The colour pink used to be the bane of female sneakerhead’s lives, back in the not-so-long-ago days when there was little choice for the ladies and sportswear companies seemed to think we only wanted to wear Barbie pink shoes. But for Spring 2017, there’s a nice trend of pink-done-proper sneakers emerging, and we are totally here for it.

Asics just dropped this beautiful Komachi Peach Beige rendition of its ever-popular Gel-Lyte sneaker, dressed in a subtle yet standout pink palette. The mesh upper features details that are feminine yet not too typically girly, while the clean white midsole and beige accents add a nice contrast to the pink. These are available from select retailers including Afew for €84.95 (approximately $120 CAD).
