Bright, Bold, Colorful: Sneaker Trends for 2020
You can never be too loud when it comes to footwear. Prepare to turn some heads and shake up your rotation with this sneaker round up.
Shoes are meant to be noticed, and if you’ve ever stopped someone in their tracks because of what’s on your feet, you’re doing it right. There’s nothing like that feel-good moment when someone looks up from their phone or their mat stretch just to check out your kicks.
That kind of attention is powerful, but the recipe for showstopping can be delicate: a design needs to be unique in order to impress the toughest critics. A sleek plain black or white sneaker always looks killer, but this season, eye-catching sneakers are having their moment. From runways and red carpets to treadmills and boxes, detailed prints and bright palettes are making headlines in 2020.
This list of bold kicks is for those with the confidence to make a statement whether you’re headed to the gym or out with friends. Choose your favorite and show everyone how to up their style.
For those who love color but favor classic shapes, this shoe is a bold take on the Club C 85 and also comes in our Classic Leather silhouette. The silhouette is infinitely wearable no matter if you’re at a music festival or out with friends, the bold hue lets you stand out and show off your style.
