The Turquoise Sneakers You'll Wear All Summer

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked editorial director Izzy Grinspan.

Vans Authentic Lo Pro mint sneakers, $74.81 at Asos

One of the the tragedies of being five feet tall is that it's really hard to pull off shoes that cut you above the ankle. So while I love the look of all the brightly colored high-tops currently in stores for spring, I've resigned myself to the fact that they're probably not for me. Instead, I'm going to go old-school with a pair of mint Lo Pro sneakers from Vans. They come in a fun, eye-grabbing color, but the shape is feminine and streamlined—perfect for throwing on with cut-offs or a dress on those spring and summer days when you can't wait to get outside.
