Top Sneaker Trends to Try Now (That aren’t Ugly)

My Top Sneaker Trends to Try Now

I don’t know about you, but I am starting to question some of the sneaker trends that are coming in for Spring. The “ugly” sneaker trend is just that. I don’t feel like taking on the challenge of making “golden girls” sneakers look good with my day to day style.ย I’m hoping you feel the same way ๐Ÿ˜‰

That being said, there are a handful (some old that are sticking around, some new) that I would love to share with you.ย Sneakers are my personal go-to on a daily basis. Most days it’s about running to get things done as opposed to walking, and that’s not fun in heels. I have definitely hit the stage in life where comfort is very important!! Here are a handful of my current favourite sneaker trends. Shop the links at the end of the post!ย ♥

Top Sneaker Trends For Spring & Summer

  1. New Balance Metallic Sneaker – Still more on the athletic side, but comfortable, good support and THEY ARE METALLIC!! You can’t go wrong with that ๐Ÿ˜‰ Paired easily with a jeans & t-shirt look..
  2. Madewell x Veja Embroidered Sneaker – If you love Golden Goose sneakers but don’t like the price tag, these are a great alternative. There are endless ways to style these statement shoes ๐Ÿ˜‰
  3. Vince Wallace Platform SneakerA classic style that not only gives you extra height, but is great for dressing up or down.
  4. Vans Old Skool in Mahogany/Blush – Add a feminine yet sporty touch for spring with these old classics in blush colour!
  5. Soludos Espadrille Platform Sneaker – With a slightly smaller platform, these roped trim tennis sneakers are great for travel and warm weather!
  6. Adidas Everyn Perforated Low Top Sneaker – This shoe is forecasted to be one of the “must-have” styles, according to Who What Wear, and replace the old classics like the Stan Smiths. I’m sure every influencer in your Instagram feed will be sporting these in no time ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hey Samantha!
    Yay for sneaker season, although this snow makes it hard to think spring and sneakers!

    I love those Vince wallace Sneaks, are they only available online or are there any stores in the Vancouver area that carry them?

      I see they are on the Saks off 5th website, so they could potentially be in store too!! They have a location at Park Royal ๐Ÿ˜‰
