5 Affordable Chunky Runners We Need This Season

The 90s called... they want their runners back.

Say goodbye to your basic runners. For the past few months, it has been all about chunky runners and from the fashion world, the chunkier the better!

Although it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, chunky runners are everywhere.

Since the beginning of last year, the casual but trendy look has being adopted by nearly every gal. Luckily, the versatile runner can be worn with literally anything. From mom jeans to jogging leggings, the runners are a perfect clothing item to have in your closet.

Hello… Again

Hugely popular in the 90s, the runners became a huge part of the trainer culture especially on the glam catwalk. It’s now 2019, and the runners have delivered an even better impact and the return has proved successful.

A-list celebs, bloggers and your best friend have jumped on the band wagon, so it’s not too late to find your perfect pair. Online websites such as Nasty Gal or PLT have a huge variety of colours, trends and styles. Penneys even have a section and the best part is the runners are affordable! (That’s if you’re not buying Balenciaga obvs!)
