Sneakers are moving away from the simple designs and neutral colors of the past couple years. Their replacement? Bold, colorful, and often over-the-top kicks like Balenciaga’s sold-out Triple S, retro Nike styles, and the Yeezy Waverunner.

One easy way to try the new trend is with red sneakers, because you don’t have to spend a fortune on grail-level kicks and you have plenty of options to choose from. Here are 8 of our favorite pairs from Vans, Adidas, Nike, and New Balance.

1. Vans Authentic Core Classics

A fresh pair of Vans is always a great pre-spring purchase, and this year red is the color to get. The timeless design of this style works well with the bold red color, and makes a great low-priced option at just $50.

2. Adidas CF Ilation 2.0

We like these Adidas Ilation’s because they have the bold look of the moment, but they’re not something you’ll see everywhere. They feature a perforated mesh and leather upper, a cushioned midsole, and a reasonable price tag of $60.

3. Vans SK8-Hi Slim

Another great option from Vans is their classic SK8-Hi in Tibetan Red. Like the Vans Classics, the famous silhouette is ideal template for bold colors because you can still throw them on with almost anything.

4. New Balance Classics

Two years ago New Balance was for reserved for grandpas, but thanks to the grandpa sneaker trend, they’re now one of the coolest retro kicks around. It’s worth getting excited about because New Balance’s are attainable and they’re extremely comfortable.

5. Nike Roshe One

Nike’s Roshe sneaker is a great addition to any wardrobe because they’re highly versatile style-wise, but also performance-wise. They can be the final touch on a trendy Sunday outfit, or a bold addition to your workout wardrobe.

6. Nike Air Huarache

Nike recently released a slew of new Air Huarache’s to much excitement from sneakerheads. We think they did a great job of updating the classic 90s running shoe with modern design tweaks and colors, while still maintaining the sneakers charm.

7. Nike Air Huarache Drift

Another variation of the Huarache is the Drift, which has a slightly more modern silhouette than the classic Huarache. They feature a textile bootie, the classic elastic heel strap and midfoot cage, and premium cushioning.

8. Adidas Y-3 Kusari

If you’re able to splurge on some red kicks, we recommend the Adidas Y-3 Kusaris. They elevate the running shoe look with a few key tweaks, and make a great addition to any wardrobe.
