Spice Up Your Summer Rotation With These Hyped Sneakers!
When the term "summer sneaker" comes to mind, chances are you'd automatically think of a pair of all-white trainers. While this is, certainly, the traditional way of thinking, don't you find that "Triple White" can be a little sterile at times? When the sun's shining and the birds are singing and you've got nothing but good vibes on your mind, the last thing that you want is to look down at your feet and go, "Oh... Why have I got these things on?"
With that said, The Edit LDN is here to give you some inspo on what you should add to your warm weather rotation this year! From sought-after Air Jordan 1s to New Balances that will definitely turn heads wherever you go, you definitely don't want to miss out on any of these. Oh, and while you're here, make sure you follow us over on Instagram for the hottest sneaker and streetwear content out there!

Probably one of Chitose Abe's best sneakers with the Swoosh, the sacai x Nike VaporWaffle "White Gum" takes the high heat hybrid to clean new levels. Working on top of a crisp white nylon base, it's complemented by creamy suede panels throughout. All of this, paired with the Japanese imprint's deconstructed detailing, and you've got true winner.

Joe Freshgoods x New Balance 993 "Powder Pink"
We just can't stop winking at the Joe Freshgoods x New Balance 993 "Powder Pink." Part of the Chicago native's "Performance Art" collection, this cute colourway is, hands down, the most limited of the three. Made in the USA, it's crafted from supple suede and sits on top of a chunky ABZORB midsole that's dipped in an adorable peach hue. Your summer rotation is gonna love you for this. Buy now
Nike Air Max 95 "Pink Foam"
Believe it or not, the Nike Air Max 95 "Pink Foam" is actually Kim K's favourite Air Max trainer. She's been spotted multiple times rocking the pastel pair while working out in the gym, so if you want to steal her style then this is the shoe for you. Boasting a multi-material upper that fades from white to black, the lacing system and Air midsole are both accented by pops of pink throughout. Buy now
New Balance 2002R Protection Pack "Raincloud"
It should come as no surprise that, if the New Balance 2002R Protection Pack "Raincloud" didn't exist, the hype surrounding the Boston-based brand probably wouldn't be at the levels that they're at today. Created by Chinese footwear designer Yue Wu, he has taken the retro-inspired runner and applied an artifact-like aesthetic onto it, giving it a truly one-of-a-kind design that we just adore. Buy now
Nike Dunk Low "Panda"
We can't have a list about hyped trainers without bringing up the Nike Dunk Low "Panda." Arguably one of the most popular pairs that you can buy today, absolutely everyone and their dog has some on their feet right now. Even though it was introduced all the way back in 2021, sneakerheads, both old and new, are madly in love with the monochromatic masterpiece. And there's really no questioning why. Buy now
New Balance 550 "White Green"
If for whatever reason you still don't have a pair of 550s in your collection, the New Balance 550 "White Green" will feel right at home in your warm weather rotation. One of the most hyped models from the past couple of years, this silhouette actually debuted all the way back in the mid '80s during the basketball boom. Now it's officially back and better than ever. Buy now
Air Jordan 4 "Military Black"
Of course, we couldn't write this list without mentioning the truly iconic Air Jordan 4 "Military Black." One of the cleanest AJ 4s that we've seen in a very long time, it's inspired by the OG "Military Blue" from 1989, but instead of the bold blue hues, they've been switched out for slick black accents instead. The result is a truly breathtaking colourway that every sneakerhead needs in their collection. Buy now
Tom Sachs x Nike General Purpose Shoe "Dark Sulfur"
And last but not least, we have the Tom Sachs x Nike General Purpose Shoe "Dark Sulfur."
