Ah, spring. It’s the season for fresh blooms, sunny brunches and leisurely hot girl walks in the park. Oh, and a bit of sole-searching. We’re talking about finding the perfect pair of sneakers to complete your springtime lewks.


Scroll on for a bunch of new season styles that look as fly as they feel.

White sneakers: a classic for a reason.

If you’ve always wanted a pair of white shoes but haven’t been game, consider your prayers answered. Reebok’s Classic Leather sneakers feature a soft suede overlay that gets better with every wear. 

Looking for a white sneaker with some flair? ASICS’ EX89 is a trusty everyday sneaker that blends heritage and modernity like a boss. A tribute to the 1989 GEL-EXTREME™, designed by Toshikazu Kayano, it features a nifty cityscape-inspired outsole pattern we love. 

If you’re not on the New Balance train, it’s time to hop on. Their 530’s are cool-as-a-cuke kicks that feature a breathable mesh upper for comfort and synthetic overlays for durability. Note the supportive ankle collar, grippy rubber outsole and iconic ‘N’ logo on the sides. 10/10. 

The black sneakers you need.

More of a fan of darker sneakers? We hear you. This season black sneakers are having their moment, and, TBH, we’re here for it. As practical as they are cool, you really can’t go wrong. 

Fun yet refined, New Balance’s 9060 V1 hit the nail right on the head. Featuring wavy lines and scaled-up proportions, the 9060 provides a modern twist on the futuristic visible tech aesthetic of the naughties. Y2-slay. 

Runners rejoice! Saucony’s Triumph 21 Womens is a premium shoe that excels on long, easy and tempo runs. Its innovative PWRRUN+ foam midsole and streamlined flat-knit upper construction provide unbelievable protection and comfort. What a win.  

Orange you glad you spotted these? We’re so here for this head-turning colourway from Nike. The sleek AF Tuned range is all about next-level style and performance – you won’t be disappointed. 

Dynamic springtime kicks. 

Let’s kick things up a notch. 

adidas' Gazelle Bold are a springtime dream. These sporty sneakers are stacked three layers high, offering a fresh twist on the 70s court favourite that was the OG Gazelle. The serrated stripes add visual interest, while the metallic-gold emblem provides a heritage touch.

With a classic silhouette, mixed materials and understated futuristic features, Nikes’ eye-catching Air Huaraches are sure to elevate your signature style. Your feet will appreciate the stretchy fabric and supportive caged heel. 

Designed for handball and adopted by the streets, adidas Originals Handball Spezial sneaks scream 80s flair. Lace them up for a dose of retro chic and a burst of vibrant colour. They’re something Spezial, indeed.
