Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have couples dressing down to a T—and this time the duo was spotted strolling NYC in none other than Converse sneakers, confirming our suspicions that pop-punk sneakers are officially trending. That's right—it's officially time to put on your fave Blink 182 playlist (I'm not judging if it's already in your recently played spots) and dig out your best throwback sneakers. But don't worry if you tossed yours out years ago—I'm happy to report you can scoop up Lively's exact sunflower yellow pair for less than $100—and yes, *every* size is in stock.

In case you've forgotten over the past 20 years, the sneakers are made from a breathable canvas fabric, perfect for the warm summer weather, with a functional lace-up style that can be adjusted to fit tighter or looser.


According to shoppers, they fit true-to-size, too—not to mention the style is unisex, with both men's and women's sizes listed on the site, so you won't be left guessing how to convert to your perfect fit. Buyers also rave over just how comfy they are, and appreciate their budget-friendly price. One reviewer writes: "I love these shoes! They're so comfortable, I love everything about them! The color, the design and the price!"

This sunny shade's sure to sell fast—but if you're more into neutrals you can also scoop up the style in the classic white style we all know and love. Either way, I suggest jumping on the celeb-approved trend now to enjoy the nostalgia all summer long.
