Katie Holmes Is Bringing Back Hook-and-Loop Sneakers: 5 Pairs Like Hers

There are many things that we miss about being a child. Saturday morning cartoons, not having to do our own laundry, having cannonball contests at the pool — the good old days. You don’t know what we are missing? The hook-and loop sneakers (a.k.a. Velcro sneakers). So simple, so easy, so retro!

You’re expected to switch to laces as you get older, but when you’re on the go, they can be a pain. That’s why we’re so grateful for celebs like Katie Holmes who are bringing hook-and-loop sneakers back into style — for adults! She’s been spotted wearing her white leather pair numerous times this spring already while out in New York. Her Acne Studios pair cost $390. But that’s okay! There are many similar options, which are often cheaper. Scroll down to find five pairs that we love from other brands.

New Balance


If we’re throwing it back, we might as well stick with a brand like New Balance! These sneakers are made of white leather like Holmes’ and feature two straps like hers as well. These sneakers are great for pairing with dresses or pants and we love the comfort collar.
