After years confined to sweaty living room workouts, paint parties and dad jeans, sneakers are running amok. Everywhere you turn, there’s another pair breaking out of its domestic chains. Maybe you’ve spotted them at the office paired with a suit? No big deal, daddio. It’s a thing. Or how about at the opera, masquerading as wedges? Been there. The only rule of sneaker-wearing this winter is that there are no rules. You can sport them with your finest tweed like Chanel or turn them into knee-high boots like Jeremy Scott. Go ahead, wear them willy-nilly. It’s what all the kids are doing these days.
