The winter to spring shift is a time for rebirth, especially this year. When it comes to the wardrobe, it’s all about having the right tools in place to adapt to changing weather and conditions. Our Spring Style Toolkit is here to help.

Nobody in their right mind is eagerly unboxing a new pair of sneakers with the prospect of torrential rain, ice, and snow on the cards. Spring, therefore, can’t come soon enough when it comes to considering a new rotation. Not only have new-season styles just dropped, but the drier, warmer, more predictable weather means that everything is possible: when we say sneakers for spring, we mean all colors, all materials.

Every year, we take this opportunity to inject a boost into our rotation and after a winter as quiet as the one we had, this year is no exception. We’ve rounded up some of the best sneakers for spring, spanning hiking sneaks to lightweight runners, all of which have got our creative juices flowing for the new season. So, without further ado, let Salomon, adidas, and more start to shape your footwear selection and make the most of the coming months.

Shop our favorite sneakers for spring below.

For a spring or summer sneaker, being lightweight is fundamental. Any shoe that weighs you down when it's hot outside will inevitably be retired to the back of the rotation. There's no way this is happening to the adidas ZX 2K Boost Pure, though. An ultra-lightweight ripstop upper sits atop a bouncy Boost midsole for ultimate spring in spring.

While spring is a lot lighter than winter, there are still chances of showers, which makes Salomon’s XT-Wings 2 Advanced the perfect rotation foundation. We’re opting for a light, neutral colorway for the brighter weather in the knowledge that the rugged sole and waterproof TPU overlays are ready in case of adverse weather.
