After spending several months cooped up due to the ongoing pandemic, it’s finally time to ease up a bit and go outside. As summer quickly approaches, it’s also time to reassess the wardrobe and find some new sneakers to fit the warmer months. As you shift from sweatpants and house slippers to shorts and low-tops, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best sneakers to rock during the summer months. Most are available at retail right now, although you’ll have to splurge at resale for a few of our picks.

Sure, you can (and should) grab at least one pair of white-on-white Air Force 1s, but the key to a strong summer sneaker rotation is variety. Whether you're an outdoorsman who needs breathability and traction or a DJ who wants to stunt on your crowd at the kickback, we’ve got you covered with some of the best shoes to add to your summer lineup now.
