feature a cushioned insole for added comfort and the sock-like design will get you out of the door in a breeze. They’re also on sale for just $36.

Over the past year, New Balance has really stepped up their sneaker game and the 247 kicks are perfect for everyday wear. They have options for both men or women and they are very affordable. One style that stood out was the 247 Decon in Navy that’s priced at $48. I love the sporty aesthetic and they was designed to be very lightweight. Plus, the mesh material will help to keep you cool and breathable no matter the weather.
