The Find: obnoxiously colourful footwear that even Justin Bieber would love

Toronto Fashion Week made it clear that vibrant colours are back in rotation this spring—it’s already a widely embraced trend that just won’t be ignored. Couple that with the concurrent push toward casual athletic fashion, and this obnoxiously colourful pair of Asics sneakers at Champs ($179) becomes a good way to adopt the colours and the feeling of the season without succumbing to a head-to-toe neon ensemble (heck, even Justin Bieber is making his ostentatious high-top Supra kicks a signature). Of course, not everybody is as boisterous as Biebsy, so for the more demure woman, we recommend a classic heel with slightly softer hues, like the Stuart Weitzman Livia shoes at Holt Renfrew ($395). Or you could be boring and wear gladiator sandals or dock shoes.
