Let me introduce you the texture sneaker trend. The streets are awash with shearling, calf’s hair, knitted fabrics, embellishments and more. It’s a great feeling to see the softness and warmth that you enjoy in your shoes now outside. Acne Studios Junya Watanabe and Flower Mountain would be great places to begin embracing the comfiest fashion trend of 2024.

Pink will be more popular in 2024! Think again if you thought that the Barbie era was over. The fashion industry continues to be mesmerized with this playful color. You can experiment with classics like Converse Chucks or Adidas Sambas and Gazelles or try a designer collaboration to add a splash of color. Pink sneakers can add a pop of color to your winter wardrobe. Pink can also be neutral!

Hiking sneakers are popular because of their comfortable and technical designs. They’re now hotter than ever. The outdoor aesthetic is now a must-have for anyone who wants to wear them in the office or on a day out. Bonus? They will provide extra support and traction in any weather.

Heavy Metals

This trend looks familiar. Metallics will be around until 2024. All of your favorite sneaker brands are now producing metallic styles. This makes it easier to incorporate this trend into your shoe rotation. While silver is the most popular, don’t overlook colorful metallics when you are searching. This trend will elevate any outfit. I also love the contrast between shiny materials and athletic silhouettes.

Distressed Details

What about pristine sneakers? The past is over. This year, a pair of roughed-up trainers is going to be in style. They are the perfect contrast to tailored clothing and quiet luxury. The sneakers you want are those that look dirty, have frayed details, or appear to be pre-worn. What’s the best part? There’s no need to worry about a small stain or wrinkle after purchase.

Ballet and Bougie

Balletcore, the biggest fashion trend of 2023 and the most popular shoe style of that year, has become the new silhouette of sneakers. You can take your ballet flat collection up a notch with sneakers that provide similar support, and perhaps even some extra height. Sneakers disguised as flats are the spring 2024 shoe trends. You can look stylish and stealthy in your fashion choices. Want to look even more trendy? Choose a pair in pink or metallic.
