With summer fast approaching, nailing your look for the new season is crucial. Whether you’re into the latest developments in sneaker technology (totally a thing) or more of a retro guy, there’s something here to complete your summer look—and without sacrificing comfort too.
Check out some of the slickest, sickest sneakers coming your way.
adidas Originals NMD R1
We can all agree that the adidas Originals NMD were a game-changer: progressive footwear technology meeting classic adidas styling. They’re sleek and super-comfortable, and now more popular than ever. The NMD R1’s are available in black, grey, red and blue, and feature a stretch-mesh upper in an engineered distorted ‘glitch’ pattern.
Nike Air Presto Fly
A remake of the 2000 original, the Nike Air Presto Fly has a sock-like feel for ultimate comfort, and is made with a breathable and highly flexible upper. It’s a perfect shoe for staying comfortable when you’re out all day in the sun.
New Balance 247 Pack
The 247 from New Balance is becoming a bit of a classic, and the latest pack definitely doesn't disappoint. These feature tonal uppers, a gum outsole, and New Balance’s advanced REVlite midsole for maximum comfort.
Bata Bullet Hi Top Canvas
Originally designed in 1964, the Bata Bullets were the official sneaker of the Baltimore Bullets NBA team. This season sees the release of leather and canvas high and low-tops, available in black and white. The canvas version of this classic sneaker is perfect for keeping (and looking) cool this summer.
adidas Originals Stan Smith
The Stan Smith has been away for a long time, but now this classic design is back. Sticking closely to their original look, these retro adidas Originals have a premium leather upper with perforated three-stripe branding on the side, and white Stan Smith branding on the navy suede heel. The sleek finishing touches include white metallic lace loops and the signature Stan Smith branding on the tongue. These are a must-have for any lover of the retro look.
Vans Canvas Authentic Lite
The Canvas Authentic Lite takes the classic Vans low-top look, adds comfort and flexibility, and reduces the overall weight for a lighter, airier shoe. Comfort is the name of the game here – the sturdy canvas uppers, additional heel cushioning, and UltraCush Lite sock liners all contributing to a lightweight and comfy sneaker.
Jordan 4 Retro
A little history for you: this classic Tinker Hatfield-designed sneaker was originally worn by “His Airness” in 1989, and made famous by Spike Lee’s ‘Do the Right Thing’. Twenty-three years later, the Jordan 4 boasts the original cement colorway and a red Jumpman logo on the tongue. As well as its retro design, these sneakers are also incredibly comfortable thanks to the breathable mesh accents and air unit.
