With the plethora of sneaker trends currently on the market, it's safe to say we can use all the help we can get to narrow down the options. Which is why we turned to the experts at Edited, a fashion and retail technology company that's always the first to know about market trends. We asked if there's a sneaker trend that recently bit the dust, and Edited's answer came as a surprise, as the style the team named was quite a new trend: satin sneakers.

Edited's senior retail analyst Katie Smith pulled data on the trend and told us that "44% of satin sneakers are currently discounted by an average of 40% off. And 75% of styles that were reduced in the last three months have not yet sold out, despite hefty reductions! That's because our relationship to sneakers has shifted. We want our footwear to match our fast-paced, action-packed lives. Satin sneakers, though lightweight, won't wear well through wet weather in the colder months, let alone a trip on the city subway!"

Smith makes a very good point about the impracticality of the satin sneakers that were everywhere this summer, but what about the trends that everyone is buying? She pulled the data on that too.
