From fit to fab in big name fashion

THERE'S one trend for both men and women that isn't going anywhere right now - and that's sneakers.

From designers to fashion A-listers, everyone's stepping out in their sneakers, from old-school kicks to seriously sleek, contemporary styled lace-ups.

The new crop of sneakers typically associated with sportswear are taking the catwalks by storm, such as Puma's Eskiva Hi and Nike's Air Max 95 OG. But the stand-out performer remains Kanye West's Yeezy sneakers for Adidas, that are actually, well, a bit fabulous.

Big name designers are also in on the trend. Chanel's fabric and suede calfskin sneakers with the oversized logo make a serious statement (with an accompanying serious price tag). Just as well designed, though not as expensive, Marc Jacobs has interpreted the humble sneaker resulting in a shoe that's infinitely wearable.

The thing about sneaker trends is that they often aren't new styles, they're often old standbys revived by the cool people (such as Isabel Marant for example). Wear them with crop jeans, an oversized jacket or cardi, or a feminine dress for a chic yet sporty look.

The best part? Joggers are not only fashionable, they're super comfortable and they're easy to walk, run, work and play in.

Check out the both bricks and mortar and online stores and cruise to find the right sneakers for you this season.
