This Weird Footwear Trend is Triggering The Yeezy Kids

The new ugly shoes coming for your sneaker rotation.

Ever since the Balenciaga Triple-S took over the hierarchy of the sneaker food chain three years ago, everyone suddenly had to up their footwear game. But in 2020, are chunky sneakers still at the top? Are people suddenly into more unexpected, comfy pieces now ever since the pandemic?

You might have already seen them while scrolling through your feed, but these are the most unusual footwear trends we’ve spotted this quarantine

  1. CROCS

Okay, I see some brows being raised. Say what you want, but crocs are now a go-to pair, especially for those just staying at home. Who knows? Maybe one day, our favorite Kardashian would be spotted wearing them. You heard it here first.

2. MAISON MARGIELA x REEBOK

Maison Margiela’s Tabi silhouette may be one of the most bizarre in footwear history due to its split-toe, but they take it to another level when they debuted their recent collaboration with Reebok and fused it with their instapump shoe. Cloven-hoof, but make it chunky.

3. NIKE ACG

Who said dad core was over? Reminiscent of the sock and sandal trend popularized in the early 90s, Nike’s ACG sandal brings back a lot of good memories.

4. J.W. ANDERSON

Slip on these luxe clogs like Rihanna in her recent Vogue cover if you feel like splurging. J.W. Anderson can do no wrong. Trust.

5. BIRKENSTOCKS

Probably the effortless of them all, Birkenstock will always be synonymous to comfort. Brb, adding those clogs in all color ways to cart.
