Mary-Kate Olsen Wore a Throwback Sneaker Trend on the Red Carpet

Allyson Payer

As the co-founder and designer of The Row (along with sister Ashley), Mary-Kate Olsen is most often seen wearing the brand's luxurious shoes, as anyone in her position gladly would. But last night, while attending an auction and party at Sotheby's in New York with husband Olivier Sarkozy, Olsen opted to wear a comfortable pair of It sneakers by Alexander McQueen. And instead of a typical lace-up or slip-on style, she went with a throwback sneaker trend that has since returned since our elementary school days: velcro. Olsen paired the platform kicks with a long black lace-trimmed dress for a chill, effortless red carpet look, in keeping with her signature aesthetic, and serving as proof that you can wear sneakers anywhere these days. 

Read on to see Olsen's look and shop her velcro sneakers.
