8 Cool Chunky Sneakers You’ll Want To Wear With Everything

by | Aug 8, 2019 | Style

One minute mom jeans are being mocked on SNL, the next, the high-waisted denim is the latest must-have. And what goes well with mom jeans? Dad sneakers (duh!).

ICYMI, 2018 saw the comeback of the chunky sneaker, and 2019 has been the year they took over every corner of your Instagram feed. Designers like Gucci and Steve Madden have embraced the clunky trainer trend, and tbh, I’m here for it. ‘Dad sneakers’ are comfortable and some are even height boosting — talk about a win-win.

Plus, there are flashier versions for fashion risk-takers and more subtle styles for those who just want to dip their toe into the chonky-sneaker pool (figuratively speaking). Regardless of your preferences, the shoes you once snickered at your ol’ man for wearing aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Here are our fave sneakers of the season so far.

1/ adidas Originals OZWEEGO

Talk about a ‘blast from the past’ — not only do these sneaks feature signature adiPRENE technology from the adidas archive, but their design has also been inspired by the OZWEEGO 3 (a lightweight and comfortable cushion runner silhouette from 1998).
