A Brief Study of Bella Hadid's Sneaker Game

A Brief Study of Bella Hadid's Sneaker Game

When it comes to style, Bella Hadid has always been known to excel in the footwear department.

With a couple of trainers from the Off-White™ x Nike collaborations signed by Virgil Abloh himself in her collection, coveted pairs including Travis Scott’s Jordan 1s, and a pair of Lucien Clarke’s Louis Vuitton trainers with a special signature, the supermodel’s sneaker arsenal is one to envy. From the Swoosh, the model has worn classic Air Force 1s, Shox, Stussy’s Air Zoom Spiridon, Dunks – you name it – and also fronted a Cortez campaign in 2017.

However, lately, Hadid seems to have ditched the Swoosh for other labels including Salomon, ASICS, and New Balance – much like most of us that keep taking L’s on the SNKRS app (not that I think Bella Hadid even needs the app to secure her pairs, but still).

The supermodel was spotted rocking a pair of Kiko Kostadinov GEL-QUANTUM LEVITRACK‘s in London in August even before they were released and has since been spotted in the pair a handful of times – both on her Instagram as well as off-duty paparazzi pics. She’s riding the ASICS wave into 2022, and we’re loving it.

Of course, she’s also been wearing Salomon, much like everyone else following the Gorp Core movement. She’s partial to the S/LAB XT-4 ADVANCED in a bright red color, and has been wearing them multiple times alongside another pair of XT-6’s in a monochrome grey.

Then we’ve got New Balance, with the popular 550 being an instant go-to as well as some of the label’s other classic silhouettes.

The list wouldn’t be complete without adidas. Much like Rihanna, ASAP Rocky, and the world, Bella has jumped on the Samba train. Spotted in multiple colorways of the retro silhouette, Hadid has singlehandedly resulted in a spike in Depop searches for the shoe.

In addition to the Samba, another retro silhouette that seems to have made multiple appearances is the Forum, as well as the adidas x Wales Bonner Nizza Low. She’s also done a 180, and wore Kanye West’s futuristic YEEZY 450 in “Cloud.”

Lastly, another collaboration worn by Bella is the Prada x adidas Luna Rossa in the black colorway, making us excited about the upcoming collaboration that is rumored to release soon (teased by ASAP Rocky).

The list of shoes that Bella Hadid has worn is incredibly long – we’ve barely scraped the surface. When she’s not rocking a pair of trainers, she’s joining the post-sneaker society in a pair of loafers, or a chic leather boot.

As a woman who’s been into footwear for a long time, it is refreshing to see Bella’s effortless take on sneakers, wearing both incredibly expensive and limited-edition releases, as well as general silhouettes that won’t cost you more than $50.

Needless to say, she wears her shoes, which might just mean she’s got the best footwear in the game.
