While tennis shoes are still well and alive, the rise of chunky sneakers, or “dad sneakers” as they’re known as alternatively, is well on its way. These thick-soled kicks will help you pull off a vintage 90’s look, so pair it with your favorite scrunchie and you’re good to go!
There’s a lot of options when it comes to chunky sneakers, but you can check out some cool pairs that are available online at SSENSE.

Florals have been in fashion for a while now, but we’ve only recently seen them make a move to shoes. Floral boots are popping up as one of the super trends, and you will see them on everything from rain boots to booties. Floral boots can pair well with neutrals to give a pop of color or act as a contrast to an edgier ensemble.
3. Platform Shoes

The platform shoe trend is a godsend for anyone under 5’4”. Who doesn’t love an excuse to add a couple of extra inches to their height?
This style seems to make a comeback every 20-30 years, making waves in the 70’s and 90’s. While some have dubbed it just another style that fits in with the recent “ugly fashion” trends, we think these cuties have a lot of potential!
Platform shoes are effortlessly unique and pretty painless to walk in, so we aren’t seeing many downsides to this trend!
4. Combat Boots
