As much as we love experimenting with trends, we always seem to come back to tried-and-true staples that never go out of style. The true classics are well worth the investment – they will last for years, and only get better with age! No matter what your personal style may be, there’s no going wrong with these timeless shoes.
It doesn’t get more old school than a pair of Chuck Taylors. This iconic style has been around since the ‘50s, and continues to be worn by the coolest of the cool. Converse are one of the few shoes that truly look good on anyone – no matter your gender or age. Over the years they’ve come out with a ton of funky colours and designs, but we always seem to gravitate towards the classic white or black options. See how we styled a pair of white Converse here.

We don’t know about you, but we’re getting ready to live in our Birkenstocks this summer – mainly because they’re so darn comfortable. Birkenstocks were designed by a German shoemaker in 1774, and were crafted to mold perfectly to your feet. While these shoes may never be a statement-maker, they are fantastic walking sandals that go with almost anything. We like to embrace the chunkiness of this shoe by pairing them with tailored pieces, like a formfitting bodycon dress. (SoftMoc, $119.99)
Think of these Australian-designed boots as a more practical version of the Chelsea boot – they have a similar ankle height and elastic sides, but can be worn at all times of the year, in all kinds of weather. Blundstones will magically keep your feet cool in the summer and warm during the winter – which will come in handy, trust us! Equal parts cool and functional, these boots will have you swooning for years. (SoftMoc, $209.99)
Who doesn't love practical footwear that also packs a punch in the style department? These iconic rainboots are one of the few things that make rainy days something to look forward to. Not only do they keep your feet dry, they also add instant British flare to your look. Pull a Kate Moss, and juxtapose your Hunters against a pair of patterned skinny jeans and a blazer. They also look amazing with high socks that peek out of the top! (SoftMoc, $164.99)
And finally, the coolest shoe of them all: Doc Martens. Even if you've outgrown your punk phase, Docs are more than just a chunky, grunge-era boot. They are extremely well made, and have become an off-duty staple for models and celebs. Docs definitely have attitude, but they can easily be worn with feminine pieces and bold colours (click here for proof). We’ll be rocking these at The Pyramid this summer with a band tee, jean shorts, and luxe jewellery. (SoftMoc, $164.99)
