The end of summer is almost here! Now, is the time to say yes to all those BBQs and beach parties you get invited to every week. Instead of trying to figure out what to wear, make things easy for yourself and don your favorite outfit: hoodies/jeans/sneakers.

The Sneakers: The Bab v2, Cadet, $79
The Bab v2 sneakers have a sleek look and runner-inspired silhouette but are perfect for the street. These sneakers are an updated version of Greats original sneaker with a more tech feel and a new price tag of $79.
Here’s what’s new directly from Greats brand, “New for 2017, we’ve future-proofed the Bab v2 with some of the most advanced tech in the business. Inspired by cutting-edge alpine jackets, we used high-frequency tape to secure the seams, ensuring maximum durability under both weather and wear. Then, we swapped our traditional stitched-on details for heat transfers, further slimming the v2’s final weight (under 12oz per pair, for those counting at home). Last but not least, we added grosgrain pull-tabs for easy accessibility. Sometimes, the old ways really do work the best.”
The Bab v2 sneakers run a bit small so order a half-size larger and if your feet are wider a full-size larger.
