6. Color Blocks
Sneakers have always been a way to express your unique personality. Just ask any teenager who wrote all over their prized Converse All-Stars.
And if you’re all about funky style, then you’ll love this new sneaker trend — blocks of bold color all over. Instead of solid bright colors or adding stripes, these sneaks have a few bright bold hues arranged in geometric patterns all over the sneaks. It’s a lot to look at but in the best way possible.
Some sneaks achieve this look by having two or three blocks of colors on the sides of the sneakers. Others create these color blocks by having the body of the shoe be one color, the tongue another color, and the sole another. No matter how the sneaker achieves the look, the end result is eye-catching to say the least.
These shoes make your feet pop and add a funky flair to any simple outfit.
7. High Tops
Everyone loves a good pair of high top sneakers. We’re looking at you Converse! But this season, Converse isn’t the only style in high top sneakers. This trend is a throwback to the high top sneakers that dominated in the 80s and early 90s.
We’re talking chunkier high top sneaks with accents like Velcro straps or bright, patterned laces. And high tops with bright colors and crazy patterns are in too.
Depending on the style you buy, high tops can pair with the most casual outfit or the most glam outfit. The best thing about high tops is that they can look like a stylish low boot rather than a sneaker. So, if you wear a pair of metallic high tops with a little black dress, it won’t even look like you’re wearing sneakers. But your feet will be much happier than if you were rocking some ankle boots
Whatever you’re wearing, you’ll look amazing rocking a pair of high tops.
