Morag Grealy gives us the heads up on sneaker fash­ion

Sneak­ers are mak­ing their way into the fash­ion-savvy world


It’s not of­ten the fash­ion and com­fort worlds in­ter­sect — “pain is beauty” and all that, right?

How­ever, in case you hadn’t no­ticed the re­cent fash­ion sneaker epi­demic has kind of turned this no­tion on its head.

And with the lat­est sea­sons run­way shows (and street style crews alike) it’s been taken to a whole new un­ex­pected level.

Right now, it’s move aside round-toe sneaker trend, in­com­ing are le­git ex­er­cise shoes!

That’s right, the shoes you wear to jog in are now the it shoes to pair with just about any fash­ion­able out­fit.

Se­ri­ously, just ask Louis Vuit­ton, Vete­ments and Ce­line.

You know when you used to snig­ger at cor­po­rate work­ers who changed into run­ning shoes with their work out­fit?

Well, that’s a look that’s now not only ac­cepted in fash­ion cir­cles but the height of pro­gres­sive fash­ion!

That sneaker and jeans look that Jerry Se­in­feld will never live down? Also to­tally in right now.

All of a sud­den your dorky Nike’s that have long been rel­e­gated to the back of the wardrobe are now on trend?

Yup, pair them with a ball­gown and you’re good to go!

The best bit? Cur­rent fash­ion is prac­ti­cally beg­ging us to move more!

And we may as well take ad­van­tage of this, as with fickle fash­ion in­dus­try, who knows how long this will stick around.

Tie up your laces and walk to your next cof­fee date, to and from work and ba­si­cally get around by foot with­out com­pro­mis­ing on your style — now couldn’t be a more ideal time to get fash­ion­ably fit.
