* Sneakers for nailing the celeb-approved dad shoe trend
* Options for different personal styles (whether you’re a dad or not)
* Popular brands all under $100
Fashion sometimes produces surprising trends, and this year it was the dad sneaker. Chunky (like, really chunky) silhouettes and “outdated” colorways started popping up on the street, and have since become the footwear trend that everyone needs to try. You’ve seen them on everyone from Drake to Kanye, but also on younger celebs like Ansel Elgort and Timothee Chalamet.
To find the perfect pair of dad sneakers for this fall, we rounded up some of the best options from brands like Nike, Adidas, and Reebok. Pick out your favorite below – they’re all priced under $100 and ready for you to rock right now.
1. Nike Air Monarch IV
The Nike Air Monarch has emerged as one of the most iconic dad sneakers in 2018, with celebs and influencers like Drake and Russell Westbrook rocking the beefy sneaker. We recommend getting them in this all black colorway for the most authentic dad sneaker look.
2. Under Armour Micro G Pursuit
One way to channel dad vibes this fall is a great pair of running shoes. These Under Armour Micro Gs are slightly more modern with a mesh upper and a streamlined look, so they make a good choice if you don’t want to go full-on dad. They’re stylish and great for a workout too.
3. Reebok Lifestyle Classic Leather
Another classic sneaker that has made a big comeback thanks to the dad sneaker trend is the Reebok Lifestyle Classic. They’re made of a high-quality leather, and feature an iconic design that looks great with almost any outfit in 2018.
4. New Balance MW577
If you can’t literally steal a pair of New Balances out of your old man’s closet, pick up these all white MW577s. They’re quintessential dad sneakers, but slightly more low-key than some of the others.
5. Adidas Originals Swift Run
These Adidas are another good in-between dad sneaker with some modern touches. They feature a bootie construction and a stretch knit upper that provides all-day comfort, whether you’re working out or just running errands.
6. Steve Madden Russell
One of the grail-status dad sneakers is the Balenciaga Triple S, but for most of us, they’re far too expensive. These Steve Maddens make a great alternative, as they showcase the same statement-making chunky look for much less.
