The dad shoe trend just won't go away.
Kanye West made dad shoes cool back in 2017 when he revealed the Yeezy Boost 700 "Wave Runner" to the world. While sneakerheads looked at the shoe with some confusion, likening it to some kind of Walmart discount rack sneaker, people eventually came around and a trend was born. Soon afterward, every single shoe and high fashion company had their designers crank out their own takes on chunky runners. Some shoes were better than others but the trend has survived all the same.
With Adidas being a Kanye collaborator, the brand attempted their own dad shoes, one of which is the Adidas Yung-1. There have been a few colorways of the shoe so far and with Spring here and Summer approaching, the brand with three stripes has a new model in store. This one is interesting as it sports an all-black upper, while each side has neon stripes. For instance, the outside of the shoe has green stripes with orange outlines, while the inside has pink stripes with blue outlines. Adding to the neon aesthetics is a pink and green tongue.
According to Sneaker News, these will be dropping in the coming weeks for $120 USD.
