With Balenciaga, Junya Watanabe, and Kiko Kostadinov
These days it’s important to feel good in whatever way you can—sometimes it’s enough just to know that flowers are growing somewhere. Even better if you can see them on your daily walk. What else feels good? Looking down at a fresh pair. Here are some suitably vibrant sneakers to catch your eye and match the spirit of spring.
Junya Watanabe Pink Buffalo London Edition Synthetic Leather Sneakers
London street style meets high fashion in a collab that seems good enough to eat—cotton candy, bubblegum, watermelon, sorbet, rosé. Just spring things.
Reebok Classics White and Blue 96 Sneakers
Blue is rare in nature. All the more reason to wear it on your shoes—just like the name says, it’s a 96 classic.
Balenciaga Yellow Triple S Sneakers
The OG ambassador of the chunky sneaker revival is back, keeping it mellow in acid yellow.
Li-Ning Beige and Pink Sunchaser Sneakers
The laces on these Sunchaser sneakers tell us that “anything is possible”—fitting, somehow.
Kiko Kostadinov Blue and Yellow Asics Edition Gel Kiril Sneakers
You can’t go wrong with a harlequin motif in two primary colors—sunny yellow and sky blue.
Converse Purple Chuck 70 High Sneakers
A lilac on foot is worth one less in the bush, unless you’re taking nothing but pictures and leaving nothing but footprints, in these pastel purple Chucks.
Marveling at Wales Bonner, Converse, and Simone Rocha from Afar
Working isolated from one another and with little else to do, the SSENSE editors fantasize about what they would wear if this really were all just a dream.
Wales Bonner Red Crochet Stripes Lounge Pants
Not to be too (tightly-wound and panicked) Chas Tenenbaum, especially right now, but aren’t these exactly right? Loungewear that still feels a little bit tailored.
Engineered Garments Navy Cotton Overalls
Over the past two weeks I've tried on a lot of hats. Right now I'm a gardener, meticulously tending my plants, propagating from cuttings, potting and repotting, my kitchen covered in soil.
Simone Rocha Off White Egg Bag
Not sure what kind of egg this is, but it seems to come from a place I’ll dream about visiting.
Levis Vintage Blue Denim Type 2 trucker Jacket
Forget about breaking in new boots or stiff trousers and relax with a trusted vintage classic—best tossed over an old hoodie, or the pyjama shirt you haven’t been able to part ways with.
Sacai Multicolor Globe Bag
A handbag that says: "Imagine all the people, sharing all the world."
Julia Heuer Orange and Multicolor Peter Print Lee Blouse
A colorful print that can hold your attention for minutes (or even better, hours) is a welcome distraction.
Converse Black One Star Criss Cross Sandals
While staying indoors at home calls for new modes of creativity, why not revisit old favorites? Take ballet, for instance, and try an online workout. Or better yet, kick back with a double feature of Center Stage and Save the Last Dance. Leave the pointe shoes to the pros and slip into some (much more comfortable) chunky slippers to channel early aughts off-duty ballerinas.
Eckhaus Latta Yellow Three Dogs Hoodie
Just three pups, hanging out on a hoodie the color of sugar cookies. Life's true comforts, all in one place.
From Gucci, to Converse, to Nike
Forget a “new you,” what’s the best thing about a new year? New shoes, duh. It’s time to make space for 2020’s latest drops, ‘cause if there’s one thing that’s certain about the future, it’s sneakers.
Gucci White Ultraspace Sneakers
Go anti-gravity with Gucci. Climbing mountains is easiest when there’s nothing holding you down, and these Ultraspace sneakers will have you bouncing to Mars faster than Elon Musk can say “satellite.”
Adidas Originals Black ZX 4000 4d Sneakers
“I WANT” and “I CAN” decorate the sides of these sneakers, the perfectly punchy mantras to carry you into the new year, new you.
Nike Multicolor Daybreak QS Low Sneakers
These daybreak sneakers mimic the color of a sunrise—warm gold, burning scarlet, and fluffy marled cloud. Swoop in for the kicks you can slip into every morning.
Off-White Multicolor Arrows Sneakers
Complete with trademark zip tie, X marks the spot on these multicolor sneakers. With accents in fluo and fuschia, the arrow on these proves that the only way to move this year is forward.
Vetements White and Black Reebok Edition Spike Runner 200 Sneakers
Zebra print gone askew, these Spike runners are a new spin on a sportswear stalwart. Arty or animal kingdom, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be kicking up dust.
Converse Green Chuck 70 High Sneakers
Put your best Chuck forward in a hue that seems to symbolize the frosty time we have to wait until the first green appears. A subdued and subtle rendition of one of the most iconic sneaker silhouettes—green is something you can’t help but notice.
New Balance Navy 574 Sneakers
Purveyor of everybody’s favorite Dad sneakers, New Balance delivers the 574 in a new colorway. A classic style in navy, gray, and turquoise.
