Let’s be honest here.
You probably have a pair of these pants in your wardrobe, don’t you?
If you do, you’ll love this post.
Jogger pants have exploded onto the fashion scene over the past decade or so and it’s not looking like it will stop anytime soon.
You’ll definitely agree that it is really difficult to find pants that offer women two of the best things ever; fashion and extreme comfort.
In our blog post for today, we’ll cover the best sneakers to pair with your jogger pants (or sweatpants) to create a stylish yet leisurely look.
A brief overview of jogger pants
Jogger pants started off as a trend in the early 2010s. Originally spotted on gym-goers, the style grew exponentially as celebrities and athletes alike began to don the athleisure look.
Personalities like Kendall Jenner and Yeezy went public with their designer jogger pants which further escalated the trend to the eyes of the public.
However, that is not the only reason that sweatpants became so popular.
As the popularity of jogger pants grew over time, it has shifted radically from being a part of casual, lazy wear to an actual fashion statement.
Jogger pants have essentially become canvases for people to showcase and highlight an integral part of the casual look - sneakers.
Sneakers are a must if you like wearing jogger pants; they can literally transform your casual outfits from okay-ish to like whoa…
We have chosen the best sneakers to pair with your pants based on these factors:
- Style - It has to look good!
- Practicality - We want sneakers that are versatile and can be worn anytime and anywhere.
- Comfort - If you have comfortable pants, you’d surely want to have comfy shoes too.
- Price - We want to keep the prices in a worthwhile range.
Let’s move on to the first entry in our list.
New Balance MRL420SJ White
We start off our list with one of the sexiest and most elegant New Balance designs of all time - the MRL420SJ.
Basking in a glorious white silhouette, the shoe is just right for casual wear without sacrificing any style.
Being considerably lighter than its previous models, you won’t feel sore after a long day of walking (even running!) which is always a great thing.
The evergreen white design will make your outfits look clean and sleek. They also come in different colorways but we think that white looks the best.
White shoes dominate the practicality aspect. We are big fans of white shoes as they can pretty much be paired with any kinds of jogger pants, light or dark.
A consistent characteristic of all New Balance shoes is that they can also function as sports shoes. Make sure to take proper care of them, though!
It is extremely rare for New Balance shoes to feel uncomfortable as the company takes great pride in its comfort and sole technology.
This shoe is slightly bouncy and fits your feet just right. As we’ve mentioned above, comfort is given maximum priority in designing this shoe so you don’t have to worry about sore feet at the end of the day.
Coming in at $149.95 AUD, this shoe is a good choice if you have a bit of money to spend on a pair of premium sneakers.UPDATE: This product is out of stock, but you can find the latest New Balance sneakers here.
Adidas Flashback Haze Coral Pink/White
The Flashback Haze is a brand new line of women’s sneakers by the German giants.
The shoes took inspiration from the 70’s running era; an addition to the throwback trend that Adidas has been promoting since last year.
The cheeky pink colour of the sneakers looks great with jogger pants or just any pants, to be honest.
The shoe looks gorgeous thanks to its pretty pink silhouette. We suggest that you match this shoe with light-coloured sweatpants (beige, light gray, white).
The iconic three stripes add an element of class to it without being too expressive and contrasting.
This shoe is great for casual wear. It can be used for light athletic activities but we don’t suggest you do that as the rubber sole and mesh lining will wear off over time.
Moving away from its famous Boost soles, Adidas have decided to use rubber soles for this shoe instead.
That might sound unattractive, but you’ll be surprised at the comfort of this shoe even after wearing it for extended periods.
If stability is what you want, the Flashback Haze is an excellent choice. You won’t slip or lose your balance while wearing these shoes.
$139.95 AUD, a very good price to pay if you factor in the quality of the material of the shoe as well as its comfortability.

Nike Air Max Thea Black
The Air Max Thea was introduced in 2013 as part of Nike’s 25 year Air Max anniversary.
The revival of the 1987 edition of the Air Max Thea brought in rave reviews thanks to its streamlined design and premium cushioning.
With a classy black design to boot, this shoe is a great choice for first-time sneaker buyers.
A common trend with shoes that are black or white is that they never really go out of style.
For the Air Max Thea, we recommend matching it with slim-fit jogger pants that are tight at the ankles.
It won’t look that great when paired with baggy sweatpants but of course, you are more than welcome to prove us wrong!
The Air Max was originally designed to serve runners. Hence, this shoe is versatile for athletic activities as well as casual wear.
A common issue with Air Max’s is that the white soles tend to get stained easily.
The best way to deal with that is by cleaning your shoes as soon as you are done wearing it. The longer you wait, the harder it is to remove the stains.
Of course, you can check out our Jason Markk premium shoe cleaners if you are looking for a quick and effective way to clean your shoes.
Nike’s premium cushioning and sole technology guarantees that your feet will not be battered even if you wear them for a long time.
The shoes look bulky at first sight but the actual feeling itself is incredible. Not only are the sneakers light, they are also very forgiving on your feet.
You can say goodbye to blisters and sore feet thanks to the extremely comfortable insides of the shoe.
The Air Max Thea is priced at $139.95 AUD. The sturdiness of Nike's Air Max models means that the shoes will last for a very long time which will justify your spending.

Reebok Classic Leather White
We’ll admit it; we have a soft spot for Reebok shoes.
Putting its history aside, the England-based athletics company produces excellent sneakers consistently every year.
The Classic Leather White model is a prime example.
Bearing the British flag on the tongue of the shoe, the Reebok Classic is known for its soft garment upper. This means that your feet will feel great and fit nicely even if you have not worn it before.
The tiny holes on the shoes will also allow your feet some much-needed breathability.
Sometimes, simplicity is key and the Classic Leather White does just that - no fancy designs, no distractions; just a sleek and neat shoe which we believe will be the perfect pair to go with any of your jogger pants.
While the shoes are great for casual wear, the all white leather even though can get dirty very easily, is also very easy to clean as long you don't take them through super wet or muddy terrains.
The shoes itself are so light you’ll forget that you’re even wearing shoes sometimes (not an exaggeration), due to its very comfortable insides thanks to its soft garment leather finish.
Retailing at $119.95 AUD, the Reebok Classic is a modest choice for women who want shoes that look great with jogger pants without breaking the bank.
