Summer 2015 Trend: Knit Trainers

The style Gods have blessed our feet with breathable sneakers this Summer. Say goodbye to the suffocation brought on by canvas and leather, as knit trainers are quickly making more appearances outside of the gym. They’re versatile, funky, and comfortable. Here are some of the best options to embrace the summer’s biggest footwear trend.

1. Adidas Ultra Boost

Adidas sells their Ultra Boost as extremely flexible, including an adaptable sockliner that adjust to your forefoot. If you’re feeling extra bold, the Ultra Boost is getting an all-white colorway at the beginning of June. If scuffing your shoes is still just too much of a scary image, cop the black, purple or orange.

2. NIke Flyknit

There are a few variations of the Flyknit, but the Roshe One looks the cleanest. The sole comes with a bit more cushion, but the beauty of Nike’s website is the practically endless customization. Go nuts on the online shop and pick your pair.

3. New Balance 1500v1

Backed on its patented REVlite cushioning and T-BEAM stability, the 1500v1 won “Best New Debut” this month at Runner’s World magazine. New Balance itself has been enjoying a bit of a boom the last few years, and with releases like this coming steady, it’s easy to see why. These knits look great.

4. Under Armour SpeedForm 

Under Armour know how to make training gear. The SpeedForm is a dependable choice and a great way to stand out from the bigger brands. Try the graphic colorway for more individual expression.

5. Nike Sock Dart

Feeling a bit more extravagant? Spend a few hundred on the Nike Sock Dart. These guys sold out in stores fast, straying away from the classic look for a more streamlined approach. They may be a bit hard to find in-store, but that’s what the internet is here for.
