From a simple pair of running or basketball shoes, who would have thought how far the sneaker trend has gone as of now. This year we are seeing many revolutionary designs in the sneaker game. Before we end 2017 we are seeing another sneaker trend that will probably not stop and will continue to rise till 2018. We call it the 'Chunky Kicks'.
Started out from some of the quintessential sneaker brands such as New Balance, Nike and Kahru and quickly adapted and followed by luxury brands such as Raf Simon, Balenciaga, Gucci and Givenchy and even Kanye West on his own brand YEEZY and do not forget you favourite fast fashion stores such as Zara are definitely coming strong in designing and producing such footwear.
'Ugly' but 'Trendy and Classic' sneakers are mostly seen on-feet during the recent Fashion Week worldwide. Plenty of show-stoppers are rockin' and struttin' these chunky kicks. A somewhat orthopaedic has become a style phenomenon.
As much as we want to feel disgust on such trend, admit it that this somewhat weird occurrence in sneaker scene is slowly looking attractive to some of us. No doubt that this trend will not just stop right here especially that collecting sneakers has become mainstream, it's just the matter whether OG's will bite on it or should we just call it another typical fashion brainwash.
