I never really liked wearing any other sneakers other then classic white and high red high tops Converse but since more and more both athletic footwear labels and fashion houses started to really look into and design fashionable sneakers, intended to be worn outside of the gym and even suitable for more dressy looks, I really found a lot of gorgeous, desirable styles to combine with skater skirts and dresses in Summer. Well….you can even wear it with the tutu if you like!
Naturally, first I looked into leopard print ones (Adidas) which are actually sports shoes for gym workouts but look fab enough to wear around town. They also have a casual styles.
Nike and Adidas launched a several big name designer collaborations as well.
NikeLab x JFS launched a collaboration recently with Berlin-based Acronym designer Johanna F. Schneider but they have a wide variety of customization options on their style sneakers like: Nike Air Pegasus 83, Nike Internationalist, Nike Roshe One iD, Nike Juvenata Print and my favorite Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 32 Photosynthesis.
Adidas has an ongoing collaboration with Stella McCartney (Adidas by Stella McCartney) but they also work with Yohji Yamamoto (Y-3), Raf Simons, Rick Owens, Mary Katrantzou and Jeremy Scott.
Other brands who stepped up to the occasion with fancy fashion sneakers are Reebok, Puma and New Balance, with latest being my favorite of the tree.
Did you also go crazy for this trendy but also comfy sneaker styles? Which one is your favorite?
