I dislike most everything about what’s happening in the world of sneaker trends right now: they’re so chunky and tricked-out and not appealing in any way I can relate to, and they make me feel like I don’t understand anything. The selection here today is a bit all over the place, but I think they’re all quite wearable, starting with this bright and happy pair of Tretorns.
I like the clean lines and strategic pop of pink on this Nike Airmax.
I just bought These Adidas kicks for my trip to Portugal, and several things about them excite me: the boss color combination, the old-school styling, and the height-enhancing platform sole.
The Nike Jester is a clever shoe—check out the lower-than usual swoosh and other bits of trickery—and a grey sneaker is so versatile.
Wool runners from Allbirds have a sort of modern classic look that I can get behind, and people swear by them.
This sneaker, by a brand called P448 that I’ve never heard of, is the closest to being a trendy sneaker that I’ve got in this lineup: it’s altogether clunky but weirdly chic, and has a wave sole that reminds me of Famolares of yore.
I don’t know that I would wear these, but I adore them.
I think the desert colors here are quite pretty.
