luxury chunky sneaker style by jeffrey campbell from shopbop

that extra chunky sneaker style tho

Like it thick? The biggest statement of 2018 fashion trends (pun intended) is an exaggerated, extra chunky sneaker. Luxury fashion leader Balenciaga paved the streets extra wide with the launch of their now infamous Triple S Trainers for women. Now sold out in stores and across nearly every site across the web, if you were lucky enough to get your hands on a pair, hold on with a double grip. Missed out? Fret not.

No crystal wear or decanters of aged scotch. In fact, everything was quite ordinary in the 4-star hotel corporate suite. A faint smell of room service sat in the air, I had taken a shot of the city when I first arrived of the bedroom view. It was beautiful, but not breathtaking. photography:ME | camera:iPHONE X   The room had a familiar feel to it, as if you had been there before. But perhaps it was just the standard beige wallpapered bathroom and bleach white sheets you find in most hotel accommodations. Yet, something about it felt new, inspiring even. Maybe it was just the jet lag and 30-hour trip with minimal stimulation. Whatever it was, the shift from dreamworld to reality was inevitable. I felt excited. As if I had just found something that had been lost for so …
