They are comfortable, versatile and never go out of style: sneakers simply belong in every shoe cupboard. But which models are currently particularly popular? We present the sneaker trends for 2024 – and also have styling tips ready.

While black or red sneakers were in trend in previous years, in 2024 white sneakers are the right choice. If you still have classics in your closet, you can wear them with a clear conscience and are therefore right on trend. Above all, chunky or ugly models as well as high-top sneakers in white are popular with both women and men. You can read about which white sneakers will be trendy in 2024 here.

Styling tip: You can’t really go wrong with white sneakers in any look: they go just as well with a jeans-sweater combination as they do as a style break with a suit or dress. Especially in the chunky or ugly version, i.e. a little clunky, they are eye-catchers in every look.

Chunky and particularly eye-catching sneaker models are still popular. Ugly or chunky sneakers will come in 2024 in a slightly weaker version and no longer according to the motto: the more, the better. So if the shape is already striking, the color can be a little more reserved. The other way around: If the color of the sneakers is already an eye-catcher, the shape shouldn’t be too extreme. Models with a slimmer silhouette and cool color combinations are particularly popular right now.

Styling tip: Chunky or ugly sneakers in a toned down form can be combined in a variety of ways. They always go great with jeans and provide the necessary eye-catcher with a casual outfit, as well as with a blazer or suit combination. If you’re brave, you can also style the chunky kicks with a skirt or dress. You should just make sure that the colors of the sneaker are also reflected in the top or dress in order to create an overall harmonious look with few extreme disruptive factors, but still exciting.

While low-top sneakers, i.e. shoes with a slightly lower cut, were popular in previous years, the sneaker trends for 2024 say that things can go high. Based on classic basketball shoes, the trend sneakers can also come with prints or in the series or band version. Cool high-top models are currently available from Vans in the Foo Fighters version, from Adidas (“Forum 84”), Nike (“Dunk”) and Converse. But it can also be classics like Vans.

Styling tip: Since high-top sneakers do not look as delicate as low-top models and cover the ankle, they are less suitable with a dress or skirt, but go best with trousers. But they also add a cool touch to suit, blazer or jacket combinations.

The high-top sneakers already indicate it: In 2024, the sneaker trends will be a bit influenced by the past. Retro sneakers are back in style. Our shoes are welcome to pick up trends from the past few years and we can bring cool models out of the shoe closet: for example, classic Vans with a checked pattern, Nike Air Max or other sneaker treasures, also with series prints.

The sneaker trends for 2024 are also practical: running shoes are popular that can not only be combined as a fashion highlight, but also have a function. The purchase is worth twice as much.

Styling tip: Running shoes can be combined similarly to ugly or chunky sneakers and of course add a sporty touch to an outfit. Depending on your taste, they go well with a street style look, but also with a feminine or business look.
