The Best Summer Sneakers on a Budget!

Summer is fast approaching, and I think it’s time for a closet update. One thing I always seem to neglect is my shoes- I’ve been wearing the same pair of white Nike M2K Tekno sneakers for the last three years (when wearing grandfather shoes was stylish…ugh). I decided that even though I probably won’t be doing much more than a grocery store run this summer, I wanted to invest in a new pair of sneakers. I’ve curated a list to help you narrow down your search for the cutest pair too!

  1. A pair of white converse go with everything. Although the “look” can be a little basic, Converse now sells a platform version of their classic styles that elevate the whole look! I found them on the Converse Canada website for $75. 

  2. As you can probably tell, I am a big fan of platform shoes! I think they’re super comfortable and give you an extra bit of height. I owned a pair of Old Skool Platform Vans that I loved endlessly, so I think the slip-ons, especially the black and white checker ones would be perfect for summer. You can find them on the Vans website for $55. 

  3. No words. They’re so cute and so on-trend for summer. They’re $50 on Vans and come in white and black. 

  4. I found these shoes on the Canadian Nike website and I’m in love— they’re absolutely adorable. They’re essentially white Nike Air Force 1s with a felt cheetah-print swoosh. They’re not extravagant enough to be difficult to pair outfits with but aren’t too basic that you fall into the crowd. They can be found on Nike Canada for $95. 

I have never been one to splurge on sneakers nor understand the world of footwear fashion. But I do believe these sneakers are great starting points for summer and don’t completely break the bank!
