Not because of Individual Style, we see each other more and more alike. Unless you wear a sneaker that deviates from the norm.
People can already agree with the fashion trends of a hundred years ago. In the 1920s, for example, many women suddenly switched to Marilyn pants. It was the same in the 1950s with men’s denim jackets. And so on: mini dresses, shoulder pads, platform shoes and skinny jeans. It is becoming more and more clear that we are becoming more and more alike. It’s not just a few pieces of fashion anymore – the more powerful a given fashion company enters the market, the more likely it is that few pieces will stay the same.

Sneakers are for that purpose anyway, because there aren’t as many brands and even fewer that flood the surface of the trend year after year.
Tennis, of all things, can now overcome the same and the same. Velcro ring! It’s still special, even if some brands – from Adidas and Veja to Chloé and Isabel Marant – are now getting involved. No, it’s not just about the first shoe for years when kids are too young to tie bows. The velcro sneaker is the 0-99 shoe to refer to, if any, in the kids line (another trend). Foosball table in lobby and puzzles on Sunday, childhood feel for adults.
The velcro sneaker isn’t likely to be a hit in the boardroom and on the red carpet anytime soon, because for all its convenience, it’s also a little off-putting in its weirdness. That doesn’t have to be a hindrance in the dull gray day-to-day, check out Teva’s hook-and-loop sandals, which have been the talk of many places since last summer. However, not here in Germany. Because everyone wears Birkenstocks here.
