5 Sneaker Styles You’ll Live in All Spring and Summer
We live in the land of hoodies and yoga pants, where casual comfort is king. But that doesn’t mean we don’t want to stay on trend—as long as said trends don’t get in the way of our constant walking/biking/Dolores Park lounging. Lucky for us, easy-to-wear kicks are having a moment. So we rounded up the season’s top sneaker trends you’re bound to see everywhere this year. Keeping our feet stylish and happy? Now that’s something we’re down with.
Adidas. Nike. New Balance. These iconic brands are considered classics for a reason. No matter what the current trend, they never go out of style. Dust off those Converse high-tops that have been hanging out in your closet since the ’90s and then update your sneaker collection with one of these retro beauties.
Another throwback trend (thank you, Spice Girls) is in style again, but this time around it’s a tad more refined. Whether you choose to go sporty, menswear-inspired or confetti-colored, just be sure to look for a clean, minimal silhouette. And while you definitely won’t go for a jog in these platforms, they’re a great way to add a little height to your weekend brunch ensemble.
The all-white sneaker is here to stay, but if it feels too stark for your style, try muted tones (like sand and oatmeal) or pastels instead. These fancy leather kicks by Feit are a splurge, but they’ll mold perfectly to your feet over time. And if you’re as obsessed with Allbirds as we are, then you’re in luck. The wool runners that have swept the city have a brand-new sister, the Tree Runner, made from eucalyptus pulp.
Embrace your inner 8-year-old with some much-needed sparkle. Glittery sneakers are in, and they’ll guarantee you make quite an entrance no matter where you sport them. The shimmery design makes any outfit pop, and you can decide how big you want to go—either all in with these Keds x Kate Spade numbers or just a touch of twinkle in the form of a subtle sequined stripe.
