Before you take a look at adding new sneakers this season, you may want to make sure your classics are in order. By classic, we mean the pairs that usually get the most wear because they’re easy to wear with just about anything. We’ve picked out some of our favourites this season ranging from clean white and black sneakers, a pair of high-top canvas, as well as a two picks from our favourite Japanese brands.

This New York brand’s Achilles Low sneaker has quickly solidified itself as a new classic. This is thanks to its no frills aesthetic and premium construction.
Thirty years ago on March 26th Nike released the Air Max 1 in this exact colour way. This month they have re-released pairs of the classic sneaker and you can get your hands on them on now.
The three stripes brand’s Y-3 division is headed by Yohji Yamamoto, one of the most influential and avant-garde designers of our time. It’s no surprise then that these all-black Qasa High tops give off a ninja vibe.
You can never ever go wrong with a pair of Converse, especially if they are the All Star ’70s. What makes them special is that they are made exactly as they were during the 1970s. Hence the tougher canvas, metal eyelets, and the slightly wider outsole.
Japanese label Hender Scheme has a collection of footwear that pays homage to some of our favourite silhouettes. What truly sets it a part from the original is the expert craftsmanship and premium materials.
Hiroki Nakamura’s Visvim began as a footwear brand but it has grown to become a full-fledged fashion brand with a cult like following. The FBT shoe is one of their most popular pieces and a grail for those who truly appreciate handmade goods.
