Replacing sleek sneakers, chunky sneakers have been in trend for a while and there is no sign of slowing down. Many celebrities, supermodels and style stars have sported this unconventional shoe trend, the chunkier the better. Inspired by ‘90s dad sneakers, the retro silhouette has made its way everywhere from runway to the street. These “ugly” sneakers are not only comfortable but also deliver an easy-going laidback attitude. With athleisure vibe going strong, the chunky dad sneakers have become the best sellers of many fashion brands.
On the runway of spring 2019, Dsquared2 introduced their own version of chunky sneakers. To be accurate, they are the hybrid of sneakers and wedges. The mini stiletto connected double structure took the chunky sneaker trend to a whole new level. The eye-catching details on the wedge further defined the shoes with haute couture touch.
The fancy footwear may not be suitable for everyone. But for Cardi B, who often pushes the boundaries on bold fashion choices, they fit like glove. The rapper took the runway shoes to the real life and post a photo on Instagram. The statement shoes were style with quilted top and skirt in orange. The high top of the sneakers is very season appropriate and the optical illusion wedges completed the quirky style of Cardi B with a perfect finish.
