By Chris Ong        28 June 2021

The sale season is upon us, which makes it great timing (and an added reason) for you to buy yourself some new shoes on discount. To help make your decision-making easy-peasy, we have scoured the Internet to look for some great sneaks that look good at an even better price. Here’s 6 to swipe your card for.

“The No-Hype Sneakers Selection” is our fortnightly curation of the not-so-hot but oh-so-cool shoes that you might have missed out on.

NikeCourt Legacy Valentine’s Day, $69.90 (Usual Price: $89), Nike

Thinking of buying a prezzie for your GF just to show how much you miss her, because of all the social distancing restrictions over the past year, but your budget’s a little tight this month? No worries, this one should solve all your probs. This retro-style women’s tennis shoe is prettied up in a light lilac colour, with the removable mini Nike Swoosh patches adding a touch of quirkiness. The fact that it’s a Valentine’s Day edition makes this all the more sweeter a gift.

This evolution of Clarks Trigenic Flex model (hence, its name, Trigenic Evo) is crafted with a sporty silhouette, but is also elevated with a three-part, decoupled Vibram sole unit that features a linear map of the human gait cycle (so clever, so cool) and a luxe-looking tan leather and canvas upper.

U-Color Era, $55.30 (Usual Price: $299), Vans

Two reasons why this is the most fun pair of sneaks to get. One, the white shoe is printed all over with big, bold flowers that look like they could have been hand-drawn by you or your artistic kiddo. Two, you are encouraged to customise the kicks by colouring the petals in all shades of the rainbow. Let yourself or your loved one go wild on these and wear them as a labour of your love, in both senses of the term.

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star High

Chuck Taylor All Star High, $49.50 (Usual Price: $99), Converse

You can’t call yourself a real sneakerhead unless you own at least one pair of Converse kicks. And, since it is the prime sale period, there’s no better time than now to get yourself one, pronto. Instead of purchasing either a too-trendy pair that will date fast or one that’s too plain, try putting your money on this one instead. It’s colour-blocked in grey and black with a white sole so you can match this with almost every kind of apparel, but is kept interesting and attention-grabbing with two bright yellow stripes cutting across the uppers. And at half-price, you can afford to get another pair of Converses that’s on sale if you wanna.

High-top corduroy sneakers, $35.90 ($49.90), Zara

What’s better than an affordable pair of Zara shoes? A pair of Zara shoes that’s on discount. Like these ones here. And, what’s more handsome than this pair of khaki corduroy high-tops with black trimmings and outsole? You, wearing them.

We are never one to say “No” to style and comfort, and we most certainly won’t reject these khaki-green ones here. It looks cushiony as a quilted duvet, and snug as a camping sleeping bag, thanks to its elasticated padded collars and Velcro-straps. Wear them straight from your bedroom to wherever you wish, and hopefully, you won’t fall asleep on your feet in these.
