Pyer designed some of the iconic Reebok pieces from the 1990s. Also, Manola Blahnik collaborated with several designers, where he designed these corset-like lace up heels for Jason Wu. And also these colorful velvet boots for Catalina Rivera. But by far the trend that has everyone tripping over themselves, are these dorky sneakers.
>> The hottest shoe trend is actually the dad shoe. Which are these chunky sneakers from back in the 1990s and 2000s, that are currently making a comeback in the high end fashion. Last year the Italian luxury name Balenciaga introduced these shoes with sold out instantly, and now the other luxury names like Gucci and McQueen and Christian Louboutin have their own version of these shoes.
