Big, bold and bordering on the ridiculous, I just can't get enough of the ultrasonic sneakers I keep seeing on the feet of the little kids over here. Athletic runners, re-worked hi-tops and mid-profile dunks have all been given Rainbow Brite makeovers. The key to super fresh footwear is vivid blocking of both materials and colour; suede, metallic, gloss, print and high contrast colourways work side by side. Great for late UK summer-into-autumn, or perfect for Sydney's winter climate, they look A1 worn with skinny jeans or leggings. Here are my global top picks. Some of these are currently in the sales; grab them while you can!

1. Classic Nike dunks.   2. Perfect harmony; metallic meets matt, by Adidas.
3. New Balances dragged through an actual rainbow.   4. Vans' fabric-blocked beauties.
5. Bargain colour-contrast trainers from M & Co.   6. Puma's touch of gold.
7. Deluxe Michael Kors hi-tops.   8. Red Hand Gang sneakers from Paper Planes.
9. Matt & shine sorbet primaries by DC Shoes.   10. Nike's new Beaches of Rio range.
11. Baby Puma's blocked in blues.   12. Cool and zesty by Superfly.
