To say that we have a sneaker obsession here at Who What Wear sounds dramatic (I know), but it actually may be a bit of an understatement. Peek into the closet of any one of our editors and you'll find everything from sleek, classic sneakers to statement pairs in bold colors or prints. Personally, I have more pairs than I can count on two hands—I just can't get enough of comfortable shoes. But with aspirations for a sneaker-rich wardrobe, cost is a part of the equation. Finding great sneakers under $100 is key.
So what are the styles on our radar in 2019? We tapped Rank & Style for a little insight on the under-$100 sneakers causing the biggest buzz this year. Based on reviews, buzz, and sales, below you'll find the 10 styles on everyone's radar this year. Whether you're just looking for one pair, or building out your collection, these are what you need.

3. Adidas Superstars
