With camera phones turning bystanders into amateur paparazzi, the red carpet isn’t the only place to catch celebs in the latest fashion. Pop icons like Rihanna and Nicki Minaj are known to dress to kill behind the velvet rope, but are also donning trendsetting sneakers when caught candidly. Check out these shoes they’re rocking to stay in the know.
First produced in 1917, the Converse All-Star (colloquially known as the “Chuck Taylor”) has been worn by everyone, everywhere. Nearly 100 years and 800 million pairs later, and you can expect these to stick around for a while. Add that to the fact that its simplicity and adaptability is unmatched, and it’s easy to see why these shoes are so popular.
Ironically, retro is back. The Nike Blazer is another pair of shoes that is making waves among celebrities. With this pair, you have an intentionally discolored sole, adding to the vintage look. Coupled with an upper composed of colorful print, and it’s perfect for those looking for a little extra attention.
With a name that arguably flies higher than the Chuck Taylor, the Nike Air Force 1 is the epitome of street fashion. It’s been immortalized in songs, and enshrined in the closets of the biggest names in music and fashion. Available in various color combinations, you can either keep it modest or get creative with the possibilities.
