The chunky dad sneaker isn’t over yet, and Dior made that very clear. The Men Fashion Week in Paris was all about the new Frozen Yellow – Red sneaker they showed off for their Spring/Summer collection. From Future, Gully Guy Leo to Bella Hadid, all cool people were wearing an all-black outfit with the chunky shoe, that will be released somewhere in February. [UPDATE: Dior just confirmed that the sneakers will drop on Friday, February the 9th.]
On the 20th of January, Kris Van Assche showed his Spring/Summer collection in the Salon D’Honneur at the Grand Palais in Paris. The biggest it-item we spotted on the guests was definitely the new dad shoe. With this sneaker, Van Assche tried to bring the energy of the youth to the catwalk. Twenty models walked a green grass carpet wearing yellow-red kicks that reflects Dior’s DNA.
Reflective frozen yellow
We can officially say Dior has adopted the dad shoe trend from Balenciaga. It’s everything we’ve expected from 2018’s sneaker trends. The colorway has a nineties flame shirt vibe, and Dior has hopped on the Frozen Yellow trend at the right moment. And added up to the game by making the Yellow parts reflective.
As the face of Dior, Bella Hadid already got the sneakers from Van Assche himself. She showed them off on her Instagram posing with Marc Goehring. The shoes took over the Paris streets, and by the looks of it, the Dior sneaker will be the next big thing. Also, on Van Assche’s Instagram, an all-white version was spotted next to the Frozen Yellow – Red colorway. So time to start saving your lunch money to get your hands on this pair. Especially when they will be dropping this February.
