I've been ducking and dodging the ugly shoe movement for a few seasons now — but no matter how hard you may try, there is truly no escaping the chunky sneaker trend. But part of my high-heel-loving soul is starting to actually find the oversized sneakers somewhat appealing, especially the ones celebs like Emily Ratajkowski have been gravitating towards.

Ratajkowski recently posted a picture on Instagram wearing a sweater dress that was cleverly styled with a blazer, a dad hat, and the coolest dad shoes I've seen around: the Zenith by Joshua Sanders ($385; farfetch.com). These aren't your average ugly sneakers. The Italian brand's version is lightweight and has a slimmer silhouette that's not as obnoxiously over the top as it's predecessors. 

Even Kylie Jenner, who loves a sexy shoes couldn't resist Joshua Sanders version of the trendy sneakers.

Ratajkowski kept it low-key in a black-and-white version of the sneakers, while Jenner jazzed things up in a silvery pair. And the Zenith sneakers are also available in many more shades, from purposely dirty pairs with a red and blue stripes to pristinely white versions that are definitely easier on the eyes.
