Yellow Sneakers: The Best Summer Fashion Statement
It’s impossible not to smile when you see a pair of yellow shoes. Yellow is one of those colors that instantly lifts the spirit. We have so many positive associations with the color yellow—not to mention a pair of yellow kicks is a major style plus.
Psychological Benefits of Wearing Yellow
Yellow is associated with brightness, energy, happiness, youth, and warmth. It inherently grabs our attention, as the color reflects a high amount of light. Yellow is thought to stimulate the left, or analytical side of the brain, so it is a good color to wear when you want to increase your mental acuity! More practically, you can add some variety to your sneaker rotation with a pop of color. More likely than not, you’ll feel revitalized and refreshed when you wear your yellow kicks!
How to Style a Yellow Sneaker
Wondering how to style your yellow kicks? Get inspired by some of the outfit ideas below.
1. An All-White Outfit
Stylish and fresh, an all-white outfit paired with our OCA Low Yellow Canvas makes a summer statement. The white laces, rubber outsole, and toe cap tie add a finishing touch to this classic sneaker silhouette, for an overall vibe of ease and effortless style.
2. Primary Colors
Yellow, red, and blue make up the three primary colors. When you wear either yellow and red or yellow and blue together, your outfit will naturally turn some heads. We’d give you style points for pairing yellow sneakers, like our IBI Slip-On in Yellow Knit with red shorts and a white or black shirt!
3. More Yellow
Full monochrome is hard to pull off, but we love a subtle pop of yellow elsewhere in your outfit to accent your shoes. For example, a sweater with a yellow stripe or a dress with a daisy print both look great with yellow sneakers.
We’ve already mentioned that yellow and blue are primary colors, but did you know that they are also complementary? That’s why our IBI Yellow Knit look so good with jeans. Keep your styling simple by wearing your yellow kicks with your favorite pair of jeans and a white button-down or tee.
Our women’s and men’s yellow sneakers are designed to bring joy to your life every day while helping the planet at the same time. Made with all-natural, sustainable materials—like durable, certified organic cotton canvas and perfectly weighted natural rubber outsoles—and handmade consciously, they’re guaranteed to put a pep in your step! Plus, tucked inside each pair is a set of supernaturally comfy insoles, made with cork + mamona oil. With every pair of our sustainable sneakers purchased, we plant two trees, so you can feel lighter knowing you are helping to offset carbon consumption.
