There’s a reason why millennial pink came to define a generation. As color and materials consultant Kuan Chi Hau recently told Well+Good: “It’s ironic, approachable, positive, fun, retro, smart, and luxurious.” The shade has been everywhere from corner offices to trendy restaurants, and—in no surprise—it’s also become a sneaker staple. In case “they look cute” isn’t reason enough to add a pair of candy-colored kicks to your rotation, they may also offer some mood-boosting benefits.

A 2020 study found that pink was the color most highly associated with pleasure, love, joy, and amusement. So while a pair of rosy sneakers may not be able to solve all of our problems right now, it certainly can’t hurt. With that in mind, scroll through for eight pairs of pink sneakers for women worth shopping.

1. Vionic Pink Joey Casual Sneakers

These sneakers feel as good as they look. Thanks to their memory foam sole, they’ve received a seal of acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Association, and their rosé-inspired hue will keep them on your feet all year round.

2. Vans Pink & White Old Skool Shoes

This bubblegum twist on Vans’ classic skater shoes add an eye-catching update to your usual black-on-black leggings and sports bra. Made with canvas and suede, they’re the perfect sneaker for long walks (or if you’re feeling bold, skateboarding sessions) around your neighborhood.

3. New Balance Silver & Pink 850 Sneakers

Tell me these shoes don’t look *exactly* like something the title character in Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century would have worn everywhere. Their silver accents give them a spacey, new-age feel, and they’ve got all of the best of New Balance’s tech, like a posting system to prevent foot movement and a supportive midsole for added stability.

4. Adidas Blue & Pink Yung-1 Sneakers

If you were always one of those people who felt torn between choosing blue and pink as your favorite color, these shoes will give you the best of both worlds. In addition to being downright adorable, they’re also lightweight and extra comfy.

5. Puma White & Pink RS-X³ Sneakers

Throw it back to the ’80s with these neon sneaks, which are about as bright and bold as a pair of shoes can get. Though they may look retro, their rubber outsole provides next-gen grip, which makes them great for pounding the pavement at any speed.

6. Asics Black & Pink Atmos Gel-INST. 180 Sneakers

Edge up your pink shoe game with this black-and-fuschia combo. Asics is known for being behind some of the best-of-the-best running shoes, and these are no exception. They’re made with 180-degree GEL technology, which offers shock absorption throughout your foot that will make all of your workouts more comfortable.

7. Reebok Pink Hypebae DMX Thrill Shoes

Whether you’re wearing these trendy sneakers with workout wear or an actual “outfit” (though what even is that anymore…), they’re damn near guaranteed to garner you some compliments. They’re capital-C cool and will make you wish your Zoom camera allowed you to show off your shoes on a regular basis.

8. Saucony White & Purple Jazz 4000 Sneakers

For a pink shoe that doesn’t feel so, well, pink, opt for this pastel combo. With a combination of pink, red, blue, purple, black, and white (so, basically *all* of the colors), it will match with every single pair of leggings in your wardrobe.
