We preach style, of course, but part of that will always rely on practicality. Especially now, when utilitarian designs dominate the world of fashion and sneakers, the importance of practicality is at an all-time high when it comes to picking your wardrobe. And, as the weather warms up and outdoor life slowly returns to our routine, a pair of lightweight summer sneakers from adidas has never felt more appropriate.

Lightweight sneakers are a go-to during summer for obvious reasons — they tend to be more breathable, and more outdoor activity calls for a less rugged footwear option. But, as well as that, summer sneakers should be more streamlined in order to style with your lighter summer wardrobe. We’re all for a huge, chunky sole, but it can look seriously out of place when coupled with shorts and a Cuban-collar shirt.

So, enter adidas’ ever-perfect summer sneakers. From new-age favorites like the adidas Ultraboost 21 to undisputed classics in the Campus 80 and Gazelle, all styles fall under the Three Stripes umbrella.

The adidas Ultraboost has been around for a little less than a decade, but it’s secured a spot in the hall of fame. The most recent generation of the sneaker sees a redesign that focuses on performance, but this all-white Ultraboost 21 is up there with the cleanest summer sneakers for everyday wear, too.

Nizza

In some ways, the adidas Nizza is the antithesis to the Ultraboost 21. Eschewing engineering and technology for utmost simplicity, this canvas runner in black and white is a carefree summer smash.

Campus 80s

We love Ultraboosts and we love adidas Climacool, so we really love the Ultraboost Climacool. Merging two adidas icons has, unsurprisingly, created something that looks a lot like a future icon.

It’s a performance runner, yes, but its slim profile and lightweight build make it a real option for everyday wear this season. With Boost cushioning to the forefoot and a rugged outsole, this runner falls into the utilitarian style that’s raging right now.

Gazelle

$80
Buy at adidas US

A Crew Yellow suede upper acts as the visual lead for the adidas Gazelle which fits our mood perfectly this season. As the adidas Samba steals headlines and celebrity foot space, the Gazelle is the underrated sibling for those who prefer the road less traveled.

Adizero Pro

A semi-transparent mesh upper and Carbitex carbon plate in the sole unit tell you all you need to know about the adidas Adizero Pro. It’s made for speed. But, to be honest, even if you’re lying in a park all day, the breathable uppers work a charm.

Futurenatural

One of the Three Stripes’ lesser-known silhouettes, the Futurenatural looks to organic forms as inspiration for its flowing silhouette. A high sole unit offers support and comfort while the knit upper keeps your toes at the right temp when it matters most.
