I Saw Aubrey Plaza Wearing This Obscure Sneaker Trend, and Now I Want It

If you're the kind of person who fawns over any celebrity who is "just like us," then we need to talk about Aubrey Plaza. I binged The White Lotus in just about a week and am now obsessed with every actor that graced the screen, Plaza being one of my favorites.

It turns out she's just as effortlessly cool in real life, and her style reflects that. She wore $30 sneakers to commute in New York City—she's just like us. 

After seeing her waltz around in these sneakers, I couldn't help but notice that they were giving major slip-on vibes. I have a prediction that the next Y2K trend that Gen Z will be all over is slip-on sneakers. I plan on ordering a pair for myself that will be anywhere between Plaza's $30 pair and a fresh Golden Goose number, so below, find 20 styles I'm considering.

Plaza proves that style has no required entry price point.

While we're on the topic of revamped dad sneakers.

The kind of sneakers that will make people ask, "Where did you get those?"

I'm all about this color scheme.
