Perfect summer sneakers do not exis... Wait a minute!

It can be hard to imagine trapping your feet in sweaty conventional sneakers during the hottest seasons. People often say that the perfect summer sneakers don't exist. But what if we told you that's not true? What if you don't need to sacrifice sneaker comfort to find the perfect pair for the summer season? Let's look at the qualities that make the ideal summer sneakers. 

What makes perfect summer sneakers?

When you’re looking for the perfect pair of sneakers to wear during the hot summer months, it's essential to prioritise three key features: excellent breathability to keep your feet cool and dry, lightweight construction for effortless all-day wear, and superior comfort for maximum enjoyment during any activity. Let’s look closer at what to look for when choosing perfect barefoot sneakers for summer. 


The human foot is an incredibly efficient cooling system with an impressive quarter of a million sweat glands. This natural design causes the foot to perspire, often releasing up to a quarter of a litre of liquid in a single day - a testament to the body's remarkable mechanisms. While such profuse sweating is uncommon, it's essential to recognise that the foot maintains a steady sweat production throughout the day. The intensity of sweating can vary depending on physical activity and weather conditions. It's widely acknowledged that people tend to sweat more during physical exertion and warm weather. As a result, choosing summer footwear that prioritises breathability is crucial. Sneakers crafted from knitted fabric offer excellent breathability and quick drying, allowing the foot to breathe, resulting in a more comfortable and fresher experience, especially during hot and active days. 

Lightweight construction

In the midst of rising temperatures, the longing to shed heavy layers and fabrics becomes increasingly pronounced. This applies not just to clothing but also to footwear. During the scorching summer months, the appeal of ultralight shoes that provide the sensation of walking barefoot cannot be overstated. Nothing is worse than the discomfort of feeling like you're lugging around lead weights on your feet in the blistering heat. In the summertime, the principle of less being more holds true. The weight of the shoe holds particular significance when participating in summer sports. In the midst of high temperatures, the body exerts itself more during physical activities, making the selection of lightweight sports sneakers even more advantageous. 


Pursuing perfect comfort transcends all seasons, but there's an undeniable allure to experiencing ultimate comfort during summer. Just as our emotions ebb and flow with the changing weather, so does our perception of comfort. In the winter, our urgent need to warm up quickly may overshadow our appreciation for comfort, but in the summer, we're naturally uplifted and seek to revel in every moment. Few things are more disheartening than being plagued by cramped toes or achy heels. This is where barefoot shoes come into play with their wide, anatomically shaped toe design, offering comfort and a profound sense of liberation. Once you've savoured the freedom of barefoot comfort, the thought of reverting to conventional footwear may become inconceivable. The ultra-thin sole of these shoes even provides a delightful micro-massage effect, allowing you to relish every step on sand, pebbles, or grass as if walking barefoot.

The upper part of the shoe is designed with a unique blend of knitted fabric and microfiber, ensuring excellent breathability. The material is not only highly flexible but also incredibly soft to the touch, making your feet feel like they're hugged by a cloud. The high breathability of the upper ensures that your feet stay fresh and comfortable even on the hottest days or during intense physical activity. Additionally, the flexible upper makes it easy to slip the shoes on, and the laces allow for a snug, customised fit. The practical loop on the shoe also allows for easy attachment to your backpack for your summer adventures. 

Currently available in three versatile colours - Black, Gray & White, and Blue & White - the Be Lenka Stride boasts a minimalistic and timeless design. Its "sock" cut and universal colours make it a must-have for anyone leading an active lifestyle. These shoes offer ultimate comfort for sports, work, or leisure. The Be Lenka Stride pairs effortlessly with sporty outfits and more casual ensembles, making it a versatile addition to your wardrobe.

More than just sneakers

Our Velocity, Stride, and Swift models are not only stylish and comfortable but also environmentally friendly. They are crafted entirely from vegan materials, emphasising minimising environmental impact. These premium shoes are designed with sustainability in mind and feature stitched soles for exceptional durability. Our ultimate goal is to ensure your complete satisfaction, so we take every possible measure to maximise the lifespan of our models. 

All three models are equipped with the ActiveGrip Neo sole specially designed for dynamic movement. Its distinct protrusions offer excellent grip, ensuring reliable traction even in unexpected summer showers. While these models are designed for dry conditions only, they will have no problems navigating wet surfaces. The sole is designed to enhance proprioception and support natural foot biomechanics, providing optimal balance and stability across diverse environments. 

Moreover, all three models are fitted with a removable insole crafted from a blend of recycled PU and polyester. Boasting antibacterial properties and excellent moisture-wicking abilities, the insole is invaluable in warm weather. To maintain hygiene and extend the insole's lifespan, it is recommended to air-dry it after each use and avoid direct heat sources or dryers. Regular cleaning and periodic replacement, at least once a year, are crucial to prevent bacterial and fungal growth that could lead to hygiene issues, toe-nail and foot problems, and unpleasant odours. 

If you’ve been searching for the perfect summer sneakers that offer unparalleled comfort, breathability, and a featherlight feel, look no further than Be Lenka’s remarkable collection. Whether you opt for the distinct design of the Be Lenka Velocity, the functional and versatile Be Lenka Swift, or the unique "sock-like" Be Lenka Stride, each pair is guaranteed to exceed your expectations. Whether engaging in sports, heading to work, embarking on a vacation, or simply enjoying some leisure time, these summer barefoot sneakers from Be Lenka will never cease to amaze you. You'll find yourself reluctant to take them off, even amidst the scorching summer sun or the onset of brisk autumn weather.
