2021 may be the biggest year for the sneaker world. From the hottest collaboration to classic throwbacks, sneaker enthusiasts are sure to look forward to these trends throughout the year.
1. Haute Couture x Streetwear
When you thought some of the best things in the world don’t mix, you would have to think again. High fashion brands and sneaker giants are collaborating this year to create the best of both worlds. This could be a way for streetwear to walk into the runways of Fashion Week.
2. Gore Galore
Another big collaboration with sneaker giants, Gore-Tex, has turned major classics into their more durable versions. The way function meets fashion in these classics; you won’t have to worry about running through the rain.
3. Better with Texture
Who knew textures and trainers would be such a great combination? Ever since the corduroy Sean Wotherspoon Air Max 97/1 came out, various styles have come out after. I mean, suede never looked this good on trainers!
4. Sneakers go Metal
Another trend from the “daywear,” metallic trainers, strutted their way back in the sneaker industry. New Balance and the likes have revived this style and polished it to fit in your way of style.
5. The Comeback of the Noughties
The ’00s are surely the next decade to be revived this 20’s. From Nike Shox to the timeless high-cut sneakers from Converse and Nike, the noughties are sure to make the biggest comeback this year.
