Since K-dramas are basically fashion shows in and of themselves, it's always a load of fun to spot the exact pieces worn by the Hallyu stars. This information is thrilling because a) you'll then have the option to cop them for yourself, and b) you can get a kick out of finding out how expensive some items can be. Truth be told, the fashion can be as integral to the drama as the plot itself.
Anyway, if you're a K-drama fan and a sneakerhead, then this list is for you. We've rounded up the exact neutral sneakers worn by leading ladies in popular K-dramas. Whether you're on the hunt for versatile sneakers or just curious, read on!
1. Juun.j x Reebok Pump Court Shoes
In the final episode of Vincenzo, Jeon Yeo-been wore these limited edition dad sneakers with a navy suit. If you're wondering if these were the shoes she used to kick the antagonists close the edge of the building, then yes, you are absolutely correct!

2. Tommy Hilfiger Billy 1C Sneakers
If you've watched Park Min-young in Her Private Life, then you're familiar with all the opening montage of her getting the gallery in order in the premiere episode. In it, she changed from nude pumps into these trusty Tommy Hilfiger kicks with the distinctive colorway.

3. Chanel Velvet Calfskin Sneakers
K-dramas famously go great lengths to conceal the logos on the garments and accessories worn by the actors, but in Graceful Family, we were treated (perhaps accidentally) to the tellate Chanel monogram on Lim Soo-hyang's kicks!

4. Vans Core Classic
Where the Camellia Blooms' Gong Hyo-jin is proving the mettle of a classic white sneaker. Even with her poet-sleeved pink top, plaid-and-lace skirt, and pink trousers, the sneakers still stand out and even clean up the outfit a little. The sneaker in question, of course, is a classic pair from Vans, and yes, it's locally available!

5. Golden Goose Superstar Sneakers
We have to say, this glittery pair is very on brand for Kim Da-mi's character in Itaewon Class. In the twelfth episode of the show, she was spotted wearing these Superstars from the high fashion brand Golden Goose...in the playground. It's up to par, though, since we spotted her stomping around in all kinds of designer shoes.

Leave it to Seo Ye-ji's character in It's Okay to Not Be Okay to don a pair of white Chanel sneakers during a camping trip! This lovely leather pair is quite unassuming, until you see the Chanel logo around the heel.

8. Alexander McQueen Oversized Sneaker
This adorable pair from Alexander McQueen was seen on Kim Ha-neul in 18 Again. The camera lingered on it for a few seconds longer than usual, which is fine by us–more time to gawk at its youthful shape!

9. New Balance 480v5 (4E) Sneakers
For that effortlessly cool post-gym look, make like Bae Suzy and don a neutral jacket and pair it with timeless New Balance sneakers. It's not exactly an off-white pair, but the grey tone is warm and stylish!

Kim Go Eun wore a lot of Converse in The King: Eternal Monarch. The most netural pair we spotted is the Chuck 70 in a universally flattering off-white shade. She wore the pair with dark jeans and a long trench coat for a laidback and classy look.
