How Sneakers Became a Luxury Fashion Item
Sneakers have long been considered part of a sports outfit and hardly anyone thought that they would become a stylish piece, without which we can not imagine fashion combinations. Many world brands are already committed to designing the most beautiful models so that they can suit different styles of clothing. They are so popular that we can already say that certain models and designs are becoming really luxurious and are part of the portfolio of fashion houses that have not had such bold collections before.
We used to associate big fashion brands with elegant and stylish clothes for formal occasions. But then they started focusing on all the target groups. If you look at the current offer for Prada, you will see how they are focused on the elegant, but also on the so-called street style, which is preferred by all urban girls. No one does not wants comfort and good style. Fashion is colorful, so everyone can choose what they want, and match the lifestyle they nurture.

For a long time, we saw sneakers only for athletes and those who like casual style. But as time went on, we increasingly saw them as part of the styling of music stars and fashion icons, who are in fact the leading force in world trends.
At the same time, they are worn equally by men and women, and luxury brands such as Prada knew well how to use that important moment and today to have several models in their offer.
Designer signature sneakers are even more in demand, especially for girls who find it important to invest in luxury clothing and footwear and to show it proudly and stylishly.
The courage of the brands to accept them in this way actually contributed to the sneakers being part of the formal style today. The different designs allow us to combine them with jeans, but also with dresses or more elegant combinations.
The real boom in this footwear occurred between- 2009 and 2015, and most millennials are responsible for it. This group of still young people realized that luxury can be easily combined with cheaper products. It was a really big step in the world of fashion because the combinations are really endless, and brands like Prada and similar high-end companies got a unique chance to design comfortable pieces of clothing and footwear, and still keep the luxury stamp they are recognizable to customers.
Comfort above allsource: extraimage.info
If we “blame” millennials again, we should actually thank them for making comfort a cool and affordable option today, even on formal occasions.
Elegant shoes can be really uncomfortable, and wearing tight, high-heeled shoes for a long time is certainly not good for your health. Because of this, the world owes a great deal of gratitude to millennials, especially girls, for normalizing informal comfort and realizing that there is nothing better than moving quickly and safely without fear of getting hurt somewhere'.
However, Gen X still thinks that such a step was not necessary, while Gen Z is lucky not to feel the pressure of society, wearing heels to festivities and formal occasions.
To be realistic, high heels are not comfortable for everyone and there are girls who can’t do it at any cost. For these reasons, brands like Prada, which are dedicated to well-groomed women, have allowed them to wear beautiful and comfortable sneaker designs.

Were it not for celebrities, the choice of sneakers as a favorite piece of clothing might never have been normalized. Many of our idols actually show up with sneakers at their concerts or on the catwalks, and hip-hop culture also has a significant contribution to make.
Furthermore, the brands found a great way to promote their sneakers. They collaborated with celebrities and offered exclusive models, which was the beginning of the popularization of sneakers as an integral part of every fashion style.
There are such collaborations today, but there is no need for greater promotion because consumers know what they want and what is their priority. This way there is no pressure on those girls who hate to buy heels because that is what society demands.
Many successful women in the world of business and fashion never part with their favorite sneakers. And they are an example that every girl should wear what she likes and is comfortable with. When we are not comfortable, we do not feel good or beautiful.

Sports brands have always had sneakers on offer, but that was not the case with luxury fashion houses. Some of them have remained true to their old principles, that they work only for customers who are looking for elegance. And that’s perfectly fine because everyone has different tastes and preferences.
Others have faced great challenges in meeting all expectations but retaining their personal stamp. Prada did a great job in all this, so everyone can find their favorite handbag, perfume, dress, sneakers, or fashion accessories with their signature.
We can say that in fact, we all get in situations like this. Brands have more customers and loyal customers, while people, comfortable with a designer signature. It seems to suit everyone and we can all find ideal sneakers in different price ranges.
Our conclusion is dedicated to all women and girls who are still hesitant. Choose your favorite sneakers. If you wish, spend more money on them instead of uncomfortable shoes. The health of your feet and back is more important than what others say. If you can not wear heels, do not wear them. You see, even sneakers today can be luxurious and stylishly recommended.
Many girls around the world are already doing this. Be brave and choose your favorite sneakers, because there is really nothing better than a great design combined with unique comfort.
We hope that you now understand why people love sneakers, and how important are they for today’s fashion and style. And try some luxurious design. Maybe you will find a new love among them.
