This Is the Sneaker Trend Every Early Adopter Is Wearing



Over the last several years, we’ve seen sneaker trends soar in popularity ranging from “dad” styles and utilitarian gorpcore shoes to retro designs reminiscent of the ‘80s and clean, minimal white variations. The latest trend to land in the closets of the fashion set, though, are bold, colorful sneakers that add a punch of color to their wardrobes.

Adidas, in particular, has some of the most in-demand designs. Among them are collaborations with Gucci and Wales Bonner that are selling out in record time, as well as unique colorways of its Samba and Gazelle sneakers that are defining what cool fashion looks like right now. Colorful designs are also picking up steam with other brands, including New Balance and Nike, with styles including the 550s and Dunks continuing to land on the sell-out list.

Whether you’re styling them with other vibrant colors or adding them to a neutral look to add some dimension, there’s a place for them in your outfits for 2023. Ahead, shop the colorful sneaker trend with an edit of the best styles on the market.
