8 Sock Sneakers That Make You Feel Like You’re Walking on Clouds

Fashion

What started off as an unusual breed of shoe—with its stretch-knit, breathable fabric made to resemble an actual sock— has quickly become fashion’s answer to footwear woes and has achieved a full-blown cult following ever since Balenciaga dropped off its own iteration in December 2016. But it isn’t just Instagram’s It girls and fashion’s front row who love the hybrid shoe. Cardi B even immortalized Balenciaga’s most in-demand sneaker (next to the chunky Triple-S) in her song “I Like It.”

Thankfully, the sock-like shoe isn’t served up only by high-fashion labels like Balenciaga or Vetements. Nike and Reebok have also hopped on the trend. Shop some of our favorites ahead.
