It’s worth looking to the cold north if you want to add a touch of minimalist heat to your rotation this summer. For the cultivated sneakerhead with a little cash to burn, Scandinavia has regularly proved febrile territory. Quietly, brands like Axel Ariagato, Spalwart and Eytys have wormed their way into the wider fashion consciousness, while big hitters such as Acne Studios and Our Legacy make as much noise with footwear as they do apparel.

Time and again, the Scandi sneaker sphere dispels the myth that clean somehow equals boring. Need proof? Find 10 of our current favorites below.
