In the northern hemisphere, winter is finally over and warmer, longer days are on the horizon. For the sneakerheads amongst us, that means a chance to put our boots and heavier, weather-proofed shoes away and pull out some of our summer sneakers.

A summer rotation means different things to different people, though a general rule of thumb is that brighter colors and lightweight materials come in to play, because there’s nothing worse than your feet feeling like they’re in an oven. Usually that results in a lot of running shoes — designed be breathable and wick away sweat — being major players during the summer months.

Below, we’ve outlined some of the best, lightweight sneakers money can buy (at all budgets). So if you’re at home, wondering what you’ll be be throwing on when you’re off to the shops, on your feet all weekend, or at the park or lake, give our selection a scroll.
