In case you missed the memo, metallic is back. From shirts to bags to skirts to today's focus, gleaming sneakers, shiny is officially the new black, and we're certainly not complaining. While lustrous pieces are great to wear during holiday party season (or during a night out on the town), don't limit your metallic outfits to just those occasions. Instead, wear them in your normal day-to-day—yes, we're serious.
Now, if you're too afraid to go all-out in head-to-toe sparkle (or just prefer to save that look for New Year's Eve), sprinkle in hints of this polarizing '80s micro-trend via your accessories. A cute coated belt bag is a great way to amp up an LBD, or ground a look with a pair of metallic sneakers guaranteed to make a simple 'fit blindingly cool.
That's why we searched far and wide to find 20 pairs of glistening sneakers bound to make you feel next-level. Read on to see and shop the metallic trainers we don't mind seeing stars for.
