Recently, fashion’s hottest designer, Virgil Abloh, premiered his second line of men’s clothing for Louis Vuitton. One stand out piece? purple sneakers.

It might come as a shock if you’ve been wearing white sneakers for a while now, but we think it’s a trend worth trying in spring 2019. Check out some stylish purple sneakers for men and women below.




1. New Balance Classics

These New Balances work for running a marathon or just running errands. They feature a no-frills athletic, and we think it’s just simple enough to rock a purple color.

2. Reebok Lifestyle Classic Leather

Reebok’s classic leather trainers have become a huge throwback trend over the past year, and their chunky look makes them a great purchase for 2019. This lilac color makes them a little more unique, which is a necessity in a sea of white leather shoes.

You can’t go wrong with Puma classics – especially when 80s nostalgia is at an all-time high. Maybe leave the giant laces in the 80s though.
