The Dad Trainers That Are So Ugly They’re Cute

These dad trainers are so ugly they're cute! Get on trend with these chunky sneakers that you can pair with just about any outfit!

Chunky dad trainers are the latest trend and are literally so ugly that they’re cute. The Balenciaga Triple-S Trainer is iconic – and hellishly expensive – by now. You’ve probably seen those Louis Vuitton trainers popping up in your feed, too. Again, expensive. Like, way more than my rent. As much as I would love to be in a place where I could drop half a grand on a pair of trainers without batting an eyelid, alas: it is not the case.

But because I am one of the sheeple who has decided that this trend – the dad trainer – is actually cool (honestly, I probably only think this because everyone is wearing dad trainers now and I want to fit in and be one of the cool kids too), I’ve had to dig around for some cheaper alternatives. On a sidenote, do any of us actually like this trend? Are we just following a stunningly horrifying trend en masse? Or have we finally realised that life’s more entertaining with fun clothes? Am I over-intellectualising this? Yes. Anyways. Here’re my picks for dad trainers that are so ugly they’re cute:
