The new Flyknit Racer “Goddess” does two things: it pays homage to Nike's namesake, the Greek goddess of victory, and marks the occasion of this week's International Women’s Day. We’re a huge fan of white-on-white styling, Nike’s breathable flyknit technology, and women, so we consider this shoe an instant classic.

The Ignite Limitless from PUMA is a fresh take on the always evolving training shoe. These sneaks are excellent for working out and lifting, but with their classy, understated colorway, you can feel free to wear these pretty much everywhere. The Ignites have excellent cushioning and foam insert in the midsole that adds some solid comfort to every step.

The new SB Dunks from Nike might be listed as a skateboarding shoe, but these casual kicks are the perfect mix of style and comfort for men of any age. This “rethunk” model has an updated low-to-the-ground Nike Zoom Air and enhanced flexible cushioning in the heel. They still maintain the vintage layout we first saw fifteen years ago while implementing upgraded technology to create a super cool shoe with a great, relaxed fit.
