In multiple interviews, Emily Oberg has confessed her love for Chanel sneakers, calling the trainers her favorite kicks. No, the KITH Women creative lead wasn’t referring to the Chanel x Pharrell x adidas Originals Hu NMD’s — although those are to die for as well — but an older silhouette that almost resembles a New Balance sneaker. Fitting perfectly into the dad sneaker trend, the shoe features a moderately chunky appearance and sees Chanel’s iconic “Double C” logo on the lateral. It’s the perfect footwear for classy girls who don’t necessarily want to wear heels all the time.
We’ve been seeing a variety of Chanel sneakers on Instagram lately, and while most of these styles have been discontinued, it doesn’t mean that you can’t cop a pair for yourself. Read on for the top three websites to hunt for the rare, vintage Chanel kicks of your dreams.
