From Dad sneakers to sporty sock boots, we’ve seen a lot of catchy sneaker trends infiltrate our Instagram feeds. And while we enjoy a good talking-point sneak, there are certain styles that we go back to time after time — we’re talking versatile, failsafe icons that never go out of style. And with Black Friday in full force, it's the perfect opportunity to stock up on your faves. As always, the ASOS Insiders are giving us serious style inspo — here's how they're wearing their classic kicks.
INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
ASOS INSIDERS WEAR CLASSIC SNEAKERS
By Eleanor Dunne, November 24, 2018
You’d be hard-pressed to find an ASOS Insider (or ASOS staffer for that matter) who doesn’t own a pair of Converse Chuck Taylors. And if you work in the type of office that allows for sneakers, these monochrome babies are ideal worn with black pants and a check blazer a la ASOS Insider Scarlett. Cuffed hems, encouraged.
Fun fact: the Nike Air Force 1 was first created in 1986 and was named after the POTUS' mode of transport. It comes in hundreds of colors and textures, but a plain white leather pair are the ultimate go-with-everything style. Just ask ASOS Insider Astrid, who wears them with sweats and sporty white socks (near a beach if poss).
Run, Forrest, run! You may not sprint across America in your Nike Cortez like Mr. Gump, but they will def fast track your sneaker game. ASOS Insider Scarlett brings it again with a boxfresh pair plus some Dickies and matching nail polish. We’re into it.
Looking for something that feels both current and classic? Try the Reebok Aztrek. With highlighter-blue accents and a chunky sole, they're tapping into three vibes: the Dad sneaker, the neon trend and '90s nostalgia. Plus, you'll be wearing them for seasons to come. What's not to love?
