Sneakers are a constant in the fashion world in that some type of sneaker is always *in style* and v. trendy. Back in the late ’90s and early 2000s, platform sneakers were all the rage. Converse sneakers were huge while I was in high school.
A few years ago, we were all tottering around in sneaker wedges, and the last year or two, it’s been impossible to go anywhere without seeing at least one person in a pair of slip-on sneakers. 2016 is no exception – right now, athletic sneakers that look like they’re made more for the gym than lifestyle are on everyone’s style wish lists. It’s been interesting to watch sneakers grow in popularity.
While they have clearly always been popular, it wasn’t until a few years ago that athletic-looking sneakers became Fashion Editor Worthy, gracing the elegant feet of editors in the office or style bloggers making their way to Fashion Week. It wasn’t until quite recently that sneakers became glam and chic, not just a comfortable option. And while I first resisted this, even I now cannot deny their appeal – Nike and Adidas, just to name two brands, have introduced some truly terrific shoes that look good and feel good. I’m on the hunt for a pair myself now!
You really can’t go wrong with this trend. Pick the right pair and these sneakers can take you from the gym to out with your friends in no time flat. And, hey, no judgement if you’re buying them with zero intention of working out. That’s not the only reason sneakers exist!
