Chunky Sneakers $100 and Under
“Ugly” Dad Trainers Trend 2019
Growing up, I would always dig through my Mom’s closet and try to steal her shoes, clothes, and other accessories. Never in a million years did I think I would be rummaging through my Dad’s side of the closet to steal those “ugly” Dad shoes I once roasted him for as a teenager!
“Luxury sneakers continue to dominate the resale market, with the ubiquitous dad sneaker still reigning supreme,” said The RealReal Chief Merchant Rati Levesque. Designer brands like Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton put this trend back on the map recently and aren’t able to keep these shoes in stock.
The chunky sneaker trend is a comfortable, stylish, way to easily take your outfit to the next level and stand out. As you can see in the photo below, Dad shoes can and should be styled in various way! Go for a casual street look or dress up the chunky sneakers by adding a blazer to the outfit. There’s really no rules for how to style chunky sneakers which is always a bonus!
