CLAE has our new favorite spring sneakers — and they could soon be your favorite spring sneakers.

The business of switching out your sturdy winter boots for lighter fare — in the form of crisp, classic and casual spring sneakers — can be a daunting one. That’s particularly true if you love leather chukka boots and other hard-wearing gear for the colder months. But luckily for all of us, CLAE  has launched a spring line that’s got something for everyone; from retro runners to minimal canvas sneakers and slick suede high-tops, you’re sure to find kicks that you’ll want to pair with everything from a classic pocket tee to a navy blazer and light wash denim. Here are our five favorites from the offering — get your credit card at the ready.

Hayward $100

For only $100 — yes, just a hundo — you’re getting what just might be the most unique sneaker in the CLAE line. Featuring a blend of surprisingly sturdy, yet flexible nylon and water-resistant waxed suede on the upper, these retro runners are ideal for spring weekends and crisp enough to team with a lightweight blazer on Casual Friday.

Bradley Mid $150

Hopefully, you’re catching on now — suede is an excellent transitional footwear pick for spring when it’s water-resistant and crafted into a neat high-top sneaker. Combining a retro silhouette with clean lines, the result is a surprisingly dressy sneaker that you should team with stone chinos for a bit of monochromatic style.

Bradley $140new favorite spring sneakers clae bradley white 1  copy

The low-top relative of the CLAE Bradley Mid, the CLAE Bradley is a sharp take on the classic court shoe. It’s a simple, no-frills sneaker that could boldly be worn with a tailored chambray suit or casually with chinos and breezy blue polo. Any way you wear it, who doesn’t love a classic white sneaker?

Ellington Textile in Steel Denim Canvas $75

For just $75, you’re getting a heck of a lot of style potential in a clean, low-cut sneaker. The denim canvas upper is as bright and airy as the spring sky — word play aside, it’s the pair of sneakers you need for spring and summer park strolls and of course, a long, yet stylish Sunday brunch.

Gregory SP $130

Leave it to CLAE to add another stylish, highly affordable and purchase-worthy sneaker to its spring offering. The Gregory SP uses CLAE’s Standard Premium cupsole for comfort and durability, and blends a sporty silhouette with a clean white-and-grey suede colorway.  Those two design features make it easy to wear with a lightweight spring cardigan and slim light wash denim, or else alongside on-trend cargo pants and a rugged short-sleeve henley.

With styling potential and premium design details throughout the line, we think you’ll be more than happy with any spring sneaker you pick up — trust us on that.
