5 Sneaker Trends Poised for a Glorious Takeover This Fall

From Bottega Veneta to Nike, see all the silhouettes are going viral.

As we continue to bring the coziness of our stay-at-home style into our everyday lives, we’re bringing playful sneaker trends along with us. Trainers that were once reserved for hiking through the woods or running a marathon have evolved into statement wardrobe essentials. During fashion month, several street style stars gave their favorite kicks a chance to see more of the world when they wore them to shows around the world, from New York to Paris.

Of course, the movement shines bright on the runway too, with labels stamping their logos on the sporty lace-up shoes and styling them with delightful mini skirts and charming dresses. Really, that’s the beauty of 2021s biggest sneaker trends: They’re versatile enough to be worn with anything.

So whether you’re looking for a splurge-worthy pair or simply want to test out a new style, you’re sure to find something fun to wear throughout the fall, below.

The ’90s Hiker

Close your eyes and picture your dad hiking in 1994. More than likely, he was wearing a pair of sneakers similar to these now uber-popular styles. Instead of reserving the retro silhouettes for workouts, whip them out a nostalgic Reebok or Asics pair the next time you want to wear a maxi dress for added comfort.

The Building Blocks

If you want the extra inches you get from heels without the sometimes hard-to-walk-in effect of a stiletto, a platform sneaker is the way to go. Converse recently gave its signature kicks the chunky makeover. And even Bottega Veneta is into the thick-soled trend.
