    What are Dad Shoes?


    Chunky, rough and a bit "ugly" - that describes the dad sneaker quite well. Some celebrate the trend around the shoes with the wide sole, others see it as a real fashion sin. But one thing is certain: real sneakerheads have not been able to get around these kicks in recent years. But where does the dad shoe actually come from?
    The Sneaker trend surrounding the ugly dad sneaker with the thick sole has its origins in the 90s. At that time, the sneakers were mainly worn by American dads because of their comfort - hence the name. However, no one really found the sneakers cool back then.
    It wasn't until 2017 that luxury brand Balenciaga managed to turn the comfortable shoe into a fashion statement. The Triple S is considered the dad sneaker of all and convinces models, influencers, but also the common sneakerhead - with a futuristic silhouette, patterned laces and of course: the chunky sole.
    In recent years, more and more sneaker manufacturers such as Nike, Puma or adidas jumped on the hype train. Today, the ugly "dad-treader" is a real go-to especially for the ladies when it comes to casual street style. With new abgespacten color combos, materials and shapes, manufacturers breathe new life into the retro again and again. We can only say: Our fathers had taste even back then. Thank you, Dad!


    The trend sneaker: Back to the 90s


    The provocative styles of "Ugly Fashion" are more popular than ever. Fashion is allowed to be loud, colorful and different - and it even should be. So it's no wonder that the fashion pieces of the 90s are celebrating their great revival: baggy jeans, neon colors and chunky Sneaker are part of the perfect street look for many people.
    The dad sneakers with their bulky soles and iconic silhouettes can be combined both casually and elegantly. This is not least due to the variety of styles: On the one hand, sneakers that come with a wild material mix of suede, mesh and leather. Bright colors in the upper or patterned laces underline the 90s vibe and make the kick a real eye-catcher. On the other hand, the manufacturers offer comfortable retro models with colorways in simple beige and gray tones that perfectly match the understated classic look.
    What the trainers all have in common, however, is their chunky shape. Whether curved, straight or extra Plateau - nothing distinguishes the dad sneaker more than the chunky sole. It not only ensures maximum comfort (after all, it used to be Dad's running shoe) and a nice shape, but also makes the kicks a real eye-catcher.

    Which dad sneakers are thick in business?


    Dad sneakers, the shoes with the oversized, thick and chunky sole, are available from almost every major sneaker manufacturer - and for one simple reason: everyone wants the trainers with the platform, which provides maximum comfort and also trends with the shape.
    The brand that every sneakerhead probably associates first with the dad shoe trend is New Balance. The American brand offers various retro models that probably already our fathers liked to wear - and perhaps still do. New Balance Sneaker The Nhead trainers are available in numerous colorways, whether strikingly colorful or in subtle natural tones. The trainers with the N on the side convey the 90s vibe like no other sneaker.
    Real classics among the dad sneakers are of course the Nike M2K TEKNO, the adidas FALCON or the OZWEEGO. The partly futuristic interpretation of retro shoes is characterized by a particularly striking silhouette, which is less reminiscent of the typical dad sneaker, but rather focuses on the chunky sole.
