I never thought I would utter these words.. but ugly shoes are in! Yep, it’s true. The ugly dad sneaker is the hottest thing to wear on your feet this year!

Before I get started blabbing on about my new favourite sneaker style… I just wanted to apologise for my lack of posts recently. I had some health issues last week that saw me spending more time at the doctors surgery than anywhere else really, which obviously made posting a little bit difficult! (I’m all good now btw!) 

Anyway, back to the dad sneakers… I’m sure you have all seen the cool-girl-model type celebrities rocking the latest designer takes on this trend, with Balenciaga’s Triple S sneakers being one of the most coveted styles. Although personally, even if I had $1000+ to spend on a pair of sneakers, I would probably still be inclined to stick to a cheaper alternative. Let’s just say.. It is definitely not one of those ‘classic’ trends that you will be wearing for years to come! But hey, obviously we want to live out our cool-model-off-duty dreams too, so I have found some killer dad sneaker dupes below that would rival their designer counterparts.

Oh and if you are sitting here wondering ‘that’s all well and good for models but how the hell am I going to style the so-uncool-they-are-actually-cool dad sneaker’. Well surprisingly, they go with anything and everything! Dresses, suits, vinyl pants, denim jeans.. they are just as versatile as the next sneaker so don’t be afraid to give this one a go!

    I saw a lot of these sneakers at fashion week. But I don’t think this trend is for me, as cool as it looks! Love your long Jac and Jack tee! They are the softest t-shirts!

    Such a chic and edgy casual look dear! Love the blazer and sneaker combination. The Vinyl leggings adds a pretty glossy texture to the look too.
