INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
ASOS INSIDERS IN SS19 SNEAKERS
By Justine Fedorowycz, 20 April 2019
For as long as we can remember (read: since we could tie our own shoelaces), sneakers have been a staple in our footwear collection. Not only do they go with literally everything (jeans, skirts, dresses, you name it), they’re also supremely comfy *gives heels the side-eye*. And with guest appearances from the likes of Nike, Reebok and Converse in our latest sneaker drop, there are loads to choose from. Keep scrolling to see how ASOS Insiders are wearing theirs.
Controversial opinion: mixing animal print, neon and beige is aesthetically on point. What we really want to discuss, though, are ASOS Insider Barbara’s chunky Buffalo sneakers. Taking the dad-trainer silhouette to new heights, she manages to elevate her 90s-inspired get-up to official comeback status – pops would be proud. Top it all off with visor sunglasses and a clear plastic tote.
Designed for all intents and purposes (albeit mainly casual ones), Reebok’s Sole Fury sneakers (complete with neon accents) offer a striking, streetwear-inspired take on the brand’s legacy. Follow ASOS Insider Lesley’s lead by teaming them with rolled-up, light-wash jeans and a plain white singlet for your everyday thing. To finish, simply throw a co-ordinating bum bag into the mix – job done.
Looking like a sartorial snack, ASOS Insider Ari’s Pink Sea Nike Air Max 720s are making us feel some type of way. Kitted out with Nike’s tallest Air unit yet, which spans the entire length of the outsole, when we say these babies offer all-day comfort, we’re not kidding. Ari pairs hers with raw indigo jeans and a silver puffer jacket that picks out those metallic accents.
Chalk it up to experience, but we always come back to Vans when it comes to reshuffling our trainer rotation. Part of the iconic brand’s original Anaheim Factory Pack, ASOS Insider Jana’s pair are a nod to Vans’ early-90s sports styles, and come in a heritage-inspired colourway. And when your creps look this good, why not keep things simple up top? Light-wash jeans and a crisp cotton shirt oughta do it.
