Trend alert – running shoes

Started a few seasons ago, the mixing of sport elements into everyday outfits trend has evolved into full blown madness (the good kind that is).

The first step was marked by adapted/enhanced sport items insidiously finding their way into our wardrobes and everyday outfits. That’s how clothes traditionally worn to the gym or reserved for outdoors activities like caps, hoodies, sweatshirts, sport pants started to be combined with girly dresses, voluminous skirts, tailored pants, statement jewelry and high heels. Granted most of these were somehow modified to appeal to a more fashion oriented crowd but sport chic was suddenly not just accepted but cool and original.

 
The platform sneaker is the perfect example to illustrate my case. Heavily sport inspired but with the heel/height element added in the mix it was a huge hit. And while many girls are still wearing the Isabel Marant model or the many variation inspired by it, even more of them have moved on to the running shoe which is the next step in the evolution of this trend. Now it’s the perfect time to wear your Nike shoes instead of high heels around town – they are not reserved for jogging or gym anymore. You can look at it as a purification of a trend that’s getting more and more literal every passing season. It might even have something to do with the general direction towards casualness the entire society stirs towards.

I actually collected quite a few inspirational outfits featuring cool running shoes as the main attraction and most of them were photographed outside this year’s Fashion Week crown around the globe: New York, London, Milan and Paris.
