Every day our man Nick Cannon covers off on the hottest music, movies and stars of pop culture. Come back each day for a list from Nick as part of Cannon’s Countdown.
Face it: Summer is all about looking good, feeling good and having fun. Being fresh. And what says fresh better than a dope set of kicks? So, here are six of my favorite sneakers right now. Some are haute off the assembly line and others are classic joints you can never go wrong with.
Thank me later.
6. YSL Black High Tops
YSL’s Black High Top mixes different premium materials some you might not think of for Summer, but these sneaks are perfect for any and all fits from t-shirts and shorts in the afternoon to your favorite jean and blazer at night. ysl.com ($661-$753)
5. Nike Cortez
You can’t get more classic than Nike Cortez. Here is a pair made for summer days. Take ’em back to the old school! nike.com ($60)
4. Kris Van Assche Kicks
These dope high tops by Belgium designer Kris Van Assche are right on point. This cat is a former designer for Dior and YSL and now he’s killing the streets of the world with his own understated but high-post flavor. krisvanassche.com ($450)
3. Converse by John Varvatos
John Varvatos’s spin on the classic Converse is straight-up rock n roll. Period. Tell me these limited edition Star Tech high tops aren’t made to show off while your legs are flying in the air after diving into a mosh pit at a show? johnvarvatos.com ($600)
VANS are cool, comfortable and easy breezy. Always have been. Always will be. Add a pop of color into your days with these. vans.com ($55)
Think you’re fearless? Then, cop these color-blocking LANVIN calfskin high-tops. If you ain’t ready to make a statement wherever you step, then fuggedaboutit! But, if you are, then go for them. lanvin.com ($930)
Now throw me some sweet picts of your freshest kicks. Remember to come back every day to Cannon’s Countdown. I’ll keep you dressed in and rockin out to the hottest hits.
