Sneakers are arguably the most versatile item in anyone’s wardrobe. Yet in recent seasons, we’re seeing fresh, bold looks coming out of the most reputed fashion houses. Take for instance how Balenciaga kicked off fresh demand for the “dad sneaker” after they catapulted the aesthetic into the spotlight with the triple S sneaker.

This new wave has also shifted the limelight from classic white shoes to more adventurous sporty ones. Complete your athleisure fashion look with any of these coveted sneakers drops that you should cop this May.
