Here Are 6 Monochrome Sneakers You Can Buy Right Now

HYPEBAE editors have picked their favorites.

No matter if you identify yourself as a minimalist or a maximalist, you’ll always need at least a pair of monochrome kicks in your sneaker rotation. Why? The tonal color scheme makes it incredibly easy to pair with any simple and clean outfit, while at the same time able to amp up bold, head-turning ensembles that others might prefer.

As we transition from summer to fall, we’ve curated a list of must-cop monochrome sneakers that you should be adding to your shopping cart. Read on to check out all of our editors’ picks.

For more shopping guides like this, take a look at our round-up of the six pink sneakers you need for literally every occasion.

Fenty PUMA by Rihanna Cleated Creeper “Puma Black”

Fall is all but officially here, which means it’s time to go back to black (although truth be told that’s pretty much the only color I wear regardless of the weather, because New York). Spring and summertime pastels were…cute, but ‘tis the season to go dark. Rihanna would agree, as she just dropped her Fenty PUMA Cleated Creeper in an all-black colorway. The Creeper became as iconic as she is after only releasing last year, and with an extended killer midsole, she’s made them bigger and badder — pretty apropos for RiRi. Cop these for $195 USD now at select PUMA accounts, such as HBX. — Ashley Haines

Reebok Classic Leather II “Shell Pink”

There’s something about pink that still calls out to me. It may be overdone and about to be replaced by rose gold or copper, but I still hold it near and dear. The new Reebok Classic Leather II is right up my alley – the “Shell Pink” colorway is simultaneously nude too, so I can match with my neutral lipsticks. The leather and patent leather upper is glossy just like lip gloss. The rose cloud then descends down to the midsole too. Back-to-school sneakers be damned, this one will last you all winter long. Shop yours for $155 USD now at Titolo. — Lily Chen

adidas Originals Stan Smith “Icy Blue”

At first sight the adidas Originals Stan Smith “Icy Blue” stole my heart. Its sky-like hue is the perfect complement for my subtle and minimal wardrobe. The Stan Smith silhouette is flattering on almost everyone and this pastel cover takes it to new heights. This pair isn’t for you to wear every day, however. It’ll attract the attention and envy of all your friends and those you pass by. Whip ‘em out when you want to make a statement without saying anything at all. Priced at $90 USD, you can pick these up now at ASOS. — Esiwahomi Ozemebhoya

Vans Old Skool “Frost Grey”

The thing about grey is that it’s an unbearably easy shade to mix and match with your fall wardrobe. Sorry, millennial pink. As someone who only sees articles of clothing in two colors – namely black and black – this “Frosted Grey” version of the Vans Old Skool is perfect for pairing with monochromatic essentials. On this particular rework, the upper is constructed with a rough suede that yields an incredibly chic effect when combined with the mono tonality of the shoes. Rounding off the look is, of course, the Old Skool’s iconic rubber waffle sole, also rendered in grey. Conclusion: make this pair your new go-to set of Vans. You can now purchase these for $70 USD at select Vans stockists like OFFICE. — Zarah Cheng

Nike Air Max LD-Zero “Pearl Pink”

The older I get, the more I realize that comfort is key when it comes to personal style. While trying to keep it chic, I also make sure that the shoes I wear are actually good for my feet. Enter Nike‘s super sleek Air Max LD-Zero. The Hiroshi Fujiwara-designed silhouette sees a mesh and leather upper and is finished with 360-degree Air Max cushioning. This particular iteration comes in the prettiest “Pearl Pink” colorway, which adds a girly touch to any fall outfit you might be wearing. And guess what? The sneaker is so popular it’s been called for a restock earlier this summer — so cop yours before it’s gone again. Shop these for $200 USD at asphaltgold. — Teresa Lam

adidas Originals Stan Smith Bold “Tactile Green”

Green isn’t really a color that appears in my wardrobe – or sneaker rotation – ever, but I’d make an exception for the all-over pastel adidas Originals Superstar Bold in “Tactile Green.” The toned-down colorway, perforated Three Stripe branding and minimal-yet-luxe details on these soft suede beauts make for a sneaker that speaks volumes whilst being oh-so-demure at the same time. Besides, the subtly-stacked sole gives an extra sneaky boost of height, making these babies perfect for both day and night-time escapades. This is one minty-fresh sneaker to rule them all. Retailing at $130 USD, you can cop this pair at select stockists like Titolo. — Nav Gill
