Athleisure trend has been popular since 2010s and it has no signs of slowing down. From tracksuits to mesh sandals, sports inspired ensembles and accessories stormed the runway and streets with countless variations. Just as you wonder what’s next for athleisure, Prada took the trend to the next level with its fall 2018 men collection by designing sporty pieces in a very elegant way.
Prada shoes fall 2018 on the runway are perfect hybrid of sportswear and classic basics. Prada took the sleek simple silhouette of Chelsea ankle boots and gave it a sporty makeover. The streamlined Chelsea ankle boots were redeveloped with comfortable sneaker soles to make them more sports friendly. The neoprene or mesh patches on the uppers and the colored pull on tabs further enhanced the designs with sporty vibe.
For Prada women shoes pre-fall 2018, the designs came out less gym practical but more like party ready. Prada grounded the sporty Chelsea boots with spike stiletto for a polished sophisticated touch. The open toe front looked elegant and sexy.
Socks played a major role in styling for both men and women shoes on the runway of Prada fall 2018. Printed with the brand’s name on the side, the socks added pop of color to the muted shoe styles. The heel protector inspired half socks styled with strap sandals are visually interesting and practical too. The inspirational idea no doubt will soon find its way from catwalk to the street.
