If white sneakers are truly fashion heroes, then dare we say that Taylor Swift’s beige sneakers are the anti-heros that will complete your summer wardrobe? 

The “Anti-Hero” singer and her potential new boyfriend, The 1975’s Matty Healy, were spotted leaving a recording studio together in New York City, wearing casual ’fits. Taking a break from her bejeweled Eras Tour ensembles, Swift wore a $78 Free People skort (which is selling out quickly), a baggy NYU sweatshirt, a brown purse, and a pair of sneakers that appeared to be from luxury brand The Row. Ringing in at $750, they looked comfy, stylish, and different — something we’ve been aiming to accomplish for our warm-weather wardrobe.

In her hit song, Swift sings, “It must be exhausting always rooting for the anti-hero,” but it’s actually the opposite when discussing beige sneakers, because they’re so chic and practical. The sandy color feels more upscale and understated, while simultaneously hiding dirt, rather than highlighting it on a starker white hue. Additionally, the neutral color can coordinate well with various summer ensembles featuring pretty pastels or earthier-toned fall and winter looks, too.  

Beige Sneakers Like Taylor Swift's

Give yourself a little lift with the under-$27 Tuopin platform sneakers from Amazon. They have 1.3-inch soles, a water-resistant faux leather body, and a lighter hue that’s a unique white-ish, gray-ish color. 

The rounded toe and white laces are still sporty enough to wear with velvety soft leggings and a sweatshirt for your alma mater, like Swift, but they could also be worn with a flowy maxi dress for dressier occasions, too.

If shoes from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s brand The Row aren’t in your budget, opt for a pair from a brand that the latter sister has worn. The Full House actress was spotted wearing New Balance sneakers last year, and since Swift wore a beige pair, we’re thinking that you probably want the best of both worlds. 

One shopper said that they have been wearing this $85 style for 20+ years, and it’s “still the most comfortable sneaker.” Another shopper shared that they have “good padding with some arch support.” Available in sizes for both men and women, the rubber-soled and breathable textile-lined shoes are also a Zappos best-seller in the Classic Sneakers category.

Another pair of beige sneakers you should score? The Cariuma Ibi Lows in the shade Sand Knit. While Swift didn’t wear ones from this sustainable sneaker brand, the beige color is super similar, and other celebrities, like Ashton Kutcher and Helen Mirren, have, in fact, worn Cariuma kicks. Many of the sizes are only available for pre-order right now, but, bonus, you can get free shipping!
