I Wear Leggings 4 Times a Week—These Are the Shoes I Recommend

I force myself to work out four times a week and only wear leggings to do so, so I consider myself somewhat of an aficionado when it comes to what shoes to wear with leggings. While I applaud those who experiment with the ways they style the wardrobe staple, when I’m getting ready for a 7 a.m. workout, I prefer to stick to the shoes that I know will look good with every type of leggings. (As a side note, these aren’t necessarily the shoes I work out in. Most of the classes I take are done barefoot or with spin shoes or athletic sneakers.)

The three shoe styles I swear by all have a few things in common: They’re flat, comfortable, easy to get on and off, and they look polished enough for post-workout errands. While some of these may seem a bit obvious, there are specific reasons I swear by them and specific styles that I prefer within each category. Keep reading for all my legging-shoe insight and to shop the three styles that are perfect with leggings (and shop leggings that would look cool with all of them).

When the weather is warm enough, I relish in getting to wear slide sandals with my leggings. Any casual, flat style will do, but I’m most partial to pool slides, as they’re especially comfortable and lend a sporty feel to my legging outfits.

Loafers are probably the most versatile shoe style that I own. They look just as cool with a minidress as they do leggings. The key is to steer clear of loafers that have “fancy” characteristics like embellishment or metallic leather. Classic black loafers look best with leggings.

Of course sneakers and leggings go together, but there are certain types of sneakers that I prefer to wear with leggings. If a workout requires athletic sneakers, I usually stick to Nike Free RN or Roshe Ones. When I’m not working out, I love the convenience of slip-on sneakers, polished styles like the ones that Veja and Common Projects make, and It styles by classic brands (e.g., Nike, Adidas, and Reebok).
