The trend-forward, yoga-centric fitness brand Alo came out with its first-ever sneaker this year. But if you blinked, you likely missed it: The sneaker sold out in a snap. Alo has restocked the sneaker three times since, but those restocks sold out quickly too.

Don’t worry Alo fans! You’re in luck — a new batch of the Alo x 01 Classic sneaker just dropped today. Check below to see if your size is still in stock. But hurry, this sneaker will likely sell out again, and fast.

Alo jumped on the white sneaker bandwagon with the Alo x 01 Classic. It’s the ideal neutral match for all your Alo outfits. 

Walk, dance, workout and run errands in this lightweight, vegan leather sneaker. It has a horseshoe-shape insole for alignment, stability, balance and comfort. Plus, catch this: The unisex sneaker makes you look two inches taller.

Note that this sneaker runs large and ordering a half-size down is recommended. 

Why we like these sneakers:

These comfortable sneakers are neutral and go with everything. If you’re looking for a height boost, they offer that too.
