This Elaborate Sneaker Trend Is Going to Divide Crowds

We're still trying to get our heads around the Nike AirMax comeback (if you don't believe us, just look at this girl's incredible collection), but sneaker trends wait for no man, and this week within stores, you'll perhaps notice a niche trainer style emerging as a frontrunner for spring. While sandals are still a way off, and we've already indulged our ankle boot love for the new season, trainers can still be a fulfilling option for newness. Especially when they come laced with gemstones and glitter. Yeah, you heard that right. 

These new sneakers are on speed and armed with fairy dust. They come approved by high-fashion arbiters such as Miuccia Prada and most likely any girl who loves the idea of partying all night long without foot pain. These delightfully decadent kicks come in all styles and finishes—with tufted feathers being our personal weakness right now. Part showgirl, part Olympian, these rad trainers are notching up retail space, with everyone from Dolce to Zara getting in on the act. Well, they are the most effective pick-me-up for day-to-day denim and every worn-out coat you own.
