Tennis this, skateboarding that. Whatever your aesthetic, there’s a sneaker for you this summer. Classic white, bright colors or flashy metallics, choose your fighter. Even the chicest heels can get in the way of summer fun, so give your feet a break and opt for comfort this season. Sure, you’ll need a pair of flip-flops for a trip to the pool or the beach, but you’ll also need a pair of sturdy, stylish sneakers – and we’ve got you covered on that front.

Why not pair them with your favorite summer maxi dress or t-shirt and jewelry. The wonderful thing about sneaker culture is that there are so many options, and while everyone has them, we all wear them differently. In addition to collectible sneakers, we’ve gathered the best and most desirable sneakers to take you through the summer; see below.
