The ever so popular chunky sneakers show no signs of slowing down as we enter a new decade. 2020 introduces a wealth of new designs, silhouettes and technical detailing in a bid to add fresh new energy to the oversaturated trend.
While the Balenciaga Triple S will always be on the top of my chunky sneaker wish list, my bank account has other plans for how I spend my money this year. Instead, I am opting for the cheaper alternative from the high street.
