Between the resurgence of the most popular sneaker models from the '90s, and your dad’s (and grandad’s) gear becoming a solid source of sartorial inspiration, chunky sneakers are where it’s at this season. So, to get you up to speed with the silhouette, here’s a roundup of well-dressed street stylers exhibiting a whole lot of sole.

STREET STYLERS IN CHUNKY KICKS
By Lakeisha Goedluck, March 23, 2018
Throughout the FW18 fashion weeks, the Balenciaga Triple S style could be spotted on the feet of showgoers everywhere — take this guy, for example, seen at the menswear shows in London. If you look closely, you’ll notice that his whole outfit is centered around the colorway of his sneakers. From his blue heritage-check padded jacket to his white cropped pants and red Louis Vuitton x Supreme flight bag, this is a lesson in color matching done right.
Now, when it comes to rocking big, bulky sneakers, the obvious move is to wear them with a streetwear-lead ensemble. This guy, however, has torn up the rule book and instead opted for a more refined look to prove the versatility of this shoe. Starting off with a smart pinstriped shirt, he layers up with a grandad-style cardigan and a pair of high-waisted pants. To finish, he sports a structural overcoat in the same hue as his Off-White x Nike Air VaporMax kicks.
