The Best Sock Sneakers of 2018

Cardi B sings about them, we saw them all over the runway, and they don’t seem to be going anywhere: sock sneakers are the new black. In all shapes and sizes (though a black and white color combo seems to be the norm), the cult footwear item has infiltrated collections around the world in a posh and streetwear-savvy take on athleisure. We highlight some of the best offerings of the year’s biggest trend.
