We’ve got the top 5 (top 5, top 5, top 5, top 5 *drake voice*) HOTTEST simple sneakers to make your summer extra spicy.
Now, now… We’re not telling you all that wearing J’s is a bad thing for the summer. We’re not saying that at all. What we are stating is that there are way more options to choose from and these are our top 5 choices!
5. Adidas: Stan Smiths, $60
One word. Classic! This white trainer shoes have been top notch for years. It’s crispy, it’s clean and it partially goes with anything. Whether that be shorts and a tank or that seersucker suit you’ve been dying to sport, the Stan Smith’s will do justice.
4. Cole Haan: Grandpro, $130
Comfortable and breathable, the Cole Haan Grandpros have one hell of a style! They’re very sporty and come in all sorts of dope colors. Cole Haan is known for the innovation in comfort and with this shoes you won’t have to give up comfort for style. This is perfect for taking those summer road trips with your besties or flying out and making those pieces hit!
Another classic for you! If your parents were the rad or rebel kids in their high school, we bet they rocked these too. The checkerboards are an easy choice for the summer because of their slip on feature and simple mobility. Just think, when you hit the mall and you want to be fly. Put on your checkerboard slip-ons with a distressed Thrasher tee, ripped jeans and stunt on folks like your name was Birdman.
2. Cole Haan: 2.Zerogrands, $300
We did a post on the 2.Zerogrands last year (which you can check out here) and nothing has changed since we last expressed how amazing they are! Like we said before, Cole Haans are the masters of comfort but they are also the masters of creating the future! These shoes are so futuristic! They’re like Marty McFly, futuristic and should be added to your closet to keep you one step above the rest for your summer style.
