Fashion sneakers (read: generally non-functional) are in a league of their own with trends that ebb and flow with the changing of the seasons. Sure, there are some fashion girl–approved classics that will never die like clean white trainers and lace-up high tops, but the sneaker experience is just as much a trend turnover as anything else in the community. And spring 2020 is bringing in a whole new class of playful sneaker styles.
Before you get too excited, the “ugly” sneaker trend is still holding strong, but there are more variations on the silhouette than ever before. It seems that last year’s colorful array of Adidas Falcons sparked a color-blocking frenzy that we’re sure to experience tenfold this spring. And where your dad’s Kirkland brand trainers were once the most re-created style in town, it’s your dad’s college-era tennis Reeboks that are now making a full comeback.
Ahead, shop the spring sneaker trends that are sure to be flooding the street style scene this upcoming fashion week.
