The acceptance of sneakers into the everyday fashion vocabulary has continued to build momentum over the last few years.

Looking back, we recognise that they first started sneak”ing” in our imagination around 2014, with the “athleisure” trend. Yet today, sneakers are stronger than ever, representing an essencial part of our footwear choices.

They are no longer the secondary character of a lifestyle trend. They are the protagonists, responsible for propelling their own story forward.

Today’s post is about the stories being told in 2019. And despite being fully aware that outlining specific sneaker trends is never an exact science but more of an insightful interpretation of the present that hopes to predict the immediate future. Personally, I just enjoy the challenge.

 

#1 T&T: TRACK AND TRAIL

Recently, Adidas did some consumer research in the U.S.A. and Europe that stated that sneakerheads are increasingly interested in the outdoors, especially if they live in bigger cities. Even those who do not hike still love the active lifestyle associated with it. So expect 2019 to bring you sneakers that indicate functionality through rubber soles with strong grips and reinforced uppers designed to support the foot.

#2 TECH INSPIRED

This trend is not about inserting technology into the sneaker from a functional perspective, though that is definitely in the works. A tech inspired sneaker is a sneaker that blurs the lines between traditional structural design and computational graphics and imagery, adding visually distinctive elements.

#3 CANVAS WITH STATEMENT SOLES

The classic canvas sneakers are never fully out of fashion, are they? Somehow, the
classics always find a way to stay relevant. This time around, they are keeping themselves in the game with platform soles and integral toe caps in both high and low styles.

#4 EXAGGERATED PROPORTIONS

The sneaker industry will raise the bet made on the chunky sneaker by over-designing sneakers that will use amplified proportions to make even bigger statements.

Inflated and bold soles will be combined with different textures, materials and colors for impactful sneaker launches.

#5 A WORLD OF COLOR

The photos we take of ourselves to post are, more than ever, our calling card to the world.

In this context, bright and vibrant colours have gained importance: color reinforces
individuality and brings wonder and joy almost immediately due to its positive
psychological impact. In 2019, you will see bold combinations of colours and materials that will surprise you and keep things interesting in the most visual era of all time.

#6 TRANSPARENCY AND SEE-THROUGH

A new wave of materials is finally hitting the mainstream in 2019, from transparent PU uppers that can be worn with or without socks (we support the use of socks, in case you are wondering!) to translucent soles for a fresh finishing touch. Coupled with some of the trends identified before, transparent and see-through materials promise to impress in the short term.

Fits great ,the price is right. What else do you have to know!,,
Have had this purse for about a month now, still works good. Love the design, already showing signs of use though, but it still looks very presentable.
Bought this for my coworker and he absolutely love it. I am actually considering making it an official gift item for men I know.
It is a pretty nice looking, well made made wallet, Haven't had the opportunity to check out the RFID blocking ability yet.
Great value
Like everything about it. But unless you have larger beltloops you will be required to loop it through the buckle when?you put it on but it is easy to?do?and holds well! The locking mechanism in the buckle feels very sturdy and holds well, also very easy to release. The material has a likeness to seatbelt material but thicker. Awesome belt for the price.
Cheap
excellent
Great pair of shades. They stay put no matter what I'm doing.
Very cute bag and well made for the price.
Great hat.. Looks exactly or even better than the picture, really fast delivery
Great product. Top of the foot has lighter fabric to allow breathing. The sock is sturdy and is my go to sock for working out
Levis does not have some odd number sizes lol, so I bough these at half the cost $20 and they fit and feel great
sold!
ill go back into Levis when I get to even number size lol
Cheap. Thin. These wont last.
My girlfriend wears it all the time. Its been a month at least and It still looks as good as it did when it came out of the box
My husband broke his sunglasses so ordered these as a replacement. The only complaint he has is that they almost seem like they are prescription? He says that after about an hour he gets a headache.
Good thing they were so cheap, shrunk way too much. These are definitely not to be compared to say a mens large tall T.....my large stay tucked was like a med stay untucked.
delivery was on time .IN LOVE with the bag
Beautiful purse, love it!
Its pretty cute bag. Not the best material but you get what you paid for honestly. I just like what it looks like and I could care less about the material
Good product
This bag was exactly what was expected. Very nice.
they're the perfect size for every day wear
Excellent
These are pretty great socks.
Good sun shirt!
I LUVED IT UNTIL ONE OF MY ZIPPERS JUST GAVE OUT~AND I DO NOT ABUSE MY PURSES, AND I ONLY USED IT FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS.

Nice quality
I like this brand. Not the Cadillac. They do the job and last well
