Two Ways to Style the “Dad Sneaker”


Well, guys, I did a thing. I bought a pair of “Dad shoes”.

You know what I’m talking about. The super chunky sneaker with thick soles. Seriously, just picture the most stereotypical “Dad.” Yes, those are Dad shoes.

I swore to myself I would never be a part of this trend, BUT I found a pair that I actually like. And it doesn’t hurt that they are so, so comfortable.

Maybe your on the fence as well. Maybe you just don’t know when, where, or how you’d ever wear them. Well today I’m going to show you TWO different ways to style this chunky sneaker.

Look 1: With Denim
Go for a casual look with anything denim. Jeans, a denim skirt, or in my case, a pair of high waisted denim shorts. Heck, really go for it, and go full on Canadian tuxedo with a denim jacket. I opted for a bright yellow camisole for underneath because it screams summer and adds a nice pop to the look.

Look 2: Dress it up.
Okay, it’s a sneaker, so you can only dress them up so much. But you can wear them WITH a dress. Casual, comfortable look by day; swap the shoes and you’re ready for a night out. Scroll down for all my outfit details.

So what are your thoughts on the trend? And how would you style the “Dad shoe?”
