9. Nike Flyknit Racer
If you can get your hands on a pair of these, do it! Featuring one of the most revolutionary designs in the history of running sneakers, Nike’s Flyknit Racer has all the makings of a go-to summer shoe. It’s no wonder why retailers can’t keep them stocked on the shelves for long. Not to be confused with your grandma’s knitwear, the state-of-the-art knitted technology used in the shoe is incredibly breathable and lightweight. It acts like a second skin, which means you can rock the shoes without socks.
