Sneaking Around

The sneaker trend is a foot.

Platforms, wedges, stilettos, kitten heels, flats—shoes come in a variety of heights. But this latest trend will have you walking on solid ground. If you thought sneakers were just for the gym, consider this shoe trend for everything from causal Fridays to a chic night out. With options from designers like Hermes, Christian Louboutin and Celine, these sneakers are for anything but running errands.

For the Traditionalist

If the sneaker trend is new to you, ease into it. Start with something basic, like the Premiere Sneaker from Maison Martin Margiela. It’s a great way to transition into sneaker culture, because it’s an amped up version of what you’re used to wearing. If you’re curious about high-tops, try Celine’s Caramel Calfskin Sneakers. For those who love a logo, the Louis Vuitton Punchy Sneaker with either monogrammed pattern in white or Damier pattern in black are a great way to show off your style with the sneaker trend. Remember, pairing these sneakers with something unexpected is what the look is all about, so go ahead and try them with a skirt or dress.
