As you probably already noticed, I am not a sneaker type of person, although I catch myself looking into them more and more due to obvious comfort reasons and rather wide variety of designs that keep popping up from season to season.
I used to associate sneakers with anything but feminine and something that simply belonged to the gym or sporting activities. But fashion and designer houses are tricky, and that’s the genius of it – they always find the way to appeal to the crowd that didn’t think they needed a certain item in their closet or life in general. Today, sneakers and slip-ons (a lazy version of sneakers) can be found in different prints and finishes, bedazzled, embellished, you name it. Those who never thought they would be caught wearing sporty shoes in public unless it involves burning some calories, are now finding more space in the shoe closet for these added varieties.
These Joshua Sanders slip-on sneakers are a perfect example. They are definite attention grabbers – people seem to either love them or hate them (even though “different” is what I hear the most). The oversized bow detail is fun and unpredictable adds this little quirky statement touch. I love how current culture is being translated into fashion. Emojis, cartoons, comics and imaginary whimsical creatures and details come to life in the shape of patches, stickers, logos, charms and prints thanks to Fendi, Loewe, Anya Hindmarch, Mira Mikati, Moschino, Joshua Sanders and Charlotte Olympia, just to name a few.
