Good Walking Shoes to Wear With Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans should be paired with the right walking shoes.

Wearing comfortable walking shoes is important to prevent foot injuries such as blisters and calluses (see reference 1). However, some walking shoes aren't flattering to wear with skinny jeans, and appealing shoes such as stilettos hurt your feet. Fortunately, there are more comfortable walking shoes that don't detract from the sleek look of skinny jeans.

Ballet Flats

Ballet flats make your feet look slender and graceful, and they look appealing with skinny jeans. Because they don't have heels, they make good walking shoes. Look for brands such as Kenneth Cole's Gentle Souls, which uses a patent-pending technology to make comfortable shoes and sandals. What's more, Gentle Souls shoes are comfortable without sacrificing style. For example, the Baytime flats include man-made souls and flaxseed memory pillows and are lined with deerskin to make the shoes comfortable for walking. The flats also have a decorative strap that adds a stylish flair and an elegant shape that looks attractive when paired with skinny jeans.

Converse Sneakers

Sneakers are made for comfort and physical activity. The Converse company has a history of creating athletic sneakers for basketball players and continues this tradition today (see reference 2). Fortunately, Converse offers several sneakers that look attractive with skinny jeans. Select sneakers that are narrow and lightweight so your shoes look as sleek as the lines of your jeans. For example, the Chuck Taylor All Star Multi Eyelet shoes are comfortable and stylish, with thin shoelaces that crisscross. Pair them with skinny jeans in a matching or complementary colour. For instance, wear grey Chuck Taylors with black or charcoal skinny jeans.

UGG Boots

UGG boots are made with removable sheepskin insoles and light and flexible outsoles, and they're very comfortable. They also look great with the tapered silhouette of skinny jeans. For a stylish outdoor look, tuck your jeans into the boots. Select your UGGs in a colour that matches your skinny jeans. For example, buy a Classic Argyle Knit boot in charcoal to match a dark-wash denim.
