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.
Rounding Up the Classics from Tony Hawk’s Go-to Skate Brand
When it comes to heritage skate brands, there’s nothing more affirming than a co-sign from a skate legend—in the case of Vans, it’s their recently announced brand partnership with Tony Hawk. Hawk’s first skate shoes in 1978 were Vans, proof that the label has been building legacies for over half a century. If any brand has earned the right to refer to their shoes as OG, Classic, or Authentic, it’s Vans, and it’s all here for you, too.
Vans Red OG Authentic LX Sneakers
When you think of Vans, it’s hard not to think of these classic lows in the most classic color: chill red.
Vans Off-White OG Classic Slip-On LX Sneakers
Damn Daniel or not, spring means it’s a good time to be back at it again with the white vans.
Vans Black OG Old Skool LX Sneakers
Black feels best worn slightly faded, making suede its perfect partner. The OG Old Skool weathers with every step you take, a wearable record of wherever you’re walking.
Vans Yellow and Green OG Sk8 Hi LX Sneakers
The Sk8 Hi means a taller shoe and upping ankle protection, too. In mustard-toned suede and canvas, these OGs are a splash of sunny yellow without being too in-your-face.
Vans Green Hairy Suede OG Era LX Sneakers
Suede is leather’s softer cousin—the higher the nap the fuzzier it becomes. These algae-blue Hairy OG lows make the classic cushy, upping texture without compromising ease of wear.
Radical conceptual designer Martin Margiela founded his namesake couture house in 1988 and quickly established himself at the forefront of the Belgian fashion avant-garde. The design team that currently heads the Maison has maintained the tradition of anonymity its founder established in his career-long refusal to grant interview or public appearances. Women's line MM6 presents a more casual, street-inspired take on the Maison's intellectual approach to luxury. Sportswear, clever graphic prints, sneakers, and geometric forms are always represented in its unexpected takes on urban basics.
Keep it Light with Dsquared2, Salomon, and Feng Chen Wang
Open your windows, let some air inside. Keep it light, airy, even revealing—we can all use some levity, even in our wardrobes. Think: mesh.
OAMC Pink & Blue Chem Tote
Missing the abandon of your middle school soccer field? Throw this over your shoulder—in a mesh knit reminiscent of a scrimmage pinny, the Chem Tote will never lead you offside.
Random Identities White Mesh Boxing Shorts
As much as we love a skirt moment, there’s something to be said for long, flowing shorts: “Yes, please.” Breathable mesh in delicate white makes for an elevated take on the seasonal staple.
Feng Chen Wang Blue Mesh Jacket
Studying in London means this designer has a degree in Spring-showers—feel the breeze.
Dsquared2 Off-White Mesh V-Neck Sweater
Take the synthetic technicality of mesh and make it raw—featured here in ecru cotton. For that 2020 vintage feel.
Salomon Blue XA-Comp ADV Sneakers
You won’t get far with wearability if you forget all about breathability, but these sneakers have got it covered with perforated details and mesh panelling. In a powder blue to match the sky, there’s no limit to how high you can climb in these.
From Gucci, to Converse, to Nike
