Ever since Rose Quartz was announced as one of the two colours of the year (besides Serenity), designers are growing more comfortable with using these gentle shades in many of their designs. Blush pink can be easily injected into a monochrome outfit for a subtle pop of colour – it’s honestly one of the more versatile colours to wear.
If you are still on the fence about the idea of pink sneakers, here are a few picks that might just help you change your mind.
1. adidas Originals
adidas Originals Gazelle Women’s, £90.00
adidas has really upped its game recently, producing highly coveted sneakers like the NMDs and Stan Smiths. However, who can resist the understated Gazelles – retro with some attitude to boot.
2. Jil Sander
Jil Sander Pink Miro Sneakers, $490 USD
This is the perfect minimalist pair for those looking for a more neutral shade of pink. Careful though, these babies are made of calfskin so remember to tread lightly.
3. Common Projects
Common Projects never fails to amaze with their sleek designs, and once again outdoes itself by managing to make the Velcro strap closures (reminiscent of our school shoes) look 100% spic-and-span. The straps give these kicks its unique style, and sporting these sneakers will definitely help you look like you won puberty.
4. THEY New York
THEY New York manages to artfully meld colourblocking silhouettes into their high-end sneakers by picking beautifully complementary shades.
5. Gianvito Rossi
If you want to walk it like you talk it, these are the slippers to get as they simply ooze luxury and extravagance.
