Pump Up The Volume: 21 Must-Have Summer Sneakers

Put your best summer foot forward in these stylish and comfy trainers and pumps.

Summer is, of course, synonymous with a good sandal. But while we do, of course, love airing our toes, we also say don’t be too hasty to ditch the trusty trainer as soon as the sun comes out. A flipflop is a joy, but only if you’re not going too far (from holiday rental to beach is ideal). A good sneaker, on the other hand, will see you through summer in sublime comfort, whether you’re beachside or in the city – plus they go perfectly with your seasonal wardrobe. Shorts, floaty maxi dresses, flippy skirts: a breezy white trainer makes the perfect marriage for them all. The key is, of course, to find the right pair.

To that end, we’ve rounded up 21 of the most coveted summer sneakers right now.
