Like walking on (chunky) clouds.

The last year has seen the meteoric rise of the chunky sneaker. No longer reserved for your dad, the ’90s throwback style is here to stay – and we’re not sad about it.

If you grew up in the Britney/Christina era, you’d be familiar with (or probably wore) the Skechers Energy, the style that featured on this iconic advertisement.

Fast forward to 2018, and the D’Lites are the revamped version of the Energy, updated to be lighter and sleeker. The silhouette’s been dominating, seen at fashion weeks, on influencers and in street style galleries worldwide.

Not only do Skechers D’Lites embrace the chunky aesthetic of the moment, but they’re literally the comfiest shoes you’ll ever wear (the memory foam sole is an actual dream).

The D’Lites are available in four colourways – Bright Blossoms (white with floral detailing), Latest Trend (in white and black with cute ribbons) and Biggest Fan (in soft baby blue) and retail for $119.95. 

If you’re a sucker for the ‘ugly’ sneaker trend and want to get involved, check out our take on the style in the gallery above.
