As February turns into March and the snow begins to melt off the sidewalks, sneakerheads worldwide rejoice. Spring is the time to finally lace up those kicks you've stored away in a box all winter, fearful of the damage salty slush may cause. With spring fashion season kicking into high gear, new sneakers are flooding the market, with more than a few sport eye-popping designs. This is especially true for kicks like the Air Jordan XX8 and Jeremy Scott's "Letters," two shoes with bold designs that have left sneaker lovers nervous about stepping out of the house in a pair.

Fear not, hypebeasts. We headed down to Heart & Sole, a clothing and sneaker boutique in Cleveland, to get some tips on how to match up an outfit with these outside-the-box sneakers. We also asked the guys about matching a more traditional sneaker. Click through the slideshow to see the results, and kick off the spring season with a bang.
