Dad fashion is the best fashion, and the unlikely trio of Kate Middleton, Kourtney Kardashian, and Sarah Jessica Parker are continuing to prove it. The celebrities have all recently rocked the shoes your old man probably wears while cutting the grass — New Balance sneakers.

Keeping with the chunky sneaker trend, the stars have paired their New Balances with pretty much everything you can imagine: athleisure, jeans, and, in Kourtney's case, $400 joggers (sweatpants, but make it fashion). Not only are the shoes durable (there's a reason dad wears them to mow the lawn), these stars are making the case that the sneakers also are fashionable.

It goes without saying how different these celebs and their respective styles are, which only shows how versatile these sneakers can be. Thanks, in part, to the chunky sneaker trend, New Balances act as a funky addition to whatever kind of outfit you're feeling. The shoes can tone down a bold dress, heighten a casual sweatsuit, or finish off any athleisure look you've got.

With a pair of dependable sneakers like New Balances, you've got something you can wear to work, to the gym, and to the farmer's market.

Face it: You have more in common with your dad than you think — you might as well add New Balances to that list and gain something in common with these stars too. Shop their looks below.
