We’re in Love with Dad Sneakers

For several years now, sneakers have only been designed for the gym— they’ve become a casual shoe that can be worn for almost any occasion. 

It’s possible to wear sneakers with a custom-made suit, a flowy summer dress, a pencil skirt, jeans, or a sweatshirt, and it’s not uncommon to see a teenage mother and daughter wearing matching sneakers. In the sneakers world, anything and everything is possible.


The new big thing in the sneakers game are Dad shoes. These sneakers, starring and trending everywhere, are actually very clumsy and kind of awkward. They look like they came from your dad’s wardrobe from the ’80s when comfort outweighed style, and looks didn’t really matter. Awkward or not, Dad shoes are the hottest fashion statement right now, and they happen to be super comfortable—which we’re not mad about.


Almost every major fashion brand has recently come out with their version of this shoe. You can find Dad shoes made by Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Chanel, Nike, Adidas, Fila, Zara, and more.


To join this hot trend, choose the brand that’s most comfortable for you and just go with it!
