Of all the trends that will be dominating 2018, sneaker mania has got to be the biggest one of them all, and the selection from which we can choose has never been so wide. There’s a sneaker for everyone, whether your style is colorful, sleek, more of a statement or classic. A lot of old-school sneakers are also making a comeback this year, but with a modern touch. Here we selected five sneakers that should definitely be part of your wardrobe.
“The chunkier, the better” is what defines this ‘in your face’ sneaker trend. Tons of designers from Balenciaga to Louis Vuitton have been incorporating chunky sneakers into their collections as the main focus around which the looks were built. The chunky sneakers are a modern interpretation of the 90’s silhouette that defined an era.
Another trend coined by the trendsetting fashion brand, Balenciaga. The “Sock boot” dominated the previous Fall/Winter season, but has now evolved into the latest sneaker trend known as the Sock-sneaker. This hybrid between a sock and a sneaker is utterly comfortable and futuristic looking. Making it the perfect sneaker to complement a more tailored look.
A lot of 90’s trends have been emerging onto the fashion scene for the last couple of seasons including sneakers. The biggest comeback has definitely been the classic Nike Air Max 97 in more color-ways than we can count. It was the number one sneaker last Fall and isn’t going anywhere anytime too soon. Many other old-school sneaker icons like New Balance and Fila are also back on top, with many limited edition collections to be released this year.
Pastel color-ways are a huge trend for the upcoming season, from cotton candy pink to bubblegum green and baby blues. Pastel sneakers are a great way to add a pop of color to a more monochrome look.
If you prefer more primary color’s over pastel, then no need to worry, because this last trend is all about color blocking. Color blocked or “Rainbow” sneakers are going to be all the rage this Spring Summer. Blues, reds, and yellows are the main theme of this trend that’s appearing in a lot of collections for the upcoming seasons.
