adidas Terrez ClimaCool Boat Parley Shoes



Sail through spring with style in these boat shoes with a streetwear look. They have a serious traction outsole with stellar grip, the right perforated soles for drainage, and a cool-looking (and feeling) Climacool upper that makes for great breathable footwear. Plus, part of the fabric used features Parley ocean plastic, made from recycled coastal waste before it’s hit the ocean.

Do good for the environment, feel good all season long, and look fashionable AF. It’s a no-brainer!

adidas Tubular Doom Sock Primeknit Shoes



We’re loving these for their Yeezy look without the high price-tag. Your feet will feel cool and look cool in a stylish neutral color with a ventilated Primeknit upper to avoid sweaty feet during warmer months. The Tubular Doom Sock Primeknit sneakers were inspired by car tires with a futuristic design that reminds us of Kanye’s cool collaboration, but you don’t have to pay a fortune on eBay or be part of the Kardashian clan to score these bad boys.
