I wear my white sneakers on the reg like the rest of the world, which is exactly why they’re not exactly white anymore. Sure, they go with every single thing that I wear and are reliable walking shoes, but recently I decided to switch things up a bit, and so I invested in a pair of rainbow-colored, color-block sneakers to brighten up my life and the streets that I walk on.

I’m not the only person trotting around in multi-colored kicks, though—everywhere I look these days, my eyes are immediately grabbed by other rainbow-hued sneaks that aren’t shy (at all) with their use of color. There are actual rainbow sneakers, those that pair bright yellows with bright pinks and lime greens, those that alternate cool black and white with neon stripes of color, and the list goes on-and-on. It’s sort of like art deco…for your feet.

If you’re staunchly on the solid or neutral-hued sneaker train and think you’d never buy color blocked kicks, hear me out: You can rock a lot of cool looks with them. Like, not only do they add a flash to a monochromatic outfit, but they can also add more color to a color blocked look too. And sometimes more is more, ya know? Keep scrolling for our colorful faves.

This is the pair that I personally own, and I can attest to how comfortable they are because I wear them pretty much every day—and I always get compliments on them. They’re like the shoe version of a Lite Brite.

My colleague rocks these on the reg, and swears that they make you feel like you’re walking on literal clouds. They’re puffy, super-comfy, have bungee laces, and the colors all remind me of summertime sherbet—and what’s not to love about that?

If I could put my money where my mouth is, I’d invest in these stat. The chunkiness gives them an entirely other level of cool, and the pops of Power Ranger pink add a feminine touch to the ultimate dad sneaker.
