The first months of 2019 flew by fast with trends coming and going but the love for chunky sneakers is still as strong as ever. We keep seeing the so-called “dad shoe” on the runways from Paris to New York and fashion editorials the world over, proving that the trend is far from over.
That’s why we’re excited that Skechers,the originator of chunky and funky sneakers since the early ‘90s, is expanding it’s best selling D’Lites heritage collection with the release of the new D’Lites 3.0, which was unveiled at the recently concluded Skechers Move In Style event.
Swaggering an updated edgierandheftiersilhouette, the new Skechers D’Lites 3.0 offers an added height and a bolder look with a distinctively street vibe. These killer kicks come in varied styles and colorways, for men and women to easily mix and match with their unique personal style. And despite its chunky look, D’Lites 3.0’s overall construction is lightweight and comfortable to wear thanks to its proprietary memory foam cushioning, just like the D’Lites Originals which Skechers relaunched from its 90’s archive to much fanfare just a few months ago.
Both styles from the D’Lites collection were featured in an unprecedented fashion collaboration with top celebrity stylist and streetwear designer Bang Pineda as the highlight of Skechers’ 2019 Move in Style runway show.
Known for his signature modern, edgy aesthetic, Bangcurated his custom pieces to style with the new D’Lites 3.0 and the D’Lites Originals. The Skechers x Bang Pineda capsule features three style themes inspired by the hottest trends this season: Denim for Days; with denim-inspired apparel paired with neutral-colored D’Lites, After Dark; showing offhead to toe black and white ensembles, and Color Me Bad, which is all about, you guessed it! vibrant, bold colors, combined with equally colorful statement D’Lites.
From the beginning and up to this day, the Skechers has successfully captured the taste of a whole new generation to love chunky sneakers, especially through its iconic D’Lites collection. The arrival of the new D’Lites 3.0 is a testament to Skechers innovation and ability to fuse authentic vintage elements and contemporary street fashion, continuing to impress by delivering something fresh and trendy to the table.
