Winter is halfway over (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) and bright blue skies are far and few between. With Valentine's Day on the horizon, folks are slipping out of their more muted or even grayscale fits and finding more reasons to look better than ever. Of course, you can go the safe route and stick to monochrome sneakers, but if you're looking to change things up then a bit of color can take you far.

If all-black or neutral shoes are the equivalent of putting pep in your step, consider these colorful options the "knuck if you buck" of the sneaker world. From weatherproof silhouettes designed by Kiko Kostandinov to trusted classics from brands like New Balance and Maison Margiela, shop the best colorful sneakers below.

In essence, most sneakers are comfortable but few have built a following as much as New Balance's 990 series. The Absorb outsole paired with the mesh and leather and upper works together flawlessly.

What these Rick Owens' lack in a plethora of colors, it makes up for by being way larger than any other sneaker you own.

It's time to put those classic Stan Smiths down and unlock one of the final bosses from adidas' wide-ranging roster. Though the Hyperturf may be not a well-known silhouette, it was made to tackle the great outdoors and more.

Although these Replica's are the least colorful sneaker on this list, it's easily the one with the longest and most intriguing history behind them.

$285
Buy at Highsnobiety

We've previously labeled norda sneakers as Lamborghini's for your feet and for good reason, these hi-tech runners are precision engineered for speed. Their minimal design means that the shoes are equally suited for casual wear as they are for 10km runs, and this pair comes in a bright green hue dubbed "sulphur" for a colorful statement.

Nike x Tom Sachs General Purpose Shoe

There's been a lot of talk about how this sneaker is bland, with Tom Sachs even admitting it was made to be boring. However, in this yellow colorway, I'd argue it's a pretty fun shoe to look at.

HOKAPanelled Sneakers

Salmon pink and lime green aren't two colors I'd imagine to go well together, but this HOKA sneaker proves that they were made to be with one another. As if the first colorway of the Mafate Speed 2

Bright yellow kicks are not always the easiest to style, but the Nike Air Jordan 4 “Lightning” re-release should definitely be on your radar. You might be thinking what to pair with the kicks, but black, brown, or gray all work.
