    1 / 8 Amp up your weekend ensemble with these casual kicks.

    Here’s a scenario: Your office setting demands that you wear a pair of high heels, so you have no choice but to suffer in them for hours on end. At the end of a workday, you head out the door and slip into a pair of foldable flats that you’ve got stashed in your bag, breathing a sigh of relief. Sounds familiar?

    Which is why we say hang up your stilettos when it comes to the weekends, girl. Our go-to footwear would be the reliable ol’ sneakers — they are fun, edgy, cool and even feminine, if you know where to look. Ditch the feet torture and slip into one of these. Your feet will thank you for the break.

  • Adidas Alphaedge 4D Parley For The Oceans Shoes, $450
    2 / 8 Adidas Alphaedge 4D Parley For The Oceans Shoes, $450

    This pair has quite a few interesting details. It comes in a cool pale green shade. Its lattice weave midsole is made with 3D printing that incorporates an added fourth element to give its “4D” name; that is, athlete and consumer data to ensure that each stride is optimised and energy loss is minimised. Its Primeknit upper is made with 85 per cent upcycled ocean plastic waste collected from beaches and coastal communities as part of the collaboration with Parley for the Oceans, an environmental advocacy company. A great companion, whether it is for an errand run or a go on the treadmill.

  • Onitsuka Tiger OK Basketbell LO, $169
    3 / 8 Onitsuka Tiger OK Basketbell LO, $169

    You might pass this Onitsuka Tiger pair off as another patterned sneaker design. But behind the colourful detail lies a rich history of Japanese craftsmanship called sakiori by the Sansa Sakiori Koubo of Saccora Japan. The sakiori woven technique applied here uses old synthetic leather strips that are sewed together to create a new material using a traditional loom. Great for those who want to support environmentally-conscious products or heritage techniques passed down through generations, or if you simply want something vibrant to inject some colour into your shoe collection. This design also comes in a pink, high top silhouette.

    5 / 8 New Balance Pride Sneakers, $149

    With a rainbow colourway, this New Balance pair was created specifically to celebrate Pride month. We love that the neutral black colour is its base shade, as it makes the pair wearable with your everyday outfits without being too OTT. We see this as the perfect finish to a white top and pink pleated skirt combo. This is a limited edition design, which means catch them before they are gone. You can get them at New Balance Paragon, Bugis Junction and Jewel Changi Airport outlets.

    8 / 8 Veja Wata White Pekin, approx $124

    Like a great pair of jeans, a pair of white sneakers is a wardrobe staple that everyone needs in their wardrobe. We prefer ours to come with just a touch of colour but with minimal risk, like this Veja pair. The red V logo adds just enough colour to jazz up the pair without distracting from its minimalist aesthetics.
