On Our Radar: The Sneaker Set

Accessories, Most Wanted, What's Trending  /   /  By Nina Louie

If there was one thing we noticed at New York Fashion Week, it was all the girls in sneakers. By far, this was the most pervasive trend among the street style set. We saw every type of trainer (except wedges!), from classic Keds to vintage-style New Balance to techy Nikes to colorful Converse to Vans-style slip-ons in snakeskin and leopard and flannel. All were paired with skirts, dresses, and otherwise luxe, ladylike styles that would have called for cute little flats or even fierce heels in seasons past. It’s pretty impressive—the return of the comfort shoe. What do you think? Are sneakers sweet relief or would all these outfits look better with Louboutins?

    Love the green plaid dress outfit with the relax look of sneakers.

    I love that the look of mixing sneakers with otherwise dressy pieces! I’m totally for comfort infused fashion.

    I lived in NYC in the early 1990’s and everyone wore sneakers for the walk to work and changed into dress shoes at the office. It’s nice to see that comfort is coming first now! I think most all of these outfits look great.
