Fashion’s current obsession with chunky, worn-in sneakers comes after many seasons of crisp white, clean-cut versions like the ever-popular Stan Smiths or tidy white Converse. We’re chalking this rising trend to Louis Vuitton – at the house’s spring/summer 2018 show models power-walked down the runway in chunky athletic runners that were anything but subtle. It seems style stars are ready to mix things up a bit too, with Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and Kim Kardashian all rocking the trend recently. We never thought we’d say this but it might be time to raid your grandpa’s closet (at least for inspiration).
