DAD SHOES – Lets be real, the dad shoes are clunky and ugly, but I feel compelled to write a blog about them, after recently purchasing my first pair.
I remember walking in soho months ago with a friend, and seeing the Archlights in the Louis Vuitton window, and saying to my friend “who would spend that amount of money on ugly sneakers, that are just a fad.” Louis Vuitton was showing them on their Spring/Summer 2018 runway, and who can forget Balenciaga’s colorful take on the dad shoes also on the runaway.
Fast forward a few months, and this girl was coveting those archlight sneakers. Still the somewhat fiscally responsible woman (my mom would argue that) I could not justify spending over a 1000 dollars on a sneaker trend, I am a fashion victim!! I am an influencer, who is influenced by other influencers, and also a reader of editorials full of women in formal dresses with chunky sneakers. It is an edgy casual look that I have come to adore. PS a big plus they are sooooo comfortable
If you’re in the market for a pair, or you’re thinking about trying the trend, check out my favorite pairs of dad sneakers below!
