Celebrate Back-To-School With Fresh Sneakers
Remember when back-to-school meant you could pick out a new pair of sneakers? Well, you might not be able to get your mom to bring you to the mall this September, but you can still celebrate the changing season with a fresh pair.
Our favorite brands are dishing up some pretty slick trends, from updated throwbacks to futuristic brights to bring a dose of optimism to 2020. Pick a pair (or a few) that speaks to you.
High-Top Court Sneakers
Take the high road this season with sneakers that pay homage to basketball’s many takes on the high-top court style. Think canvas and rubber models of the ’60s to the extra-cushy, supportive staples of the ’80s. Of course, today’s looks have been updated with the latest sneaker technologies and aesthetics.
Style with shorts and calf-high socks to show off on warmer days, and pair with boot-cut jeans and a hoodie when the temps get cooler.
Throw it back to the ’80s and ’90s with old-school running shoes. Not only are these kicks incredibly comfortable, but they sport classic style with chunky silhouettes and color-blocked accents. Some might call them dad sneakers, but we aren’t mad at it. They go with absolutely anything from joggers to khakis.
If your shoes aren’t stopping traffic this season, you’re doing something wrong. This year may have been challenging, but we prefer to look on the bright side—literally. Pair neon yellow, pink, and purple styles with jeans and a neutral tee for a flash of color underfoot.
With a slim profile, these tailored low tops aren’t reinventing the wheel. They offer an understated look that can double as dress shoes, so you never need to step into a wing tip again. The keys are their neutral colors and sophisticated materials like suede and calfskin.
