The Sneaker is Having a Fashion Moment

Now that Shopbop, “the curators of cool”, has recognized the fashion moment the sneaker is having, we can now officially say that we have another hot shoe trend on our hands (or should that be “on our feet”?):

We also just want to say that we totally called it! We knew there was a reason why we were unreasonably becoming obsessed with Isabel Marant-ish Steve Madden sneakers¬†and sexy/sporty Ash sneakers, and it wasn’t just because our feet are getting a little high heel-weary.

Sneakers now really are becoming more and more chic and stylish, all without losing their comfiness, sportiness and well-earned street cred. If anything, the more true-to-the-original they are, the better. Just check out some of these retro-ish sneakers Shopbop has put in the spotlight in their sneaker feature:

Giuseppe Zanotti Striped Sneakers, $595.00

Alexander Wang ‘Dillon’ Lace Up Sneakers, $385.00

Sam Edelman ‘Cori’ High Top Sneakers, $100.00

Marc by Marc Jacobs Low Top Sneakers, $165.00

Ash ‘Reflex 2’ Tab Sneakers, $185.00

Maison Martin Margiela Metallic Flat Sneakers, $680.00

Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony Canvas Platform Sneakers, $265.00

Anyone else getting a strong 80s hip-hop vibe from these sneakers, particularly from the mirrored Maison Martin Margielas?

Now I don’t know if I’d be willing to give up my trusty ol’ Chuck Taylors for these but those leopard-printed Sam Edelmans look like they’d be a cool addition to a shoe collection.

Which of these would you try?
