Having summer season all year long here in Singapore, our wardrobe typically consists of airy, comfortable apparel like the billowy parachute pants that have made a comeback this year and also gorgeous dresses that won’t trap heat.
This time, the latest summer trend that has been circulating all over social media might just help sweeten up the hot and humid weather we deal with throughout the year.
The trend we’re talking about is none other than the “melon cream” sneakers. That’s right, sneakers that show off a beautiful melon cream-like hue have been going viral on social media of late.
And whether or not you subscribe to the athleisure trend that has been the style of choice for almost everyone ever since the pandemic hit, we’re pretty sure sneakers in this beautiful pastel colourway would make a great addition to your shoe wardrobe.
Melon itself is definitely a summer fruit loved by many, so why not wear its lovely green shade on your heels too and add a pop of colour to your outfit?
Up ahead, check out the five sneakers we’ve rounded up for your shopping consideration. Bonus: these options are all extremely comfortable to walk in all day long!
1. New Balance 5740
An upgrade of the iconic New Balance 574 model, the 5740 shows off a beautiful medley of pastel colours and features a modern chunky look with a touch of retro vibes.
Apart from the pastel colourway, the shoe also provides you with all-day walking comfort. Fitting nice and snug on the feet, the New Balance 5740 gives you added comfort with its stitched overlays and is equipped with a lace-up enclosure that helps ensure a secure and fit grip when you’re out and about.

2. Nike Daybreak
This beautiful melon-coloured pair from Nike has been on the AVENUE ONE team’s wishlist for a while now – and for good reason.
Featuring two simple colour tones, this version of the Nike Daybreak complements a mint green shade with suede patches of a darker melon green hue to create a unique look for the shoe.
For a further pop of pastel, the signature Nike logo is dressed in a coral colour that reminds us of another type of melon called cantaloupe.
Its lowkey style also makes the shoe an easy finishing touch for any outfit.
Nike Daybreak retails for US$80 (~S$108.06) on Kicks Crew.

Its striking looks aside, you can also count on this pair to give you all-day walking comfort – and style.
