At the feet of stars and influencers, we only see them: the famous Dad Shoes. Muses of the normcore trend, leather and rubber trainers with XXL soles are clearly the it-shoes of the season.
We tell you everything you need to know about Dad Shoes and some look ideas to wear them and be trendy.
Where do Dad Shoes come from?
The Dad Shoes take us back to our teenage days and 90s fashion, when we confidently pestered our dads to take off those “ugly” shoes in favor of something less ugly. We were dumbfounded in front of this pair of sneakers (because we said “tennis” at the time) with a big sole, or even downright scratch in the worst case. Fashion is decidedly facetious since these maxi-soled tennis shoes are now fashion must-haves.
The Dad Shoes are sneakers with very large soles, super comfortable, and deliciously vintage.
The Dad Shoe trend appeared in 2017at the same time as the current Normcore (contraction of “normal” and “hardcore”). At that time, the fashion sphere wanted simple and effective fashion, based on 501s and white T-shirts, a bit like Steve Jobs. The idea is toopt for a minimalist and efficient aestheticin opposition to the system.
Brief, the old ugly sneaker is now a must, and we explain how to wear it well just below.
