Heels will always have their time and place in any fashion lover’s wardrobe, but you can’t ignore the level of impact sneakers have had on the industry, and, of course, our closets. Blame it on athleisure and streetwear, two aesthetics currently dominating the sartorial realm, or the growing importance of comfort in what we wear—a trend we surely can’t complain about—but it’s nearly impossible to look through an It girl’s closet and not find a few pairs of sneakers.
Like every other area of fashion, sneakers come with their own sets of trends each season. You’ve already seen dad sneakers take over as the one of the biggest (and most unexpected) shoe trends, but for this fall, there are some new styles to keep on your radar.
From bright, bold, statement-making ‘80s-inspired styles to sleek and elevated platforms (sorry, we had to!), scroll down to see which sneaker trends are about to be everywhere this season. Then shop each trend to make it your own.
This fall, we're seeing a new type of statement sneaker in bright, bold, and big '80s-inspired styles. Opt for a pair that adds pops of color to your ensembles, or go for a space-age style for a Back to the Future vibe.

Perhaps you already noticed, but more companies are taking a sustainable approach to their products, and it's especially true of the sneaker industry. Opt for a consciously and sustainably made pair to reduce your carbon footprint.
