The Grandpa Sneaker Trend

March 2, 2018

Fashion | by Samuel Bensoussan

Candid’s Samuel Bensoussan looks at the grandpa sneaker trend that has heads turning.
Traditionally, the grandpa sneaker was destined for… the grandpa. Or the gym addict. Until 2018, when it became THE THING when anyone was talking about sneakers.
We’ve seen the trend on top models, and as Vogue mentioned “Who would have thought that a wing-bearing, lingerie-wearing Victoria’s Secret Angel might love a good grandpa sneaker?” 
If you are a fan of the grandpa sneaker trend, here are five top pairs to style with your best outfit:
