You know what is the most interesting fact about the latest shoe trends of 2018 for women? The most trendiest and right on fashion radar pair of shoes you buy this season would probably be the one your dad had already flaunted back in his day. Interesting, is not it? The dad sneakers trend is the new ‘it’ thing on the fashion scene and celebrities like Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian have already been spotted rocking this trend out on the streets.
The ‘ugly’ chunky massive Triple S sneakers from Balenciaga is what Gigi Hadid was seen flaunting on streets with the nerdy white socks and a pair of leggings and a hoodie. That is not the only occasion where Gigi preferred wearing kicks over heels; the cool and edgy dressed down look featuring the 90s inspired sketchers are what she rocked on multiple occasions. Men’s inspired shoes were huge in the New York fashion week for spring/summer 2018. The clean white sneakers, while still relevant, are not as favored as the multicolor statement ‘dad sneakers’ everybody is talking about now. It is only wise that you pick a pair either from Balenciaga if you are ready to commit to this trend or grab one of the more affordable options from Nordstrom such as Nike Air Huarache City Sneakers.
How do you know that a trend has really gone viral? When J. crew starts doing it that is when you know things are pretty serious. The brand has an entire line for women sneakers that you may call an embodiment of the dad sneaker trend as seen in the Paris Haute Couture week. With pleated miniskirts, printed leggings, yoga pants, ripped jeans and embellished denim shorts – the fashion bloggers, editors and supermodels rocked sneakers with almost everything in the streets of Paris during the fashion week.
A great fashion inspiration to style the apparently ugly but pretty cool dad sneakers would be Kendell Jenner. She went completely 90s by pairing dad shoes with dad jeans: she went out on streets wearing a loose faded denim jeans and a grey long coat with Yeezys, the purposefully ugly shoes. A similar look was carried by Kim as well; she paired a basic sleeveless crop top with leggings and a pair of Adidas Yeezys.
Hailey Baldwin was seen wearing the Balenciaga Triple S sneakers with an oversized shirt and shorts, that is another look you can copy if effortlessly chic urban is what you are going for.
