Chunky trainers were undoubtedly the biggest footwear trend of 2018, with everyone from adidas, FILA and Nike to luxury players like Gucci fighting for a slice of the market. Of course, trend-led brands like Jeffery Campbell weren’t to be left behind – the label dropped quite a few enlarged silhouettes through the year, even debuting the Lo-Fi sneaker which bore a much too close resemblance to the Balenciaga Triple-S. Now, the L.A.-based brand is causing controversy online over its Hotline Dad sneakers, which appear almost like a hybrid version of the Triple-S and the adidas YEEZY 500.

The neutral, off-white leather and suede upper with its bulky, panelled details and mesh elements is akin to the Kanye West-designed YEEZY 500, whilst below lies an exaggerated, creamy midsole that’s incredibly similar to Demna Gvasalia‘s standout sneaker for Balenciaga. Get a closer look at Jeffrey Campbell‘s Hotline Dad sneakers above – you can pick up a pair over at Shopbop for $135 USD.
