With lighter evenings and brighter days ahead, spring is once again influencing the direction of the footwear landscape. Pastel tones offer a much-needed dose of dopamine, while versatile styles, minimalistic designs and low-top collars are all must-haves for the warm weather. To help you prepare for the new season, we’ve rounded up six essentials from the industry’s key players to see you through spring and beyond.

Nike Dunk Low Light Violet Womens

One of this season’s most sought-after styles, the classic Dunk receives a pastel update with the Nike Dunk Low Light Violet Womens. Crafted with premium leather, the upper hosts exposed stitching, subtle branding and a lace-up fastening for a secure fit. Lightweight cushioning underfoot delivers comfort for all-day wear.

New Balance 550 White Green

A retro sneaker pulled from the Boston brand’s archives, the New Balance 550 White Green captures the colours of the season with a clean white base and crisp green accents. Drawing heavily on the ‘80s original, trademark ‘N’ branding dominates the sides and supple suede reinforces the toe box.

adidas Samba OG White Black

With the resurgence of classic models and retro silhouettes, the adidas Samba OG White Black is set to reign supreme this spring. Staying true to its football roots with Three Stripes branding and a gum sole, the monochromatic colourway makes it an essential for every event. Complete with a tongue tag and gold foil logos, add this Samba to your new-season rotation.

Air Jordan 4 Seafoam Womens

Part of Jordan’s SS23 collection, the Air Jordan 4 Seafoam Womens refreshes the basketball icon with muted green tones on the mudguard, eyestays and lining. Breathable cut-outs on the sidewalls are a must-have for the warm weather, while the textured tread provides grip on all terrains. 

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Bone

Widely regarded as one of the brand’s most wanted silhouettes, the Yeezy Boost 350 Bone masters versatility and timeless appeal. Boasting a pared-back colour scheme, a monofilament side stripe adds a see-through element to the minimalist design. To finish, responsive cushioning comes courtesy of the full-length Boost midsole and a pull tab provides easy on and off.

Air Jordan 1 Low Aluminum Womens

Endlessly wearable and versatile, the Air Jordan 1 Low Aluminum Womens showcases all the detailing you’d expect from Michael Jordan’s signature shoe. The heel is accented with a Wings logo, while an embroidered Jumpman icon adorns the tongue. Easily adaptable for any occasion, make room in your collection for this low-top AJ1.
