4 women's sneaker trends in 2020

In terms of women's sneakers, the year 2020 will see four very distinct schools compete:minimalist sneakers, colorful and futuristic sneakers, retro sneakers and finally running sneakers. Deciphering these 4 women's sneaker trends for 2020 , models you can fall for without hesitation and look ideas are on the program!

The minimalist school:the converse party and

On the minimalist side, it is by far canvas tennis who wins:from Saint Laurent to Gucci via Céline, sleek and functional sneakers have pride of place . The converse is also making a resounding comeback on the front of the stage, as is the "tradi" model from Vans, available in multiple colors and patterns.

Nike has also lent itself to the game by revising one of its most famous models, the Blazer Mid.

Minimalist basketball:for whom?

For all fans of the chic-casual style first, and for all those who wish to be able to wear their favorite sneakers with their pretty black dress in winter or their linen playsuit this summer! Minimalist women's sneakers are really easy to match and will probably be the most adopted sneaker trend in 2020 .

If the cut is minimalist, you can on the other hand bet on colors or more worked effects. We will see a lot of animal prints, especially at Vans and Converse, and metallic effects, at Reebok or Adidas.

What to wear it with to be trendy?

If you opt for a pair of sneakers simple, like the white Stan Smith or an understated version of the Air Force, you can wear it with everything! With tailored pants for the office, with boyfriend jeans, or even with your favorite dress, summer or winter!


Back to the future in 2020

If you are a fan of ultra-modern sneakers , you will be delighted by the trend of 2020:ever more elaborate shapes, futuristic colors and effects and a good dose of audacity are required for these trendy sneakers in 2020. We also have a big crush on the ultra sharp selection made by the site

Among the most original cuts of the year are the LV Archlight by Vuitton or the Bbold by Balmain.

Futuristic sneakers:for whom?

For those who will assume, clearly! The models in this category are indeed rather showy, and you have to know how to match them to avoid fashion faux pas. With a frankly XXL size and flashy colours, you shouldn't be afraid to stand out. But it's still the guarantee of an ultra-fashionable look, and much more fun outfits than with your eternal white tennis shoes...

How to mix futuristic basketball?

The sneakers go well with a well-worked sportswear look , with cargo pants and a short sweatshirt for example, but it will also work very well with a more sober outfit. For example, you can opt for a total black look, which will go very well with a flashy model like the RS-X3 Puzzle (Puma).

The great classics that we always love

In the same genre as the dad shoes, which made an unexpected but noticeable comeback last season, several brands and designers have brought out old models, or created new ones with a little air of deja-vu.

Note in particular the first women's pair from the Off-White brand, the ODSY-1000 model, which takes up the codes of the skater style of the 90s - 2000s with a massive shoe with a large tongue and flat laces.

Nike has released several reissues of its famous Air Max, Air Force, and Air Jordan models, Reebok has also followed the trend with its Instapump model , and there is, of course, always the traditional Converse, which passes the years without taking a wrinkle!

Who can (re)wear the classics?

Several classics have come out this year, so it all depends on which one you feel like wearing! While it's true that Converse, high or low, isn't much of a problem when it comes to matching it, creating an outfit that will work with something like Off-White's is a whole different story! So it's up to you.

The running shape:perfect for walking in town

Traditional running was already trendy in 2019, it will be even more so in 2020. Balanciaga released his Tyrex, with the air of Sharks, and Chloé its Blake model, a mix between dad shoes and traditional running . In the same genre, there are the W DMX Thrill Aztrek models from Reebok, the Gel-10-90 from Asics, the W Shox TL Nova from Nike… In short, there are plenty of them and from almost all brands!

Basketball running:for whom?

Today there are so many running models that it is possible to find one that will go for all styles, or almost. The shape of the running shoes being indeed very sporty, it does not really look good on an office outfit, nor even with ultra-feminine outfits like a classic skater dress.

What to wear your pair of running shoes with?

We advise you to bet on a vintage look, and wear your women's running sneakers with mom jeans and a slogan sweatshirt, you'll be right in tune with the times.

And on the men's side?

Women aren't the only ones who love wearing their sneakers, and trends in men's sneakers are quite similar . There are classics at New Balance, colorful chunky soles at Puma, Asics, Adidas and others, Vans and Converse are also present of course, and the classic Nikes are still relevant.
