As sneaker technology has improved and brands favor more future-forward designs, new releases are becoming simpler and simpler. Aside from the retro sneaker trend that has long been the top priority for sports and fashion brands alike, laceless kicks have woven themselves into the fabric of all major fashion week presentations and become a huge player in the sneaker game.
On top of that, laceless sneakers are easy to slip on and off, making them the perfect option for those lazy days. Our selection below features high fashion evolutions of the sock silhouette, including an adidas GSG9 training shoe in collaboration with LA’s UNDEFEATED.
But laceless sneaker options don’t begin and end at sock-like shoes. Here, we’ve also highlighted some of our favorite slip-on sneakers, including everything from classic Vans‘ to elevated strap sneakers by the likes of Prada.
And, for those who only rep The Swoosh, Nike has also been experimenting with new closures on its iconic Air Force 1, now sporting utility-inspired buckles and chunky straps.
