Let's track the sport-chic footwear trend: first, there were sneaker wedges. Then came the Nike Free, followed by a brief resurgence of the Nike Air Max. Next in line is the skater slip-on. Brands from Tory Burch to Alexander McQueen are putting their spin on the silhouette—whose original credit belongs to Vans—with illustrative prints and luxe materials.
