Trends are such strange things, aren’t they? One minute, something can be old and dated, and just a few minutes later, they’re the biggest fashion statement of the year. Whether you like it or not, the ‘dad shoe’ trend is here to stay, and the latest brand looking to challenge Balenciaga’s current reign is British sportswear label Umbro.

A rugged rubber outsole adds to the normcore vibe, and Umbro branding on the tongue and lateral side round off the design of the UmRunner.
Although we pretty much know nothing about the Umbro UmRunner, it’s slated to drop sometime in the very near future. What do you think of Umbro’s entry to the dad shoe race? Are you a fan of their somewhat clean designs? Should the British brand have done something even more extravagant? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!
