Sneakers are booming, there is no doubt about it. Whether it’s the avantgarde models on the runway or the flashy pairs worn by fashionable celebrities: they are unmissable in any wardrobe. As almost anything goes, they are a great investment to finish your outfits with. Get ready for the hottest 2018 sneaker trends, and find out how to combine them with our Resort 2019 pieces!


Probably the most style forward in this list, this trend is not for traditional sneaker lovers. But if you’re ready to take a bold step, this look might be something for you. Yes they’re big, but not oafish due to the combination of curves and tight lines. The Louis Vuitton Archlight series and the Nike Max 95 Essential are your go to models if you’re ready for something out of the ordinary.


Back to the future!  The love for these retro classics will never die, so of course they’re still around in 2018. The New Balance 574’s, Converse’s Chuck Taylor’s and Adidas Originals are a great option for those who love a clean, simple model. Always a great look, and perfect to combine.

Sock sneakers

Is your washing machine separating your socks? Or do you just prefer shoes you can just step into in the morning? Lucky you, because sock sneakers are a thing in 2018. Some fashion trends are innovations, as you could read in one of our earlier articles. Louis Vuitton’s Aftergame sneaker boot, Balengacia Speed Trainers or Maison Margiela’s Rib Knit sneakers, the choice is yours.


Elle USA calls them orthopedic, others call them ‘ugly sneakers’. The little sister of the avantgarde sneaker is much talked about indeed. Even though they vaguely resemble the infamous Spice Girl shoes they look very on trend and 2018. Experimental style icons like Kanye West and fashion collective Vetements are the ones to bring a bit of chunky futurism to the world. Balenciaga’s Triple S, Sketchers’ D’Lite Now and Then and Fila’s Heritage Disruptors are your go to models for this look.

Cool color combo’s  

We all know life is a party, and with this colorful 2018 sneaker trend you can sprinkle a bit of happiness everywhere! Glitters, funny fabrics, metallics, anything goes. Puma has a great, intensely popular collection featuring the Thunder Electric, Evolution RS-O PLay, and the already iconic yellow and pink Creepers by Fenty x Puma.
