11 Not-So-Basic Sneakers To Wear All Spring And Summer

Time to give your all-white kicks a break.

Dressing for the warmer months of spring and summer is all about raising a few hemlines, breezy linen pieces, and all-white sneakers. While we can’t wait to start wearing it all, this season we’re taking a little hiatus from the latter to add some pops of color to our shoe game.

That’s not to say all-white sneakers aren’t a classic wardrobe staple, it’s just time to change things up. Trust us, giving your white Chucks or Air Force 1s a rest will actually have them stay white and bright due to the lack of wear. (Though, we won’t judge a pair of beat-up and worn-out white sneakers either.)

With that being said, we understand that most trendy sneakers are typically the ones that are very hyped with extremely limited releases that’ll most likely cost you a pretty penny to purchase on the resale market. Luckily, you don’t need to spend a fortune on cool colored kicks, because there are plenty of styles and options that are currently in stock and worth the purchase.

Up ahead, you’ll find 11 new pairs of sneakers from pattern high-tops to fun pastel trainers to add to your warm-weather footwear rotation.
