Chunky, spongy soles are everywhere. It started when they were paraded on the pavements of Fashion Weeks around the world and their oversized 90s athleisure styling has spread from the catwalks to every street style star worth their salt.
However, while the footwear affectionately deemed the Dad trainer is without a shadow of doubt the most comfortable thing one could probably ever wear on their feet, we’re feeling a little conflicted. See, we love a trend, don’t get us wrong, but are those bubbled soles and their 90s throwback styling just a little too out there for our liking?
We’re well on-board with the trainer trend – anything that allows us to don leisure wear everywhere but the gym is just fine with us – but we’re shunning the ugly trainer trend for something a little more feminine. Enter the Michael Kors Allie and Scout trainers. They’re chunky and retro, just the right side of old skool, but those soft metallic shades and floral prints are a million miles away from what you might expect to see on your old man.
So, while the world goes wild for brasher styles, we’ll be here dipping a toe in the trend in new season Michael Kors. What about you?
