As athleisure retains its trendy status, it's a must to invest in footwear that will keep up with your sporty aesthetic. And while plain sneaks are always a good investment, you should also know the new kicks that will soon dominate the streets. Below, see the emerging trends you'll soon see everywhere at the turn of the year.
1. Bulky sneakers
The chunkier your shoes are, the better! Just take it from the runways of Louis Vuitton and Vetements. Bulky soles echo the silhouette born from the '90s and found its place in the new millennia, where oversized shoes are slowly becoming an outfit's focal point.

2. Dad sneakers
Stemming from another trend from the past, your dad's favorite pair of trainers are your new stylish companion. The once no nonsense kicks are now the must haves to balance off your whole look—ultimately refraining you from looking too basic. Plus, with a luxury brand like Balenciaga saying this ugly shoe is now the pretty thing to have, who are we to argue?

3. Sock sneakers
Sock boots may have that sleek look you're after, but nothing beats having your feet rest comfortably on the ground. And with its sock iteration that's easy to slip on and go, it's no wonder they have become the fave of on-the-go girls. So, go forth and invest in this minimalist shoe style in crisp colorways that will make your OOTD decisions a whole lot easier.

Black and white will forever be a must in your closet. But update your pairs in monochrome colors that have multiple textures to add depth to your shoe. Go with all-white or all-black slightly puffy pairs to upgrade your shoe game.
