From Blended Sneaker Designs to Futuristic Sporty Sandals

 - May 29, 2016
The top May 2016 sneaker designs highlights a number of buzzworthy footwear designs from leading brands like adidas, Nike, Puma and Reebok.

The PUMA x McQ Tech Runner Sandal is an experimental sneaker-sandal concept that seems like a natural progression, given the recent obsession with slides and Birkenstocks. The unique collaborative shoe is part of PUMA's Spring Summer 2016 collection and features a variety of materials including mesh.

Meanwhile, the NikeLab Free Huarache Carnivore is an ambitious sneaker design that combines the silhouettes of three previous Nike models. Combining the Free sole and an upper that melds the look of the Huarache and Carnivore, the sneakers are available in an emerald green and black colorway that references the brand's original Carnivores. The sneakers are ideal for summer and are perfect for showing off unique sneaker expertise.
