The sale prices vary, but we’re pretty sure you’re going to be happy with the steals for yourself and others (including some of our favorite picks for the guys in our like, including the ON Cloudflow sneakers and Nike React Pegasus Running Shoes, both of which are on major sale).


1. On Cloudflow Running Shoe

The zero-gravity foam makes for a supportive and incredibly comfortable sole for running, weightlifting or just wearing every day. The sleek look and lightweight feel are perfect for making your athleisure fits and matching sets look hot this summer.


2. Adidas Swift Run Sneaker

These white sneakers have a great bounce for running and walking thanks to the EVA sole and pronounced heel. They’re sporty and cute, and this clean white color couldn’t be chicer.


3. Nike Free Metcon 4 Training Shoe

The Flexible Nike Free technology makes these shoes ideal for agility workouts. From complex circuits to your long run days, they really give you a supportive base with a lot of comfort. Our favorite part? The flywire cables hold your laces secure no matter what.


4. Hoff Houston Sneaker

Yes please, retro vibes. We love the throwback style of these mixed medium sneakers. The colors are nice and subtle, so you can wear them with many different outfits for an extra pop of color.


5. P448 John Sneaker

A black casual sneaker is a nice addition to your closet (and won’t get as dirty as your beloved white pairs). This comfy style from P448 has a smooth sole for comfort and metallic detailing for some unexpected edge.

nike platform

6. Nike Court Vision Alta Platform Sneaker

Classic Nikes are a must-have, especially these platforms. The casual-athletic vibes are great for throwing on with a basic sundress or a matching set for walking to yoga. The blue Swoosh is so pretty for summer—we are adding to cart immediately.


7. Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Platform Sneaker

If you’re an all-white everything kind of gal, these Chuck Taylors are right up your alley. You’ve probably owned a pair of classic Converses at one time or another, but these are a fabulously streamlined take on the classic kick (with a slight platform for added inches, too).


8. Vionic Leyo Sneaker

If the goal is comfort, these sneakers are it. From the cushioned insole to the sturdy outsole, they will make sure your feet are highly supported from all angles. They’re available in four colors, too.


9. Merrell Bravada Hiking Shoe

Hiking is not for the faint of heart, but if you love nothing more than to hit the trails, you need a pair of these Merrells. The knit upper is nice and breathable while the shock-absorbing midsole and high-traction outsole will keep your feet ready for any terrain.

slip ons

10. Vince Blair Slip-on Sneaker

Slip-ons are a great option for everyday wear. These are about as sophisticated as sneakers get and can be paired with workwear, dresses and everything in between.
