4 Breathable Sneakers for Summer

Look Cool in Wool Sneakers

Looking for sneakers that are cool in more ways than one? Our Wool Sneakers are the one for you! Made from a thin layer of our Merino Wool material, these sneakers are temperature regulating and moisture wicking. This means that cool air is trapped in the sneaker, and any sweat that your foot produces is wicked away, keeping your feet cool and dry even through the hottest day.

Lightweight Merino Runners

If you’re looking for a more athletic sneaker this summer, then you can’t go wrong with our Merino Runners. Again, being made from merino wool, these sneakers will keep your feet cool and sweat-free all summer long. They are also made with an EVA sole, making them super lightweight, so you won’t even notice that you’re wearing sneakers!

Wool Cross X for Trail Running

If you’re in need of breathable sneakers for an active and outdoor lifestyle, then we recommend our Wool Cross X. These are the world’s first wool sports shoes, and just like our other sneakers, you get all the benefits that come with merino wool. From being breathable and keeping your feet cool, to having that barefoot feeling that means you don’t have to wear socks! These sneakers also have a microgrip sole making it perfect for any terrain from rocky ground to sidewalks.

Casual Merino Wool Knit Look

Our final pair of breathable sneakers for summer are our Merino Wool Knit Sneakers. These stylish sneakers are made from our merino wool, allowing cool air pockets to form and keep your feet cool even in the hottest weather!

Like our other sneakers, these are super comfortable and moisture wicking meaning you can go sock free! Merino wool also has anti-microbial properties so your shoes won’t smell after a day in the sun! Even better, all our sneakers are machine washable!
