Everyone dreams of escaping to the Bahamas, Maldives or some balmy tropical destination during the summer. Unfortunately, the reality is that most of us will be riding out the heatwave in the city, sweating our way through our daily commute, and feeling the FOMO as we scroll through beachy vacation shots on Instagram. But who says that one has to leave the city to feel a sense of escape? At HBX, we believe the best way to be one with nature is to wear it on your feet. We’ve curated a selection of sneakers that take you away to faraway natural destinations, from the tropical jungle to the surface of the moon. Even if you are slumming it in the city this summer, your sneaker game will be at new heights.
