Whether relaxing in Richmond or sunbathing in St Ives, your staycation footwear matters.
It’s that time of year when warmer weather brings a welcomed wanderlust as we seek out some downtime somewhere new. You’ve packed your suitcase and are ready to hit the road. No matter where your travels take you, choosing the right sneaker is an important decision. From classic Swoosh styles to neutral New Balance, we’ve got you covered
The Shoe For Every Outfit
If you’re struggling for luggage space or looking for a solid allrounder, look to the Nike Dunk Low Retro Black White to get you through your staycation and beyond. A timeless silhouette, the Nike Dunk effortlessly pairs with a number of looks, from elevated essentials to statement pieces, perfect as you move from from coffee shops to corner pubs. With Nike Air cushioning concealed within a durable rubber sole, the Nike Dunk offers long-lasting support for action-packed days.
Get It White
Whether it’s a cultured trip to a city gallery or a sun-soaked day at the beach, the New Balance 550 is made for every adventure. Breathable and durable thanks to perforations and suede panelling, the retro-inspired New Balance 550 White Green delivers a pared-back aesthetic perfect for staycation styling.
Life’s A Breeze
When it comes to holiday footwear, a pair of slides is always a good idea. If you choose the Yeezy Slide Bone for your staycation, expect a premium summer-ready shoe that serves both fashion and function. The neutral bone colourway makes for an easy pairing with your current wardrobe, incorporating high-quality materials into the open-toed classic. As ready for the beach as the bar, the Yeezy slide incorporates an EVA foam into a rigid midsole, providing traction and impact protection for any terrain.
When shopping for your staycation sneakers, getting distracted by trends can stop you achieving an authentic look. Classic sneakers such as the Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘07 are the perfect upgrade to your rotation, maintaining a timeless allure. Thanks to a series of perforations housed on a crisp white upper, this legendary Swoosh style will keep you cool throughout your staycation.
A Staycation Statement
When looking for the perfect holiday sneaker, a cushioned sole and longevity are essential. For a staycation trainer with impact, try the Air Jordan 4 Seafoam Womens, pairing the performance-enhancing features of a basketball shoe with fashionable appeal and neutral wearability. A Nike Air unit in the heel offers cushioning alongside a padded collar for support, while a leather upper is punctuated with grid mesh panels for season-long breathability without sacrificing comfort.
Keeping a low profile
Hailed as the “It” shoe of the moment, the adidas Samba has weaved from subcultural appeal to the mainstream. An instantly recognisable design, the adidas Samba OG White Black offers some holiday-ready versatility. A textured gum sole provides traction for any activity, while a minimal design, complemented by Three Stripes detailing, ensures effortless styling. For inspiration, look to LA-based Sporty & Rich, whose collaborative take on the classic silhouette drew on the sneaker’s sporting heritage.
