The days of stylish, clean, streamlined sneakers (i.e. the almighty Adidas’ Stan Smiths) are officially over. Make way as we warmly welcome the trend of “ugly” dad sneakers. Sporty rather than chic, they are known for their chunky and exaggerated soles. Not exactly hideous, but not particularly elegant either.
Still, their eye-popping clunky designs have caught the fashion world by storm. Just look at style stars such as Eva Chen, Susie Lau and Chriselle Lim, who have been flaunting them on their social media accounts. And now it’s your turn. We give you our best picks, from splurge-worthy to absolute steals, that are bound to be #shoeporn worthy for your Instagram handles.
