The Sneaker Edit: 10 Sneaker Staples for the New Year

New kicks for a fresh start.

For this installment of The Sneaker Edit, we’re rounding up wardrobe staples to kick off your 2022 rotation. Minimalists may be interested in the vintage-inspired Nike Air Force 1 Mid Sculpt, the muted New Balance 327 in “Mushroom” and “Aluminum” and the OFF-WHITE™ Low Vulcanized Sneakers.

Printed kicks can be just as versatile as tonal options, see the Palm Angels leopard low-tops and the classic Vans checkerboard slip-ons — the “Rain Drum” colorway is chef’s kiss.

Retro-inspired models like the Nike SB Bruin and Reebok Omni Zone II look better as they’re worn-in, making them smart buys for the new year, while an avant-garde option in all-black adds a flex to the simplest fit— we’re eyeing the Feng Chen Wang x UGG sandal-boot hybrid.

For a sleek lifestyle sneaker, look no further than the Saysh One, the first silhouette from six-time gold medalist sprinter Allyson Felix‘s footwear brand.

Read on for 10 picks to add to your footwear lineup in 2022.
