For years, Dads have been known for their corny jokes and bootcut jeans. But some may see them as pioneers of fashion. As of recently, the trend of chunky, normcore Dad shoes has taken streetwear and high fashion by storm.
From as early as the 80’s, oversized athletic shoes were seen as a staple in every dad’s wardrobe. Brands like New Balance, Nike, Fila and Reebok have capitalized on the trend by continuously releasing their popular models as well as collaborating with other designers to revive certain silhouettes. The trend has even attracted the eyes of admirers such as Kanye West, who currently continues to create his own futuristic dad shoes with the Yeezy Brand.
