As the summer winds down now is the time to sport all your favorite low-top silhouettes. This week’s top #hypebaekicks posts mix late summer footwear and early fall favorites for ladies to choose from. Don’t worry, a few of these options you’ll still be able to cop. Warm weather releases are still dropping like the Air Max Plus in “Guava Ice” and Manhattan Trainer in “White/Pink.”

The chunky sneaker trend shows no signs of slowing down but ladies have been opting for sleeker sneakers this month. Classic forms like the Air Max 1 and Chuck 70 are updated with new graphics to match the logomania trend in streetwear. To pair with these releases we’ve seen track pants, skirts and dresses popping up as the most popular clothing items. Feel free to wear what you’d like but remember that comfort is key.

Below you can find our top five Instagram posts that serve up a bit of sneaker style inspo.

Kicks Featured: KITH x Coca-Cola x Converse Chuck 70 in “White

Editor’s Note: KITH’s Coca-Cola capsule has to be one of the top Converse collaborations of the year. The soft drink graphics complement the basic white of the shoe’s upper. The specialty KITH accents on the midsole and inner lining take this release to the next level.

Kicks Featured: Nike Air Max 1 “Just Do It

Editor’s Note: “Just Do It” is a phrase that all sneaker lovers revere. The phrase serves as the motivational slogan for Nike’s footwear and apparel. Catching onto the logo trend, Nike covered the Air Max 1 and a handful of its other staple sneakers in eye-catching graphics. Orange and black hues are used to add contrast to the white sneaker which we think will pass for wear post-Labor Day.

Kicks Featured: New Balance 574 in Pink and Blue

Editor’s Note: Pastel kicks are not only reserved for the spring. The blush pink tone on New Balance’s 574 is too cute to resist. A bit of blue and true pink tones on the rear add a flirty flair to the comfy runners.

Kicks Featured: Reebok Daytona DMX “Spirit White

Editor’s Note: The Daytona DMX is one of PUMA’s most forward-thinking silhouettes. It holds the form of a traditional basketball sneaker while mixing in dad sneaker design elements. The “Vital Blue” stripes that appears on the upper and midsole is our favorite feature.

Kicks Featured: Nintendo x Vans Sk8-Hi

Editor’s Note: It’s rare that we see a deadstock pair of kicks from a 2016 collaboration. Vans covered its most popular footwear in video game-inspired graphics in honor of Nintendo‘s classic games. The sole of the Sk8-Hi reads “GAME OVER!” stirring up childhood memories. The brand’s Form Stripe is replaced with the Super Mario landscape for those who want to rep the cult-favorite character.
