After a busy summer, your kicks likely have little life left in them, and fall is a great time to invest in a new pair of sneakers. They should be super comfortable, offer some warmth and insulation, and have stylish good looks, too. Here are a few pairs of new sneakers that are perfect for fall. —Jennifer Cox
Cardi B Classic Leather V2 Shoes – Preschool (from Reebok Canada, $85) comes in a cool shade known as Whisper Blue, and incorporate iconic DNA with modernity, boldness and flare. The molded Vector and oversized outsole lugs pay homage to Reebok while representing Cardi B’s explosive, high-energy and exaggerated lifestyle.
The Skechers Slip-ins: Max Cushioning ($165) come in four colour combos and are designed with a unique Comfort Pillow in the heel. The best part is, they slip on and off quickly and easily, and are very breathable for a comfortable all-day fit.
Optimize your fall workouts with the Chargefeel Low Women’s Workout Shoe from Lululemon ($178). Their “run-first, train-second” design mirrors the way you work out, and the midfoot frame provides support for both running and training. Plus, the pressure-mapped outsole delivers traction and flexibility.
Sorel Canada’s Women’s Out ‘N About Plus Lace Sneaker ($72) was inspired by their classic Out ‘N About boot, and offers both traction and waterproof capabilities. These running shoes are crafted of a waterproof suede-and-textile upper and classic herringbone sole that will keep you steady on slick surfaces.
For classic sneakers for fall, check out Under Armour’s Women’s UA Charged Assert 9 Running Shoes ($85).

Leather overlays add durable stability, and a mesh upper keeps your feet comfortable for miles.
Puma’s Cell Vive Alt Women’s Running Shoes ($70) come in two very cool colour schemes: gold and black or white and neon yellow/green. Their higher upper provides stability and support, and their cushioned interior can withstand hours of walking and exercise.
