Call us crazy, but you could almost say that sneakers have replaced high heels, stilettos and most other dress shoe.
Just take a look at most street style images, fashion marketing campaigns and in many of the high street stores – wearing sneakers not just to the gym is now a thing, and we definitely think it’s here to stay too!
Long gone are the days where there were only a couple of sneaker styles for men and women to choose from. Now there are SO many, that the choice is almost too difficult to make on which ones to add to your collection.
Most people will already own a pair of sneakers or runners that they use for everyday wear, or for exercise; but some are hesitant to wear them for any other reason, or are unsure how they can pair them with outfits that are in their wardrobe.
We recently ventured into The Hyperdome’s Rebel Sport to see what new sneaker trends they have in store, and decided to test them out to see what they are best for.
