It’s getting a little warmer. There’s no more snow on the ground. Baseball season just started. It might not feel like it just yet (this is Minnesota after all), but spring is upon us, and summer is right around the corner.
You know what that means? It’s time to put the boots and heavy winter kicks away, and break out new jawnz for your rotation. Sure, you’re going to have your heat ready to go year round, but there are a few kicks that scream summer, are easy to find, and deserve a spot in anyone’s rotation. Without further ado, here’s 3 must-have spring/summer shoes.
1. Comme Des Garcons PLAY Chuck Taylor Low.
Chucks (especially the white pairs) have always been a spring/summer staple, and the Comme Des Garcons PLAY model adds just enough steez to elevate the classic shoe to the next level. Get these, and keep them in heavy rotation all summer. They’ll be thrashed by the the time September rolls around..and they’ll still look dope.
2. Gosha Rubchinskiy Reebok Phase One Pro
These aren’t your grandma’s Reeboks, although they might look like they are at first glance. Gosha Rubchinskiy, the Russian designer who’s got everyone checking for him right now put his signature touch on a classic Reebok model, making them street-certified. You’ll be making power moves all summer with these on your feet.
3. Raf Simmons Stan Smith
Pastel colors are all the rage now. Raf Simmons knows this. His ash-pink colored Stan Smiths are on trend and on point, and if you can afford to cough up the dough for them, you’ll have a pair that’ll be turning heads all summer (and getting better with wear too).
