Psychedelic colors are making a comeback this season. The DIY-inspired trend showed up on several runways during the spring ’19 fashion weeks, including Eckhaus Latta in New York, Christian Dior in Paris and Prada in Milan. The technicolor hue is predicted to carry over into the fall, as tie-dye shoes were seen at the Off-White show in March during Paris Fashion Week.
The choice for designers to feature tie-dye is no doubt a nostalgic nod to the 1960s. With Woodstock celebrating its 50th anniversary in August, and the rise of civil rights movements in recent years (think Black Lives Matter and #MeToo), the trend captures the spirit of the times as much as it did five decades ago.
Celebrities are also taking on tie-dye. Both Kim Kardashian and “Superbad” actor Jonah Hill have been seen wearing the pattern. Musician John Mayer even tie-dyed his Off-White x Nike Air Prestos.
With a number of music festivals coming up and warm weather approaching, tie-dye is showing up everywhere from tops to shoes. Here are 10 tie-dye shoes that you can shop now, including choices from Nike and Converse.
