Even if you know your Stan Smiths from your Sambas and your Yeezys from your Superstars, shopping for a new pair of Adidas can lead you down a rabbit hole of open tabs and sneaker blogs. With new styles, designer collaborations, and colorways dropping practically on the daily, it can take some serious dedication to figure out which pair has enough style cred to pass muster with sneakerheads while also fitting seamlessly into your everyday wardrobe.
To make the experience a little more manageable, we’ve rounded up the best Adidas to buy for summer 2016 ($1,000 resale Yeezys not included, because we’re sensible like that). Ahead, shop sporty ZX Flux trainers, fashion-approved Raf Simons sneaks, classic Campus 80s, and more.
