The 9 Best Sneakers for Spring According to Your Favorite K-Pop Celebs
These are the go-to trainers of BLACKPINK, Tiffany Young, NCT 127 and more.
On stage, K-pop artists are typically styled in glamorous costumes — often matching from head-to-toe too if they are members of a group like YG Entertainment‘s four-piece girl group, BLACKPINK, or SM‘s youngest boy band, NCT 127. Like most 20- or 30-somethings, however, the megastars are frequently spotted in trendy sneakers during their downtime.
At the recent Coachella 2019, for instance, Jennie and bandmate Lisa both swapped their embellished mini skirts and laced-up boots for comfier pants and trainers following their history-making performance.
