The Top 7 Sneaker Trends Of 2021

Pumps were replaced by sneakers circa 2013, and we haven’t looked back since. Sneakers have become part of our daily lives to such an extent that sneakers have become a fine addition to a dress. 

Sneakers are never boring either. Every season has its sneaker trends that most people follow. Whether it be a brand of sneaker or a sneaker style, there is always something popular at the time that may not be popular in a couple of months. 

We’re taking a look at the sneaker trends that are going to take the world by storm this year. 

Platform Sneakers 

Platform sneakers are perfect for the shorter girl looking to get a lift without having to be uncomfortable. These shoes provide all the benefits of a high heel shoe without the discomfort of the heel. 

If you’re a shorter girl who doesn’t enjoy wearing heels, but would like a slight boost, perhaps the platform sneaker is a good option for you. You can wear your platform sneaker in a neutral color or make it a statement sneaker to make your outfit pop. 

Athletic Sneakers 

The classic day-to-day trainer is becoming fashionable to wear outside of the gym or running trail. This is excellent news for anybody that lives in their trainers because of exercising. You can simply throw on a pair of jeans with your trainers and be dressed for the day. 

This is a trend only for those who don’t categorize clothes. If you believe that workout trainers belong only in the gym, it’s probably best to stick with a different sneaker trend as you won’t feel comfortable going out with your trainers. 

Color Block Sneakers 

The sneaker for the daring. A color block sneaker, also known as a statement sneaker, is the perfect addition to a monotone outfit. You can wear monotones head to ankles and then finish the look off with a color block sneaker. 

The benefit of the color block sneaker is that they draw so much attention themselves that the rest of your outfit doesn’t have to be anything special. You don’t even need to wear much jewelry to set a statement sneaker off. 

Classic Canvas Sneakers

A classic canvas sneaker, like a classic french manicure, never goes out of style. This style of sneaker can be worn in a myriad of different colors and still be fashionable. However, whites and greys are always an excellent canvas sneaker color. 

The best part about this trend is that you probably already have the sneaker in your closet. Most of us have, at one time or another, bought a pair of classic canvas sneakers. Now is the time to dig them out and give them a go in the world again. 

Retro Sneakers 

Mom jeans have become fashionable again, as have dad hats, and now sneakers are getting their chance. Fashion bloggers worldwide have started to wear the classic dad-at-the-barbecue shoe, and the trend is taking off! 

This trend can be worn with mom jeans to keep up with the retro vibe. The best thing about this trend is that the sneaker is so comfortable, which means you will be comfy and fashionable at the same time. 

High-Top Sneakers

Many of us experienced the high-top fad as children, and now it’s back and better than ever! High-tops are back in fashion and are the perfect addition to your classic jeans and vest outfit. You can also wear this trend with jeans and a hoodie. 

This trend is a major throwback, but we are excited to see it! We can finally grab our high-tops out of storage and rock them again. That is if you didn’t leave them behind at the skate park one day. 

Corduroy Sneakers

Corduroy has been a trend that has come and gone many times during our lives, and now it’s back. Only this time, the trend is on sneakers! We never thought we’d see this fabric make its comeback on a shoe, but we love it. 

You could wear this trend with a more toned-down outfit. Having texture on your shoe means that you can’t have too much texture on your outfit, or your outfit will end up looking too chaotic. Wear this trend with classic jeans and a t-shirt or a monotone outfit.
