“UGLY” Sneakers
Are Having a Moment

Bulky with a certain mom-like aesthetic—seemingly unflattering footwear is right on trend. Ever since former Céline designer Phoebe Philo sent models strutting down the catwalk in stylish Birkenstock-like slides, an industry-wide shift was felt and comfort became key. Fast-forward five years later, orthopedic-style soles and chunky silhouettes are all the rage. From Balenciaga’s now iconic ‘Triple S’ sneaker to Reebok x Vetements’ ‘InstaPump Fury’ collaboration, fashionistas can’t seem to get enough of this trend. Truth be told—neither can we. Words by Clara Virieux

GO RETRO

Create contrast between your outfit and your footwear with a chic throwback-inspired ensemble and an architecturally intriguing sneaker. While the wide-leg fit of the trousers elongates your silhouette, the chunky platform is a comfortable alternative to heels. Top it all off with a colorful statement handbag to add a touch of character.

ANYA HINDMARCH

TRUE BLUE

When two of the season’s biggest trends collide, the result is eclectic. A sporty sneaker with an elevated platform is the perfect addition to a modern full-denim look. The STYLEBOP.com way to wear it? A cropped pair of jeans puts emphasis on your trendy footwear, while a cropped denim jacket accentuates your waist. Complete your look with a mini It-bag and you’re good to go.

CREAM PUFF

A cream-colored black-accented sneaker with an architectural platform and understated detailing makes it perfect to pair with a chunky off-the-shoulder style. Add complexity and dimension by styling it with a button-down blouse buttoned all the way up, and a slick but vibrantly-colored midi skirt to show off a hint of skin. Subtle, yet seductive.

TOO UTILITARIAN

A statement shoe is only as good as the outfit it balances out. Here, shades of khaki and camouflage ensure your legs are the center of attention, courtesy of a deconstructed, asymmetrical skirt paired with a platform sneaker. As the muted hues elongate your silhouette, add dimension through your handbag with a bold pop of color. We would recommend a metallic number for a touch of soft-chic.

PURR-FECT COMBO

Love the lived-in, effortless model-off-duty, rock-star-lifestyle-might-not-make-it look? Pull off artfully eclectic in an oversize animal-print overcoat, casual layered separates, ripped sheer tights, ankle sport socks, and structural, sizable sneakers. This combo is casual, cool, and comfortable.

 

 


RED VALENTINO


VETEMENTS

FADE TO BLACK

Colorful sneakers against an all-black backdrop? Quite an interesting sartorial juxtaposition. Vibrant, yet practical enough for everyday wear, allow them to be the focal point of a monochrome, relaxed fit ensemble. Bonus points for mixing and matching textures to create the illusion of depth. Try pairing patent leather with neoprene, velvet with faux fur, cashmere wool with silk organza, etc.

POWER COUPLE

FYI, chunky sneakers can go hand-in-hand with luxurious tailoring. Case in point: This all-black sneaker easily elevates a sharp, structured blazer in the form of a cherry red pop of color. Not only does it add character and dimension, the contrasting hues and textures will highlight the intricacies of your sartorial tastes.

THINK PINK

Statement layering and ugly sneakers go together, too! This year, your wildest fashion fantasies are breaking down the limits that were once imposed to allow you to unequivocally experiment with your creative vision. Voluminous dresses worn over button-down blouses, flowy trousers, and a go-to topper—all in monochromatic pink—is the cool-girl way to rock the look.

METALLIC MOMENT

A sporty-couture look if we’ve ever seen one, try pairing eyecatching sneakers with figure-flattering statement pieces for a paparazzi-baiting look with flair. The ultimate cool-girl styling touches? Glitzy jewelry, an architectural handbag, and classic white athletic socks pulled up to the calf. Game, set, sartorial match.
