The 5 Affordable Sneaker Trends For SS23
Our standout picks for the season ahead
What brings more joy than a pair of box-fresh new sneakers? We can think of little else.
01 RETRO SNEAKERS
On the fashion radar for a while now, retro-style sneakers show no signs of dropping off the cool list. And why would they? Super comfortable, thanks to the penchant for suede and soft leather fabrics, they’re also having a moment with the model set. Think Vans, Nike or designer kicks from Jimmy Choo to freshen up your weekend look. Go for interesting hues from ‘70s-inspired browns and neutrals at Browns to soft pastel shades at Steve Madden, all at McArthurGlen Vancouver.
02 FUTURISTIC TRAINERS
From street style to runway looks and social, the Futuristic trend appears to be coming from a galaxy not so far away. Space-age silver, architectural aesthetics, control-panel neon and plenty of mesh and neoprene; sneakers are the most pragmatic way to channel that Back To The Future vibe while keeping comfort centre stage. Sport a pair of platform Nikes with a summer suit for a wearable yet laid back look. Or why not opt for the freshness of a white-on-white pair worn with metallics and neutral tones?
03 HI-TOP SNEAKERS
If you’re in the market for a timeless, goes-with-everything purchase then you can’t go wrong with High Tops. The Converse from Browns are the cult classics that work with everything from jeans and cargo pants to this summer’s shorts and minis. Classic black or white have a modern aesthetic or treat yourself to a pair in a bold hue up to 70% off at McArthurGlen Vancouver.
04 TRAIL & HIKING
Planning on putting your sneakers through their paces with some outdoor pursuits this season? Or simply in-the-know that hiking sneakers are currently ultra cool? Here’s how to make the trend your own:
Look out for styles you can dress up or down such as Columbia Sportswear or The North Face. Comfort and durability are key, especially if you’re hitting the trails but these also look fresh paired with a leather jacket and jeans for easy everyday wear.
05 TREND SNEAKERS
These are the wear-everywhere shoes your wardrobe needs. Clean, white-out sneakers that will elevate your everyday look from the iconic Lacoste to the simple silhouette of Reebok and of course, those viral Adidas. Comfortable, lightweight and dependably stylish, no matter your preferred look. Use them to add a casual vibe to a work-appropriate blazer or to update a floral sundress. These are the sneakers you didn’t know you couldn’t live without.
