6 Sneaker Colors You're About To See Everywhere

Once upon a time, shoe color options were limited. Our feet were enrobed in a safe black or brown, and for most, choosing a colorful shoe felt impractical. But as sneaker silhouettes get chunkier, the colors get wilder, and we feel increasingly more excited to lace up something bold and bright. Now, new colorways for popular sneaker designs are released constantly and, before you know it, you own Nike Air Maxes in five different hues. Nobody's judging, though. That's one of the great things about the endless array of options available: You can find a style you love, buy it in multiple colors, and skip the whole dealing-with-drops things.
You'd be surprised by how many outfits can be built around shoes in colors like "toothpaste green" or "rosy pink." The first step is dressing without fear. The second is digging through countless sneaker styles for the colors that are about to be big. Luckily, we've done all of the legwork for you. Ahead, find six sneaker color trends you're about to run into everywhere.

Work Boot Beige
Timberlands, but make it sneakers. A good tan sneaker will take you a long way and isn't as risk-averse as you might think.

Kaleidoscope Colors
Why settle for one or two hues when you can have a dozen? Mixed together in an oh-so-strategic way, these rainbow-colored sneakers aren't for the faint of heart.
