Dad shoes are proving to be the mother of all the latest footwear trends.

Chunky sneakers, such as the dominant Balenciaga Triple S, are taking over street style, brand collections high and low and celebrity wardrobes alike. While the stocky walkers seem impractical for complementing an everyday look, megastars including Kendall Jenner (along with sister Kourtney Kardashian and bestie Bella Hadid) prove otherwise.

Notably, among the many ways to interpret them squarish outerwear and tops have been common pairings for the thick-soled kicks. Could there be a secret stocky shoe-meets-boxy tops memo? Perhaps only the Kardashian-Jenner-Hadid group text will ever know. What’s clear either way is that the trend is upholding its fashionable reputation, regardless of how it’s decked out.

Here, FN rounds up the troupe and nine other celebrities embracing the hefty footwear in style.

Big Boi

In August 2017, the rapper’s gold Nike Air Maxes stood out against his tone-on-tone outfit at the BMI R&B and Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta.
