1. A Converse Resurrection
These age-old sneakers have come in and out of fashion more often than Lady Gaga’s hairstyle’s changed. The classic black and white high top Converse All-Stars are back with a vengeance in 2019.
Malia Obama is a big fan casually wearing them as a freshman at Harvard.
2. Dad Sneakers
While the controversial celebrity kicks are as divisive as crocs, the “ugly” dad sneaker trend isn’t going anywhere in 2019. Even Kanye West is trying out a few dad sneaker designs for his fashion line this year.
Not sure about the trend? You might not be as slick as Gigi Hadid. But if Ed Sheeran can pull it off, then so can you!
3. Hiker Elements
You might not believe it, but many fashion experts forecast the biggest sneaker trend for the next few years will be hiking shoes. In 2019, the incorporation of hiking elements features sturdy and functional designs.
For once, famous wears are actually based on comfort over style. Just ask Bella Hadid or Zoë Kravitz if you’re not sure about this trend of celebrity shoes.
4. Tie Dye Trend
From clothing to accessories to footwear, the tie-dye trend is all over 2019. Quirky artists, such as Miley Cyrus are loving the gloriously colorful trend.
The brightly hued celebrity kicks are the perfect footwear to make your breezy summer style pop.
5. Minimalist Classics
While all these celebrity kicks seem wild, there is also a classic minimalist style trending in 2019. Simple white sneakers with uncomplicated design motifs are just as fashionable as the dad sneaker.
Celebs like Jennifer Lopez and Taylor Swift are loving the latest Gucci shoes and sneakers which boast a minimalist feel.
6. Chunky Soles
Like the dad sneaker trend, stars sneakers have incorporated the chunky sole onto other styles too. While the Spice Girls failed to master it, these exaggerated soles bring the 90s back with a much sleeker finish.
7. Unusual Textures
If tie-dye dad trainers with hikers elements didn’t blow your mind already, these next celebrity kicks will. From retro denim Air Jordans to High Top Hessian Converse, textured sneakers will be everywhere this summer.
