The Sneaker Trend Jennifer Lopez Can't Stop Wearing Is on Sale at Nordstrom
It’s safe to say that Jennifer Lopez had a memorable 2019. She got engaged to Alex Rodriguez, won the CFDA Fashion Icon Award, and had a plethora of standout style moments. Picture lots of snakeskin print staples, plenty of luxurious Coach pieces, and a particular pair of white platform sneakers that she wore on repeat all year.
Whether en route to the gym, out for a day of shopping, or traveling the globe, J.Lo tends to reach for her white Alexander McQueen sneakers most often. The sporty kicks boast a platform rubber sole, a vibrant-hued panel in the back, and a removable padded insole for some extra support and comfort. It’s easy to see why these comfy-chic sneakers have become a regular in her off-duty outfits.
Lopez’s exact white sneakers go for $490, with the price varying slightly depending on the color. That’s certainly not pocket change, but considering the number of times she’s worn them in the last year, it’s fair to assume they have a pretty low Cost Per Wear by now.
If you’re not ready to spend close to $500 on a new pair of shoes (I, for one, am not), you should focus your attention on Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly sale, which currently has a slew of similar styles available for much less, like Topshop’s Cuba Platform Sneaker, a near-perfect replica of the ones Lopez can’t stop wearing.
Just like Lopez’s go-to pair, these Topshop sneakers are designed with a thick sole that offers the perfect amount of height, a lace-up front, and a contrasting back panel, all for a fraction of the price. And according to customers who have purchased them, they’re not only super cute and affordable, but comfortable, too.
If you’re willing to spend big bucks on a totally splurge-worthy item, then you should add Lopez’s exact Alexander McQueen sneakers into your lineup. But if you prefer to save, consider scooping up some similar styles while they’re on sale during Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly sale. Shop everything below.
