I'm Not a Sneakerhead, But These Chanel Sneakers Just Convinced Me Otherwise

When you think of Chanel, you most likely think of the brand's leather handbag collection. If you dig a little deeper into its shoe collection, ballet flats or slingbacks most likely come to mind. While these are all A+ options that I daydream about often, it's the iconic designer's sneaker collection that tends to grab my attention, I wear sneakers more than any other type of shoes, so it should seem like a solid purchase, but I'm a little hesitant.

My current most expensive pair of sneakers is a classic pair of white Nike Air Force 1s, so you can see why I'm a little reluctant on adding an over-$500 pair to my cart. But when I see a pair of Chanel sneakers, I almost always end up convincing myself to make the splurge. Can you blame me? The way they mix the iconic double-C logo with modern streetwear design is any fashion girl's dream.

If you're looking to give yourself a little luxury love and purchase or simply just want to see some designer eye candy, look no further than the sneakers below.

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
