Spring is here. Aside from escaping the frigid cold and warming days, Spring brings with it a need for a refresh. It's time to switch up your rotation — toss away those heavy jackets, chunky snow boots, thick scarves, and any remembrance of frigid windchills. To help you with this closet reset, we have put together a Spring Toolkit with some of the most versatile, layer-friendly, colorful, and rain-ready Spring wear options of 2022.

It's easy to get lost in the array of multicolored, statement-making sneakers that are constantly hitting the market, but we are toning down the color and taking a look at some of the best monochromatic sneaker options on the market.

Easy to pair with almost any outfit, a strong selection of black and white sneakers is a formidable force in any sneaker rotation that you will find yourself returning to regularly. While we all love a bright pair of statement sneakers, it is the monochrome pairs that form the backbone of our wardrobes.

From the minimalist-leaning to the more ornate, we've rounded up a selection of monochrome sneakers suited to all tastes and budgets. Peep them below and find your latest pair of go-to sneakers.
