Oh sneakers, how we have missed you. With stay-at-home restrictions making house shoes more common than any outdoor footwear, slowly but surely we are making our way outside, bringing our beloved kicks back into the rotation. While white sneakers are the season’s footwear of choice, for anything beyond a quick jaunt, cumbersome coke-white Air Force 1s simply will not do.

Whether it’s a day running around the city or a rough gravel path on a short hike, a lightweight pair of sneakers is crucial. Thankfully, there are dozens of options from a bevy of brands. So, rather than stick to a pair of Common Projects, it’s time to expand your repertoire and start buying some footwear that despite how light they are, hold their own weight. Below, we present our favorite lightweight sneakers.
