There’s a reason why pastels are included in trend lists season in, season out. It’s because they’re objectively attractive. While trends for the sake of trends drift in and out of the zeitgeist, things like tailoring, minimalism, and, obviously, pastels are perennially stylish.

Now that winter’s icy chokehold on our wardrobe is loosening, it’s the ideal time to tentatively welcome some color back into your daily looks. How better to do so than with pastel sneakers?

We’re not yet at the height of summer, so triple-white kicks might have to stay in the locker for some time, but pastel sneakers are a great way to work up to that. They’re not in-your-face bold, so they’re a dream when it comes to styling, but they’re also not going to fade into the background.

With selections from names like Lanvin, Margiela, New Balance, and more, Luisaviaroma’s pages are brimming with fire pastel sneakers to wear in 2023.

ASICS Gel-Lyte III OG Sneakers

The ASICS Gel-Lyte III hit its height of popularity in the early 2010s and has since become a peripheral character in ASICS' meteoric rise to fashion's normcore sweetheart. This pair of pastel IIIs, though, suggest that we should be paying the split-tongue silhouette more attention.

adidas Roverend Adventure Sneakers

Sneakers built for the apocalypse? The adidas Roverend definitely fits that category with its wildly chunky sole unit and layered upper. The robust silhouette contrasts nicely with the pared-back, pastel colorway.

HOKA Clifton L Sneakers

$187
Buy at Luisaviaroma

HOKA's domination of the performance landscape is all but complete, and the same can be said for the lifestyle arena too. Designs like the Clifton L Sneakers make use of the label's signature chunky sole unit but pair it with nubuck uppers for a more lifestyle-oriented take.

Axel Arigato Dice Lo Sneakers

Axel ArigatoDice Lo Sneakers
$280
Buy at Luisaviaroma

The Dice Lo is one of our favorite silhouettes from the Swedish label Axel Arigato. Buying into the brand's signature minimalism, it offers a slightly more retro angle than most. An angle that fits smoothly with the baby blue uppers.

ASICS GEL-Kayano 14 Sneakers

Buy at Luisaviaroma

One of the reasons we love pastel sneakers is because of their versatility. So, it helps when the silhouette is one of the most versatile on the market, too. The Converse Chuck 70 Hi is as comfortable with a suit as with swimming shorts.

Maison Margiela Runner Sneakers

Buy at Luisaviaroma

We can't stress enough how much a pastel colorway boosts the wearability of a sneaker. The New Balance 2002 has been a firm favorite of ours for some years now, but it's never looked so multitalented as in this dusty brown palette.

adidas Last Frontier Sneakers

$122
Buy at Luisaviaroma

We love a color so pale that it's barely distinguishable from white. The blue stripes and heel tab of this pair of retro adidas kicks tick that box with gumption.

Lanvin Clay Sneakers

Inspired by minimal tennis sneakers, it's only natural that the Lanvin Clay silhouette looks perfectly at home in this white and pastel green combination.
