Various brands roll out several variations, providing an option for all— whether you're looking for simple, jazzy, chic or classy-looking sneakers, there's one for all.

Let's take a look at some of our favourite sneaker trends:
Colour Blocking Sneakers
Colour blocking uses a few contrasting/opposite colours that work perfectly in harmony. The combination could involve anything: from pink and blue to purple and orange, even including a mix of these colours together. These sneakers are super trendy and add a pop to your look
Style Tip: Pair these sneakers with a basic top and your favourite denims.

Neon colours have been a popular trend with clothing, accessories, and now a famous one amongst sneakerheads. Whether you opt for a complete neon shoe because you're feeling adventurous or those with neon accents, both will garner everyone's attention, a pair that's sure to make heads turn, totally jazzing up a look!
Style Tip: Opt for a monochromatic look and let the neon sneakers do all the talking.
Chunky sneakers are an old style making a comeback as a trend amongst several sneaker lovers. These sneakers have soles that are super thick/chunky, the sole reason we love the trend! Initially having gained popularity back in the '80s, a pair worn by skaters, these are now donned by everyone. It's the perfect pair for those who want to add a little height to their look without wearing heels, a blend of comfort and fashion!
Style Tip: Pair them up with a skater dress or printed shorts, creating the perfect balance!
Who would have thought that embellishments look great, even on sneakers? It's the add-on pizzazz to the footwear that we love, perfect for those nights where you need to dress up but love to wear only sneakers. It's a bit out-of-the-box, but a truly great one, with brands giving the option of having your complete shoe filled with gems or only parts.
Style Tip: Take your formal wear up a notch with some gorgeous Embellished sneakers.

Monochromatic sneakers are one colour completely, whether pink, purple, red, neons or pastels, and look absolutely incredible no matter what you wear. They are essentially a pair where the sole, laces and every other part of the shoe are the same colour or shades of the same colour. They add structure to your look, and what we love about them is that they are a conversation starter, no doubt!
Style Tip: Wear a top matching your sneakers and pair it with a contrasting bottom.
There are several celebrity fandoms, and brands are taking advantage of that fact, rolling out limited edition pieces pertaining to these notable faces. The biggest example is Nike rolling out the Jordans in honour of the basketball player Michael Jordan, making it a pair exclusively for him. It was later upgraded in style and design, making it a sneaker trend that everyone hopped on.
Style Tip: These sneakers are super versatile and can be paired with almost everything.
