Here we are again with yet another outrageous trend… The ugly sneakers, or chunky sneakers or dad sneakers… whatever you want to call them.
Thanks to Balenciaga, this trend has hit the fashion world with full force. These obnoxious sneakers have become an “it” girl favorite this season. It wasn’t long before other brands released their version of the ugly sneakers to appeal to the increasing demands for this style. From Louis Vuitton to Chanel, the luxury world paved the way for the high street when it comes to this trend. It wasn’t long before we started seeing these sneakers with a more affordable price tag in Zara, Missguided and other affordable retailers.
Although these sneakers are the hottest shoes of the moment, I really can’t see this trend being any more than just a fad. They’re a fun way to upgrade your sneaker game, but they are by no means a timeless piece. When it comes to crazy trends such as this one, you guys know that I prefer to save rather than splurge. If I don’t see myself wearing a style in the upcoming years, I won’t spend too much on it.
Therefore, I snagged these chunky sneakers from Missguided while they had a 50% off sale (they have that frequently). And I’m so glad that I got that extra discount.
Honestly, I’m not sure how I feel about this trend quite yet. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don’t. What I’m sure of is that this is just another fad, so save your money people!
