Last fall we told you that wedge sneakers were here to stay, and this year we’re seriously coveting slip-ons, but there’s another sneaker that has the fashion world buzzing: Nikes. That’s right, we don’t mean the cool high-top or wedge styles, we mean full-on Nike athletic sneakers, like the ones you wear to the gym.
The Nike trend was first spotted where all the best fashion inspiration comes from: the streets. These sneakers have been a street style favorite for some time now, and we don’t think they’re going away anytime soon. Nikes consistently pop-up on the feet of street style subjects week after week, and we promise they aren’t being snapped leaving the gym. In fact, they’re usually captured in these shoes outside fashion week shows or just going about their everyday lives. It’s kind of cool to see the high-fashion clothes mixed with the age-old sneaker.
The trick to mastering this trend is to get a pair of Nikes that are either crazy bright/colorful or all black and sleek. Either way, you can wear the sneakers now as a fashion statement and keep them forever as your gym shoes. Now that’s a trend we can definitely invest in!
