When it comes to buying new sneakers, I lean towards versatility. That means it will typically be in monochrome colors like classic white or all grey or all black. For the longest time, you used to read articles about how sneakers were meant for active and casual wear. 2020 is spelling out something quite different. For the last few seasons, all I’ve been seeing sneakers paired with are dresses, but short and long, casual and dressed up. At this point, I’m convinced you can pair sneakers with just about any type of dress and no one would say a thing.
If that’s the case, then that means we’re good on these forever and there are no rules. In the last week, Hypebeast and Hypebae have shared two new styles that have caught my eye from both Converse and adidas respectively. Above is the adidas Originals’ Falcon Sneaker in a blush pink with beautiful gold accents. The shoe itself is made with both mesh and suede paneling. Starting today, they are available [here.]
We’ve seen it in swimsuit trends recently; this throwback to more retro styles so it’s no surprise that this has made its way to sneakers. I’m loving the two toned colors on Converse’s Chuck 70 Renew Hi and Ox. The Hi will be sold for $95 USD and the Ox at $90 USD. Which pair are you leaning more towards?
