There are plenty of perks that come with laceless footwear, but when it comes to strapping down a pair that look the part, no-one is immune from tripping up. That said, a select few fashion brands are killing the velcro sneaker game right now, and here we bring you some rotational must-haves for your spring/summer rotation.
Whatever your associations are with velcro-strapped footwear, going laceless is undeniably more practical than dealing with fiddly bows all the time. But velcro kicks are more than just a solution for lazy sneakerheads having emerged as a leading sneaker trend this season, perhaps not all that surprising considering the chunky ’90s silhouettes that have proved immensely popular with sports brands such as Nike and adidas.
Interestingly, though, the best velcro closures of 2019 are being seen at the more luxury end of the sneaker spectrum. Most recently, the chic menswear brand on everyone’s wishlist, Jacquemus, has come through with its SS19 Gadjo sneakers – three canvas beauties in beige, bright yellow, or navy with two large velcro strap closures, while those with a more utilitarian aesthetic needn’t look any further than Kiko Kostadinov‘s ongoing partnership with Camper Lab, whose latest output comes complete with chunky rubber soles and triangular cut-out panels.
