To make it as a couple, especially in Hollywood, you really need to be on the same page. There are too many barriers in place for couples to be disjointed, even when it comes to the tiniest detail. Kaia Gerber and Austin Butler, who are rumored to have gotten together in December 2021, get that, which is why the two were spotted wearing matching baseball hats and donning two of the most 2023-coded sneakers on their recent daytime date in Los Angeles. Clearly, they're on the same page. 

While out and about celebrating the Elvis actor's 32nd birthday, Gerber chose a cutoff white tank top, paint-stained blue trousers, and Onitsuka Tiger's viral Mexico 66 sneakers in white, blue, and red. Accessory-wise, she added a faded blue hat, oversize sunglasses, and a simple canvas tote bag. Equally casual was Butler's outfit. He wore a black T-shirt, matching paint-stained pants, and a pair of Vans' Authentic lace-ups, another eternally buzzy sneaker style, with his own blue cap.
