We all love a new pair of treads and there’s no better time than summertime to add to your sneaker collection! Bearing in mind practicality, comfort, versatility and of course aesthetics, we’ve picked our top 5 sneakers which are perfect for these summer months as well as outline the reasons why they deserve a place in your warm-weather rotation.


Jordan 1 Low Arctic Punch

Let’s kick things off with a legendary and iconic sneaker. The Jordan Brand may have been around since the 1980’s but it is as desirable now as it ever has been, and sales continue to soar. This rendition consists of a purple and white base, overlays of pink, and purple Swoosh logos on both laterals as well as the classic features such as the premium leather upper, perforated toe box, wings logo on the heel and the Nike emblem on the tongue. These sneakers are sure to grab attention whilst complimenting any neutral or monochrome summer outfit.


Jordan 1 low to my first coach

Whilst the Jordan 1 Low ‘To My First Coach’ is a relatively new release, we’re sure it’s a future classic due to a hugely appealing design and colourway, as well as the sentimental reasons behind the creation. Dedicated to Jordan's mother for her influence in his athletic abilities, this low instalment of a series which features the "Sail/White-LT Zitron" colour scheme as well a leather Jordan logo silhouette hangtag that reads "Thank You" on one side and "To My First Coach" on the other side, is an ideal summer silhouette. With a colourful colourway consisting of white, blue, yellow and peach, these sneakers are sure to complete any summer outfit, and provide a great look with long or short bottoms.


Nike Dunk UNC

The Nike Dunk resurgence is well and truly underway, and we have seen some fantastic colourways hit the market this year, all of which have been an instant sell out. Whether it be colourways targeted at men or women, there is a Dunk for everyone. One of this year’s most sought-after Dunks is the ‘University Blue’ or ‘UNC’ for short, which consists of a clean and iconic colourway and has proven to be a particularly popular colour palette. White leather covers the base, while powder blue overlays are present throughout the upper. We get the feeling these sneakers were specifically designed for the summer months and they would certainly compliment your summer outfits.


Easter Dunk

Another Dunk to feature on our list is one which was released to celebrate Easter, but we think they’re a perfect summer silhouette for the ladies. The Dunk has fast become Nike’s best-selling sneaker and this colourful rendition predictably continues to be in particularly high demand. With a crisp white leather base, contrasting overlaying panels which differ in colour from the left and right shoe, these are sure to make you stand out whilst brightening up any summer outfit. The vibrant colour schemes consist of purple, green, pink, and blue with splashes of yellow on the tongue, heel, and sole. A somewhat bold statement piece, we love what Nike has done with this Dunk and there’s surely no better time to cop a pair than summertime!


Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Pearl

Following the releases of the Ash Blue and Ash Stone colourways, Yeezy extended the Ash theme with the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Pearl. A classic and stylish design that we are all familiar with, it’s the colourway that sets these Yeezy’s apart and make them an ideal summer sneaker. The two-tone construction of cream and tan complete the upper half while white and black complete the lower portion. A tan mesh stripe runs across the lateral while a white gum Boost sole adds further style as well as ensures extreme comfort. Popular amongst both men and women, it’s little wonder these sneakers are in such high demand, particularly during these summer months.
