What’s Trending in Womens’ Sneakers in Australia
Sneakers are having a continued moment and we’re here for it! Here’s a quick rundown of what’s trending in women’s sneakers in Australia in 2022.
The everyday sneaker
A pair of simple white kicks is essential to every Australian women's sneaker collection. Whether you are pairing them with the Blanca Romi Dress for a chic dinner fit or wearing them with your favourite bike shorts and an oversized tee for a quick dash to the shops, a pair of white sneakers will elevate your look and keep you looking effortlessly on point.
For that reason, we can’t look past Australian sneakers brand Superga, whose lightweight sneakers offer a timeless silhouette that looks good with *everything*.
Those who are *obsessed* with women's sneakers in Australia will already know this brand…and if you don’t, listen up! VEJA, pronounced ‘Vey-ja’ is an ethical organisation best known for their eco-friendly sneakers made with raw materials sourced from organic farming and ecological agriculture, without chemicals or polluting processes. Not only are these women’s sneakers super stylish and on-trend, they are thoughtfully produced in dignified conditions and designed to be as friendly as possible to Mother Earth and the environment. It’s a win-win for us.
Love them or hate them the ‘dad shoe’ is here to stay and it should be obvious that we’re in the LOVE camp! With the rise of comfort-casual and sportswear, it’s all about chunky athletic-style women’s sneakers in Australia - and with so many cute designs and colours available, it’s easy to see why.
Our pick? The New Balance 5740, available at HyperLuxe in five super chic colourways. Drawing inspo from 80s and 90s fashion, this versatile women’s sneaker combines a sleek, running-inspired silhouette with a balanced suede and mesh upper, soft underfoot cushioning and a sturdy outsole for all-day comfort and chic everyday style. Wear them with your favourite activewear for a sweat sesh at the gym or chuck on with a LBD for an elevated look that will take you from day to night.
Sports-focused and stylish
2022 is all about getting out there, moving our bodies and investing in a healthy lifestyle... And who said this means we have to sacrifice style?! At HyperLuxe, we’re seeing a rise in demand for Australian women’s sneakers that offer support, comfort AND style all in one.
Introducing the Asics Gel Kayano - an everyday trainer that not only looks good, but that combines comfort with support, and even offers built-in reflective materials that helps keep runners visible when running in low-light conditions.
… OR if you’re more into showing off your pedicure - we get it, they’re expensive! - we have a few brands of Australian womens’ sandals up our sleeve.
Firstly, we cannot recommend Freedom Moses enough. Hailed as one of the most sought-after brands of women’s slides in Australia, Freedom Moses slides come in SO many cute colours and patterns and they are recyclable, cruelty-free and 100% vegan. PLUS they’re waterproof, hand washable and lightly scented of milk and honey. What more could you want?
On the other hand, if you’re on the hunt for something on the more fancy side for summer dinners and nights on the town, the James Smith X HyperLuxe Odyssey Sandals are our new go-to. We especially love their soft genuine leather upper, adjustable straps and a chunky rubber sole for that extra bit of height. Yes, please!
