The Sneaker Edit: 10 Summer-Ready Kicks from Dior, Converse and Nike
In bold and minimal colorways.
As the coronavirus pandemic intensifies in some parts of the world and eases up in others, brands are forging ahead with summer releases, footwear included. The last month of summer will surely whizz by but in the meantime, HYPEBAE has rounded up the best warm-weather kicks for August’s installment of The Sneaker Edit.
Dior‘s popular B23 sneaker is fashioned into a casual slip-on style, featuring a spell-out logo in collaborator Shawn Stussy‘s signature font. Converse Japan launched a new service, White Atelier, allowing brides and grooms to design their own pairs of white high-top Chuck Taylors for their special day. Standing in sharp contrast to White Atelier’s all-ivory lineup, Nike’s N7 initiative launched an Air Max 90 translating the vibrant colors of plants used in Indigenous American culture. For those looking for an indoor and outdoor-appropriate shoe, adidas released its Adilette slide printed with a graphic of the adidas Superstar, creating a clever optical illusion.
