The weather is starting to heat up in the Northern Hemisphere, so it’s time to step into the sun in style. From So-Cal skate legends like the Vans Old Skool to icons of the NBA hardwood, there’s plenty of great sneaker options to keep you cool during the warmer weather.

Vans Old Skool

Vans Old Skool

It’s hard to beat a nice pair of Vans for the summer months. The very first silhouette to implement the iconic side stripe, the Vans Old Skool debuted on the decks back in 1977 – when it was simply known as Style 36. Still imbued with the sun-kissed state of California, it’s a staple of any rotation.

adidas Stan Smith

A classic model both on and off the tennis court, the adidas Stan Smith was named after the two-time Grand Slam singles champion. Originally built for performance, the silhouette quickly made a name for itself as a lifestyle option in the 1980s.

Yeezy Foam Runner

Originally spotted on North West back in 2019, the Yeezy Foam Runner continues to polarise the sneaker community. Manufactured with a unique, single piece of material that blends algae with EVA materials, the classic herringbone tread underfoot provides support.

For us, the Yeezy Foam Runner is a cosmic masterpiece.

New Balance 550

A long-forgotten hardwood sneaker from the 1980s, the New Balance 550 has received a lot of attention of late thanks largely to Teddy Santis’ Aime Leon Dore collaboration. Simple, clean and undeniably authentic, the NB550 goes a long way to legitimising any sneaker collection.

Air Jordan 1

Declared by Kevin Durant as the greatest silhouette in existence, the Air Jordan 1 Low carries all the hallmarks of its high-top predecessors, while shedding some size for the summer months. Sometimes overshadowed by its chart-topping sibling – the Dunk Low – the Air Jordan 1 Low is an undisputed classic in its own right.
