2024 sneaker trends

Believe it or not, it’s already time to figure out key sneaker trends 2024 for this summer —not that we’re complaining. Since you’re already revamping your wardrobe with the cutest spring and summer fashion trends, you might as well refresh your shoe collection at the same time. And this year, the newest, most of-the-moment options are especially good.

The overall vibe, as we’ve deduced from countless hours of walking around New York, is athletic, with slim, retro styles—especially Adidas Sambas—reigning supreme among 2024 shoe trends. (Blame tenniscore.) Color-wise, there are two camps: neutrals (like ecru and black) and stunners (like bright yellow and vibrant pink) that’ll be dominating street style this season. There will be plenty of chances to go loud with your footwear, too, especially with metallics and printed uppers trending.

Ready to bring your sneakers up to speed before everyone else does? These are the sneaker trends 2024 we’ll be wearing this summer and beyond, including high-performance gems and picks that look great with summer dresses. Oh, and don’t worry about investing; these picks might be trendy now, but we’re excited to style them far into the future.

The street-style set has spoken: We’re in for a summer of slim sneakers. Adidas Sambas are still just as hot as they were last summer, especially on the heels of several high-profile collaborations with Wales Bonner. (Good luck trying to find any of those Sambas still in stock.) Heritage silhouettes from brands like Puma, Nike, and Gola are also enjoying a major moment, as are ’00s-inspired picks from the likes of Jeffrey Campbell. No matter which pair you choose, style them with white crew socks for the full effect.
