I know sneakers in lolita is usually a controversial topic but I think the right kinds can really look cute with a coord. So I want to ask:

>Do you think sneakers can work with lolita?
>If yes/no, why?
>What types would you wear with your own coords?

I’m gonna try to post some coords with sneakers here, if anyone wants to share some examples themselves, that’d be nice!

they don't work because sneakers don't look polished. even casual coords need to have a more polished look, that's why most normie shoes don't work well either. i'm sure some may be okay, but suitable shoes will always look better.

>>Do you think sneakers can work with lolita?
Yes definitely
>>If yes/no, why?
As long as they look cute, match the coord and aren't dirty I don't see why not. They should obviously match the theme of the coord, wearing sneakers with an OTT princessy coord can look as odd as wearing super fancy shoes with casual.
>>What types would you wear with your own coords?
I like high top sneakers, most of the time they don't look too sporty. I think changing out the shoelaces can add a nice touch too as well as a bit more room for color coordination

They go great with casual. Most people who wear lolita daily don't enjoy walking around in high heels, so having flats and/or sneakers as comfortable options are nice.

>>Do you think sneakers can work with lolita?
Depending on the coord and the style of the sneaker, yes
>>If yes/no, why?
I think they work well with casual sweet coords or coords that take inspo from other j-fashions like fairy kei. I can’t see sneakers work well with classic or gothic unless it’s like a super toned down, casual look and even then it would probably still look off. I don’t think sneakers with more OTT coords look good. They also need to be clean and be cohesive with the coord too.

Honestly I will always prefer tea parties for myself but I think pastel sneakers with cutesy designs and ribbons work best. I actually think the Puma Fenty Rihanna ones would look really cute with lolita.

Yeesh, that one is a stretch. I would like to make a jfashion or altfashion coord with that jacket and shoes but it would have to be a different dress. Maybe she should have gone with a white/blue dress that has pink accents? Well, at least she tried so I give her props for that.

I want to see someone wear Balenciaga's in lolita, I wonder if it's possible to pull off (I think chunky trainers look best in lolita). I lowkey really want pic related, but they're £725 and I could buy brand with that money

Pretty much all trainers come in big sizes, as they're mostly from western brands. For alt brands there's YRU and Irregular choice (they occasionally release cute but normal trainers), but just keep your eye out for cute releases (or shoes that you could customise) from Puma, New Balance, Sketchers, Nike, Vans ect (just by looking at the brands people are wearing in this thread).

You can put as many bows and lace on your sneakers but it still will look off with most of lolita styles. I've never encountered one outfit beside pink were I liked sneakers with. It takes off the elegant from lolita.

People should stop with the argument >but muh comfortable feets!11
There are tons of comfortable shoes for lolita instead of uggo sneakers, besides most of the sneaker designs will still hurt and damage your feet permanently. What's next jersey pants?
Forget that other argument >but precious angelic pretty put out sneakers too uwu
Most of lolitas agree that not everything put out from brands is lolita. Sometimes you have to sell some generic kawaii stuff to lure in future customers.

But please go ahead and wear your oh so comfortable sneakers and call it lolita. Lolita rules exist to be broken and the fashion clearly isn't edgy enough. And if we are at it we should totally encourage wearing those Demonia boots too.

Yeah, I'd been searching for awhile. Found them in the pink but wanted blue. Eventually blue showed up on a Japanese secondhand site and I snatched it immediately. With all the shopping service fees and EMS it was really expensive but totally worth it, they were one of my holy grails.


Thank you!


Funnily enough I did mostly buy them for fairy kei, but am also planning sweet ouji coord (AP School March Romper). I think AP releases items that can be used in fairy kei but honestly, I don't think anything they come out with, even if it's more casual, is not intended for lolita. They've never even advertised themself as a fairy kei brand as far as I'm aware, just lolita.

You could look around for Angelic Pretty's sneakers, though they didn't release too many. I'd also recommend looking at sneakers from Swimmer, which you can mainly find on Japanese sites like Mercari and Rakuten Fril. Liz Lisa might have released some that could work too. And then popular brands like Converse, Vans, Fila and Superga sometimes release sneakers in pastel colors. The Toy Story Bo Beep Vans are an especially cute example, but you'd have to find them secondhand and in your size, and they probably wouldn't be cheap. You can find various cute pastel sneakers on Taobao too.

This, flats don't have the presence of platform sneakers. They also remind me of normie stuff too much, especially when it's just a plain pair.

I missed out when converse was selling these satin ribbon converse. I think they would be great in coords.

>Do you think sneakers can work with lolita?
So long as you're not planning the coord of a lifetime and you're wearing something with actual shape and not ratty converse it's fine. A better shoe could do a better job but so long as it has shape and matches the color scheme it's always better than flats.
>If yes/no, why?
I think a lot of the issues people have with sneakers is ptsd from dirty itas and larpers/conlitas who cannot conceive of wearing anything short of a head to toe full coordinate much less wearing lolita outside of a meetup. I wear lolita to work very often and while I'm not adverse to wearing heels, if I know I'm going to have a busy day I'm not going to want to wear anything that hinders my movement too much.
>What types would you wear with your own coords?
I have some filas I break out every blue moon, but I feel more ashamed about posting after seeing some coordinates with dirty nasty filas. I know they're not technically sneakers either but since they were brought up on the board, I wear my docs more than either heels or sneakers but I'm also someone with a mostly goth wardrobe so it doesn't clash quite as badly as some boots on this thread have.
On a similar note, I'd like to add that I'd rather see boring sneakers that do just fine enough to blend into an outfit than see some girl walk around in uncomfortable fire hydrant red teaparties that do worse than nothing for the silhouette of her coord.

I think flats are too plain on top. Atleast sneakers come in some kind of cool color or have lacing, and shape the foot in a more flattering way

Unless you have really narrow feet, and maybe you do I don’t know you, flats squash out your feet and make them look fat, even if they’re really just normal feet. Flats with support built in are better but they’re not as common.

Hey guys, Anon who ordered the AP Pop Girl sneakers here. Much to my shock, they arrived today, two or three months before expected. God I love Japan Post. Thought I'd provide some info for anyone interested, as I remember at least one person in this thread asking about their sizing. I can only speak for the small though, as that's what I ordered. My shoe size depends a bit on the brand, but I'd say that generally I'm a 5 and a half. These pretty much fit perfectly. Maybe slightly tight? I'd recommend them for a 5 or 5 and a half. But unfortunately, for sneakers, they're not really some of the most comfortable I've worn. Not the worst, but not as comfortable as I'd like sneakers to be. On the even more unfortunate side, the platforms are trying to come off on one shoe already. I tried them on once, wore them a bit (but was just sitting, not walking around), then noticed this when taking them off. According to the original owner, they had never been worn, just sat in storage. So to be honest, I'm feeling a bit disappointed in the quality. Luckily, I don't think this should be too hard of a fix with some shoe glue, but it's still not ideal. Hope this was interesting or helpful for some.

Flats, like little slipper type flats, just don't stand out against anything. Sneakers are more balanced out against the skirt volume. I think other types of flat shoes are totally fine though. If you have a closed toe shoe with some straps going across the foot or the ankle, that looks much better than just a slipper. Flat oxfords are fine in classic too. I've also worn loafers with classic with a shoe clip.

>> No.10415417

I have a high arch so aside from having no arch support, flats also have no padding so there's no shock absorption. It feels like slamming my feet straight into the concrete when I'm out and about. I used to wear flats with jeans when it was the height of fashion but I think I'm well over them by now.

Yeah, I certainly wanted these more for the design than any expectations of good quality. I don't really mind how much I spent on them because of that, and what with shopping service fees and all I knew it was inevitable that I'd end up paying quite a bit for them. So I don't personally regret my purchase, I really wanted them and they are super cute, but yeah, I probably wouldn't recommend buying them for a lot of money unless you're like me and have your heart set on them for the specific design. Otherwise, there's probably better quality (and less expensive) sneakers for lolita, fairy kei, or any other styles you might want that for.

This is one of the reasons I like to take ootd photographs. If nothing else, you can look back on them a couple of weeks later and realise how bad certain items look on you long after the hype of a new purchase has worn off.

I stopped wearing flats a some months after doing this, it has its place but man it's neither flattering not comfortable. I have no idea why I wore them for so long. You really learn to appreciate how perfect all the "typical" cookie cutter lolita stuff looks after having experimented with a bunch of other loliables.

Same, but I'm someone who has experimented with the full range -- stilettoes, platforms, wedges, boots, sandals, etc.

I think some girls genuinely have feet problems, and there's probably some number that are just fat (in their case strappy lolita shoes probably cut into their ankles, and even a few cm heels may be difficult due to the extra weight).

I have no idea about the rest though. I get it if people are saying the shoes are hard like cardboard, but the heels aren't much to complain about.
