Top 100 Shoes Trends in 2019

Waterproof Hemp Sneakers to Holy Water-Filled Sneakers

— January 26, 2020 — Fashion
The 2019 shoe trends are innovative and pay attention to design no matter what kind of silhouette the footwear model is. There are a plethora of boots, heeled silhouettes, casual sneakers, performance sneakers, collaborative design, sandals, and much more.

One of the notable shoe trends are by DopeKicks -- its new Hemp Shoes are entirely waterproof and friendly to the environment. It rests on cork insoles within the shoe and deceitfully are highly durable even with its organic construction throughout. Another great shoe trend of 2019 is by none other than Nike -- its iconic Air Max 97 sneakers arrive in the iteration entitled 'Jesus Shoes.' The midsoles are filled with 60ccs of holy water that is drawn from River Jordan to be blessed.
