Gone are the days when sneakers were only reserved for exercising or running errands. Sneakers can make a fashion statement and, with the latest trends, your own style is about to get elevated. As with all trends, some styles may be outrageous and loud but remember, many different variations and adaptions of the same trend can be found – so just find your perfect pair. Here are our top picks of trendy sneakers…
The Dad Sneaker
Also known as the ugly sneaker – this shoe reigned supreme last year and it continues to steal the show. We see solid colours and prints coming through with the latest releases. It may be a tad ugly, but we love it!
We have said this before and will say it again – prints are everywhere! Last year we saw a lot of floral prints but it’s become more subdued as animal prints have taken over.
The classic white sneaker won’t go out of style soon. Opt for a thick and chunky one or keep it retro with a flat and light weight silhouette. Minimalistic white sneakers are always on trend.
Not keen to go all the way metallic? Then you’ll love the metallic trend in sneakers – it’s all about the detail. Just a hint won’t blind the eyes.
