9 Summer Sneakers That Are As Comfy As They Are Cute

The sneaker trend is still going strong and we’re thrilled about it! Once confined to the gym, sneakers have become a lifestyle shoe that can go with most casual daytime looks. From running to the grocery store to an outing with friends, these styles are our favourite looks for the season. Pair them with ankle jeans, shorts, t-shirt dresses, and maxi dresses to stay on trend for spring and summer!

Lacoste Carnaby EVO Metallic ($140 at Lacoste): The slim profile with a subtle metallic colour gives a polished look that goes perfectly with a pair of ankle length jeans. Feminine and versatile. If you’re just starting out and wanting that one comfortable and simple white sneaker, check out Lacoste L12.12 Canvas style sneaker—it literally goes with everything.

RON WHITE Layton sneaker ($395 at Ron White Shoes): Ribbon and thicker ties are all the rage this season and while there are more exaggerated styles out there, we’re more comfortable with this luxurious sneaker that subtly nods to the trend. The hint of metallic is great if you want to add a bit of shimmer.
