We have entered the next year in our favourite sneakers. The popularity of these shoes still doesn't pass. In our favorite sneakers, we entered the next year, and the popularity of these shoes still does not pass. On the contrary - sporty, universal footwear is better than ever. However, as usually happens in such cases, trends change. What will be trending this year? Check out our forecast of sneakers trends 2018!

Sneakers - fashion over sport.

Statistically 75% of sneakers in the United States are bought due to aesthetics. These are lifestyle decisions made because of style, not sport. Sneakers have come a long way - initially designed for physical activity, now they are a determinant of fashion. This trend will certainly continue in the new year. However, we can expect the division: the models dedicated exclusively to athletes - in the style of Reebok Instapump Fury - and those more universal.

Platform sneakers

Fashion for platform sport shoes is coming back. Modern versions are much slender than those from 90s. It can be expected that in 2018 their popularity will increase, as they are very comfortable solution for women who value universal footwear. Platform sneakers will work best with casual stylizations, but they will also look good with elegant skirts and dresses. Additional adventage is that those shoes are making legs look longer and they slim the figure. It is difficult to resist! A good example is the Puma x Fenty Rihanna Cleated Creeper Suede.

Normcore and back to the past

Sneakers once considered to be not very beautiful and those whose star has already faded, are born again. 2018 is a great come back of models from the 90s and 2000s that were present in television, and now often ridiculed. Clumsiness, gray trim and negligence are again in fashion. All due of the popularity of "being normal". Normcore is demonstration of ignorance about trends, lack of will to stand out from others, the choice of a practical wardrobe with no special features. The comeback of retro sneakers and "being normal" meet in the middle, creating one of the paradoxically most recognizable trends of this year which is reflected in the New Balance WL999WM model.

The classic is always classy

Fashion for "normality" results in the popularity of classic sneakers. This is one of the most predictible trends in the world of shoes. Although sports footwear develops from month to month, some things stay the same. For example, the good opinion about the Superstar Adidas, converse Chuck Taylor All Star or sliding chess Vans. These and similar models are an investment, so in 2018 you can see them on the streets even more often than ever.

Glitter and rainbow

To highlight the diversity of trends in the world of sneakers, and by the way, deny myself, I will mention fashion for glitter and rainbow patterns that are now everywhere. These two characteristics will be seen in the new year, especially among shoes designed for women. On one hand, sneakers in 2018 will have different colors - not necessarily matching - on the other, they often create colorful waves in the pattern of the rainbow: on the sides or on the back of the shoe. Even soles won't be eliminated - they will sometimes be colored with multi-colored stripes. Some sneakers will literally "shine" with all the colors of the rainbow. Glitter will decorate all their surfaces or selected places, as in the Puma Basket Heart Glitter. This solution is for ones who, unlike normcore's, want to be well seen in the city.

Pastels and balanced colors

Although there will be many colors in the sneaker year 2018 and sometimes they will be seen mismatched, they will maintain rather in balanced tones. In new thends it is hard to look for recently fashionable celadons, bright oranges and yellows. This year will be dominated by pastels: dusty blue, mint, and above all, muted rose, which most probably will be most popular. Some people even say that "pink is the new white". Others add violet to this prediction, which has a chance to be a color of the year. The classic sliding Vans or some of the recent versions of the hit adidas Originals - Pharrell Williams Tennis Hu. There are rumors that the new year kicks, which are made of unusual materials or containing such elements, will be very popular. Don't be surprised if you see on the streats of your city corduroy, jeans or lace on someone's sneakers. While such solutions seem to be very impractical, they can work as interior footwear - for example to wear in the office. It is also possible to see exaggeratedly large bows and highly exposed laces just like we saw last year.

New year - new sneakers, or something like that. When choosing a model, remember what is hot in 2018! Also follow the news at SneakerStudio and the Coming Soon tab!
