Dua Lipa has been on the fast-track to style icon status since the arrival of her much-celebrated Future Nostalgia album earlier this year. In addition to the impressive feat of generating hype and hit singles throughout a global pandemic that prevents touring and the usual promo trail, the singer has also established herself as a fashionable force to be reckoned with.
Now, after a series of style turns that saw the star channel everyone from the late Princess Diana to Clueless‘ Cher Horowitz, it seems Lipa has found a firm favourite footwear choice in her Prada Cloudbust Thunder sneakers. She’s been pictured sporting the chunky shoes on a number of occasions and we’ve now been entirely won over.
It appears Lipa’s love affair with Prada’s stompy sneaker began sometime in July, when she first stepped out in a black pair of the mesh-and-rubber trainers. Like all torrid affairs, the relationship accelerated swiftly, with Lipa soon moving the shoe out of the casual daytime date category and into an evening slot – often accompanied by her actual boyfriend, Anwar Hadid. By October, Lipa was pairing her favourite trainers with black tights and a Chrome Hearts mini dress and Mawi tote bag.
The Prada sneakers, which retail for $1500, are a hot commodity in the fashion world right now, and Lipa’s evident devotion is only going to see waitlists stretch even further. Best to pop your name down now! Shop the style below.
