Balenciaga Track Sneaker

Trail running shoes are going to be a massive trend in 2019, with performance features taken from hiking and running sneaker silhouettes. We already saw Balenciaga starting to do it in 2018 and fashionistas wearing  Salamons to fashion week for the first time.

FILA Trail Blazer

Drawing inspiration from a classic hiking boot and modernised with over branding, these FILA kicks are not only functional but aesthetically pleasing too.

Puma X Ader Error

We happily watched from the side lines as Nike and Adidas dominated the sneaker world in 2018. Puma will keep trying to get their foot in the door, with a noticeable collaboration with South Korean brand Ader Error, Barbie, Pepsi and Selena Gomez in 2018. We are expecting big things from them this year.

Adidas Falcons

Dubbed as Kylie Jenners favourite shoe of 2018, we don’t think the chunky-dad sneaker is going anywhere soon. The ’90s-inspired style is the apple of every girl’s eye.😍

New Balance 990’s

New Balance is on every young consumer’s radar due to the resurgence of the 990, continuing to take advantage of their influence of youth culture. It’s a sure-thang that they will dominate in 2019.

COMME des GARÇONS x Nike Platform Cortez

This is another high-fashion take on a sporty silhouette that you’ll either love or hate. We personally LOVE it. This platform version of the Cortez will give you a good extra few inches and will definitely set you above the rest.

Eytys Angel Patent

Having recently done a collab with H&M, Eytys is a brand to watch in SA. They are known for their super-chunky sneakers with thick soles. These can be worn with virtually any outfit and you can either dress them up or down.

Reebok X Vetements Modified Trainer

The distressed look is a trend we have seen on denim, and maybe even a top or two, but aren’t we supposed to keep our sneakers as crispy white as possible? (The answer is yes.) But there’s something about these Vetements Reeboks that flip the script and make for an amazing pair of kicks.
