White sneakers have had their day in the sun, but now that it’s 2018 we need that new new. What’s fresh for spring 2018–at least according to editors, who can’t stop writing about them (see below)–is the shiny pink sneaker. We’re seeing it everywhere!

To start, behold the new Satin Lux collection from Vans, available in four colorways: Blush, Live Silver, Gray and the piece de resistance: Rose!

The editors at Refinery 29 are freaking out because the new collection is reminiscent of Vans cult collaboration with Opening Ceremony, which is no longer available. To get your hands on something even remotely close to that It-girl sneaker, this is the way to go, they say. You’re going to want these, they say. The Satin Lux collection also comes in the Old Skool style, FYI (the blush is pretty!):

Of course, Rose Gold Vans are nothing new–but we’re really starting to see the whole “the shinier, the pinker, the better” rule ring true across all sneaker brands. Maybe it’s because millennial pink is here to stay, but this trend is bubbling up in a way that we haven’t seen sneaker trends bubble up in a little while.

Meanwhile, over on Popsugar, editors are literally swooning for the new Nikes. I believe the exact words were “Sweet god, these new Nike sneakers are iridescent AND pink.”

I mean… they are pretty special:

We’re not blushing, you’re blushing.

Shopping editor Mary Cate Williams writes, “These Nike Air Force 1 ’07 Premium Shoes ($110) combine two of our favorite things: millennial pink and iridescence.” That they do!

Almost gone: these Nike Air Force 1 ’07 Premium Shoes ($110) are only left in 6.5!

And to close out, let’s not sleep on these custom metallic Vans:

So, there you have it–undeniable proof that shiny pink sneakers are here to stay so. So–let us know in the comments: do you love this trend, or are they totally extra?
