I Absolutely Don’t Need Any More Sneakers, But I Can’t Say No To These

From coast to coast mother nature has reared its ugly head. Massive snowstorms and heavy rainfall included, the beginning of the month proved to be prime time for owning a pair of boots. Now that the torrential rain has eased up some in Los Angeles, and New York is back to regularly scheduled programming type of winter weather, I'm declaring it a moment for sneakers. 

Thankfully, the options to choose from are seemingly endless. From buzzy brand-name collaborations to a Drake-endorsed designer, the sneaker market is alive and robust. Good for sneakerheads, but bad for my wallet. While several trends are circulating at the moment, the general consensus is that we're in an anti-white sneaker phase. The colorways are more daring, vibrant, and more over the top than ever before. Super sporty sneakers are also a big theme here, which feels like a perfect pairing with the parachute pant trend also currently blowing up.

It's not that I need sneakers, but they're just too cute to pass up. To see exactly what I mean, keep clicking below.

Fashion Market Editor

Indya Brown is a fashion editor, stylist, and writer living in Los Angeles. While going to school at Columbia University in New York City, she got her feet wet in the fashion industry interning at Elle magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and New York magazine's The Cut. After graduating in 2016, she joined The Cut as a fashion assistant, eventually working her way up to fashion editor. There, she worked on a multitude of projects, including styling inbook feature stories for New York magazine's print issue, writing and pitching market stories for The Cut, and serving as fashion lead for The Cut's branded content. While New York has been her home for over 10 years, she moved to Los Angeles in the midst of the pandemic in 2020 for a new chapter. Now she is a fashion market editor for Who What Wear, focusing on emerging designers, rising trends on and off the internet, interior design, and BIPOC creatives and brands. Aside from her duties as a fashion market editor, Brown is also a freelance stylist and writer, working on national print and video commercial campaigns for Sephora, The Independent, and Cadillac. Her bylines also include Harper's Bazaar, Vox, and The New York Times. But once the computer goes down and the emails turn off, she's likely eating her way through Koreatown, hunting down vintage furniture, scoping out new outrageous nail designs to try, or taking a hot cycling class.
