Very, very, verrrrry slowly, winter is coming to an end (well, at least it's supposed to...) and, apparently, sneaker designers are already running to a flowery, tropical paradise.
Earlier this year, SneakerNews.com proclaimed "floral" as the new "camo" -- naming it the number four sneaker trend to look out for in 2014 behind the debut of the Air Jordan 29, Lebron's "Championship Pack," and Nike's "un-retroed Posite" models. It's safe to say they were spot on.
Possibly following the lead of the men's spring runway trends, new shoe lines have emerged sporting colorful floral and fauna. While Nike leads the pack, featuring everything from surfboards to neon hibiscus, everyone else seems to be in on the trend, too. Converse even has a shoe named "Tropics."
Got a sunny spring break planned? Get a running start with these beach-worthy kicks.
