Not long ago I was heading to the gym (in my favorite joggers) and needed to run an errand beforehand- but I completely forgot until I was on my way.
This meant I wasn’t prepared with one of my usual “out on the town” outfits, and if you’re like me and like to look presentable while out in public, you understand my dilemma. Oops!
Luckily, I had a cute pair of strappy sandals in my car. I quickly swapped my generously loved (aka, very worn) gym sneakers for my sandals for a cute and on the fly fashionable jogger outfit!
Proof that shoes can save the day, or at least your look!
I’m about to show you how you can rock your favorite shoes with your favorite joggers, plus per request from some of my lovely readers we’re going to go over:

Best Shoes to Wear With Black Joggers
Setting aside the idea that joggers are only athletic or athleisure wear, it’s really easy to pair shoes with them. Take a look at this first pair of black joggers and high top sneakers. Simple, right? They look great together.
You can recreate this look by wearing a white tank or tee tucked into your black joggers and layering a denim jacket overtop! She accessorized this look with an oversized black bag, and a bandana tied into a scarf.
If you’re loving the bandana with this look and need some inspiration, you can check out my How to Wear a Bandana post!
I love this look for a day out! She’s wearing cheetah printed heels with her black joggers and a lace trimmed tank tucked inㄧso dainty, yet fierce! A couple simple accessories added, like a nice clutch with gold accents pair well with some gold jewelryㄧso easy!
I’m an enormous fan of wearing heels out in all seasons, which you’ll see throughout my posts. This outfit would look stellar with a pair of vibrant colored heels, which creates fun opportunities to match accessories. Red heels with a red bag? Yes please!
Not only are stilettos stylish with joggers, but wedges would be perfect as well!
This look screams summer to me. The combination of the black tank and joggers with the straw hat and wedge gladiator sandals looks comfortable and ready for some fun in the sun.
A feature that makes joggers such an awesome pant to wear (beside the comfort factor) is that it gives us room to show our ankles and wear shoes that may have straps around them like these ones.
Best Shoes to Wear With Khaki Joggers
Khaki is an underdog in the fashion world, being most commonly worn in the workplace. This outfit is a perfect example of how cute khaki can be worn! She’s wearing a black crop tee and black boots, accessorized with a matching black bag and a chain! Hello 90’s!
I’m a huge lover of my Dr. Marteen boots, which would be perfect to wear with your khaki joggers!I know this isn’t a joggers look, but it’s a good example of how well khaki and the boots go together. Check out my Striped Turtleneck Top outfit where I’m wearing a khaki skirt with Dr. Marteen boots!
Doesn’t this look comfortable? Black does something magical with khaki, so you see here that she’s wearing black high top sneakers and a black crop sweatshirt with her khaki joggers.
I promise, I’ll show you khaki pants with other colors (white gives this neutral goddess-like look that I’ll show later in this post), but this pair of heels was too good to not share.
This is proof that you can wear comfortable pants with your favorite heels and look fabulous!
Best Sneakers to Wear With Joggers
Joggers originally were meant for athletic wearㄧhence the name. Once athleisure became the best thing since sliced bread, it was only destiny for joggers to follow suit.
I love these joggers with wedge adidas sneakers! The addition of the leather jacket and bag make this a look you can feel confident and comfortable in.
Camouflage made a comeback in a big way in the last year, so it is only even more awesome to have camo joggers! These white sneakers really make this look POP. Can you imagine wearing boots or heels with these joggers too? They would look great!Here's one of my OOTD looks that shows my favorite pairs of white sneakers which would also look awesome with this look!
Remember the khaki joggers earlier? Say hello to nude! I love these nude Nike sneakers and how she pulled this whole monochromatic outfit together.
I can’t decide if the color of the sneakers dresses the look up, or if it’s the knit sweater, but whatever it is it works beautifully!
Other Shoes to Wear With Joggers
I can’t resist this perfect daytime jogger look! She’s wearing metallic tennis shoes and is pulling the neutral beige/ taupe hues in with her jacket and purse.
This is a gorgeous way to dress up your joggers! Studded point toe heels give this look an edge that deserves to be worn for a summer night out on the town!Imagine wearing a pair of colored heels with this look to give it that extra, “wow,” factor! Check out one of my favorite pairs of red heels in this Leopard Crop Top outfit (which would also look great with joggers)!
Adding to the night on the town collection, these black pumps work perfectly with her blue velvet joggers and patterned blazer. Strappy heels would also look great here!
Summer’s favorite shoe, cute sandals, look amazing with joggers. Sandals are a great way to take joggers a step up from athleisure while still remaining casual and cute!I have a great pair of white sandals that would be adorable with a pair of joggers, check them out with my Yellow Blazer Set outfit!
Ah, the sneaker-wedge. A fun way to wear the best of both worlds, which looks great with joggers. Wedges, like pumps and other heels, are awesome at elongating the leg so it is only fitting to keep the athletic inspiration while rocking some heels with your joggers!
Last, but certainly not least, joggers with slip on flats! This jogger look would be perfect with heels, boots, sandals, or sneakers, but I wanted to show how cute a pair of flats look with them.
She’s rocking this out on the town casual look with green joggers, a black shirt, and denim jacket, which is really a great color combination. But these metallic flats are super cute and really give this outfit some flare!
Like I said earlier, I’m a big fan of heels. You’ll see me wear my favorite pairs with any type of outfit so I love what the heels do to dress up these joggers- especially the studded pair up there!
Shoe choice is an enormous factor in dressing up or dressing down your outfit, and as you can see, joggers do excellent either way.
