The Shoe Taking SS18 by Storm

When the new season hits the shops there is invariably always 1 item that stands head and shoulders above others in terms of the ‘must have’ for the season. That item used to come from catwalk trends but now streetstyle and influencers in general are leading the way and can really make something a must. It started last season and has slowly grown into a giant trend for SS18: the ugly dad trainer.

You might think as girls who dress on the more girly side of the spectrum this isn’t a trend that we’d be tapping into but you’d be wrong! Although we are both fans of heels and more ladylike footwear we also really love the juxtaposition of something pretty {like a floral midi dress like this one} or overly feminine {like a full candy pink suit} and a trainer.

The Balenciaga & Dior chunky trainers have paved the way but this Summer you’ll be seeing chunky trainers in all forms, including the sportswear superbrands, making a huge come back. If you are like us and like to dress in a feminine way, an ugly trainer similar to what your dad used to wear {in the 70’s, 80’s or 90’s} might take some getting used to but trust us once you entertain them you won’t be turning back. There’s a laid back look a trainer will add to anything girly and give it a nonchalant, cool AF vibe. Perfect with midi skirt and slogan tee, instantly relaxes a stuffy suit and tones down a mini dress. If you are fully jumping on the trend then a built up sole style is the one and we’ve linked some cheaper options than the £600 Balenciaga bad boys below. If you are dipping your toe in {see what did there} then a chunky Nike might be the best stepping stone or a pastel shade retro Adidas style.

Wanna hear the best bit about this trend? They may push your out of your comfort zone but boy will they be comfy.
