Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez are Making Real Deal Sneakers Happen

We’re all aware of the sneaker’s fashion moment but apparently, the Isabel Marant-ish animal-printed and hidden wedge-heeled styles aren’t enough for the likes of Rihanna, Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez.

RiRi, Kim K. and J. Lo have all dumped the fashion-y sneakers in favor of real deal sneakers. We’re talking bulky, basketball-type, men’s sneakers SNEAKERS and knowing how trendsetting this trio is, we expect this to be a major shoe trend real soon.

Rihanna likes to pair her Nike Air Jordan 12 Retro ‘Playoffs’ sneakers with the street style look she’s been rockin’ lately.

Kim Kardashian seems to mimicking new beau Kanye West’s style. Much the the chagrin of sneaker collectors everywhere, she has almost immediately gotten her paws on a very limited and very expensive edition of these Nike ‘Air Jordan 3’ in white cement/grey.

Jennifer Lopez was one of the first spotted in men’s-type sneakers and although she wore Nike ‘Air Jordan 1 Phat’ sneakers with sporty leggings and a white track suit, that fur scarf and large hoop earrings show that she’s not really going to be doing any sports in them:

What do you think of this new emerging shoe trend? Will you be ON IT or are you already OVER IT?

Air Jordans are clearly the shoes to have if you’re going to be getting on this trend but I find that they have the tendency to look too bulky on women’s feet. I’m personally a fan of retro sneakers but if I were going to try this men’s sneaker trend, I think the farthest I would go would be something like these classic high tops from Amazon.
