Summer sneakers 2020
Lightweight sneakers for the summer
Summer - temperatures are rising, so is ice cream consumption, and fresh footwear is essential for the hot season. Fortunately, there are various models that, thanks to lightweight uppers such as canvas or mesh, ensure that you keep your feet cool even on hot days. One of our absolute favorites for this summer is the Nike Zoom Spiridon Cage 2. The progressive running silhouette celebrated its debut in the form of a collaboration with the American lifestyle brand Stüssy. There was a lot of hype around the collab, so that the entire collection was sold out in no time. But the inline releases of the Nike Zoom Spiridon Cage 2 are also very popular. Both women and men can look forward to more releases of this summer sneaker. Definitely one of our sneaker highlights for summer 2020!
Sneaker with tennis vibe
Sustainable sneakers for summer
No other brand stands for tennis vibe like adidas. Timeless models like the Stan Smith have accompanied us sneaker fans for years. In the recent past, adidas has again managed to bring silhouettes to the market that can already be called Future Classic. One of these silhouettes is the adidas Supercourt. The new silhouette made its first appearance in 2019 and captured the hearts of a wide range of sneakerheads on the fly. Now, the Supercourt gets a fresh and summer-ready makeover. The previous leather upper is replaced with an airy mesh upper, transforming the shoe into a perfect summer sneaker. At the same time, the Supercourt loses nothing of its tennis vibe and continues to cut a fine figure. But there's no getting around Reebok when it comes to sneakers with a tennis vibe. Models like the Reebok Club C 85 impress with their clean look and can be combined with almost any outfit thanks to the minimalist uppers.
The fact that sustainability is also playing an increasingly important role in the sneaker and streetwear sector has long been beyond question. One of the pioneers in this area is the French brand Veja. The individual sneaker models of the brand are characterized by their diversity and their sustainability character, which is always in the foreground. For all sneaker fans who are particularly concerned about the sustainability aspect, we recommend taking a look at our Veja brand category. Here you will find numerous summer-ready fair trade sneakers in different variations. Especially interesting are models like the Veja V-12 with mesh upper or the Condor Alveomesh. Both are perfectly suitable as summer sneakers for women and for men.
Summer sneakers for ladies
For women, the popular Court Classics continue to be the focus in summer 2020. Long-established silhouettes like the Nike Air Force 1 or the adidas Stan Smith are complemented by new success stories like the Nike Air Max Vapor Wing. This combines the classic Court vibe with the latest sole technology and meets our taste especially as a summer sneaker for women.
Summer sneakers for men
Of course, the men of creation can also look forward to hot releases. Just like with the ladies, court classics like the Air Force 1 play a big role this summer. Here you can already look forward to light summer models with Flyknit uppers. Millennial running sneakers also remain a hot topic. This style is characterized by models like the Nike Zoom Spiridon Cage 2 mentioned above or the ML860 V2 from New Balanceto name just two examples. And of course, the perennial Nike Air Jordan theme remains hot, so men can also look forward to some great summer sneakers. Another model that is especially popular with the guys is the Nike Blazer. The classic silhouette presents itself in a particularly clean garb and is available in both low and mid versions. An absolute eye-catcher that should not be missing in any summer sneaker rotation.
Summer sneaker 2020: Our conclusion
In addition to the two big players adidas and Nike, smaller brands are also facing great releases. In addition to exciting inline releases, one or two highly interesting collaborations will also see the light of day. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to reveal much more at this point. But this much is already said: The summer will definitely be hot - and we don't just mean the temperatures!
