With foot sweat becoming a reality, it’s a good idea to get a rotation going and giving your pairs time to rest and air out between wears.
Here’s a full seven day complement to step out in:
1) All-white everything
Nothing shines in the summer sun like a crispy pair of all-white kicks—a monochrome pair of “Crisp White” adidas NMDs is the perfectly named shoe for this purpose. As for actually getting your hands on a pair though, good luck!

2) Canvas sneakers
Hype is real for the skater mainstay in 2017. The ubiquitous Old Skool has actually been selling out here and there, but we can’t blame people because these are chill enough to wear everyday with the shorts weather.

No more cancelled pickup games kasi basa ang court! Surfaces are going to get hot and sticky this summer, so it won’t be a bad idea to pickup a new pair of on-court footwear. We recommend the latest “University Red” colorway of the LeBron 14.

4) Exploring shoes
If you’re planning on a summer trip, you need a pair that can do heavy walking and look IG-pretty at the same time. The Iniki Runner’s solid colored mesh and suede upper is perfect for the feed, and the Boost sole needs no introduction by now.
5) Color bomb
Buy that one pair which is a pain in the ass to match with the rest of your clothes, but brings a big smile to your face on those couple of days where it brings an outfit together. It’s summer so get loud.

6) Desert boots
This author once wore crepe-soled desert boots during a rainy day and almost broke his neck because those things don’t exactly grip in the wet. But when the high heat of the summer calls for some dressing up, these suede classics are surefooted and very hard to beat.

7) High tops
#2 might be a little too on-trend for you wallflowers out there but we wouldn’t want to slave through summer without a canvas pair in the rotation. Go for the retro goodness of some Chucks and remind people how good they look.
