The 14 Best Fashion Sneakers to Buy for Fall 2019

As dad jeans and even dad bods continue to have a moment in the fashion sun, this fall, dad shoes are still, against all odds, the height of fashion. While Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Yeezy by Kanye West were among the first brands to kick off the garish, Seinfeld-worthy trend at prices that no suburban dad would ever spring for, the Balenciaga Triple S secured the trend’s place in fashion. In addition to investing in runway dad sneakers for fall, track sneaker styles are in the running with their chunkier cousin to become the most popular this season. New Balance, and Adidas are also betting the house that hype beasts of all ages—(including Juergen Teller, our dad-shoe-wearing dad model)—will follow in their fathers’ comfy footsteps, while vegan brand Veja and newcomer Joshua Sanders are making strides. Here, the 14 of best sneakers of the fall season, below.
