Here Are the Best and Brightest New Sneakers for Spring

Though we all might be dreaming of sandals, the harsh reality is that we’re not quite there yet. Thankfully, there are a plethora of options for the days when even a kitten heel feels like an insurmountable challenge. Cue spring’s most colorful sneakers, in a range of styles from the tried and true “Dad sneaker” to the classic silhouettes essential to a laid-back Saturday. While one can, of course, pair these bold kicks with jeans, they are also a great way to dress down a floral dress or tone-on-tone suit. Check out the latest collaborations too. Gigi Hadid has teamed up with Reebok again, and this time around she’s designed her own update to a 1993 classic. Over at Superga, its classic styles have been given a playful update by of-the-moment Italian knitwear label Alanui. Another Italian brand, Premiata, is bringing its signature “stamped” sneakers to a wider audience through Net-A-Porter, where you can also score an exclusive colorway of Brandblack’s new styles. Being comfy never looked so good.


For those over the dad shoes and the Triple S, Balenciaga has launched a slimmer sneaker that still offers up that cool caché. Fittingly called the track shoe, it comes in a selection of hyper-bright hues.
