If you’re not a heels fan, we’ve got some good news for you: Chunky trainers are still very much in for 2022. For one, the spring 2022 runways at Miu Miu, Givenchy, and Bottega Veneta have all proven that a polished ensemble can still include casual (and, most importantly, flat) kicks.
Street style-wise, we’ve also seen stars like Dua Lipa and Bella Hadid rock elevated trainers just this week. But it’s South Korean model and Squid Game star HoYeon Jung who’s truly kicking off the new year right, by wearing one of the coolest trainers of the moment.
Whereas sleek, minimal white trainers dominated last year, Jung opted for a fresher style to ring in 2022 with. The star wore a chunky pair of green Adidas Yeezy 450 resin kicks, which come with a knitted upper and extra-chunky sole.
Her Kanye West-designed shoe choice is decidedly bigger and chunkier than 2021’s minimal trainers, but we’re totally on board with the look, as it instantly gives her classic jeans and Jacquemus sweater a sporty, edgy feel. She also paired them with a Louis Vuitton monogrammed backpack, to make it feel like more of a model-off-duty moment.
All in all, it’s time to consider wearing hefty trainers like Jung’s this year, because they clearly do all the work for your outfit – what’s not to love about that?
