This latest drop of sneakers is getting all the feels
This week’s sneaker drops were all about texture. From woven kicks to knits and styles that made us want to hold them in our hands or brush them up against our cheek instead of simply lace them onto our feet. Eventually we did though, making up some pretty crispy spring looks. Cop your faves and show us how you rock them by posting to your Insta with #SuperbMe
But wait, here’s a disclaimer – there’s a chance that kicks this fresh may already be sold out in your size by the time you read this, so if that’s the case then may we suggest that next time you don’t sleep, and be sure to follow Superbalist’s Superb Shoe of the Day on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
