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.
Maison Margiela X Reebok Classic
From its design studio to its jeans, Maison Margiela has a long history of painting things white. On these sneakers, the shoe will become more black than white over time as the paint chips off with time.
Converse X Rick Owens Chuck 70
A classic pair of black and white Converse Chuck 70s is a staple wardrobe essential. But when it is given the Rick Owens treatment through an elongated tongue and exaggerated dimensions, the shoe becomes a whole other beast.
Acne Studios Ballow Slip On
Whether they're for the beach, dressed up with slacks, or slipped on for a lazy day where laces feel like a big chore, these Acne Studios sneakers are a minimal and versatile design.
Vans Old Skool
One of Vans' signature sneakers in the classic black and white colorway, Kim Kardashian and Rihanna have been making the case for everyone to have a pair of Old Skool's.
Last Resort AB VM001 Suede Hi
Last Resort AB's selection of footwear might be made for skateboarding but their timeless designs mean they're loved by skaters and non-skaters alike. The VM0001 is a testament to that.
adidas Originals Tyshawn Lows
American Skateboarder Tyshawn Jones' signature adidas sneaker is a classic low-profile design that you can't go wrong with.
New Balance 57/40
Take a classic and unassuming New Balance 570, add a statement-making midsole along with 90s tech-inspired details, and you get the New Balance 57/40. In short, they're similar to the sneakers your pops wears but better.
Rick Owens Jumbo Lace Sneakers
You never know which route Rick Owens will take when updating its classic sneakers for each season, this time the American label has opted for XXL laces.
Prada America's Cup
Could the America's Cup be Prada's best sneaker ever? We think it might be.
Nike Dunk Low Retro
With the barrage of over-the-top Nike Dunk collaborations that have hit the market over the past few years, sometimes it's good to go back to basics with a black and white colorway and remind us of the timeless design that made us love the sneaker in the first place.
