The cutest sneakers you absolutely need this season

Want to level up your shoe game this season? Look no further! Whether you're riding bikes with your friends, having a picnic at the park or going out to dinner, sneakers should be your shoe of choice. You can easily dress them up or down (aka style them with all your cute late spring/early summer fits). Not to mention, they're *super* comfy and practical.


Converse, $95

If you're loving the coastal cowgirl aesthetic, you should add these shoes to your closet rn! They're a more polished version of the signature high-top Converse we all know and adore. The mismatched patchwork helps add a vintage feel. Plus: the floral pattern is perfect for capturing those spring and summer ~vibes~. Try wearing with your fave cutoff jean shorts and a white baby doll top.  

New Balance

PacSun, $90

Calling all sporty street style lovers: These sneaks are definitely for you. New Balance shoes are known for being both comfy and high-quality. These are super versatile and are ideal for all your warm weather adventures. And on top of all that, we can't resist the light blue accents! Style with an oversized graphic tee and biker shorts or a crop top and baggy bottoms.


Vans, $65

The Vans checkered print is classic...didn't everyone have that black and white pair in 2018? Well, these timeless kicks are back and better than ever! Pastel colors are ah-mazing for spring and summer, and we love this pretty lilac hue. Bonus: you can easily slip them on and off when you're in a rush.


Veja, $185

If you're wanting to upgrade your basic white sneakers, try these. Vejas have recently become popular, and tbh, we get the hype. The velcro straps make putting them on *super* easy (time to say bye-bye to tangled laces). The gold detail makes them dressier, so they look adorbs with a flowy sundress.


Reebok, $90

Elevate any outfit with these pastel sneakers from Reebok. This color combo couldn't be any cuter for sunny days. Over the past year, Reebok has made a comeback (and we understand why they're ruling the world of athleisure). The brand may be known for being sporty, but you can dress these up with a slouchy romper or some overalls for the ultimate cool-girl look.
