Sneakers have hit the trifecta in the world of footwear fashion. They are not only the most desirable because of comfort but are now seen as the preferred choice of fashion. Once only worn regularly by sneakerheads are now mainstream.
Workplace culture has had a large impact as sneakers were once seen as taboo and those who wore them were not taken seriously in their profession. With casual dress becoming the norm at most workplaces over the past decade the wearing of sneakers has become more prevalent.
Sneaker sightings have gone from rare to, to casual fridays, to sprinkled into a few outfits per week, to now being the main focus of daily fashion.
Any remaining barriers or objections to wearing sneakers during the workweek were completely wiped out by COVID which has completely changed workplace dynamics.
The demand for casual dress options has never been so high. Consumers and sneakerheads alike need footwear that is flexible and can fit multiple occasions. Fashionable enough to turn heads but classy enough to wear to dinner, a ball game, meetings, and out with friends.
