Student Trend Saturday: Dad Shoes

2019 is the time to ask your dad for his shoes.

In the recent years, ‘dad shoes’ have been the hottest trend in an unusual way. Let’s be honest… 5 years ago, you probably thought they were the worst shoes ever. They’re ugly, chunky, and far from sleek. You would probably find them on your least favorite professor, your funny middle-aged uncle, or your over enthusiastic hiker friend.

Now, you also find them on the streets of Paris Fashion Week, on the Balenciaga runway, and on the shelves of Barneys New York. You see them on A$AP Rocky, on Kendall Jenner, and even on Jonah Hill. 

Dad shoes can work for anyone. They’re comfortable, versatile, and they look amazing. If you don’t own a dad shoe, it’s never too late to visit your local Sketchers to pick one up. Since Bruins never fall behind, they have also incorporated dad shoes into their own wardrobes. Here are some ways Bruins styled dad shoes!
