The Future Is Here: Sneakers with Elevated Energy

This season is looking bright with next-generation shoes that pair high-tech details with a disruptive design.

Blurring the lines between today and tomorrow, there’s a new generation of future-forward sneakers hitting the style scene right now—extroverted designs that bring a rebellious attitude and unapologetic confidence to shoes that push all the right buttons. Major disrupters coded with cutting-edge technology, these new-wave kicks promise one thing: Expect the unexpected. 
Bold, brave and pushing the boundaries , this season’s futuristic sneakers exude amplified energy and the attitude you need for workouts or play, fashion or downtime—or whatever your day may bring. These big personalities command attention, demanding you dress from the feet up. Meet the lineup of next-level players.

Game On 

Since its inception in the ’90s, the Instapump Fury has been a sneaker game-changer with its decisively forward vision and innovative technology. Powering the next step in its evolution, the latest iteration disrupts the system and challenges the style status quo. As much at home in a video game as it is IRL, the new Instapump Digi-Warp riffs off its predecessor’s edgy reputation, presenting a pixelated design in delicious ombré color effects. When it comes to styling, a sneaker as fierce as this deserves an equally disruptive ensemble. Team it with these black Dreamblend Cotton Knit Pants, then add a Les Mills sports bra under a cream-colored oversize hoodie.

High Tech

If you’re seeking that high-vibe innovative sneaker technology in a more streamlined shoe, look to the Zig Kinetica II to bring major momentum to both your workouts and play. Elevated in attitude and limitless in its possibilities, the Zig’s evolved Energy System has a shell that channels and returns kinetic energy to your stride and an outsole that acts like a rubber band springing you forward. These Zigs aren’t afraid to be noticed, arriving in dramatic black with bold licks of color splashing through the design. Wear yours with a look that’s as brave as your footwear, starting with the Lux Bold High-Rise Vector Block tights with a futuristic vector pattern. Pair with a VB performance tank top and complete the outfit with a Classics Vector cropped track jacket.

Loud + Proud

Channel your inner Cardi B for a future that’s lit. Following up on her nearly sold-out neon reimagining of the Club C, the new lineup goes big on Cardi B energy, injecting futuristic flair and fun into the classic style. (Think stacked soles laced with major mood and attitude.) Amp up your look with Cardi Coated Club C Double shoes in Chalk, then style it out with Workout Ready leggings and a Training Essentials bra top in Proud Pink. Finish things off with the MYT jacket for all the feels.

Amplified Active

Driving you full throttle into the future with pro-level technology, Nano X1 sneakers are a bold and fearless choice, perfect if you love to train and play hard. Responsive Floatride Energy Foam provides spring-like cushioning, while an innovative heel clip brings stability and lightness to your run. Style your pair with clothes that are ready to sweat hard and play harder, like these Les Mills colorblock leggings with a mesh back tank top, combined with an oversized retro hoodie in Energy Glow for the win.

Wild + Free

Trailblazers, get ready to embrace your spirit of adventure and love of the great outdoors with the ZigWild Trail 6. Don’t let its ’90s throwback look deceive you, this high-spec sneaker is infused with innovative ZigTech outsoles to disperse energy from heel to toe, letting you run wild and free wherever you roam. It’s only fitting that your adventure-craving kicks partner with these Modern Safari Lux Bold leggings for a look that is true wanderlust. Mix in a Training Essentials graphic tee and this shiny woven jacket for full effect.
