Combining performance and streetwear, comfortable and stylish sock sneakers have been the latest most mentioned sneaker trend and crowned with a new name of “snockers”. Sock sneakers are the hybrid of sock upper and sneaker sole. They are making the biggest hype at this moment, both on the runway and streets. Many classic sneaker brands like Adidas, Nike to fashion labels like Balenciaga or Fendi presented their new sock sneakers this season.
Thanks to the advanced technology of producing high density knit fabric, sock sneakers are stretchy, breathable and cozy. The traditional lace and tongue sneakers are replaced by the lean silhouette of sock upper. But they maintain the function of sports footwear with the traditional sneaker rubber sole. The fashion crowds instantly fall in love with the modern chic sock-sneakers and wear them with almost any outfits from their closet. The athletics are also sporting them on and off the basketball courts as one of their favorites.
The futurist appearance of snockers has been turning up again and again on the streets of fashion capitals. As a known fact, fashion is fading out the formal dressing code and replacing it with chic casual wear. Pool slides, flatforms or ugly shoes are all trending heavily while sock sneakers are standing out as both fashionable and functional, the perfect alternative for athleisure attire.
