We found the *perfect* sneaker for your sign

Sneakers: They're mega cool, majorly comfy and go with just about anything. We're thanking our lucky stars that it's 2019 and totally acceptable to pair our favorite kicks with everything from casual joggers to glammed-up gowns.

Whether you're a total sneakerhead or just trying them on for size, we guarantee you can update your style—and your entire vibe—with a new pair of kicks.

Our fashion inspo? Skai Jackson: Actress, activist and author of the new memoir Reach for the Skai. We're obsessed with Skai's taste in footwear—from Air Jordans (she received her first pair at age seven!) to rocking rarer pairs in her daily lewks.

Want to find the *best* sneaker for your personality? Inspired by Skai, we've matched a gorge pair of kicks to each sign. Time to let the stars guide your style…


Vans have been a paradigm of coolness for more than 50 years, making them both timeless *and* trendy (just like your old soul, Aquarius). Rock these whether you’re out seeing your fave band perform or you’re home and cleaning your room on a Sunday afternoon. The holographic, checkered style pairs perfectly with everything from ripped denim and a leather jacket to your fave leggings and a hoodie.


For a Pisces girl as kind and compassionate as you, there’s nothing more important than giving back. Look good doing so while slipping into these chunky vegan sneakers and feel good knowing that TOMS have helped support more than 94 million people around the world. Part of your purchase goes to providing shoes, sight, safe water and more to populations in need. 


These Nike Air Jordans (one of Skai’s personal faves) are mega bold, super sporty and a whole lotta extra…just like you, Aries. Your weekends are packed with HW, hobbies, extracurrics and time with friends, so throw on your Jordans with a pair of black jeans and a tank and don’t be afraid to shine. Confidence looks good on you—you got this, babe! 


Simplicity is back in style, and you’re rocking it, Taurus queen. Throw on a pair of these white Classic Reeboks with mom jeans and a graphic tee, wear them to school or out with friends on the weekend and bring on the casual-chic vibes. Relaxed, chill and trendy, these sneaks are a must-have staple for any Taurus’ closet.


You’re sweet sometimes, spicy other times, Gem. One day you’re totally content to stay in the status quo, the next you’re pursuing a brand-new adventure. But don’t worry—no matter how much you grow and change, these Converse low-tops are the constant you need in your life. Keep ‘em clean or grab a pen and doodle your dreams to make them your own, then wear with everything from your best denim to flowery babydoll dresses.


You’re imaginative and intuitive, Cancer, the kind of girl who’d make an *amazing* artist, performer or philosopher. Channel all those artsy vibes with these spotted calf-hair high-tops from Madewell. With a platform sole and spunky print, they’ll add a high dose of drama to all your M-F looks—because why not express yourself?


You’re extra and you know it—and Leo, that’s *totally* okay. You’ve been working super hard in school lately, and it’s time to love yourself like Kanye loves Kanye and treat yourself to a pair of Yeezys. Shine like the star you are and pair with some standout streetwear—a monochromatic tracksuit is a great place to start—and hit the hallway like it’s Fashion Week.


Virgo, you want a shoe that’s as earthy and practical as you are. Slip on these classic Keds as you head to yoga and still look stylish when you grab tea with your girls afterward. Complete your low-key cool look with black leggings and a pastel tank knotted at your waist. 


You always work hard and play hard, Libra, and this year is all about channeling your go-getter vibes: Take that leadership position! Apply for that amaze internship! Text your crush! Step into sneakers that let everyone know you’re poised for success: On-trend Adidas Superstars that can function as *your* personal power suit, especially when paired with a blazer and jeans. Chic!


Own your quirks and others will follow, Scorpio. Why fit in when you can walk your own path? Puma’s Roma Classic Dolce Vita sneaks are the *perf* choice for you: Sure to stand out from the crowd in the pretty pastel shade, yet comfy enough to help you stay focused whether you’re intent on acing algebra or finishing that novel this year. Pair these mint green sneaks with everything from flowy sundresses to your hardworking Levis.


Sag, you are always buzzing with enthusiasm for others—and it’s time to show the world what you’re made of. Take off with the ball on the soccer pitch, saunter up to the blackboard to solve for X or stand up to a faux friend in these Nike Air Zoom Pegasus kicks. The courage is within you, so echo it in your fashion. Pair with pastel joggers and a denim jacket. 


You love a long, dreamy walk spent obsessing over your crush or sharing deep thoughts with your BFF, Cap. Grab a pair of Allbirds for the stroll: They’re cool, cushiony and celeb-endorsed (Noah Centineo has been spotted rocking a pair, BTW). Try ’em on with a statement-making pair of coveralls and wait for the compliments to roll in.
