What’s a shoe fanatic without a brilliant collection of sneakers? Everyone loves shopping for footwear and apart from the usual pumps, stilettos, brogues among others, we all love spending a good amount from our savings account on a fancy pair of kicks that can spruce up any outfit. This season, the international market is flooded with some stylish and versatile sneakers that we can’t stop eyeing. Pair it with distressed denims and graphic tee or add some funk to by wearing it with a dress, a cool pair of sneakers can never go wrong. While hunting for some footwear (and adding some to our wish list), we decided to compile a list of the best sneakers, that certainly needs to make its way into our wardrobes.
Nike Dunk Sky Hi
C’mon! Admit it. We all love the Nike Dunk Sky Hi collection. Every season, Nike surprises us with new colors and fabrics, making it difficult to choose just one favorite. If the Red or Blue dunks left you wanting for more, you will be delighted to see the new Coral dunks, or even the white, blue and purple ones. Oh! And did we tell you, we are totally lusting over the brand new leather dunk-sky hi? We saw them at the recently held Nike Press Preview and well, we couldn't have asked for a better eye candy!
A happy pair of canvas sneakers is perfect to add a vintage or school girl charm to your outfit. We came across the new Vans classic range called Brigata, which takes inspiration from nautical hues and elements. The range is divided into three types - Vans Brigata, C&C Brigata and the C&L Brigata - and couldn’t stop going gaga over it. If the basics like white, grey or black are your thing, then opt for a simple pair from the Brigata collection. Or if the nautical inspired hues are your thing, then go for the Brigata C&C range. If want to add a funky touch, go for the C&L range, which includes tonal laces and contrast liners. Who said canvas sneakers had to be boring white, eh?
Converse Cons Weapon Invader
Bring out the military diva in you and show off your attitude. Wear these cool Converse Weapon Invaders when you are all set to steal the show and invade the streets. Planning to head out in the night in these beauties? Well, get ready to shine, as the Weapon Invader has a glow in the dark outsole. The gold detailing provides the perfect finish to this strong and stunning pair.
Puma x Solange Wild Wonder Sneaker
Fun burst of colors and tons of metallic fun! Am I talking about a party? Nope! But one look at the beautiful Puma x Solange Wild Wonder collection sneaker and you can’t help but get your party mode one. Although this collection was launched last year, we continue our obsession with these babies. The fun silhouettes, textures, unique designs and the use of mesh underlays (perfect for summer) make this one a winner! Oh, and those graphic mid soles are the bomb.
And last but not the least! Here’s presenting the super lust worthy pair of sneakers this year.
Marc Jacobs fringed low-top sneakers
This stunning fringed slide-on pair is currently topping almost every shoe wish list. What’s not to like here? One look at that quilted detailing at the heel or the sophisticated fringe, and you will know what I am talking about. Since fringes is a much loved trend this season, this skate-inspired sneaker is definitely a must have if you can afford to splurge.
