#1: Polyamide and rubber sock sneakers, Balenciaga
One of the most ‘Instagrammed’ sneakers of the season, we’re sure this pair needs no introduction. #2: Sophia Webster leather sneakers, $520, www.net-a-porter.com
Two things we love about this: the detailed handcrafted flowers that are signature to the brand, and the backless design that is reminiscent of the current raging slip-on sneaks trend in fashion. #3: Ganni cotton-blend sneakers, $475, www.modaoperandi.com
Slip-on sneakers are definitely having a moment in fashion right now and this pair with criss-cross floral ties that go all around definitely makes it one-of-a-kind. #4: Acne Studios leather sneakers, $576, www.net-a-porter.com
A huge nod to this season’s chunky, ’90s inspired ‘dad’ trainer wave. Love it or hate it, it’s definitely here to stay. #5: Isabel Marant leather sneakers, $544, www.net-a-porter.com
One thing you didn’t know: there’s actually a hidden wedge heel in these sneakers that are signature to the designer. #6: Suecomma Bonnie polyester sneakers, $450, www.farfetch.com
This looks just like a cross between a pair of Mary Janes and runners, but we’re not complaining. We love the embellished straps that add a touch of glamour to the shoes. #7: Leather sneakers, $1,160, Gucci
This is the perfect embodiment of the key sneaker trends this Pre-Fall: a thick sole and bulky construction, as well as its tongue-in-cheek take on the logomania in fashion right now. #8: Sneakers, Valentino
The sock sneaker style has been huge Pre-Fall, and with the comfort element this convincing (they most definitely fit like a glove), you definitely don’t want to be missing out on athleisure’s answer to sock heeled boots. #9: Platform shoes, Stella McCartney
This power silhouette of Stella McCartney’s rose to fame several years ago, and she hasn’t looked back since. From glitter stars to colour-blocked soles and shiny materials, the designer never fails to deliver her updates on this famed sneaker.   #10: Leather trainers, MSGM
A cool way to incorporate fitspo into fashion? Plaster an inspiring quote just like this ‘never look back it’s all ahead’ on the sides of the kicks. #11: Calf leather sneakers, Marc Jacobs
If something looks familiar here, it is the flower embellishments on the back of the shoes that are the same floral charms the brand’s iconic ‘Daisy’ perfume bottles have. #12: Calf leather sneakers, $1,760, Louis Vuitton
The iconic Archlight sneaker by Louis Vuitton, one of the key case-in-points of the ‘ugly’ shoe trend that remains a debate in fashion till today, is given an update this season as a sock shoe. #13: Shoes, Lanvin
Pair with some cropped bottoms to show off the branding on the velcro straps. #14: Patent sneakers, Jimmy Choo
Paris Hilton is that you? But seriously, this is a major throwback to the early 2000s, whereby embellished everything (think cell phones, books, and clothing) made you the coolest girl on the block. #15: Calf leather sneakers, Givenchy
The upside-down Givenchy logo adds a playful touch to this pair of sneakers. #16: Polyamide-blend sneakers, $1,050, Fendi
Definitely not one to miss, the Fendi FF Logo capsule collection with its ubiquitous double F monogram has been at the forefront of the designer monogram comeback in fashion. #17: Calfskin sneakers, $1,050, Chloe
With the comfort level of a sock shoe, height of a platform shoe, together with adjustable straps that of an outdoorsy, trekking boot, the Sonnie sneaker is one to look out for this Pre-Fall. #18: Calfskin sneakers, $1,300, Celine
If you haven’t caught on the enduring white sneaker trend by now, try this clean and minimalistic pair by Celine. #19: Visetos canvas sneakers, $525, Puma x MCM
In honour of Puma’s iconic Suede sneakers’ 50th anniversary, the classic shoe was reinterpreted this season, together with luxury label MCM. Yet another note-worthy, sports luxe inspired collaboration.
