The best way to give your work and weekend ensembles a luxe new finish? Why, with a pair of box-fresh kicks of course!

The humble sneaker has come a long way from its gym floor beginnings and these footwear favourites have become a staple of the streets to the runways for a reason. No shoe collection is complete without a solid pair of great sneakers. These are shoes truly meant for walking––everyday, anywhere and in style, bringing the final touch to smart-casual, comfortable 'fits everywhere. 

Whether you're on the hunt for a colour-blocked retro-inspired pair that's currently trending or looking for the perfect classic white kicks that are perennially chic (wear them with tailored pants, jeans-and-tee or a midi dress), we've rounded up the best new sneaker releases that's landed on our radar for both men and women––read on: 

Adidas x Gucci sneakers

Available from the 7th of June, high fashion meets sportswear once more under Alessandro Michele's creative partnership with Adidas. Inspired by a series of images retrieved from archival catalogues, this latest collaboration sees the sports label’s Gazelle sneakers—featuring the iconic Three Stripes—alongside the Gucci web print in a retro colour palette. We're absolutely into it!

Zegna Triple Stitch 

Malleable and multifaceted, the Triple Stitch sneakers ensure you nail the smart-casual look effortlessly. Updated in a new set of colourways, they not only offer an extra flair to your outfit but also give you added comfort with every step you take. Offered in a variety of options—from grained leather to canvas and soft suede—the flexible construction and lightweight rubber sole will definitely add a kick to your shoe collection.

Alexander McQueen Sprint Runner 

First introduced during Alexander McQueen's Spring/Summer 2022 show alongside sharply tailored suits and signature sculptural dresses, the Sprint Runner arrives in a myriad of iterations for the current season and beyond. Designed with a chunky sole and a clean, minimal unisex aesthetic that includes an ornate, bloom-like pattern on each side, this is the kick to add to your collection if you're in need of an elevated staple to base your everyday ensembles. Go for the striking all-white or all-black look, or opt for their different canvas variations in bone, navy or red. 

Dior B29

On the hunt for an elevated menswear sneaker for the summer? Look no further than the Dior B29, the brand's statement kicks with a retro-inspired design. Combining the modernity of rubber and reflective canvas with the elegance of leather and suede, the latest iteration comes with geometric curves and contrasting colours in colourways that include monochrome black and grey, as well as brown with pops of beige and orange. 

Giuseppe Zanotti Cobras

Teased throughout Milan Fashion Week, Giuseppe Zanotti unveils its latest silhouette, the Cobras. With hip-hop artist Young Thug tapped to introduce the new icon, the new men's low-top features a striking scaled 3D cobra with crystal-set eyes that wraps around the body of the shoe––a symbol of power and transformation, and a motif that's often used by Giuseppe Zanotti in his dress shoe collections. Available in four tone-on-tone iterations ranging from red, black, white and pink, the Cobras is a luxe leather statement that's set to slither its way to the top of the sneaker-dom.

Inspired by a high-performing on-court shoe from the '80s, the New Balance CT302 is a contemporary statement piece that redefines timeless style. The new silhouette features an oversized N logo with tones from the Shifted category (think lifestyle styles like the 327, 237 and 57/40), as well as a higher platform, larger back tab and rounded edges. Thanks to its nylon tongue, the shoe exudes a slight vintage feel that's complete by the mix of suede and rubber on the tip with leather and synthetic leather throughout. Now available in white and light blue colourway, with additional releases to arrive throughout the rest of the year. 

Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Sabot

Beat the heat with the spirit and energy of Onitsuka Tiger through their Mexico 66 Sabot. An easy option for hot sunny days, the slip-on shoe is a classic that retains its original shape and iconic logo from the brand's iconic Mexico 66 running lifestyle model. Crafted in mesh material for extra breathability, the Mexico 66 Sabot also features an OrthoLite™ sockliner for high-level comfort for long errand days out or casual dinners with friends and family.
