Sneakers are no longer reserved for the gym––designers continue to thrust the humble shoe into maximalist territory. The street style circuit is a firm indication that well-heeled women such as Giovanna Engelbert, Eva Chen, and Caroline Issa are trading in their stilettos for rubber-soled silhouettes that push the envelope on running shoes. Washed with intricate embellishments, beaded accents, and tactile materials, the practical jogger has become an essential staple of a well-edited wardrobe. Think lace-ups dipped in glitter by Maison Margiela, Colgate-white slip-ons covered in crystals from Roger Vivier, and color-block designs courtesy of Balenciaga. For the fearless fashion aficionado, Gucci’s hybrid platform sneakers are perched on a rainbow-striped block. Join the race in scoring statement trainers by shopping Vogue Arabia’s edit of designer fashion sneakers.
