Colored sneakers fall 2023: models and shades that we will wear next season
Although summer still reigns supreme – and with unusually hot temperatures for the second half of August – autumn is inexorably approaching, and therefore it is advisable to start preparing your wardrobe for the change of season in time. Where to begin? Well, with shoes, for example. Or maybe only the ones that have become ubiquitous, as they have evolved from sports shoes to fashion accessories that fit any look, from the most casual to the most elegant.

But what will sneakers look like next fall?

But next season seems destined to impose itself on a new trend: colored sneakers. How can we know? It was shown to us by supermodels and it-girls of street style, offering a preview of the fall-winter 2023 2024 trends.

And if supermodel Bella Hadid chose cobalt blue for her sneakers last fall, then in recent months, actress Jennifer Lawrence has been showing Adidas shoes in Samba and Gazelle models, which have abandoned purple and green.
Don’t get us wrong, white sneakers will still be in style, if only for their natural elegance and ease of pairing.
