13 Knit Sneakers to Lighten Up Your Spring Look

A new fabric makes all the difference.
Comments

The best part about spring style is ditching all of your heavy gear for lighter (and much more fun) warm-weather stuff. Specifically, shoes. There's nothing better than looking right past a pair of boots and opting for a clean sneaker for a (finally) nice day. This spring, consider adding a knit sneaker into rotation. The switch is a relatively small one, but it makes a big difference. It makes the shoe feel more comfortable on your foot, and it adds a laid-back element to an already low-key shoe. Here are 13 pairs to choose from.

Long live a low-top white sneaker. A knitted upper is a cool alternative to leather or canvas.

Knitted works for workout sneakers, too—maybe even especially, since the upper helps keep your sweaty feet aired out.  

Nike Epic React

Nike's Epic React is the best blend of futuristic functionality and lightweight fabric.

This tonal Asics trainer is certainly a look. The speckled gray, white, and black is an easy way to do it, though. 

Adidas x Pharrell Williams 

Stan Smiths look even fresher in a white knit.

Level up a VaporMax with a multicolored Flyknit. 

Adidas Copa 70Y TR

Thank '90s nostalgia for making the soccer sneaker stylish again. And thank modern innovation for making this pair so comfortable.

APL loves a good athleisure shoe. This pair goes in on the "leisure" part of things with a cashmere blend upper. Basically, it's a glorified slipper—except you can actually run in it.  

Fendi Knitted Mid-Top Trainer

These Fendi sneakers take the whole knitted vibe up a level with an actual sock cuff. We dig it.

Knitted shoes are inherently more casual, but this Prada pair still feels luxe.
