4 Sneaker Trends That Are Going To Be Everywhere This Fall (& They’re Not Slip-Ons)

It’s no secret that sneakers have pushed out practically all other footwear styles from our daily outfit rotation. Why wear something uncomfortable on your feet when you can wear a pair of sneakers with a dress and be called “chic”?

Sure, slip-on sneakers are a wardrobe staple — I personally own about 5 pairs — but sometimes it’s nice to switch things up a little bit. So with that in mind, we went on a hunt to explore some new sneaker styles and rounded up 4 trends that need to be added to your closet, ASAP.

4 New Sneaker Trends You Should Give A Try This Fall

1. Embellished Sneakers – These fun, detailed sneakers will add a little flair to any outfit. Don’t be afraid of rocking a pair of sneakers embellished with rhinestones, studs, or metallic finishes.

2. Knit Sneakers – Knit sneakers are easy to move in, comfortable, and super breathable. Available in a variety of styles and colorways, this sneaker will fit into your wardrobe seamlessly.

3. Platform Sneakers – As we head into fall, it’s time to trade in your platform sandals for a pair of platform sneakers. You’ll love the extra boost they give you!

4. Dad Sneakers – If you’re not on board with the dad sneakers trend just yet, the style is going to be sticking around for another season giving you one last chance to embrace it!
