Proof "Dad Shoes" Are The Next Big Trend

Who knew your old man's style was ahead of the curve?


By now, we’re all familiar with the dad hat, but what about the dad shoe? Yes, we are talking about the sneakers middle-aged men wear while walking around Disney Land with the fam. Well, it turns out your old man's style was actually ahead of the curve. Dad trainers are now officially this season’s hottest trend for your feet. And the latest dad sneaks to enter the world of footwear? A Wood Wood x ASICS Tiger creation. 

In honor of its 15th anniversary, Wood Wood partnered with sportswear giant ASICS to create a ‘90s era runner. The fresh sneaker is a actually recreation of the GEL-DS Trainer OG, but this time around, the shoe is fitted in a new metallic colorway, complete with red and blue accents. 

With all things ‘90s currently raging back into style, it’s no surprise Wood Wood x Asics' footwear is following suit with a chunky trainer. Take a closer look at the normcore sneaker above… Maybe dad style, on the low, is actually some of the coolest fashion out there. 

The Wood Wood x ASICS GEL-DS Trainer OG will launch exclusively on May 6 at the ASICS Tiger outlet in Osaka, as well as at Wood Wood’s online and physical stores.
